Look who's stalking NoW… it's Desmond

What is it with Richard Desmond and former News of the World staffers?

First, the former royal editor of the Screws Clive Goodman’s byline pops up in the Daily Star Sunday after he’s finished his stint at Her Majesty’s Pleasure following the furore over the phone-tapping of the royals.

Now the NoW’s former newsdesk supremo Alex Marunchek is one half of a joint byline in the Sunday Express on a story about ‘Nazi victims exploited in internet trade”.

Axegrinder wonders who will be the next Wapping exile to turn up in the pages of the Express owner’s titles. Just as well that former Screws editor Andy Coulson has a well-padded berth working as the spin doctor for Tory leader David Cameron.
