The Blogger's Strike

Traffic rival Arianna Huffington is in a bit of bother with her unpaid writers. She is set to expand out The Huffington Post to the UK later this year, with leftie scribblers already touting themselves around as potential contributors.

They will be keeping a close eye on how her pending court case goes. Freelancer Jonathan Tasini has filed an action on behalf of nine thousand writers who he says are owed $105 million for the free content they provided to the site. There is even talk of a blogger’s strike.

Total Politics better watch their back.

Quote of the Day

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
