Sarah Sands is the New Standard Editor

Sources over in Kensington say that it will be announced tomorrow that the current acting editor of the Evening Standard Sarah Sands has got the job full time. Apparently she was on the verge of walking having been told she was out of the race a matter of weeks ago, but a heavy lobbying operation by Boris swung it for her. Поздравляю!

UPDATE: Guido understands that Sands had formally resigned and accepted the offer to go as Deputy to the Mail on Sunday with Geordie Greig, before things turned around.

        She trashed the Sunday Telegraph – down over 10 percent – with her lightweight ‘champagne for the brain’ re-design.

        The ES will become even more of a air-head celeb rag than it already is…

          Agreed.

          Sands is a sort of name dropping dinner party journalist. if you care what Pippa said to Sophie about London Fashion Week, then the Evening Standard will serve you well.

    I don’t know what conclusion we are supposed to draw from this.

    But what pressure is it that Boris exerts on the newspaper so that the right candidate gets the job?

    If Ms Sands cannot take helm at the Standard without the lefties having a go; what about having a dig at the Liebour Party’s Media circus (aka the BBC) and that clown Sugar – A businessman? What does he make apart from a STB for he Italian market and a useless Emailer? I think that Lord Reith must be spinning in his grave.

    ES will now be madly pro-Boris but less consistently pro-Tory than under Victoria Wadley., I guess.

Dominic Cummings blasts Sir Jeremy:

“Heywood is more important than anyone in the cabinet, apart from Cameron and Osborne, and arguably more important than Osborne. He sits right next to the prime minister. He has him completely by the balls and Cameron does not do anything without Heywood’s permission.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
