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

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
