Has 'arty-farty' TES lost the plot?

28th October 2011 at 01:00

Believe me, I have tried, but I cannot suppress my rising irritation with the new-format TES. What is it with all these pointless pictures of eggs, and this week acres of space devoted to beetles and butterflies and biscuits and airline cockpits. You certainly enjoy giving the readers a challenge in finding where the real content is. The arty-farty fantasies of your designers do not create a product that I want to read.
