A reader writes: “Sorry to keep banging on, but I have reached Page 16 of the Daily Telegraph and a headline that reads ‘School paedophile checks for festive volunteers.’
“Well, he would, wouldn’t he?”
Good point, well made. Then there was Page 12 of yesterday’s paper, littered with quotation marks and the with unnecessarily stupid downpage heading of ‘Flies more likely to wake men than babies’.
What thought process went into that masterpiece when the alternative ‘Flies more likely than babies to wake men’ would have been more accurate and a better shape as well? May the revise sub hang his head in shame.
And don’t even get me started on the error-riddled weekend sections. Let’s see how the former Daily Mail hard case Tony Gallagher sorts this mess out. If he needs a sub or two, my many angry correspondents will be happy to help.
