Gallagher to Mail as No. 2

There is a rumour doing the rounds of Fleet Street this afternoon that former Telegraph editor Tony Gallagher is going back to the Mail as joint Deputy Editor.

Guido heard it on the grapevine….

UPDATE: Confirmed.

Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre: “It’s great news that Tony has decided to come back to his spiritual home.  He is a highly talented professional journalist who will be a welcome addition to Associated’s team of unrivalled senior executives.”
Gallagher: “I am delighted to be joining the Daily Mail.  My huge admiration for Paul Dacre is well known and I am greatly looking forward to joining his outstanding team.”

      Dan Hodges is worth reading every time – he’s funny and critical of his own – but that middle class, Champion of the Poor, Labour propagandist, Mary Liddle, does my fucking head in. Where did the Barclays find her?

        Wacko Jacko says:

        Hard to believe Hodges is the son of Glenda Jacko. I’m surprised she hasn’t killed him for half the comments he’s made.

        And don’t you mean Mary Riddell?

          Yes Riddell. I was going to check the online Telegraph but couldn’t stomach seeing her face again.

      Yeah but without the dm, what the fuck would 99% of “right on” comedians on the BBC do for work? I mean they’d actually have to try and write/learn real material.

      It’s popular unlike the grauniads – Side Moob, Illegal women in Burkas, CO2 destroys worlds, oikophobia and marxist propaganda for imbeciles.

      It’s no more one-sided in its reportage than the Grauniad. The difference is that The Mail makes a profit.

      You are dismissed.

      They also think all white africans are racist despite most putting up with severe hardship in order to provide millions of jobs for black africans.
      Shhhh don’t mention Zuma and the R240million embezzlement at Inkhandla!

          You’re not implying that a black African leader is making a sh!t load of cash illegally are you?

          Next you’re be saying that SA was well run when it had whites in the government.

          Can’t someone come up with a script that automatically recognizes boring lefty posts when they are repeated ad infinitum and junks them? So we don’t have to keep being reminded what devious little shits these artless EU lovers are.


          • Apthorpe says:

            Don’t worry the complexity of the situation is beyond them. A strong UKIP showing in May will put Labour under almost as much pressure as the Conservatives. But whereas the Conservatives can actually do something about it if the will is there. Labour are a one horse race and will come unglued once the old Tankies come out with their Anti EU/NATO rhetoric and Millband tries to find a way out.
            Vote UKIP in May and act in a strategic way that undermines the current corrupt leadership of all three main parties by making them engage in policy change just when they don’t want to.
            Did I mention it will be a bit of fun as well? It will be you’ve paid for it after all!

        If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody there, does it make a crashing sound? If there is a plop in the cubicles, and there are no attendants, will it be still be poo-pooed; if you are alone at home talking to yourself and your wife is not there, will you still be wrong?

        Read the answers to all this and more in the Mail on Sunday’s digital pull-out.

    This sort of fasc ist pamphlet need not trouble the citizens of the independent peoples republic of Scotland

    Maimed Codger says:

    Dearest Guido, seriously… who gives a dam, stop this rumour prattle and get down to some serious Investigative Journalism and consider who were the Home Secretaries in Office at the time Cyril Smith was an MP.. unless otherwise instructed from on high, no senior Police Commissioner would have taken the responsibility over the Smith cover up..

      If you consult back copies of my esteemed organ you’ll see this has been common knowledge for 40 years – except apparently among Liberal and Lib Dem leaders.

    One look into Gallagher’s distorted visage tells you immediately this is the face of a TWAT!
