Interesting. Especially as GPW was fronting Murdoich's silly backing for the CamCon.

Of course Bill Newton Dunn was a Tory MEP until 10 years ago, so the chances of his son's allegiances defecting with his father at the same time is unlikely.

Being political editor of a popular daily is a highly-skilled job. No doubt political orientation played a part in the appointment, but ability to write well must have been the main criterion.

The Sun, as in the conservative, celebrity gossip, homophobic, misogynist, tits-on-page 3 rag which supports the war and tells people to vote for right-wing idiots? Interesting...
