Having joined the Telegraph from the Mail, Peter Oborne seems to have undergone a 'Damascene' conversion!
The question is asked following his op-ed piece in today's Telegraph, when compared to this, written only last July - and this, written just days earlier.
He who pays the piper...........? So much for 'journalistic integrity'!
Update: This quote from Samizdata is priceless:
"That paragraph is written in a tone of approval. Now, unless I have missed something, wasn't Mr Oborne the man who wrote a book a few years ago condemning the rise of a political class that tended to associate its own material interests with those of the country? I remember at the time pointing out that Oborne failed to give due weight to the significance of the European Union in all this. Well, now it appears he has become a sort of cheerleader for Britain giving ever greater sums of money to countries determined to pursue wrongheaded economic policies.
Well, it was nice knowing you, Peter."
