From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Times they are are a’changing at News. Crikey was interested to be copied into this email from News Limited’s Queensland editorial director David Fagan to all editorial staff. Sounds like the seamless transition to a “single state newsroom, serving a true seven-day print and digital operation” is going tickety-boo. We were intrigued to learn the new regime has a “Head of Vision”, but it turns out this relates to photographs, not evangelical leadership. Crikey does love a good office email so feel free to cut and paste us in any time.

    Surprised at what Abbott “reads” – as opposed to what he doesn’t?
    Look at what he wants to do to the country – in the name of Rightness.

    Rather than Jane Austen’s Mr Collins, I think Tony Abbott would be far better at playing Edward Casaubon from George Elliot’s Middlemarch.

    Can he read at all? Seemed to have difficulty with the latest BHP report

    “Fagin”? To “Joyce Malaprop” (often quoted as being “one of his” but actually from Sheridan)?

    True Paddy, but we were asked specifically to name a character from Pride and Prejudice. Had I been able to choose it would have been Faust for sure!
