Payne to the Pink ‘Un

The Speccie’s all-round internet wizard Seb Payne is joining the FT as digital comment editor, heading up a complete revamp of their online comment. Best known for touring the country in his Mini during the election, Payne is an Islington new media darling with an encyclopedic knowledge of UKIP, and can probably now afford to pay his mechanic.

Worth watching how his sound political views fit in at the Pink ‘Un, Payne (left), starts in January. Congratulations…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
