Do not read this magazine: Judge warns Rebekah Brooks trial jury off Private Eye

Do not read this magazine: Judge warns Rebekah Brooks trial jury off Private Eye

Thought the cover was clever, but a little safe by Private Eye standards.

We reckon a deal has already been made behind closed doors. The attitude of 'If i go down, we all go down' will have sent chills down the spines of all those implicated.

Hideous crime. Deserves a heavy sentence. But it won't happen.

Home Office tells illegal immigrants ‘Go home or face arrest’

Home Office tells illegal immigrants ‘Go home or face arrest’

Appears like a similar principle to the child catcher wagon from Chitty chitty bang bang...?

Lure the immigrants into the back of the truck with a promise of a job.

Ands & Buts: Why conversational copywriting needs to break the rules

@andrewboulton sadly not. He left the firing to someone else more experienced. i left to set up an agency with the copywriter.

The CD was 'relieved of his duties' sometime later... Karma.

Ands & Buts: Why conversational copywriting needs to break the rules

And that's what i call an interesting article Andrew.

I recall working with a particularly talented copywriter that asked if anyone in the studio had a thesaurus handy. The CD (Iain Ferguson) piped up and boastfully claimed "any copywriter that doesn't have a thesaurus, is no copywriter...Ogilvy said that."

I replied that Ogilvy also claimed in his book that billboard advertising wouldn't exist in the 1980's. The studio hushed (tumbleweed moment) and the talentless CD raged. I left the agency a week later...

Just thought i'd share that.
