Defiant hack warns Trinity Mirror: “You can’t touch me!”

Not every journalist at the Birmingham Post and Mail, it seems, was left reeling by news that 85 jobs could be lost as a result of Trinity Mirror’s plans for a shake-up of the two titles.

Take feature writer Jo Ind. Two days after learning that her job ‘along with those of my fellow journalists, is seriously under threat”, she told readers, via her blog, of her reaction to the grim announcement.

‘But did I care?’she wrote. ‘No, not that day because my great great great great grandmother was Elizabeth Fry and if she could reform the prison service, then I was damn sure I could work out how to support my family even if I didn’t have a job in the depth of a recession. You can’t touch me Trinity Mirror, I’m made of noble, worthy, heroic, pioneering, life-transforming stuff!”

That’s the spirit.
