Better dead than read: the Guardian slashes obituaries

It’s hardly worth dying any more.

The Guardian, which has the best pair of eulogy pages in Britain, is cutting back from two pages to one, Press Gazette reports.

That’s bad news for the late lamented, both the famous and those more locally appreciated who receive sweet tributes from their community.

The Guardian is suffering heavy losses and has warned it can barely survive three years at the present rate.

Perish the thought.
