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…
