Fraser Nelson takes over at the Speccie

Conservatives should not expect any favours.

I am delighted that 36 year old Fraser Nelson has taken over as editor of the Spectator, following the departure of Matthew d’Ancona, his forthright views on the economy and his political acumen will not be lost on an incoming Conservative government. For those who only get to read his short snippets in The News of the World you will know that he has some fairly traditional views for a young man, and that Cameron and the Conservatives cannot expect a comfortable ride from him after the next general election.

I have always been struck by his tenacity and his nose for a story or angle that will cut deeply into a politician’s skin. Who can forget that memorable moment when he well and truly rattled Gordon Brown long before anyone else realised that Labour were planning “cuts”?
