Mirror and Sunday Mirror Editors Sacked

Tina Weaver and Richard Wallace have been removed from the building, according to staff there.

The Mirror and Sunday Mirror are merging into a seven day operation…

UPDATE: Current People editor Lloyd Embley is the new editor of the Mirror.

UPDATE II: Apparently Wallace was not even allowed back to his office to get his things. Unlike Sly Bailey, these two won’t be leaving their jobs £14m better off.

UPDATE III:

    The whole leveson thing has been jumped on by the left and turned into a vendetta against one part of the media. Funny how they ignore the wrong-doing in the rest of the left leaning media.

Nobody will emerge from Leveson be they politicians current or ex or newspapers whoever they are or media be they state owned or privately owned unscathed….Cameron pushed the nucleur option when he set up Leveson and he didn’t even realise he had done so……………

    And your new ideas, beyond ridiculing everything the “Nasty Tories” do or don’t do, is….. do the same with more exclamation marks.

    Aimed at your level, from the cartoon film “Ratatouille”:

    “In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.”

    I was mightily amused to see Wallace’s Leveson appearance, in particular his denial of phone hacking at the Mirror.

    sorry but you are wrong the mirror yes because of its pension deficit it may need to merge with the yourshire post group, but the guardian has a trust fund and extracts money via autotrader so no joy their and i bet they would close the observer down and replace it with a 7 day guardian operation

    well it not over until a jury convicts to hang tight this could get messy and if coulsen going down i bet he will take a lot of others with him from the labour press as well

    will says:

    All the press were at hacking some more than others. i think the news international were doing it more than others. what about the telepgraph and expenses claims. what about all the leaks the guardian gets on government policies. What about Robert Preston and the run on northern rock. as i have said be careful ehat you wish for as this could get very messy. Some of the other organisations do not have deep pockets as news international

  80. 80
    Lefty fucktard says:

    I think the fact that the Guardian barely scrapes 200’000 readers is because it is so exclusive – we can’t all be opinion formers you know. In fact I think the less readers it has, the more it should be allowed to define the discourse surrounding our culture and government policy.

    Also, public sector workers should naturally be paid more because they are more highly qualified than all those thick people in the public sector. Some of their liberal arts degrees required over 5 hours a week of study, so they should be justly compensated by the taxpayer.

    I am thrilled that Cameron feels he has to bend over backwards to appease the likes of me, when I have no intention of voting for him anyway. It really does suit me down to the ground.

    Serious question: if an office summarily dismisses an employee, escorts him from the building and refuses to allow him to collect his possessions, what can he do about it? Especially these days he might have left something valuable there, like a computer of his own. Can he call the police and make a report for theft?

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
