Roger Boyes probes Vienna Boys’ Choir

Catholic paedo scandal? The Times has the man for the job

You know how it is: you've got a hot story on the Vienna Boys’ Choir that needs writing up pronto, so you put your top man on the job...

Vienna Boys’ Choir caught up in sex abuse scandals, writes Roger Boyes

...and the next thing you know, the El Reg Friday Bootnote schoolboy innuendo sub-division is all over it.

We got in touch with a chum at the Times who admitted that "poor Roger always seems to end up with this kind of story". Our man did, though, refuse to be drawn as to whether the best way to protect the public from this sort of tomfoolery was to stick the entire Times website behind a paywall. ®
