In an act of selfless charity, known philanthropist Rupert Murdoch has provided a job for the criminally-inept editor, Rebekah Brooks. Many employers would have baulked at the idea of re-employing a manager that failed to notice organisational corruption on a massive scale. Not so Mr. Murdoch, who is renowned for his open-minded attitude to socialists, environmentalists and victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
A spokeswoman for NewsCorp said: ‘Yes, Mrs Brooks is clearly the most ineffective manager we’ve ever had. But gross misconduct is not a barrier to employment, provided you how to keep schtum’.
