Goodbye Melissa Lightwater

So the Londoners’ Diary got the scoop that was four years in the making – the Speccie’s secretly authored column, Tamzin Lightwater, the Bridget Jones of the Tory world, was penned by the Sunday Telegraph’s Melissa Kite. Entertaining readers and irritating CCHQers, her insight and titbits about life in Dave’s war-room were remarkably accurate given the amount of people, often on the inside, sending tips her way. Guido is kicking himself he didn’t make the connection before – all the clues were there – she ended up Associate Editor of the Speccie and, if her Facebook profile is anything to go by, she has more than a passing interest in horses and Tory-ness. The column is wrapping up now the Tories are “In Power” – so long Tamzin.
