Brutal Telegraph Exodus Continues
Kamal Ahmed Replaces Peston

Last week it was the US correspondent, yesterday the editor and now a BBC poaching:

Will the last hack to leave the Telegraph, please turn out the lights…


  1. 1
    A light switch says:

    Don’t bring me into this

  2. 2
    Peston lost me my bank shares says:

    Bye, sensationalist journo of the year, 2008.

  3. 3
    The Roma are coming says:

    Paxo explained the internet to Newsnight viewers last night:

    “as we all know one of the main roles of the internet is to facilitate masturbation”.

    Time for you to go beardie man. You seem to have been odd-ish since interviewing Tosser Russ`ell Bra`nd.

    Nemesis says:

    I’m surprised the BBC didn’t replace him with Anjem Choudary seeing as they love allowing muslim haters of Britain to air there poisonous views.

  5. 6
    Man in the Street says:

    No mention of WHY this is happening?
    This would be the REAL news.

    postal votes for bennies says:

    The serious case review was announced by Rochdale Council last year after nine Asian men were convicted of the systematic grooming and sexual abuse of white girls in Greater Manchester. The findings of the review have resulted in an acknowledgement by Greater Manchester police [GMP] that the force has let down a number of vulnerable girls who were groomed by gangs for sexual abuse.

    Suits us, our interests are always protected.

    Prime Minister David Cameron says:

    UK current account deficit a whopping 5.1% of GDP. Chart since 1955 :

    Vote Tory !

      Spot on! Cannot understand why Guido has switched off comments about this hideous murder carried out by two muslim haters of Britain. I reflect on Britain today and thank goodness I’m not young anymore. The future for this country is appalling.

      I’m assuming that until they’ve been sentenced it’s still an open case and their lawyers will be looking to appeal. If only they had Matthew Perry ‘drugs courts’ they could have tried that?

        Big Jammo Boy says:

        yeh mon! we can do justice jerk style, give the man the court to do.

          Will says:

          I posted on the guardian yesterday that they should turn the comments off as they could be libellious but my comment was deleted.

          I think the guardian just wanted to post clickbait articles on the subject.

          But as the individuals have not been sentenced their could be room for appeal on this basis on facts that are not known to the general public.

          • Nemesis says:

            It doesn’t matter whether or not they have been sentenced or whether they might appeal. Free speech, without any chance of sub-judice prosecution, is allowed once the verdict has been announced – hence all the news about the case in the media. It’s just Guido using his own censorship which he so detests when others use it – hypocrisy comes to mind.

    I wonder if the Balls household will be having home grown turkey for Christmas this year.

    Sir William Wayde says:

    Pesto takes up a challenging new role as a teacher of elocution.

    Not the Ahmed is any great shakes, with his many ums and ahs.

    Has pretty Polly upset the Italian mob in Tuscany ?

    Glyn H says:

    Ye Gods! Ahmed only got the job because he was supposedly a mate of ‘thirsty’ Will Lewis (if I recall the Eye story correctly. The Peston appointment has been a poor choice due to his lousy diction and laughable pomposity (I this, I have been told that; due to his position not his person – and his father was one of those twats who made arses of themselves writing to The Times in1981. So they replace a duff LSE/common purpose type with an under qualified token ethnic. Doubtless well overpaid as well.

    How about appointing for competency BBC;a lost cause – last one of those was Charles Wheeler!!

    Shooty* says:

    I don’t get it. I thought the Telegraph was meant to be sensibly right wing. How come all those leaving are going to lefty institutions?

  15. 34
    Sue Doughty says:

    The Telegraph was getting a bit turgid and in need of fresh blood. I gave up on this guy’s pieces ages ago

    I see the muslim moderators are at work.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
