    Default Peter Oborne quites Daily Telegraph.

    PETER OBORNE QUITS TELEGRAPH - Guy Fawkes' blog

    The past few years have seen the rise of shadowy executives who determine what truths can and what truths can’t be conveyed across the mainstream media......
    Wouldnt bother asking for a reference Mr Oborne!

    I saw a CUK post about this earlier: http://forums.contractoruk.com/gener...ml#post2056804
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    It is posted by Scooter? Then no.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Good for him. I hope he fines gainful employment at a more honest news outlet.

    He was having a proper strop on R4 this morning. Why he thinks a commercial news paper's editorial policy should and must never be influenced by commercial pressures is beyond me.

    Did anyone actually read what he wrote?

    Last week I made another discovery. Three years ago the Telegraph investigations team—the same lot who carried out the superb MPs’ expenses investigation—received a tip off about accounts held with HSBC in Jersey. Essentially this investigation was similar to the Panorama investigation into the Swiss banking arm of HSBC. After three months research the Telegraph resolved to publish. Six articles on this subject can now be found online, between 8 and 15 November 2012, although three are not available to view.

    Thereafter no fresh reports appeared. Reporters were ordered to destroy all emails, reports and documents related to the HSBC investigation. I have now learnt, in a remarkable departure from normal practice, that at this stage lawyers for the Barclay brothers became closely involved. When I asked the Telegraph why the Barclay brothers were involved, it declined to comment.

    This was the pivotal moment. From the start of 2013 onwards stories critical of HSBC were discouraged. HSBC suspended its advertising with the Telegraph. Its account, I have been told by an extremely well informed insider, was extremely valuable. HSBC, as one former Telegraph executive told me, is “the advertiser you literally cannot afford to offend”. HSBC today refused to comment when I asked whether the bank’s decision to stop advertising with the Telegraph was connected in any way with the paper’s investigation into the Jersey accounts.
