Can I just congratulate Paul Staines on a recent-ish appointment.
The alter ego (and what a fucking ego) of Guido Fawkes is running Messagespace…
Staines is founder of the Guido Fawkes blog Order-Order and also runs the MessageSpace network which sells ads across around 30 political blogs.
The official line is that; “Paul Staines is neither a shareholder, director or employee of MessageSpace and never has been.”
But for some reason they both had access to each others sites. It was alleged that Paul was hosting stolen images on the Messagespace site and Jag Singh of Messagespace offered to remove alleged lies and smears from order-order.com …
Read that bit again; Jag Singh offered to log into the order-order.com website and delete these comments himself!
Why would Jag do that on order-order and how would Paul be able to host stuff on messagespace if they have nothing to do with each other?
I know peoples’ circumstances change, and Paul may have joined the top team at Messagespace in the last two years, but after that, would you trust them?
So, Huffington Post or Messagespace? Would you rather be fucked in the arse or the eye?
