Silly suds. THE tomb of the 4th cen­tury saint who in­spired Santa Claus has been lo­cated un­der a Turk­ish church and ex­perts plan to open it. Let’s hope he’s still in good nick. THE BBC is ax­ing thou­sands of ridicu­lous job ti­tles like Con­tin­gent Work­ers’ Co-or­di­na­tor – pay­roll clerk – and The­matic Re­search Man­ager for re­searcher.
