Alistair Osborne Going to Times

 The exodus from Telegraph continues under the new Psycho-Seiken editor-in-chief. Alistair Osborne is going to The Times as Business Commentator – so that’s Kamal Ahmed, Richard Fletcher and him all gone in a few weeks. Guido also hears that the glass walls of the offices of senior editorial staff are coming down and they now have to sit exposed to the rest of the newsroom…

    Anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

    It'll work out for the better. says:

    Actually this new broom should be good for the Telegraph.

    It has been going downhill for quite a few years now and needs a bloody good shake up. It’s was even pro New Labour at one stage.

    Politicians bribe you with borrowed money says:

    Agreed, it’s Guardian lite at the moment, only a matter of time before the BBC buy a few thousand every day.

  6. 6
    Gay laws says:

    Homosexual marriage was Dave’s Iraq. Musical chairs and partitions elsewhere are just irrelevant. Perhaps non consummation requirements would have made it more palatable.

    The DT is fast becoming something like Guardian-Lite.

    I will not be renewing my subscription.

    Well fuck you.

    The descent to the left continues, were the Bros Barclay in receipt of a couple of Harriet’s homunculi?

    Wake up call around. Innit?

    Mehdi Hasan says:

    I’m thinking of cancelling my Sun+ subscription fee of £8.67 a month and switching to the Huff Po.

    Alistair Osborne Going to Times – gazes out of window – yawns.

    Looks like it has stopped raining

    Bemused says:

    Read it on Tuesday this week and it was absolutely awful. Clearly isn’t getting any better.

    Team AGW Propagandist says:

    Floods to remain until May!

    Wake up & vote UKIP says:

    Then drought – there goes that crazy climate change.

    Tin foil top hat says:

    You noticed that too?

    Gazza says:

    Excellent, and the paper has lost its very best blogger in the shape of James Delingpole!
    In the interests of freedom of speech, this is the newspaper that pretty much refuses to accept comments on any subject to do with race and Islam.
    A once great right-leaning paper going down the Suwannee with the likes of Geoffrey Lean left on board churning out Roger Harrabin-type eco-garbage.

    Jimmy says:

    But they’re still going to keep Booker in the cellar yes?

    The Cuckold's Lackey says:

    But it’s only £1 a month, honest!

    hbasher says:

    At the same time could we have clear out of staunch papists. The place is overflowing with them. The number of former editors of the Catholic Herald who routinely write in the paper is just ridiculous.

  23. 23
    chris says:

    Absolutely. The WUWT site gives the real reasons for Delingpole’s departure.

    So, as you say, it’s left with the likes of Lean and Riddell – the West’s answer to North Korean shrills.

    Thanks, but no thanks…..

    Jeremiah says:

    “Guido also hears that the glass walls of the offices of senior editorial staff are coming down and they now have to sit exposed to the rest of the newsroom…” does that mean the rest of the newsroom will be able to see them playing Flappy Birds?

    Jeremiah says:

    I don’t buy the rag, I get my toilet paper from the supermarket

  26. 26
    Jeremiah says:

    Three weeks of warm sunshine and the cry will go up drought

  27. 27
    Jeremiah says:

    The way it is going I guess she might get off all the rest of the counts against her Jimmy, Big Marj in the women’s prison is going to be disappointed

    suet says:

    My suggestion that the Brothers Blofeld were making a pigs ear of the DT and they should persuade Conrad Black to return was quickly deleted: they got no sensayuma neither.

    George Darling says:

    Every time someone stops believing in the Telegraph another journo leaves.

  30. 30
    marcusjuniusbrutus says:

    Delingpole is now executive editor of Breitbart London.


    I might cancel my Telegraph subscription – its definitely feeling like a place for the metropolitan elite to tell us what they have decided our opinions should be.
