Well, it’s 4.30pm on a Friday which feels as appropriate time as ever to say goodbye. The Spinoff’s live updates have come to an end, almost four years after they were first switched on.
If you missed my explainer this morning of what’s going on, here it is. In short: things are different now than they were in early 2020. There aren’t daily 1pm press conferences that the country is glued to, the election has wrapped up, and things feel a little bit “normal” for the first time since before the pandemic.
But I’m not going anywhere and there remains a place for news on The Spinoff, just in a slightly different format. We’ll have more regular live blogs and longer form reports. I can’t wait to get stuck into some of those.
So after 1,200 or so days, and literally thousands of updates (I just checked, and since we updated our website in late 2021 there have been over 6,000 live updates published on The Spinoff), it’s time for live updates to be switched off.
Keep in touch, send me all of your news tips, and see you on the other side.
