    The Indy is notorious for having sacked most of its journalists, which means that it now has to gets its 'news' from the wire services (Reuters, AP, etc) or steal it from the Web. Which is where ARRSE comes in. We are 'authentic', 'genuine', up-to-the-minute, and of course, absolutely free. The Indy - avoid at all costs.

    We also got a mention here in a Guardian blogger's report:
