Roy Greenslade says 'bye to Evening Standard?

Roy Greenslade rages at Lord Rothermere for "washing his hands" in Pontius Pilate style of Evening Standard staff - supposedly facing inferior redundancy payments under the new owner. I take it he won't be the Standard's media pundit for much longer, then. Anyone with a peerage want the job? Click here

I think you'll find Our Roy was tipped off he'd not be required to recycle his opinions in the Standard with Greig's arrival. The Standard Media page is a bit redundno in any case.

Your friend Duncan was in the Evening Standard today. I guess you never knew he was the Poet Laureate of Hay on Wye.

I believe Duncan shared this information with Arcatistes last year or the year before that. Where Madame treads, Londoner's Diary follows. It frequently lifts stuff without credit. I shall bring this to Mr Greig's attention at his seance.

You should read Greenslade in the Standard today, his dullest piece ever. I can't even remember what it's about. It would have been to his and the paper's credit if he'd re-run his blog piece on the Standard's redundancy terms which I think he got all wrong anyway. He really is a pompous ass. Did you know he turned down the People editorship because it wasn't grand enough for him years ago?

Arcati, I'm growing increasingly bored with the dead-tree press. Why in 2009 is the industry run by deluded white toffs. The worst offender is the Grauniad which is run by deluded white toffs but of course also employs token "ethnic" writers who are given picture bylines to prove their none-whiteness and then assigned to write embarrassing and condescending drivel about The Black Woman's View and The Moslim Perspective. I'm sick of it all Madame. And the Evening Standard is the most hideous of the bunch!
