It's always a refreshing change when the Oldham Echo's columnists actually have something to say which is relevant to current events. So it's nice to see Susan Lee take a break from her usual ersatz Glenda Slagg scribblings & criticise the management of Shop Direct for its handling of its Crosby plant closure (http://www./liverpoolecho.co.uk/views/liverpool-columnists/susan-lee/2009/01/30/don-t-forget-real-victims-in-this-100252-22814165/1/ ).
Lee begins her column by noting:
"You can tell a great deal about a company by the way it treats its workforce."
Too true, Susan, indeed you can. So presumably you'll be similarly critical of the decision by Trinity Mirror, proprietor of the Echo, to move the paper's printing operations to Oldham with the loss of up to 100 jobs, won't you? I look forward to next week's column in which you'll doubtless make those points.
