Another freedom fighter turned by power
Matthew D'Ancona can usually be relied upon to deal authority well-chosen blows in his perambulations around the Westminster village. However, his appointment as editor of The Spectator appears to have turned his head. Now that as a man with substantial influence himself he gets invited to intimate Tête-À-Têtes with cabinet ministers, especially those trying to caress the front page of Bonson Jorris's old rag, he is gradually becoming a full-blown statist; alas, just like everyone who gets too close to the Head of the Hydra.
Witness his recent approval of the destruction of Habeas Corpus.
He should resign as the editor of The Spectator, immediately.
