Louise Mensch The Sun column

Quitting Tory MP turned Murdoch shill Louise Mensch at least has one exclusive in her Sun on Sunday column this weekend — that it will be her last last:

“I’m delighted to have a major new role at work, which means this will be my last Sun on Sunday column — though I look forward to writing up a storm for the US election.”

A major new role with whom — Uncle Rupert?

While foghorn Mensch was uncharacteristicly quiet about developments on Twitter, she @-replied one query by claiming that she had been “promoted”. This would seem to suggest that she is still in the employ of News Corp, at least nominally.

Intriguingly, the news comes just four months after acquitted Rebekah Brooks was reinstated as chief executive of News UK.

So did brooks axe the column of hacking era News Corp’s arguably most staunch outrider? It would seem astonishing for the matter not to have crossed her desk …
