Bio of Sean Fitzpatrick Appears On Lexis.com

Reporting his promotion to “Dear Leader” last week, we, along with other publications noticed that Lexis had forgotten or declined to mention he actually existed via their website ( at this point we could throw in another N.Korea analogy but it’s Monday so I’ll be kind)

.. they’ve now quietly thrown up a lovely photo and bio

Here’s the photo.. rumours abound that all Lexis employees will have to sport the same haircut (http://www.theguardian.com/world/gallery/2014/apr/24/north-korean-hair-cuts-in-pictures) as their new boss !
