Today we’re starting a new daily Crikey feature – Blogwatch – where we’ll try to find some of the more interesting stuff floating around in that great wide world of information known as the blogosphere.

Great idea, Crikey! And such an original name, too …

    1. I’d like a blogwatch, but only if it comes with a crocodile leather wristband…

    1. Maybe they could spell it differently, or do the whole 1337-speak thing:

    1. For an example of Crikey’s credibility, or more accurately its lack thereof, look no further than this headline;


      8. Who will be Barry O’Farrell’s deputy?

      D’oh!!! That’s what you call going off half cocked.

      Add that to the cockup file – that is of course if it isn’t already bursting at the seams.

  1. Well, I suppose anyone who has used the name since P.Andrews could be accused of being unoriginal.

    Can I be the first to admit that I like Crikey, well bits of it.
