A new newspaper aimed at the 48pc of voters who voted to stay in the European Union has hit the streets today.
Publisher Archant said the title has been delivered to market faster than any other British newspaper in history – just nine days from concept to newsagent.
Priced £2, the paper will initially run for four issues, with subsequent print runs being decided by reader interest.
Matt said in a Tweet last night: “Ok, here it is. The New European. hot off the press and on sale tomorrow. it’s bold and different and vey European.”
A web page promoting the new title has also gone live.
It says: “The New European is not aligned with old political divisions but with an enthusiasm and love for Europe; a new quality newspaper that gives voice to the values of the 48%.
“The New European will provide in-depth analysis of the Brexit process, its implications and progress as well as a celebration of European life and culture with contributions from some of the most respected journalists and opinion formers from the UK and Europe.
“We will celebrate both the highbrow and the fun with exciting features and news on cultural, fashion and artistic events across the UK and the continent and inspiring articles on how to get out there and enjoy them.
“The New European – a cosmopolitan, optimistic, intelligent and expansive collection of news, analysis, voices, sport, culture, business, travel and the arts – celebrates the best of Europe.”
He said that while the 52pc who voted Leave had been well represented by the national press, there was no “visible articulation” of the 48pc who had voted the other way.
