All My Little Words

The Eveningski Standardski

Posted in Uncategorized by nickchristian on January 18, 2009

Much of the aeaction to the imminent purchase of The Evening Standard by former KGB agent Alexander Lebedev seems to have been not-so-subtely tinged with xenophobic sentiment.

For me the idea that a foreigner should own a major British newspaper and run it to serve their own personal agenda is of no less concern that someone running one for purposes of profit.

I highly doubt Lebedev will use the paper as a mouthpiece of anti-Putin sentiment, but even if he did, would that really be so much worse than the current modus operandi? The Standard is a rag with vile editorial positions, catering to an up-their-own-arse, out-of-touch, London elite. In its current form, it won’t be missed.
