Former Daily Telegraph associate editor Simon Heffer is reported to be back at his old paper The Daily Mail and working on a major blogging project.
According to blogger Tim Montgomerie Heffer is weeks away from launching a new multi-authored blog aimed at British and UK audiences.
Guido Fawkes speculated about this story last month and suggested a great name for the new blog network: The Heffington Post. According to Guido, Heffer was on gardening leave from the Telegraph until 1 August so unable to compete with his former employer until then.
Heffer’s exit from the Telegraph was announced in May.
Heffer seems to yo-yo between the Telegraph and the Mail. He was deputy editor of the Daily Telegraph before joining the Daily Mail as a columnist in 1995. He then returned to the Telegraph under then editor Martin Newland in 2005.
