Seeing as Kevin Maguire crowed over my failure to be selected in Bracknell, let me be rather more grown up than him (not difficult) and express my concern that his services no longer seem to be required by the New Statesman. His often incomprehensible diary column hasn't appeared since 1 October, the week of the magazine's relaunch. I don't recall seeing it in the printed edition and there are none online since that date.
It could, of course, be that he has been on holiday for the last month and that no one has noticed.
Perhaps I should suggest to Ben Duckworth, the new editor of Total Politics, that we should offer him a berth.
On second thoughts...
