Paddy Power make David Grossman the 5/4 favourite, however Guido understands that Grossman has not even applied for the Newsnight political-editor’s job. So don’t put your money on that rider…
Next Newsnight Political Editor – Paddy Power odds: 2/1 Nicholas Watt, 5/1 Tom Newton Dunn, 6/1 Janan Ganesh, 14/1 Isabel Hardman, 14/1 Tom McTague, 16/1 Isabel Oakeshott, 16/1 Chris Ship, 16/1 Helen Lewis.
UPDATE: Janan has now ruled himself out:
There is more chance of me voting Corbyn than applying for Newsnight job. Zero interest in giving up writing or the FT. Don't watch the show
