Is questioning the News of the World a sign of The Times?

The Times has shown some decidedly unfraternal behaviour over one of the flagship campaigns of News International stablemate the News of the World.

The Screws has campaigned tirelessly for a new “Sarah’s Law” since the death of Sarah Payne, who was murdered in 2000. After piling the pressure on a succession of home secretaries, a pilot scheme to crack down on child sex offenders was announced ‒a fact trumpeted in the NoW.

But just days later, on April 10, The Times declared: “Sarah’s scheme could backfire, say child workers.”

“They could have shown just a little more support rather than rubbishing one of our major campaigns,” says my mole.
