Disembowelling of the Telegraph Continues

Guido hears that Dan Hannan has been dropped as a leader writer and will now only “be doing occasional articles”.

Even media pundit Roy Greenslade, no friend of reactionaries, is bemused at the spiritual disembowelling of the Telegraph. Craig Brown, AN Wilson and Iain Dale have all just got the chop in what the paper’s insiders are claiming is all about economics rather than editorial tone. The “business model” is changing one source tells Guido. If you lose the paper’s character and spirit, you will lose readers.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
