Statesman editor quits

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Peter Wilby and Elinor Goodman The Statesman has reinvented itself almost to the level of rediscovering its must-read days. Clearly, Wilby has done an excellent job, and following his resignation, we can only hope that Kampfner can continue his success.

The news that Elinor Goodman is leaving Channel 4 News, which somehow I’ve forgetten to comment on, is also a big disappointment. She’s been with Channel 4 for longer than I’ve been alive, and is one of the best and most under-celebrated Political Editors I can call to mind. Hers will be big shoes to fill.
