Telegraph Axes Six Sports Writers

Roy Greenslade reports that six more journalists have been axed from the sports desk:

Ian Chadband, cricket analyst Simon Hughes, athletics correspondent Simon Hart, sailing and cricket writer Kate Laven, and Graham Clutton, who covered rugby and football for the paper from Wales… JA McGrath, the Australian-born racing columnist known as Hotspur who used to commentate for the BBC.

Still they have hired that great writer and former England batsman Kevin Pietersen…

      Simon Hughes is probably one of the best cricket writers of the lot , the Telegraph have gone stark raving mad , they cannot seriously think he can be replaced by Pietersen .

    The Telegraph is adopting the journalistic rigour of the Metro on a bad day.

    RIP Telegraph, although that’s what you get when. you abandon your core readership.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
