Heh-heh. Good ole Rupey! All or nothing
No one – including me – saw this one coming. But given his past form, we should have. I wonder – is Rupe a chess player? He’s just sacrificed a bishop to release his queen – surely the Sun is the queen? – and while the king – the Times – remains moribund under its present editorship, something will happen, I suspect sooner than later. It’s certainly all or nothing in Rupe’s world, and they must be quivering round BBC and Guardian parts of town.
But, of course, there remains a bigger king beyond The Times. It’s called Sky TV. The next step, I guess, is Antioch. You shall weep salt tears from there, or thereabouts, Rupert.
