The London Paper’s gone! Now where will we see pictures of Peaches Geldof stepping out to Bungalow 8 in new shoes?

Gone. But not forgotten.

Oh, the London Lite.

But no, it’s a tradge. The better of London’s two freebie evening newspapers is to be no more. Gone. Dust. Ether.

It’s been a fearsome battle between Rupert Murdoch’s News International and The Daily Cunt’s Associated Newspapers for that obviously-not-so-lucrative free evening market and it seems the best man has not won. Though we don’t have much time for the anti-royal, anti-European, anti-democratic old Aussie arsehole who owns/owned The London Paper, we did love the design and found the celebrity heavy/news lite combo much more palatable than the celebrity heavy/news absolutely missing rancid London Lite.

Our prediction is now that The London Lite will revel in it for a bit then close so that sister paper The Evening Standard – this one not free – can have all its old readers (and their money) back. Could it be a return to quality? Don’t get your hopes up. For a start ES needs to get over the idea that everyone in London is either a Russian billionaire or a society hostess. Or indeed Peaches Geldof.

  1. The London Lite was by far and away better than The London Paper, despite them being exactly the same and me never bothering to read either of them. I’m personally counting down the seconds till the launch of ShortList’s little sister, Stylist.

  2. Don’t forget about ES Magazine which adds “pallid over-styled spawn of aging rock star” to the existing demographic of Russian billionaires.

  3. The London Lite is crap. Is it made by the Daily Mail? At least thelondonpaper has *some* standards. I’ll miss it. Preferred to the Lite & Metro.

  4. No ‘Gay about town’ in the LITE. Ok, so maybe it wasn’t the best column ever, but at least they acknowledged we exist.

  6. ‘Gay About Town’ was quite probably the worst column in history. Apart from that ridick Little White Boy or Stupid Cliched Gay or Self-Loathing Homo column thing they had for a while.

  7. Can I just, for a moment, take credit for Stylist. I recall having a conversation with somebody ‘in magazines’ about, ooh, three years ago in which I said the following:
    ‘Why isn’t there a free Grazia? I could do it in my lunch hour.’
    I thank you.

  9. The London Paper had this coming getleladies, I’m telling you. A year back, some cutie sent in a love struck message after giving me the glad eye on the number 1 bus, saying I had , and I quote ‘nice bum’ and did I fancy a drink. I emailed the cunts to tell them the love story of the year was about to blossom, and to hook me up,immediately if not sooner with this hot dish from the numero uno and I got nish. nada. zilch. Ooh, it’s true what Elvira said, revenge IS better than Christmas.
