Badly Buried Conservatism

Andy Coulson has personally headhunted Craig Oliver, a top BBC News exec and former editor of the six and ten o’clock newses, to take over as head of government communications after Coulson was hounded from office due to his having held the reins during the News of the World phone hacking scandal.

We assume that the last five years of BBC editorial independence were surely pristine, since Coulson must have selected Oliver due to his stunning broadcast news credentials, and was merely pleasantly surprised to discover at interview that he was a great big Tory. It seems very unlikely that this would have occurred the other way around.
