A spokesperson for the National Union of Journalists told Journalism.co.uk this afternoon that it understood all 200 staff at the tabloid were going to be fired.

NUJ general secretary Michelle Stanistreet said in a separate statement: "Closing the title and sacking over 200 staff in the UK and Ireland, and putting scores more freelances and casuals out of a job, is an act of utter cynical opportunism."


Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Um, why?

I mean, I understand the whole "standing up for your members" thing. But they were willing to work at a wretched hive of scum and villainy like a Murdoch tabloid. I'm not sure sympathy is wholly appropriate here.
