After six months out of journalism, former Evening Standard Veronica Wadley is about to return to the fray. An announcement about her new job is expected shortly.
Following her departure, after ex-KGB agent Alexander Lebedev took a majority stake in the paper, Wadley snapped back at the Standard's "sorry" ad campaign in which it apologised to Londoners for having been too negative in the past.
"London is laughing at this ludicrous campaign. It is utterly humiliating for the staff and contributors. They are in despair," she told MediaGuardian and said of the Standard's new editor: "As for Geordie Greig, well, Etonians have a history of collaborating with the KGB."
