Taking a stand

Some might say that tabloid journalists have made a significant contribution to the perceived Decline In Moral Standards over the years – a decline they take so much joy in documenting. Others might say they are the faecal residue that a dung beetle would find untouchable, who even the Necromancer Society would hesitate to invite to dinner.

But never let it be said that The Sun is afraid to speak up on questions of conscience. Take the knotty problem of murder, for example. An editorial recently proclaimed: “The five women murdered in sleepy Suffolk were all prostitutes. But they can’t be dismissed as tarts who asked for what they got.”

Glad we cleared that up
