With the departure of The Point’s last expatriate editor, buying the paper is now rather … pointless. Boom boom.

Well not quite.

It makes for a very entertaining read and I recommend that if one ever stumbles across an edition, buy it. Great stuff.

We had subscribed to it and were receiving it daily for nearly a year, but it had become a sad little joke. I couldn't get through the first paragraph of most stories. We canceled it a month ago. The delivery agent we deal with, told us "everyone" has canceled.

But tell us Piss, have they fired all the foreign elements? Or each just quit due to lack of pay and they're just not interested in finding more?
Or is it a case of nobody being able to see the need because they're own inability to understand English precludes them from being able to see mistakes?

I thought it had a new lease on life, with their GRAND LAUNCH and new investor...

Yes. Whoops.

The latest situation is pretty much more of the same old shit. Sure we have all been there.

Constant lies, promises of contracts, visas, being paid etc. All bollox of course. One can only take so much. Even less if alcohol is involved.

No one got fired, just walked. Surprised they stuck it out for so long. Not even any nice crumpet in the office. In fact, from what I understand, no-one in the office.

"Take the risk, grab the gain" is the paper's motto. Snigger.

Paris Hilton? Yep, she's there. City desk editor or something, but only for the duration of filming a new episode of 'The Really Simple Life'.

1. You're on your own.

2. And how! I haven't speared the bearded clam since I was inadvertantly castrated at Pesta Sunat 1996.

Lovely lady. However I always seem to be grabbing my pods when she's around and being combative... some primal instinct of preservation I don't know. I don't want to have to sew 'em back on...
