Murdoch’s Musical Chairs
Trevor Kavanagh, the Sun’s political editor has given way to George Pascoe-Watson, who at 39 is the same age as Dave Cameron. So that’s the end of an era, but it was signalled well ahead and completely expected. GP-W’s girlfriend is satellite dish, Kay Burley, the redheaded Sky News presenter.

In a telling sign that Murdoch is shifting his support, Jonathan Collett, ex-spinner for Michael Howard, is to take over handling political relations for News International, replacing Alison Clark – who was plugged into New Labour. A connection which is becoming less and less valuable.

UPDATE: Irwin Stelzer does the bad cop half of Murdoch’s good-cop, bad-cop routine. Putting the boot in to any lefty nonsense from Cameron in The Sun. No. 10 will no doubt invite him round again..
