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.

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 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…

Owen Jones says:

We also need Zil lanes.
