Text:Express publisher Richard Todd spoke yesterday about the recent resignation of editor Mike Binis, saying that the departure of any one staff member is not critical for the paper, as it is run on "professional publishing lines". "I cannot really offer you much - you really need to ask Mike why he left without giving the required notice," he told "He may have felt he was struggling as a result of his lack of journalist/writing training or experience but only he could confirm that. "Over our 13 year history we have had around 6 or 7 editors. Each brings different skills and each leaves for different reasons. Again you would need to ask each one." Five of those editors have come and gone within the last three years. Several, including Mr Binis, have cited disputes with Mr Todd as among the reasons for their departure. The current incumbent Oliver Hall's first issue hit the streets last week, but Mr Todd says he is only the acting editor. "A formal appointment will be made in the new year," he said.
