Transfer talk

Sunday Times Political Editor Tim Shipman muses on the next Director of Communications at Number 10. Since Lee Cain chickened out in November, the role has been filled by James Slack, a former long-serving Mail hack who was first brought into Downing Street in 2017. He's just been lured back to Fleet St after just a matter of months, to take on the role of deputy to Victoria Newton at The Sun. 

Mr Shipman says the early favourite is Sarah Sands, long-standing Boris cheerleader. He quotes an unnamed Tory “Nothing would signal a change of direction more than moving in a few months from banning ministers from the Today programme to hiring the former editor." 

A unnamed blogger thinks "Nothing would explain more clearly why James Harding was wrong to bring in Sarah Sands to Today".
