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…
