Dundee here we come?

At the conclusion of his speech to last year’s Society of Editors conference, its incoming president Donald Martin announced that next year’s gathering would be held in Glasgow.

"Where better to celebrate next year’s conference than in the great newspaper city of Glasgow. That’s a place where we work hard and party even harder," said the then editor of the city’s daily Herald and Times titles.

Following today’s surprise announcement that Donald is quitting the Newsquest-owned titles to edit DC Thomson’s Sunday Post, we wonder whether the SoE might be forced to change its plans.

Will it be a case of ‘Dundee here we come?’
