txtriffidranch and I were chatting somewhere else about editors and their funny little ways, and this story about former News Of The World editor Andy Coulson seemed apposite. I remember Coulson when he was a humble showbusiness editor (and now I think about it Piers Morgan, who later became editor of the Mirror was also a showbusiness editor - what is it about those guys?) but he's now Director of Communications at the Conservative Party.

Shouldn't you rush out and get a job as a showbusiness editor?

The Mirror's not a Murdoch tabloid, is it?

It's not, no, but Morgan was a showbiz editor for the Sun and the NoW is a Murdoch paper. Truth be told, I couldn't edit a national paper no matter who owned it. That way madness lies.

Madness, yes . . . but moolah, too.

I need the moolah, but wild horses wouldn't drag me to work at News International. Or at the Express, which seems from the outside to be a pit of insanity. I might hack it at the Sindy (oh, I wish) but I couldn't cope with the pressure at a daily.
