Exclusive: The new 18 Doughty Street

Interesting job advert over on Work for an MP. Launching in Februrary apparently, a "definitive portal to the ongoing political debate, edited by some of the UK's leading political journalists and pollsters." It's name? PoliticsHome... original huh?

The domain (politicshome.com) is registered to Stephan Shakespeare, so clearly another offshoot from the ConservativeHome brand. Seriously though.... can we please please make this the last bloody "XXXXhome" website? It worked once, it's maybe even worked twice with LabourHome, but now it's just looks like a lack of creativity, don't you think?

Nice logo.

Has to be one of the longest and slowest 'startups' in history. Besides, isn't it the government that usually changes the name of failing projects, such as the NHS supercomputer? Must be catching... Would you not agree, dearest Dizzy?

Wow, Tory leaning Stephan Shakespeare sets up yet another Tory leaning website.

XXXhome surely for porn and therefore not objectionable for chaps?

I am truly and totally shocked that you would come in here Trixy and make an innuendo out of something perfectly innocent! It's outrageous I say, OUTRAGEOUS!

BollocksHome more like it. No, not the porn: the POLITICS.

How's about:

TroughFeedersHome. Oh, no, prob better for a website about EU politics.

Phaidon (art publishers) will have something to say about that logo. They think they have rights to the Greek letter Φ, and are highly litigious.

They could have copied egg.com and took something slightly disconnected, perhaps tripe.com
