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…

      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.

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

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

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

      “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?

    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.

      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.
      Shame.

        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…..

    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.

    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.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
