Former May Adviser: She’s Alone & Friendless

Joey Jones Quits Home Office For Weber Shandwick

jj

Joey Jones has left his role spinning at the Home Office to become head of public affairs at Weber Shandwick. There was surprise that the former Sky News man didn’t follow Theresa May to Number 10, a job in which he surely would have thrived, and now he’s off to make some money in the private sector. Congratulations…

ITV POL ED

With Tom Bradby off to present the ITV News at Ten, a plum broadcasting job is in the offing. Mark Austin is said to be raging that he has been overlooked for the once promised flagship presenting gig…

A tight pool of names are being floated to replace Bradby as ITV Political Editor, including James Landale, Joey Jones, Chris Ship and Lucy Manning.

With Nick Robinson now unlikely to be making a move to the Today programme any time soon, his current deputy Lansdale is said to have itchy feet and is being talked about for the role.

Current ITV Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship wants it, and would be unlikely to stick around for long in the number 2 job if he is overlooked. That would leave a serious hole in an already stretched operation…

Sky’s Joey Jones’ name is in the frame after being pipped to the post – controversially – by Faisal Islam to the Sky News Pol Ed job and Lucy Manning is another name doing the rounds. Guido hears, however, that there is some serious bad blood at ITV in the manner in which Manning jumped over to the BBC before the election, shortly after being promoted to editor level at ITN…

It’s a hard one to call…
