We’ve all heard that before.
But on the day The News of the World ceases to be, Ricardo Blanco’s blog ushers in a new dawn. Don’t you like the symmetry of that? A post-NOTW world sees the blossoming of a new source of worthless information and one in which scurrilousness, scandal-mongering and salacious gossip will have no place. In which nothing, but absolutely nothing, is any different from the way it was before. Except that there will be fewer exclamation marks in the universe. And we will smell the aroma of the earth after fresh rain once more.
