        ++ Breaking News – Murray wins 2013 US Tennis Open! ++

        Damn! Read the script early.

          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!


          • Carry Hole is a porcine homunculus says:

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


          • Living in 97.3% white Merseyside says:

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

            Sorry to put you off!


          • Carry Hole is a porcine homunculus says:

            it did.


          • lojolondon says:

            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….

    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.

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

    Grammar School Boy says:

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

      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.

    Golly says:

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

    Loopy Lou says:

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

    BBC Rentboy says:

    This is bad for business.

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

      Innocent times.

      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.

    Thomas from Tonna says:

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

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

    Madiba says:

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


    • 56
      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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

      Time wasted.

      It’s still all shit.

      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.

        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?

      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).

    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.

    Owen Jones says:

    What me worry ?

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

    Rt. Hon Butch Cameron MP says:

    Len McCluskey?


  21. 48
    Owen Jones says:

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

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

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!
