Right on types at the Indy look away now. It would appear that your trendy new editor, Amol Rajan, is a supporter of the Countryside Alliance. He appeared on the Daily Politics recently sporting an alliance branded tie.
Mr Steerpike hears that when this was pointed out to Rajan in the Green Room by Ukip MEP Roger Helmer, Rajan denied all knowledge of the green, deer-horned number. Apparently, he bought it from a charity shop for sixty pence. I’m not sure whether that says more about the Countryside Alliance, the shop or the Indy editor.Tags: Amol Rajan, Countryside Alliance, Media, Roger Helmer, The Independent
