Libby Purves is spot on – show respect
I recommend today’s opinion piece column by Libby Purves in The Times. She argues that the first rule of sacking is show some respect. She cites an example of how the BBC fired Ed Stourton, an admired Today presenter, in an ill-mannered fashion. Her point is: times might be hard, but dignity and respect still matter. Mine is: get it wrong and reputations will suffer.
