Mirror Slump Eases As Sly Slinks Off

Sly Bailey might have only been shown the door by Trinity Mirror two weeks ago but there is already reason to celebrate as the newspaper group reported a rise in profits this morning. The Mirror‘s parent company made a pre-tax profit of £35 million in the last six months, up 21% year-on-year. The improvement has been attributed to a wave of cost-cutting measures implemented by Trinity Mirror bosses over the last few months.

No longer having to pay Sly’s huge pay packet might also have something to do with it…

      Make money?
      Who would want to do such a grubby,dirty little thing as make a profit?

      I write for the benefit of left wing liberal humanity. But my words should be free at the point of use for all!

      The government embrace this philosophy and bung us £190 million a year to hide the losses.

        Presumably you write your ‘pearls of wisdom’ pro bono, rather than expecting anything as grubby as a salary.

    £7million does seem rather excessive for a newspaper bint, dear.

    Putting it plain, simple English. Constant reviewing of Human capital Investments for impact and cost effectiveness.
