C4 News Deputy Editor Is New Met Comms Chief

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that Channel 4 News deputy editor Martin Fewell will be their new Director of Communications. Fewell replaces Dick Fedorcio, who quit earlier this year after facing disciplinary proceedings for gross misconduct.

What was that about the police and the press being too close?

    OK, Guido. 1. Where do the plod find a suitable candidate outside the MSM?
    2. What’s wrong with hiring a poacher to be a gamekeeper?

    Hey, that photo you’re using? It’s mine, nicked from my blog without credit. Shall I issue an invoice?

    That’s standard Guido practice when someone nicks his work, isn’t it? ;-)

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
