Spoof Site Falling By Wayside: Labourist is Not Working


Despite the slow pace today the LabourList "doppleganger" tease site Labourist is simply not keeping up. No sign of Prescott's VLog. No sign of the tease for The Standard's BoJo exhibition of fuckwittery. And no sign whatsoever of that torrent of liberated, unmoderated, no-holds-barred commentators we were promised.

It actually surprised me quite a bit that the site was not automated at all.

It really isn't that hard to write a screen-scraping script!

Given where my template mangling stalled I can't be too critical on the technical side. But I think the interaction and speakeasy promise has failed completely.
