I know things are tough at the Daily Telegraph, but there’s a fine line between distress and outright dissent.
Writing about Gordon Brown’s conference speech, in which he refered to ”people on middle and modest incomes”, columnist Vicki Woods asks: “Gordon! You talking to me? Because if you are, you shouldn’t be. Middle income is everbody below Notting Hill fundies and newspaper editors and Jonathan Ross, isn’t it?”
Interesting reference to newspaper editors there. We know that Mr Ross is on that fabled £18million, three-year deal, so does Ms Woods really think that her editor Will Lewis, the man who’s laid waste to massed ranks of staffers, enjoys a package of similar proportions?
I don’t know, but I think we should be told.
