If this is the "best subbing operation in the business"... - Press Gazette

If this is the “best subbing operation in the business”...

Last week, the Daily Mail advertised for news subs to “join the best subbing operation in the business”. Judging by Thursday’s paper, perhaps the Mail really does need an injection of new talent.

The paper reports that the two British backpackers accused of faking a robbery in Brazil are “both 23” and “graduated from Sussex University in 1997”. When they were both aged 11, presumably.

The Brazilian judiciary should prove a pushover for such talented legal brains.
