Surprise news this afternoon as Mail Online announces it is to merge with the Metro website:

“DMG media today announces the integration of Metro.co.uk  and MailOnline, effective immediately. The move will accelerate the development of Metro.co.uk  and let it capitalise on MailOnline’s commercial, editorial and technical expertise, building on the fantastic momentum achieved to dateWe look forward to welcoming Metro.co.uk ’s content, sales and development teams to MailOnline.”

Which means a load more London traffic…

    One thing that I learnt very early on in life is that people can learn the words of what a thing means and they can understand the words in a context and speak coherently about it but they do not understand what it means.
    for example if I say that I have a patriotic feeling, I am using a word that people understand but they may well not understand what I mean.
    People have all kinds of experiences in life and try to make sense of how they think things are compared with things that happen, not only by understanding of a thing in words but also in an immediate way.
    This is why politicians are so full of bullshit, they know some of the words but it seems often they have no idea what they are talking about.

    “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean- neither more nor less.”

    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

    “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master-that’s all.”

    Alice was too much puzzled to say anything; so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. “They’ve a temper some of them- particularly verbs: they’re the proudest- adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs- however, I can manage the whole lot of them! Impenetrability! That’s what I say!”

      “He ate more than the Carpenter, though,” said Tweedledee. “You see he held his handkerchief in front, so that the Carpenter couldn’t count how many he took: contrariwise.”

      “But he ate as many as he could get,” said Tweedledum.

      This was a puzzler. After a pause, Alice began, “Well! They were both very unpleasant characters—”

    MailOnline is a very poor product. I think that teenage techies with English as a second language turn it out and that no one in charge at DMGT ever looks at it to see how bad it is.

    The reports are riddled with errors, the captions are laughable, the headlines add more errors and the index-page puffs and headlines top the lot for awfulness.

    Does anyone care does it matter both papers are full of sh*t like most of their journalists. Lets face it both are rags not newspapers the stories are rarely news worthy and often feature made up bigoted views by ignorant people working on their personal agendas. The only result of this is more room for the spiteful bigots such as Hitchens to spout their lies and hate!

Dominic Cummings blasts Sir Jeremy:

“Heywood is more important than anyone in the cabinet, apart from Cameron and Osborne, and arguably more important than Osborne. He sits right next to the prime minister. He has him completely by the balls and Cameron does not do anything without Heywood’s permission.”

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.
