Censored, not Edited: the scandal of London MetBlog

The London MetBlog saga grows ever more entertaining. I logged into my Bloglines account this morning, to find a post on there from Heppy decrying the abrupt sacking of OnionBagBlogger from the site for satirising the Princess of Wales memorial. I clicked through to the original article, and found it gone. Wow. For a “non-edited” blog, there’s a heavy hand of censorship at work.

Anyway, you can find the original post at Heppy’s blog, you can find OnionBagBlogger’s account of his sacking on his blog, and Inspector Sands rounds up his opinion on the whole thing here.

With all the good writers gone from the Metblogs site, I still say a good, multi-author London blog would be an excellent idea. Anyone interested?
