Julian Glover leaves the Guardian

Julian Glover wrote his last column for the Guardian today before starting work as a speechwriter for David Cameron.

I am sorry to see him go. This is not just because he was the first person to commission me to write for the paper's website. It is also because in the last year he has been one of the few Liberal voices on the newspaper, which is rapidly degenerating into a sort of horror comic for people who work in the public sector.

As he put it today:
I believe that basic values of individuality, opportunity and freedom - which to me matter more than mathematical equality - are liberal in the fullest sense of that word.
