Mandrake Joins Twenty-First Century

With the axes swinging over at the Telegraph, their new “digital first” mantra must really be hitting home as even their most old school of correspondents are taking to the internet. Tim Walker, editor of the Mandrake column, has signed up to Twitter. The somewhat aloof diarist and noted wit seems to be getting the hang of it.

    Aloof? I always thought he looked like a smarmy twat, a sort of fake public schoolboy, like the fake Spitfire pilots after the war, and passed over reading his tabloid crud about ‘celebs’.

    He’ll never ever be in the late lamented Dempsters league, only seems to have a small coterie of z-listers,and the odd politico. Not like the Mandrake of old….never to be seen again…

    …. an odd cove, all Brylcreemed and lavender water, pre-occupied doing waspish theatre reviews, then wondering why he’s dropped (as in Brick) doing serious political and press reviews.

    No time Darlings, have to be at another first night then drinkies… not trolling all the way up to BBC North either, and Osterley without a limo just not on..

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
