Fraser Nelson is New Editor of the Speccie

nelsonIn what is a bit of surprise (in that it didn’t leak) the Speccie will have a new editor starting next week.  36 year-old Fraser is taking over on Monday.  He is no Cameroon and will push for sound economic policies from the next government.

Matthew leaves the Speccie in fine fettle, it has a circulation at an all time high of 75,000 and the website sometimes has even more traffic than this blog.  In June Guido reported a rumour that “Matthew d’Ancona is thinking of moving on from the Speccie”…

UPDATE : “After more than three and a half delightful and rewarding years as Editor, exciting opportunities are arising and I have decided to move on…” No news yet as to where d’Ancona is going next, but he confirms he will still be writing his Telegraph columns.  Which suggests Dacre’s job is safe…

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
