    Excuse the typo in subject heading. I'm watching the Royal Commission Hearings and trying to post this link to The Guardian at the same time.

    I just emailed the Daily Express ( British ) newspaper about this .They can only choose to ignore ! but as pointed out nothing ventured nothing gained .

    I Have to eat my words about the distribution of the Australian newspaper "The Saturday Paper" apparently it is now distributed widely in Victoria ,New South Wales ,Queensland ,to some extent in South Australia ,and a few places in Western Australia .While I don`t have numbers , it is obviously widely distributed.

    The newspaper devoted a full page to the Royal Commission/Jehovah`s Witnesses in Victoria after the first week of deliberations and was scathing about the religions handling of child sex abuse victims , which was well balanced in my opinion .

    "The Saturday Paper " , Saturday August 1 , Silent Witnesses Page 3.

    I purchased a copy from my newsagent today.If you live in Australia and you want a copy go to your nearest newsagent and request one before unsold copies are sent back to the publishers.

    The very first sentence of the article does have it in quotes actually

    The Jehovah’s Witnesses church let “repentant” child sex abusers return to the congregation, who were then kept in the dark about their crimes, an alleged abuse victim has claimed.
