Sky News to Up Online Coverage

Adam Boulton has found out that this blogging lark is harder than he thought and has brought in reinforcements, his blog is now re-branded Boulton & Co with more of the newsroom collaborating.
Sky News is re-launching next month as well, with a 7.30pm slot with a net focus. They are looking to get some of the UK’s most influential bloggers to comment on the news stories that are moving up across the web. Alas they can’t lure Guido out of his cellar, so if you fancy becoming a talking head, email their multi-media producer Ruth Barnett. Or else it will be Iain…

Nadine Dorries Fails Conference Security Check

Nadine Dorries MP is having problems getting a pass for the Tory conference, her researcher has already been refused a pass on the grounds that his pass was taken in front of a tree.

Is CCHQ trying to tell the garrulous Cornerstone supporter something?

Totty Watch : Polish Women’s Party

This poster for the upcoming Polish elections on behalf of the Women’s Party (Partia Kobiet) has the slogan: “Everything for the future… and nothing to hide.” Which, typically of politicians, is a barefaced lie since they seem to be hiding behind a poster.

“We are beautiful, nude, proud. We are true and sincere, body and soul. This is not pornography, there is nothing to see in terms of sex, our faces are intelligent, concerned, proud. We do not have our mouths open nor our eyes closed… All that interests us is the future, the position of women in society. We will open the archives of the former secret communist agents, we will make known their corrupt affairs,” says party president Manuela Gretkowska. Naked anti-communism? Gets Guido’s vote…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
