Guido Fawkes: labour broker

Guido has noted that there are a few problems over at The Grauniad and strikes may well follow.
Guido hears that the lowly paid hacks at Guardian Online have received letters outlining what their individual salary will be if the pay offer is accepted. The NUJ says: "It is highly regrettable that management decided to bypass the chapel and send individual letters offering cash which until now has not been forthcoming during the pay round. We have not seen a copy of the letter and cannot comment on its contents."

This is all very sad hilarious; might the ignorant student's rag of choice not appear online for a few days? No, for Guido has a solution!
Guido has offered to round up a crack team of bloggers for Georgina Henry to scab in the event of a strike. Successful bloggers like Tim Worstall, Devil's Kitchen, Dizzy, who knows maybe some of the boys at Samizdata might help if Georgina asks nicely. These are all proven writers who would bring a different perspective and a high traffic following.

Different perspective? You ain't wrong there, sunshine! Just think how many paeons of praise I have to Polly in my archives: enough for a week's worth of Grauniads, I should think...

I am sure the thought fills Polly with almost as much joy as Mr Browns cock.

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
