Come over to the light side...we miss you!
*blushes some more*
I hope there'll be some stuff of interest to you Yanks — we'll still be doing the usual mix of interesting Giz stuff, but with more UK news thrown in, is all :)
Unfortunately we couldn't use the same commenting system as Gawker Media, but if anyone wants the same commenting username, they can sign up with it. If someone's stolen their name and is impersonating them, then we can boot them off if need be.
Thanks Victorioso! :)
I've got a steaming mug of builders' tea right here with your name on it.

I think a lot of people are feeling betrayed by the UK government — especially because of its "hung government" stature. As for the media, depends what publication obviously, but I think the News Corp / phone hacking scandal has made a lot of people suspicious, if they weren't already...
It's up to you, which site you read, but we're only going to be taking *the best* and *the most relevant* posts from the US feed, so you won't miss anything much, I promise you.
