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…

    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.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
