Yet Arianna Huffington seemed to be under the impression that the launch of HuffPo UK would be greeted as a revolutionary marvel by the British – as if she were the first person to bring fire to these isles.
I was never that fussed by the Huffington Post’s US incarnation. I checked out the UK version a few times and was even less impressed. It just looked like a lazy transfer of US culture with a token attempt at a sprinkling of UK news. Looking at today’s front page, it’s almost as if they produced it just for the purposes of backing me up.
Seriously, a big splash about US Republican pre-election nonsense? On a ‘UK edition’? Really?!
