Shining Stars of The Morning Star

Jeremy Corbyn’s favourite newspaper the Morning Star hit a new low this morning with a front page welcoming Aleppo’s ‘final liberation’ at the hands of bombs and death squads. Who are the Assad-loving commies behind the paper? Follow MediaGuido into the Morning Star’s newsroom, which features “a dozen state-of-the-art iMacs, Palestinian flag and a pinup front-page from the paper commemorating the late trade union leader Bob Crow.”

Ben Chacko – Editor

Only 32. Studied at St John’s College, Oxford. Dad was an actuary, mother was a software engineer. Brother is a prominent tax barrister. Spent time in China – presumably picking up a few political ideas. Girly-haired posho.

Lamiat Sabin – Parliamentary News Reporter and Deputy News Editor

Oddly for a commie used to work on the Express online desk where she wrote pieces like: “Revolutionary vest ‘helps slim and tone’ bodies in time for summer.” Now cheer-leading for a different revolution. Went to school at the posh Holland Park, known as the “socialist Eton” where Tony Benn sent his kids.

John Haylett – Political Editor

Former editor of the paper resurrected as pol ed. Once wrote: “Every Morning Star staff member is told bluntly at interview: “The wages are crap. We work at the paper because we are politically committed to its aims.” Honest commie boss.

Conrad Landin – Industrial Reporter

Studied at Christ’s College, Cambridge where he learned his radicalism: he was once fined for disrupting a speech by David Willetts and suspended from the university’s debating society. Now spends his time defending Castro on Twitter. Brother Axel worked for Tower Hamlets wrong ‘un Lutfur Rahman. Remembered by one classmate as a “complete loser”. Privileged bore.

The useful idiots pontificating in support of Russia’s foreign policy are a team of posho commies barely out of university… About their level.

Quote of the Day

Modest advice to George Osborne from Piers Morgan on editing…

“Great columnists can make or break a paper, so hire some great ones. That means instantly firing dreary Nick Clegg, whose Standard columns are as inspiring as his broken tuition fee pledges, and hiring someone like me. Unfortunately, you can’t afford me. So go cheaper – Clarkson, Coren, or even your old mate Cameron. He’s got nothing better to do.”
