The Huffington Post UK went live this morning, and it includes the same mix of items as the version here. The site is edited by AOL Europe Editor-in-Chief Carla Buzasi, and the News Editor is Jacqui Head, formerly with Al-Jazeera. In addition to the original content that those two will be spearheading, HuffPo UK already has plenty of celebrity bloggers, including Jeremy Hunt, Tony Blair and Ricky Gervais.
Arianna Huffington has a “welcome” post up today as well, where she explains that HuffPo UK will be “spotlighting and linking to such great stories, driving traffic to them, and fueling conversations around the issues they raise.”
That’s all well and good, but we suggest starting with Gervais, who discusses the 10th anniversary of his show The Office, and closes with this: “Now buy the f*cking anniversary DVD Box set.”
