Yet Another Telegraph Departure: Mandrake’s Eden to Mail

More transfer news sees the Telegraph brain drain continue. Diarist Richard Eden, who has edited Mandrake in the Sunday Telegraph since 2008 and has been number two to Tim Walker on the daily, is off to be Sebastian Shakespeare’s deputy at the Mail. He starts in the New Year.

Guido is starting to lose count…

    Mandrake is a waste of space. I can’t believe somebody spends all week writing it.

    Looking at their supposedly interactive online offering, it looks like the one to be switching the lights out will be the ‘Comments Are Closed’ Editor.

    Be funny if they don’t tell Mary Riddell there’s no one there any more, as she likely would never notice.

    And don't get me started on their pile of crap website says:

    The problem for the Telegraph is their departing staff are being replaced with careless teenaged cretins. The front page today (for a change, not hidden under a giant perfume advert) had a glaring mistake which should have been spotted long before it went to press.

    I only get it because it’s free at Waitrose and a broadsheet is useful underlay for the cat’s litter tray.

      Useful for lighting the woodburner and lighting bonfires on the allotment. I get a free one from Waitrose and rarely open it. BTW Saturday’s one is the best one to get as it is fucking huge.

    For those of us who are not in the know/loop etc. Just why is there a drain at the Telegraph?

      It slowly turned to sh*t when Conrad Black sold it. If you’re good at your job, you wouldn’t want to keep working for something that’s slowly becoming a massive turd, with your colleagues f*cking up left right and centre, and having to work alongside that lefty muppet Mary Riddell who obviously wants to have Ed Miliband’s children.

      “Britain will always be ready to defend the Falkland Islands.”

      With the aircraft carrier that he scrapped and the troops he sacked?

    Wasn’t Macshame supposed to be sentenced at 3? Is the cock in court doing a last minute “I’m depressed” act like Moran?

    Dear Santa,

    I’ve been a good boy this year and for Christmas I’d like Denis Macshane to get a lengthy prison sentence and his head kicked in by his cellmate, the killers of Lee Rigby to be routinely buggered and beaten up 50 times a day, Ian Watkins and the two female fans who helped him to be skinned alive and disembowelled, and for Tony Blair to get cancer.

    Cheers.

    Nobody gives a flying feck about this, but the comments on those two murdering basrards has been disabled? Cowardice Mr. Fawkes, pure cowardice!

    The British media are cunts says:

    The Telegraph is fucking shite, they block comments that don’t fit with their pro EU, pro Muslim pro Labour stance. Attack the BBC and you get blocked.

    The only hacks left will be those ugly fat women who write those endless blogs about how terrible men are and how wonderful women are.

    They make the Guardian look like a fine read.

    The telegraph in a few short years has been transformed into the Guardian mark II
    Geoffrey Lean that ecolunatic old queen , the witterings of Mary Riddell , who is another Toynbee in the making, and earlier in the week that euro- buffoon William Hague banging on about how the Ukrainians will miss out on true democracy if they don’t ” embrace ” the EU. What a sad demise of a once great newspaper.

    Peter oborn is left wing as well. It’s as if they are trying to purge all media of anyone who isn’t a massive liberal twat.

    JOHN KEITH ROOME was directly in volved in PRINCESS OF WALES DEATH he was the one who DID IT.

    Arse says:

    Well they got rid of Heffer which was good because he was a total spastic. Riddell needs to go as does Tom Chivers – both of them are a complete waste of fucking space. The only bright spots there are Dan Hodges, AEP and Oborne, although I think Oborne is actually two writers as he changes his opinions every fucking week.

    Also, Damien Thompson. Why?

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.”

It’s money innit.
