This is our Britain

The front page of 'The Sun' today was interesting...
It started with a photo montage of Britain, with images from the 4 nations: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Inside is 'where the Sun stands' on issues such as Immigration, NHS, Education, Energy etc.
Would make a nice exercise for students to explore the imagery that is used on the cover, or to play 'guess the stance'.
For example, is 'The Sun' in favour of a) more wind power or b) fracking to solve the energy crisis...
There's a useful guide inside to the 49 elements that make up the cover image....

Can you suggest what could be the missing 50th image ??
Can you spot John Terry ?


Update
Thanks to Steve Brace for leading me to the New Statesman's parody covers of other newspapers...
