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.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
