James Macintyre has left the New Statesman after two years as political correspondent in order to work on other projects.

His departure is entirely amicable.

James joined the New Statesman as a political correspondent in September 2008, having previously worked for the Independent, the BBC and Granada.

James said: “I have worked for the NS for over two years during a fascinating period of change both on the magazine and in politics. It is now the right time for me to pursue other projects. I wish the NS every success and I’m looking forward to writing for the magazine in the future.”
