My one mistake was opening The Post, confessed Eddy Shah

DASHED HOPES: Eddy Shah, left, and Post editor Lloyd Turner

By GEORGE DEARSLEY

FOLLOWING the Drone stories on the opening of Eddy Shah's Today newspaper, I have stumbled across this cutting on the opening of his other, later venture The Post.




























I was there and remember Rebekah Brooks was a humble secretary at the paper.


In a piece in The Guardian in 2002 Shah said: ‘My one mistake was to go on and open The Post.


‘The only reason I did it was to prove everybody wrong after Today.’


The Post ran for just five weeks in November and December 1988.


It was produced from Shah's HQ in Warrington, using Apple Macintosh computers and NewsWrite software.


The first edition (edited by ex-Daily Star editor Lloyd Turner) came out on November 10 costing 20p.


Ian St John and Jimmy Greaves - stars of ITV's Saint and Greavsie show - had a column in the paper's Saturday edition.
