Brooks verdict welcomed by clueless bosses

BOSSES who have no idea what their staff are doing have welcomed the acquittal of Rebekah Brooks.

The former News of the World editor, who did not know where the paper’s stories came from, has become an icon for managers who prefer to focus on the ‘big picture’.

Joseph Turner, who runs a payday loan firm in Reading said: “I manage 536 people and I haven’t the slightest idea what any of them do.

“It’s never occurred to me to check and now I don’t have to. British justice has saved me a huge amount of hassle.”

Recruitment consultant Mary Fisher said: “Mrs Brooks can now secure a senior role in an organisation where there is no need to know exactly what everyone is up to.

“For example, banking, drug running or being commissioner of the Metropolitan Police.”

After taking an online quiz to find out which flavour of Pringles you are, your laptop does the decent thing and explodes hot chunks of plastic into your face.
