UKNN Website

The new blog format is essentially finished and we will carry on posting news links on a daily basis.

We do however want to go much further and a blog simply cannot achieve what we want to do. We want to create a new UK online daily ‘newspaper’ and we will purposely design it so it has a similar format and look to some of the other UK newspapers, perhaps a cross between the Telegraph and the Guardian. We want it to look professional and polished.

We want to not only link to other news sites but eventually create our own news as we believe there must be many ‘would be’ journalists and writers seeking a platform- all we have to do is find them.

Our chief aim will be, while providing news and informing people, is without a doubt, getting more people into the ‘Libertarian’ blogosphere but to do that we are going to have to be ‘crafty’ . Hence the need for a balanced, ‘not in your face’, MSM type news site.

We will work out how to give exposure to the blogs without it being overt or obvious and once we have set it up we’ll link the site here so that everyone can see it and comment on it till we get it right. Once we have done that we will advertise it as a new and truly independent UK online newspaper not tied to any group or organisation, where you’ll get all the important news on a daily basis.

On the subject of being crafty does anyone out there plan on subscribing to the Times when it starts charging in June? If you are do us a favour and copy the best articles and email them to us and we’ll research the source material ourselves, quoting sources, and then publish our own news piece on the site.

If anyone wants to get involved in anyway please email and of course any donations, however small, will help us set up the site and hopefully create a fund for advertised links on other sites. We want to stress again that this project is voluntary and not for profit and we will publish regular account details so that anyone who donates can see what we are doing.

This all might seem a bit ambitious but there’s an old Scottish saying:

“Aim for the stars and you’ll hit higher than a haystack”

And we think now’s the time to start doing a bit of aiming.

Best Wishes
