Media commentator Roy Greenslade is understood to have resigned from The Daily Telegraph after his spread on the City Slickers affair was spiked last week.
Greenslade is believed to have quit on Friday and will leave at the end of March after negotiating an early end to his one-year contract.
This week his contribution to the Telegraph’s Tuesday pages was again reduced to just one left hand column. It is understood that a piece he wrote on the Profumo affair for his spread was rejected and replaced with an article on Vodafone.
The same fate befell Greenslade’s City Slickers spread the previous week. In it, he reported that the Press Complaints Commission was looking into the affair once again following evidence given in the trial of ex-Slicker James Hipwell.
There is speculation Greenslade may return to The Guardian.
