There was definately some scandal. My journalist friend told me. It was in all the papers, except the Mirror, because she comes from the same village as Piers Morgan.

But, Newsroom, with your "extensive" experience at RTE, I am sure you know best.

Newsroom, have a look at this, and in future, do your own research.

It's in all the papers, bar the Mirror as I said before. This is one website and a short quote from it, but it is easily accessible online.

Woman who chose Blair's ties leaves family for Sky man



By Nicole Martin



(Filed: 15/07/2002)





The woman formerly known as the "gatekeeper" to Tony Blair has become romantically involved with the political editor of Sky News.

Anji Hunter, who until she left the Government last year had worked with Mr Blair for much of his political career, is said to have formed an intimate relationship with Adam Boulton.

It is understood that the pair, who are in their forties and married with children, have left their marital homes to pursue their relationship, which apparently began two years ago on an official visit to Paris.

It's because he "apparently" has a job at RTE, but in fact I think that is a leeeetle bit of an exaggeration, don't you, Newsroom?

fishcakes you made your point and provided the evidence well, but let us not descend into personal attacks, they are boring.

Whether you believe me or not fishcakes is your business-one way or the other it does not bother me in the slightest......now can we get back to SkyNews?

BTW-that article was interesting however I do not understand me giving an air of "superiority"-however I have taken it as a compliment.

BTW, maybe "know it all" would have been better

I don't know about over there in Ireland, but here, "know it all" (note not "know-all") is used for someone who is a bit arrogant for no reason.

And don't assume that you are the only one with knowledge of how a newsroom works!

You are a wannabee know it all, Newsroom, which is why you like to appear you know everything about Sky because you work at RTE. A few weeks work experience in the school summer holidays does not give you the right to act like you do
