DC Thomson axes 59 jobs

Post by Digifiend »

Found this when checking the Press Gazette site, since the ABCs are due any day:

Job losses at the Press and Journal and Evening Express newspapers. Sounds similar to what happened with the comics, as the redundancies are due to outsourcing.

I'm not a fan. Anyway, my mum is at work at 6am, so having the TV on loud would disturb her.

Groan! This isn't the last of it. The magazines department is under review as well.

As this is more a sound than a word, at least in the context in which Digi is using it, could we perhaps have an appropriate smilie for anybody considering using the word in future posts.
