Statesman editor quits

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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.
