As Jonathan Milne has left the Sunday Star Times to go to the Sunday Herald as political editor this has left a vacancy - and it is JT's press secretary Helen Bain who has taken his place. Helen cut her teeth on the Wairarapa Times Age before being a political reporter for the Dominion (interestingly Milne left the same paper to do political editing for the SST).
So JT now has just one Helen to run his speeches by.
Will the Sunday Herald turn out to be the ghost of the former SST? Sue Chetwin is also joining the team.
