Reported in the Daily Telegraph:- Executives at Mirror Trinity have indicated to him (Moron) that they will honour the terms of his contract (compensation of £1.5 million) so long as he 'keeps his nose clean and doesn't rock the boat' by stoking the row over the faked Iraqi pictures and his subsequent dismissal, sources claimed. Further:- He had a two year rolling contract and earned (?) a basic salary of just under £450,000. This sum rises substantially when share options and the potential for bonuses are taken into account! Again:- Moron is understood to have lawyers on standby in the event that his former employers decide to contest the size of his settlement. And:- Former colleagues believe it unlikely that Trinity Mirror would risk going to court, where Moron might be in a position to embarrass the company by revealing what part other executives played in the photo fiasco. Finally:- Only four Mirror staff know the names of the sources, dubbed Soldier A and B by the paper. The decision on whether to as the journalists to identify the pair will be left Des Kelly, the paper's acting editor. Colleagues insisted yesterday he had not yet decided what to do. So, Piers Moron plunges deeply into the shite and still emerges smelling of roses. The acting editor, Des Kelly, is left with the clean up operation and we are still no nearer to knowing who these Soldier A & B scumbags are. Indeed, it is possible that they may even have no connection with the military at all. Bedford MKs are available on the open market, for about £4-5k; anyone who has ever been to the Beltring militaria fair will see plenty of MK's, all decked out in unit markings. Somehow I have a strange feeling that 'Soldiers A & B' will have irretrievably faded back into the slime whence they came. Nevertheless, duped or culpable, Piers Moron would appear to be in financial clover. Morally, he is still in the shite!
