    It gets more like the Huffington Post every day.

    Living in Hope says:

    How long before the poisonous Guardian finally snuffs it?

  4. 4
    Reactionary Twat says:

    Owen Jones, there’s a job at the Morning Star awaiting you.
    You’ll even be paid above the minimum wage, thankfully because money grows on trees.

  5. 5
    Obi Wan Kenobi Nil says:

    Is The Indy still on the go, well I never.

  6. 6
    BBC State Funded Agitprop says:

    No chance. Our BBC subscriptions will keep it afloat.

  7. 7
    Bluebottle says:

    It only goes on Wednesdays and Bank Holidays if there is a “r” in the month.

  9. 9
    Grammar School Boy says:

    Just a thought but why is the Independent named as such? It is anything but.

  10. 10
    Golly says:

    People who read the Independent should be rounded up, lined against a wall, and shot.

    I trust Mr Cameron is paying very close attention to this.

    BBC Rentboy says:

    This is bad for business.

  18. 18
    Rolf Harris is innocent says:

    A false Trade Description perhaps?

    We can get a couple of the three million unemployed to prepare the necessary Court Papers.

    Or simply we could just go to Remploy.

    Not still paying that are you? Has The Boy Jones been sacked, and if not why not? Then again he’s an amusing little twerp.

    I think back to the 1980’s and travelling on a early morning District Line train and almost everyone was reading The Indy.

  22. 22
    Living in 97.3% white Merseyside says:

    What about those who read “i”?

  23. 23
    Thomas from Tonna says:

    When I worked down a pit we did not just get 27 redundancies : everyone together with the pit ponies went.

    Madiba says:

    I’ve switched to the Mail, looking at the TOWIE girls with their ‘bikini bodies’ gives me a reason to keep going.

    Check out the DM today for Novak’s party last night in aid of The Novak Djokovic Foundation. A much more impressive guest list than were in the Royal Box on Sunday.

    His girlfriend stole the show!

    I liked the comment yesterday on Hurry up Harry blog – more wankerdom from The Guardian!

    Surely the future he’s got behind him is worth more than that.

  30. 30
    An Editor Writes says:

    We at the Dependent are horrified that our efforts to produce a biased, left-frothing compilation of non-news, ill-informed socialist opinions and global warming alarmism has failed to strike a chord with the British public. Our determination to provide a readable alternative to the Gordian has clearly run out of steam, though saying that we remain opposed against new technologies like steam that threaten to tear the fabric of our little Marxist world apart.

    To sum up, we didn’t get any of that lucrative social services advertising, like the Gordian did because as you know, your tax money buys some pretty big masturbatory ads and that would have kept us afloat for a while longer.

    Also no one read us or cares.

  31. 31
    Scottish Chav says:

    perhaps if they had had an Indy page 3 doing news in briefs everything would have been alright … am sure hattie harman would have got them out for the lefty lads!

  32. 32
    Great Granddad says:

    The best thing that can be said about the Indy is that it is not yet behind a pay wall. Takes me hours to find ways around all of those newspaper pay walls.

    crisp bwyant says:

    Surely his worthy behind has got a future.

    Link? Always love a bit of pointless DM shite with tits.

    Not a very complimentary remark in respect of Gladys the sandwich and her colleagues, boyo.

    dailymail.co.uk – one of the top stories. Fergie and her daughters were there!

    Sorry to put you off!

    Living in 97.3% white Merseyside says:

    Have you noticed that as one scrolls down one gets the same story again and sometimes yet again. No wonder the DM has the most hits, it has the best organised website.

  41. 41
    Carry Hole is a porcine homunculus says:

    it did.

  42. 42
    Owen Jones says:

    Ed Miliband is a traitor to the People’s Assemblies!
    All senior party officials are bourgeois oppressors of the sans culottes!

    Brothers and sisters and transops..I demand we march to Trafalgar Square and set up a guillotine to silence their treason and create a new People’s Republica; of the people, for the people , by the people , subject to oversight by Unite , and of course i shall be President.

    Bollocks to getting a pseudonym says:

    Jones will probably find the trust-fund-from-overgenerous-parents tree more useful.

  44. 44
    Bollocks to getting a pseudonym says:

    Must have been the western part of the District. I used to travel on that line, from Hornchurch to the City, and not many people in those working class areas I travelled through read the Indy.

    Why does Yougov have a question -” have you read one of these newspapers in the last six months?”- and then a long list.

    Of course I have! I’ve been to the dentist and been on a train or sat in a cafe.
    but i don’t BUY any of them Don’t even read them online unless its been flagged up from somewhere else, like here.

    Is it some sort of comfort question for the papers?
    Like the TV one that asks if you have watched at least 5 minutes of {TV channels list} in the past week.
    5 minutes? What does that prove? 5 minutes is barely the weather.
    What programs are only 5 minutes long?

  46. 46
    Owen Jones says:

    What me worry ?

    If all else fails,I might become a rent boy to the rich and famous.

  47. 47
    Rt. Hon Butch Cameron MP says:

    Len McCluskey?

  48. 48
    Owen Jones says:

    I had these people sacked from the Independant because they were class traitors to the Communist Revolution.

    Google the name of the paper and the title of the article, then click on the result.

    G doesn’t permit sites that are listed on its results to have paywalls, so the likes of the Times can’t stop you from reading the article if it knows you have come from Google (or they’d be taken out of the results).

    ….. to say nothing of the vile and corrupt daily heil

    Obi Wan Kenobi Nil says:

    Indeed, The Mail has become the toilet read of choice. The Sun really needs to up its game in the semi naked filly stakes.

    Did OJ get the bullet then … or does he work for the Guardian ? same difference .

    BTW congrats to all at Gweedo Towers. on a rare day packed with interesting news stories your wordpress associates star having ” oops — problem ” syndrome with the website . So it goes …

    Ho, how they will be crying for Murdoch now!! – A proper newspaper man, he bankrolled the NOTW for decades, as it made loss after loss. All that largesse has gone now, hope the MSM is happy now they have what they wanted….

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
