Sunday Times Pol Ed Runners and Riders

Plenty of names in the hat for the soon-to-be-vacated Political Editor position at the Sunday Times. A top three Lobby job is up for grabs, as usual Guido gives you the runners and riders. A betting man would have a flutter on Tim Shipman from the Mail, the Spectator’s Pol Ed James Forsyth has Sunday experience from his Mail on Sunday column, Rob Winnett is said to be upset about being recalled back to Telegraph Towers, so could well put his hat in the ring. Sam Coates of The Times gets stories. Guido would not rule out Nick Watt either, for an outside bet, why not Brendan Carlin? Maybe Gaby Hinsliff – who seems busier than ever – might want a break from the kids…

Guido asked one Lobby hack what he thought, only to be told it was the “Worst job in Westminster. Everyone who does it leaves journalism afterwards. I seriously have no idea who would want it. I certainly don’t. I still want to be a journalist in 10 years.” It’s an exhausting job…

      Only if he wears that ridiculous cravat, stupid brass bangle, shiny pointy Chelsea boots and a shirt with bright buttons and an annoying floppy quif.

    Can’t they just make shit up and attribute it to un-named sources? Can’t be THAT tiring.

    Hanging is too good for them.
    What they need is a tenure as editor of The Times.
    Seems harsh but may discourage others.
    Tough on journalism and the causes of journalism.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
