Tribune: The great survivor

You have to admire the chutzpah of the good folks at Tribune. No money? Tiny circulation? Affiliated political party on the brink of collapse? Mere trifles! Under new ownership since March, Tribune now has a snazzy new look and wider editorial remit, and is set to keep on fighting the good fight. My mole tells me that last night's relaunch party at the Westminster's Churchill Dining Room was a generally upbeat affair, but I suspect that the presence of a handful of recently ejected Labour MEPs and Red Ken himself wandering about the place must've made it difficult to forget the Party's woes. As New Labour enters what must surely be its final months in power, I wish Tribune nothing but the best, and hope it can stay true to its roots and survive what will likely be a very difficult period. That said, "difficult periods" seem to be precisely what Tribune (and its amazingly dedicated staff) thrives on.
