Telegraph Blogs Poach HuffPo Hacks

Telegraph Blogs readers have been enjoying the musings of Willard Foxton over the last seven days, with the former HuffPo contributor sharing his views on sexy Instagram photos amongst other things. Now Damian Thompson has pinched his second HuffPo blogger in two weeks, as Luke McGee joins the team on Monday.

The phrase brain drain comes to mind…

    Huffpo?

    Is it because Telegraph Blogs offered to pay them, whereas HuffPo didn’t? That IS HuffPo’s modus operandi these days isn’t it?

    Foxton’s output so far looks promising, and if it stops Thompson from blogging/any writing at all, then so much the better.

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.”
