According to Guido, Mehdi Hasan has departed the New Statesman for some sort of gig at the UK website of the Huffington Post.
He’s bagged a massive promotion in both status and influence by joining the Huffington Post. Guido just spoke to one of Mehdi’s fellow lefty hacks:
Lefty: Has he been fired?
GF: Well he’s going to the HuffPo, so you could put it like that.
Lefty: Oh god that’s worse than being fired. That’s worse than being dead.
Are they going to pay him?
I expect we’ll hear more.
