It was perhaps inevitable. Former No 10 communications boss Craig Oliver has signed with Kruger Cowne as agent for speaking engagements - and the Sun says he's priced at £50k a pop.
BBC World Affairs editor John Simpson was in at the start of Kruger Cowne, run by his sister-in-law. He recently hosted a Kruger Cowne breakfast event with Oliver, who, prior to Downing Street, worked for the BBC. John's view ? “He was undoubtedly the best editor I ever worked for".
Editor, perhaps, but maybe not sub-editor. Take this ungainly par from the puff for Oliver on Kruger Cowne's website.
"His knowledge and expertise range from helping deliver a successful General Election campaign to dealing with a number of difficult situations the government had to face over the years."
