Mediaballs - Endependent

Good to see that penny pinching on the Street of Shame delivers quality reporting.

When well respected transport correspondent Barrie Clement left the Independent some years ago the title didn't replace him, relying on PA for most of its railway coverage.

So when the City Desk attempts to cover industry news this is what happens, with a bowler tip to @GarethBeazant:

There have also been grave concerns about the company’s £1bn debt pile, its lack of a chief executive and the precarious position of its two remaining rail franchises, East Anglia and e2e.


Surely no more preposterous than c2c, which is the actual name that NatEx has blighted the London, Tilbury and Southend franchise with.

However, somewhat wide of the mark!

Eye presumes the subs desk is also vacant?
