Boris signs Gilligan to The Spectator

News reaches us this morning that Boris has signed up controversial, Hutton-tarnished journalist Andrew Gilligan as his Defence and Diplomatic Editor [story link: The Guardian]. Says Boris, “”He got a very good story which was correct in all central respects and he has been pilloried and vilified by journalists who aren’t fit to lick his boots in terms of getting stories”. A brave move, considering Gilligan’s many political enemies, but well done to Boris for sticking to his beliefs!
