Wise words from The Last Ditch

Commenting on the reaction to plans for an anti-debt rally, Tom Paine makes an excellent suggestion:
"My first public spending cut (and it wouldn't hurt a single vulnerable person - Polly Toynbee is financially-independent and can blog her nonsense just as easily as publish it on dead trees) would be to deny The Guardian its advertising revenue by offering all government jobs online."
Who could argue with that - other than the Graun itself? I'd love to see them do so. No doubt they'd bleat about the sanctity of a 'free press', oblivious to the howling contradiction between a government-subsidised newspaper and press freedom.
