…and on and on and on

The News of the Screws simply refuses to lie down and die. The Dirty Diggers organ (sorry) was closed down last year in the wake of hacking, phone tapping and other sundry unsavoury journalistic delights. It’s downfall was followed by arrest upon arrest as the investigations developed a tentacle like reach; at one point celebs were owning up to being a tad disappointed if they hadn’t been hacked by the Screws. To be Screwed Over by the Diggers crew was a badge of honour among the ‘slebs and sporting stars targeted by the grubby little Sunday publication. The latest public figure to be drawn into the murky saga is the brilliantly named April Casburn (a small Dorset village? I’m just popping to April Casburn for the papers Darling…) She has been snared by Operation Elvedon (the next village on?) for trying to sell information to the Screws. The Street of Shame continues its downward spiral into the gutter with various careers up the swanee as a result. Operation’s Weeting, Elevedon and Tuleta have so far resulted in the arrest and charging of dozens of journos and members of the police, security forces and public. Will the truth, the real truth, and nothing but the truth ever come out of this almighty mess? I somehow doubt it.
