It has been suggested that this is just a re-branding exercise.

Re-appears the following week under another name.

Funnily enough, that was exactly my first thought.

I believe the Sun and the News of the world are already part of the same group.

They were both under the umbrella of "News International" during my days as a motorcycle courier.
I would assume that they still are.

Sun, NOTW, Times and Sunday Times are all owned by News International, which is basically run by Rupert Murdoch, his son James and Rebekah Brooks.

Quote from a DT article:


Quote:A spokesman for the company would not comment on whether News International will continue to publish a tabloid title on a Sunday. The News of the World has been NI's most profitable title for many years.

There are already industry rumours that the News of the World's stablemate the Sun could be turned into a seven-day operation. News International has already announced plans to move to seven-day working across its four titles the Sun, News of the World, the Times and Sunday Times and the internet domain name thesunonsunday.co.uk was registered two days ago, although the purchaser's identity is unclear.

My heart bleeds Wink It'll turn up in another guise of course. This will probably save the lovely Becky worse luck.
