Soho's Nathan Barleys were in mourning yesterday after Ofcom chief Ed Richards abandoned his shape-shifting flagship, the "Public Service Publisher" quango.

Yet another fine example...
of bucketloads of public (our) cash being spent (wasted) producing FUCK ALL!
(No change there then.)

Quangos are soooooo Web 1.0, all the best school mates of MP's are now working in "iQuango"

I can't begin to express how much pleasure this story has given me this morning. Just how offensive PSP was (nice ring to it that 'was'!) is probably best summed up in this image, a fine example of taxpayer wonga contemptuously spent:
Richards must be the most offensive and dangerous idiot ever to collect a government salary; a living monument to the paucity of talent that the Tony n Gordon show has attracted, and a man whose solitary gift is to talk the sort of utter bollocks that puts most people in a deep and lasting coma, sours milk at 50 paces and is understood only by a species of bacteria that inhabit the entrails of chickens.

@Joe: No, you're not the only one. I think NB looks better and better with age. We've since had "Web 2.0" and the iPhone to remind us of this ilk.
For a moment there I thought Ofcom was banning Sony's PSP...

let me see now, this is the 1,352,664th reason i stopped paying tax in the UK.
