Number crunchers

OK, let's get the next book started...BBC Economics Editor. The vacancy may once again tempt Director of News, James Harding to bring in another of Fleet Street's finest. How about Sam Fleming, who he hired at The Times in 2010, now with the FT in the States ? Or a bigger fish, Gillian Tett, also of the FT, and beloved Newsnight panellist ?

Longer odds, I'd guess, on Sky's Ed Conway bringing his DJ mixes to Broadcasting House, or indeed, Sky's City Editor Mark Kleinman, whose every tweet seems to be an exclusive.

Insiders I'd like to see given a run: Simon Jack, from Today, and the indefatigable Mickey Clarke, of 5Live's Wake Up To Money. Plain speakers, both.
