Hot on the heels of Mr Murdoch announcing that he is moving to paying for online content, he is closing thelondonpaper, a freebie evening newsheet.
Hooray! I hate this stupid thing, it gets shoved in your face anytime you walk anywhere in rush hour; there are a million copies on the train making a mess everywhere; the content is beyond trash with daily pictures of Kate Moss et al going to parties; on the odd page that is not that are gay dating tales and other politically correct bilge.
I can't believe any of the 'journalists' on the paper are over the age of 25. So in the end I hope this is a victory in the battle of rational sense. This is a terrible paper, London Lite, its competitor is equally as bad and I understand is in equally as much trouble not making any money.
Free sheets can be history and London will be better for it. I'll let the Metro off in the morning as being slightly better in that it contains some news between ads.
