There’s going to be a short interruption of service on the FT Westminster blog.
The first reason is that Jim is on holiday. He’ll be back next week; if you see a Pickard post before then don’t mention it to his wife.
The second is that I’m bidding farewell Westminster. I will still be writing for the FT but from my new patch in Brussels. See it as a free transfer to the Brussels Blog.
The big money has been spent on hiring my successor Kiran Stacey, who will be blogging here from the moment the Commons authorities give him a pass (or even before). Regulars will remember Kiran from his prolific spell in Westminster last summer. He’ll do a great job.
So there’s been reshuffle. But as with all reshuffles, readers should expect almost everything to stay the same. Indeed I’ll probably be posting here again during the next Cameron brouhaha in Brussels. So goodbye until then.
