Journalists in revolt at the Leicester Mercury

Or so Axegrinder claims on the Press Gazette website:
There are grumblings of revolt at the Leicester Mercury where journalists and the commercial team have now reportedly been squeezed on to one floor in a bid to save money. 
Fair enough, we all have to tighten our belts in this age of austerity. But journalists have apparently drawn the line at plans to build a stage so that ad staff can hold their weekly prize-giving. 
Said Axegrinder’s mole at the Mercury: “Editorial have complained about this for a long time. They were often loud and disruptive when they were in their own department. It reached what we thought was a nadir when they started having these ceremonies in fancy dress. Now there is to be a stage.”
