TIMES-UP

Apparently Harding went at the request of News Corp and will stay at News International in a different role. Peston says John Witherow is coming over from the Sunday Times – no news yet on his replacement if so, but the Guardian say otherwise:

Developing…

    Press release

    We have to change all our top managers and editors very reguarly in case plod catches up with them. You have also noticed that no members of the Murdoch family have any executive positions in News International, for good reason.

    End of press release

    Now if we can just get that basic realisation into the thick heads of Cameron, Osborne and co then maybe, just maybe, we can see both the Conservative party and the Country start to rebuild and recover.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
