Right-wing blogger Guido Fawkes told an NUJ conference today that his successful blog was based on the economic model that Karl Marx aspired to.
Fawkes, aka Paul Staines, claimed: "I have achieved the Marxist ideal. I own the means of production and distribution. I have job security, I can't be fired and do much better than many journalists."
Ever the controversialist, Guido bit back when asked why he didn't employ a sub-editor on his blog which now attracts two million
Guido was talking at the 'New Ways to Make Journalism Pay' conference, organised by the NUJ's London Freelance Branch.
