A Genuine Conservative Opinion Editor at the Times

No, not the New York Times. That could happen today only under the most bizarre of circumstances. It’s the Times of London, the Thunderer herself, who will soon welcome as Comment Editor none other than Tim Montgomerie, editor of the vastly influential ConservativeHome website and occasional contributor here as well. This is a very well deserved appointment for someone who is not only a true conservative, but one of nature’s gentlemen as well. I’m going to open my iPad edition of the Times every morning with renewed relish now.
