Simon Davis, the Evening Standard features editor who also doubles up as the paperÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s travel editor, is soon to leave Derry Street.
Although one source said that it has been an amicable parting of the ways, another said that his negotiating of a four-day week is said to have privately infuriated editor Veronica Wadley.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“No one has a four-day week at the Standard,Ã¢â‚¬ says my mole.
Davis, one-time Los Angeles correspondent for The Daily Telegraph Ã¢â‚¬’ he was fired by then editor Charles Moore Ã¢â‚¬’ is not likely to be without work for too long, I imagine.
Meanwhile, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a new sense of optimism among those who arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t leaving the ES Ã¢â‚¬’ theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all being issued with spanking new desks. It just goes to show that Associated does have loadsadosh in its coffers, whatever the bean-counters may say.
