Dacre Lines Up Isabel Oakeshott for Daily Mail Pol-Ed “At Large”

ISABEL

Reliable sources tell Guido that Paul Dacre is lining up Isabel Oakeshott to be the Daily Mail’s political editor “at large”. Appointing the irrepressible Isabel is being interpreted in the Kensington newsroom as Dacre giving a two-fingered salute to Downing Street. Contracts have not yet been signed…

UPDATE: Roger Alton is also joining the Mail as an exec of some kind.
