The Telegraph types are getting ready for their annual summer party.
Axegrinder has had a glimpse at an invitation and it reads:
‘This year, the Telegraph Summer Party will be held at the Honourable Artillery Company, EC1, on Saturday, 28th June. Don’t forget to send your RSVP and remember to include, if you are taking one, the name of your guest. We need all RSVPs by Friday, 30th May.”
But there’s more to it – the cost-cutting management has banned the 11 Telegraph postroom staff from attending (who have turned out in good order every year) but are allowing their two supervisors to attend, providing they do not bring their spouses.
While on the spirit of giving, one of the postroom staff was given the sack just the other day and another will not be replaced when he retires in July.
Axegrinder says there should be protests and banners, until the postroom staff are allowed to attend. There’s still time to organise, chaps.
