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.

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

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

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

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.”
