Draft, Written, Published - and out

It seems to have turned into a month of departures.

First a former minister, then a current one - and now it's my turn. Less sensational resignation than planned farewell, but all the same, I'm off.

I'll miss the 'Draft', 'Written' 'Approved' and 'Published' buttons. I'll probably miss them more than some of those comments that stuck resolutely in certain grooves, no matter what the issue, what the problem, what the challenge. I still read them mind.

Thank you for sticking with me and thank you for reading, watching and listening. If you fancy doing even more listening in future, that'll be fine by me given where I'm now heading.

Keep an eye out for the reshuffle. The next Political Editor will be along soon.

Draft, Written, Approved, Published - and out.
