FRIDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 2019

“SHARK AND CHIPS, PLEASE!” OK SO IT’S ACTUALLY DOGFISH BUT IT’S KIND OF THE SAME THING AND MAKES FOR A FAR BETTER HEADLINE GIVEN THE STORY IS IN ESSENCE JUST: “RESEARCH SHOWS THAT FISH SHOPS SOMETIMES SERVE FISH THAT ISN’T COD” - VIA THE (EVIDENTLY STRAPPED FOR NON-BREXIT NEWS) EVENING STANDARD.

AND

FOLLOWING SAM BAKER’S RECENT NEWS SHE’D BE STEPPING DOWN FROM HER EDITOR POST AT THE POOL, THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THE PLATFORM IS GOING INTO ADMINISTRATION (AFTER MANY MONTHS OF UNACCEPTABLY SLOW - EVEN NONE - PAYMENT OF INVOICES FOR WORK) IS DEEPLY, DEEPLY SAD FOR ALL INVOLVED. A TRULY GROUNDBREAKING DEMONSTRATION OF WHAT BRILLIANT JOURNALISM SHOULD REPRESENT, LOOK LIKE AND STAND FOR THAT HAS UTTERLY CHANGED THE GAME. SO MUCH PHENOMENAL WRITING TALENT LET GO. MY HEART GOES OUT EVERYONE IMPACTED - VIA THE GUARDIAN. IF YOU CAN, PLEASE DONATE TO THE GOFUNDME PAGE SET UP BY JULIA KINGSFORD TO SUPPORT THE FREELANCERS LEFT OUT OF POCKET. HERE’S TO THE #POWEROFWOMEN.

AND

GUINNESS’ LATEST AD ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO DRINK MORE TAP WATER IS SIMPLY SUPERB - VIA LINKEDIN.

AND

ON THE CONTRARY, THIS CRAP FROM ‘REVOLUT’ (NO, ME NEITHER) IS NOT ONLY POORLY JUDGED, ILL-CONCEIVED (AND POTENTIALLY COMMERCIAL SUICIDE) BUT A BLATANT SPOTIFY RIP OFF. KNOW YOUR MARKET. RESPECT YOUR CUSTOMERS. CREATE YOUR OWN FUCKING ADS. SHAMEFUL - VIA A VERY ANGRY LINKEDIN MOB.
