Paddy Power have suspended betting on the Sun’s Tom Newton Dunn being the new Newsnight political editor. His opening price of 5/1 quickly shortened after a flurry of bets from “in the know” punters apparently, though one told Paddy Power “my only inside knowledge is someone said he looked more cheerful than usual last week”. Betting was suspended when the odds narrowed to 1/5 this morning…
A late runner doing the rounds is the New Statesman’s Stephen Bush. Young, up and coming – and Ian Katz loves a nerd – though he hasn’t always been on their radar:
Well, I suppose my constituency MP getting on is almost the same as being on Newsnight myself.
