Miranda Green, Paddy Ashdown’s former press secretary, is joining
the Financial Times as assistant UK news editor. After helping with
Ashdown’s handover to the new Lib Dem leader Charles Kennedy, Green left
the party in October last year to join the BBC’s On the Record as a
researcher. She joins the FT in April to work under home news editor
George Parker. He took the role just before the relaunch of the FT’s UK
edition in October.
