Final Curtain for Draper

Curtains for Draper

Last night, as Dale predicted, Draper sent out an email to LabourList subscribers saying that he was stepping down as editor.  No indication as to what has happened to Tom Miller, who aided and abetted Derek in his smear operations.  The new editor, Alex Smith, seems to have decent intentions.  Guido still has some reservations.  Who pays Alex’s wages?  Who funds Tangent Labs development of the rather clunky and overly expensive bespoke software and hosting on which the site runs?   Is Derek still the proprietor?

ConservativeHome and LibDemVoice are much more transparent about funding.  Some clarity from LabourList on this might be a good idea going forward.  Guido genuinely wishes Alex well with the new direction of the site.
