Diary Change

On the Indy’s Pandora column Olly Duff is moving to the news desk. So he clearly didn’t disgrace himself too much in the eyes of Roger Alton at the leaving moving party for Simon Kelner. The gossip column will be left in the hands of Henry Deedes. Floreat Etona!

Over at The Times Hugo Rifkind is moving to features and apparently there may be no successor gossip column in the newspaper (although there seems to be one today, by-lined Adam Sherwin with a familiar story about Nadine employing her daughter). The editor obviously aims to boost sales by making the paper even less entertaining.

Katy-Taylor Richards is no longer a gossip columnist and is now a serious lobby journalist she tells Guido. Which is very confusing, because she writes for the Daily Express.

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
