New Sunday Times Pol Ed is Revealed
I'm not sure if this has appeared anywhere else or not, so apologies if I am behind the times, but the new political editor of the Sunday Times, succeeding David Cracknell, is none other than Jonathan Oliver, who up till now has been Simon Walters' deputy on the Mail on Sunday. Jonathan is a story getter of the first order. He was the one who broke the Labour donations scandal. He also incurred the wrath of his lobby colleagues when he stood up at a press conference with Tony Blair the day after the death of David Kelly and asked: "Prime Minister, do you have blood on your hands?" His more sensitive colleagues thought he had gone too far.
