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…

      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.

          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?

    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.

      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…..

      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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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.”
