Blogger Guido Fawkes has come up with his own candidate to edit the Independent if it is taken over by Alexander Lebedev. Rejecting Rod Liddle, the man tipped by MediaGuardian, Guido recommends former Spectator editor Matthew D'Ancona to lead an Indy that will back David Cameron's Conservatives.
His message to Lebedev is: "If you are looking for an editor to move the Indy from the Guardian dominated liberal-left space to the market opportunity on the liberal-right, there is one perfect candidate available. The Indy could become the Cameroon’s house-paper with the inside track on the next government if the editor was Matthew d’Ancona."
