Shiny Happy People

Well The People’s new website is certainly different. They’ve gone for a Pinterest-style grid layout where readers have the choice of deciding which stories make the top of the news, or simply have it in chronological order. Click through and its a Buzzfeed-lite assortment of listicles, gifs and photos. “F*cking plebgate by f*cking numbers” is how they are doing politics, for example. Apparently it’s “news without the boring bits”. All the brainchild of Trinity Mirror exec Sue Douglas. 

Looks good, but judging by the number of people who have actually clicked on the new thumb signs on the front page readers may need some time to get used to it…

    I didn’t even know you could decide the order of stories so that’s the first issue!

    Jones and Hinton still risible in front of the Home Affairs Committee.
    Hinton a tad more conciliatory but Jones either just thick or plain stupid.

    What charlatans like Red Ed can’t seem to understand is that before wealth can be spread around it has first got to be earned.

      NO! No! No!–socialism is all about spreading POVERTY around. Except for leaders of course who need to be shielded from common, dirty people-provided with the means to meet with potential investors in schemes to create jobs in India ( this means access to yachts), secure travel (first class or private jet) and places to work in peace (large country mansions and gated neighbourhood in Kensington).

    The most important story, Jeremy’s “Kylelights” doesn’t work and yesterday’s page “not found”. That’s the first and last time……………

    The average people reader is female, quite old (or behaves like an old natterer) and extremely superficial, surprised they haven’t had time to check it out yet? No.
