Suck on this

Today's last edition of Murdoch's News of the World had some subtle messages for his British Roger Ailes Rebekkah Brooks who remained wealthily employed while they lost their jobs.

Have staff who put together the News of the World's last ever crossword included some subtle hints for News International's chief executive, Rebekah Brooks, the former editor who told them that the newspaper was to be shut down today?

The Independent's Whitehall Editor, Oliver Wright, has pointed out a few interesting elements in the quickie crossword on page 47. Its clues include:

• Brook (6)
• lamented (8)
• Prestige (6)
• Stink (6)
• Catastrophe (8)

• Digital protection
• Less bright
• Chair
• Pest
• Cease
• Criminal enterprise

The NOTW online puzzle also has some not-so-puzzling clews:

1. Lead astray
5. Cry
19. Unctuous
22. Fume

2. Narrow minded
14. Settle
16. Feeling
17. Insensitive

Aw bollocks, just buy a Sunday Sun and get a Page 3 Girl, too.
