    Default I think I might do this

    I was thinking of making a news site like 'The Onion' but for a British readership. Would any of you lot be interested in fabricating stories, making libelous comments and getting away with it, misleading the public, etc., all in the name of satire?



    While you're at it, anything you'd like to see done with this site? I'm going to create some far more controvercial and cool graphics at some point, but not for at least a month, as I'm off to Africa for three weeks come Monday. So you have plenty of time to think.

    I think you need to be up to speed on the news to be satirical about it.

    Isn't it enough to just know that you hate Thatcher and want to see the back of her?

    Tell you what I'll do. If you're prepared to use it, I'll upgrade this site to utilise the 'blog' ad-on. It's easily done, you guys have come along with a lot of enthusiasm, I'll quite happily encourage that in any way possible.
