The Times prints cut-out Jimmy Savile Halloween mask


Too soon? Yeah, almost definitely. That's never stopped bad taste Halloween costumes before, though.

On page 29 of today's copy of The Times you can find your very own cut-out and keep Jimmy Savile mask. It's the kind of stunt you'd expect from The Sun, but 'the paper of record'?

In fairness, the mask is not from a photograph, but an illustration by Times cartoonist Peter Brooks, and thus could be interpreted as a satire of the idea that a tabloid paper might publish such an item. But it's also a Jimmy Savile Halloween mask.
