Ed’s Weblog

…now my real blog

Comment is Free

Posted by Ed on April 5, 2006

The Guardian, long my favourite British daily, just got even better. They’ve expanded their comment and analysis section with the addition of a new blog, Comment is Free.

It is a collective group blog, bringing together regular columnists from the Guardian and Observer newspapers with other writers and commentators representing a wide range of experience and interests. The aim is to host an open-ended space for debate, dispute, argument and agreement and to invite users to comment on everything they read.

The articles seem to be generating quite a lot of comment so far, much of ot interesting and insightful. Of course, there are times when it degenerates into a slanging match (particularly where Israel/Palestine is concerned), but that’s to be expected. The opinions are diverse (with I think more than 100 contributors) and the writing is sharp and provocative and well worth a read.

Not only that, it also features a photoblog by Dan Chung and Steve Bell’s If.
