Bye Baby Bunting

Well that didn’t take long:

Madeleine Bunting has decided to resign as Director of Demos. Since it has emerged that her vision for Demos is incompatible with that of the trustees, she has decided to focus on her interests as a writer and a thinker at this point in her career. She will resume her regular column in the Guardian and her position as Associate Editor, and has agreed a book contract with the publishers Granta, on the future of the countryside

To recap, Maddy of the Sorrows accepted the Demos job on 14 June. She took up her position on 4 September. She resigned on 19 October.

Next step: Mother Superior of the Poor Clares and a life of poverty, chastity, and withdrawal from this sinful world.
