With Laura Kuenssberg starting at Newsnight, Sky News’ Joel Hills will replace her as Business editor at ITV.

MediaGuido hears he wasn’t the only Sky business presenter to go for the job, Dharshini David misses out this time round.

Who will be next to jump ship?

    It makes no difference how many move and how many times they move, they are still a bunch of dumb downed useless tossers. All of them just try for a sensational scoop headline, are full of bullshit, and are pseudo lefties.

        Should Nick be crediting the weatherman as source about the rain, or did he go down to Somerset and witness it first hand.

        Some habits are very hard to break…

      Wait - what! says:

      Not all of them, Joel doesn’t appear to be and Dharshini was a revelation once she left the Beeb and was no longer hamstrung by a leftist agenda.
      Jeff Randall is superb and Sky will be the worse off when he leaves at the end of the year.

    Sally said to me, get stuck in. So I was banging her and she said I can’t feel you.
    So I used some fingers, and she still said,I’m too wide..use your hand.
    So I did. And my other hand. Then a foot and then, before I knew, I was sucked right inside.

    And that’s when I saw someone else in there. “Sarge? That you?”
    “Yes! I’m looking for the truck”

    I’ve watched Sky news for a number of years and in recent times the cross pollination of broadcasters principally from the BBC has, in my opinion, infected Sky with the same disease. The story lines almost mimic each other and the metropolitan liberal, luvvie elite agenda pervades virtually every item. Evenhanded, honest reporting of facts and events has been consigned to the nearest bin to be replaced with the latest ego tripper expounding his or her personal take on what should or should not be done, when and by whom.

    Crikey, just how many people has Katz employed at Newsnight and at what cost to the TV Taxpayer? All to bail out a flagship programme that is slowly sinking, just as it’s main story source, the Guardian is.

    Newsnight in recent years has always been crap, but Katz, since his arrival has taken it to a new low. It’s now a shadow of it’s former awfulness.

    BTW: I see that it didn’t take Keunssberg long to slip into Newsnight’s ‘take a pop at the Tories / Cameron’ model, last night.

          Sir William Wayde says:

          Under the last government, many urban areas (that, coincidentally, vote Labour) were awarded large increases in central government block grants. Rural and semi-rural areas (that, coincidentally, vote Conservative) had their grants cut. Now it’s the other way round.

          None of this, of course, shows any degree of integrity or competence on the partvof central government.

    What sized butt plug is he wearing in that photo?

    Having never heard of him, I looked him up and found this weird entry:

    He comes across as a thoroughly decent chap. If I had a sloane daughter, over 18, I would feel very happy if he was rogering her.

    Anyhow, I digress.

    He is one of the Sky business journos and he has an interesting look at the recession fears in a VT item on Sky News today. He makes an interesting comment about a crash in houses starting the last recession in 1990.

    Hang on, haven’t all the VIs told us that it was the other way around – unemployment rose, IRs shot up, shops closed down, etc, and only then, only then, did house prices fall!?

    Well done Joel – you could have my wife as well if I was married. How about a lemon ice cream maker and a comfy chair instead?

    Prime Minister"Money's no object" Cameron says:

    Fracking – you’re going to hear a lot more about it in the months to come. The simple fact is, all three of the main political parties have given it their support. That means it’s an issue that’s probably not just going to affect us, but the lives of our children as well.

    And let’s not forget… it could also be a great opportunity for investors. After all, we’re talking about something that could replace conventional oil as our number one energy source.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
