Newsbiscuit at 10!

Happy tenth anniversary to NewsBiscuit – Britain’s first daily news satire website.  Unleashed upon an unsuspecting public on the 16th of September 2006.

Launched by John O’Farrell, the good ship ‘Newsbiscuit’ had the noble aims of eradicating global poverty, creating a lasting peace in the Middle East and providing a daily dose of humour to bored people at work. And in many respects we have already achieved so much more.

It also seems particularly apt that a ‘Biscuit Tin’ is the perfect gift for our 10th year.

Many thousands of funny stories later we are still going strong and we are very proud to have helped develop some great comedy talent along the way.

A huge thank you to our loyal readers and a big thank you to our team (old and new) for their continued submissions and futile demands for cash.

And if any budding writers would like to join our writing staff, please feel free to sign up to our ‘Writer’s Room’.  All biscuit tins are gratefully received.
