A Gem of An Editor for the Speccie?

Andrew Neil’s hunt for Boris Johnson’s successor proceeds. Topaz Amoore, who apparently “personifies the Sunday Telegraph slogan of brains and beauty”, is the only woman in the running.

Guido enjoyed the Johnson era at the Speccie, it was a lot of fun. If the rumours that Neil wants to sell off the Speccie’s townhouse building and move them in to the corporate HQ are true, it is a shame. The alcohol fuelled atmosphere at the Speccie helps give the magazine its effervescence. Something tells Guido that close proximity to the Barclay boy will ruin it.

Quote of the Day

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
