Will I get an invite to Sly's leaving do?

Not that she's leaving - yet. But Trinity Mirror has today confirmed it is to abandon the sale of titles in the Midlands and in London.

The sale strategy was trumpeted by Sly Bailey the company's chief executive and questioned by the NUJ at the time. The company's slash and burn strategy was always doomed to failure.

I have put out a statement this morning calling on the company to invest and stop asset-stripping. The union's reps from across Trinity Mirror will be joining the lobby of the Society of Editors Conference on 5 November as part of our Stand up for Journalism day.

* Trinity Mirror fact: Chairman Sir Ian Gibson was the senior non-executive director at Northern Rock. Great!
