HeffPo Stumbles Onto the Scene


Guido always welcomes competition, but he barely noticed the Heffington Post slip onto the radar this morning. Clearly not willing to share Guido’s nominative pearls of wisdom, the Heff has gone with Right Minds as the name of the latest multi-author comment-fest. See what they’ve done there?

The other name put about was “Running Commentary” which could, pre-Olympics, have been mistaken for an athletics blog. Mail Political Editor James Chapman has been given a blog on the platform. Guido would like to congratulate him on being awarded the title of “Britain’s Best Political Blog” after just two posts, which reminds him of what Simon Heffer said about the internet in 2009“while being possibly the greatest invention of my lifetime, is also a means of purveying rubbish.” Heffer’s wisdom once again standing the test of time.

Cruelly nicknamed by one hack as “the Fired From the Telegraph Club”, the Mail have certainly rounded up some big hitters for the project. It does however just seem a bit like all the comment from the Daily Mail has just been put in one place…
