RIP the Pink Paper


Over the years, there have been lots of reasons to dislike it - at one point it was actively removing the b-word from articles - and some truly awful stories (my favourite was a 1988 front page that said Labour could win a by-election in Kensington, based on... asking a dozen people, none of whom had a vote, at 3am in some nightclub, not in the constituency. Yeah, that's a valid sample...)

But it's been better recently, I got my job via an ad in it, and I'll miss it.
