51 - Pippa Crerar
Rachel Johnson's Difficult Women
Sunday, 22 May
Apart from perhaps Sue Gray, I can’t think of a woman more guaranteed to send chills through the corridors of power than Pippa Crerar. The incoming new political editor of the Guardian, Crerar was born in Edinburgh in the long hot summer of 76 and attended Glasgow Academy. Her career as a political journalist is garlanded with too many prizes and awards to mention here - she picked up a handful for breaking the story of Dominic Cummings day trip to Barnard Castle during lockdown and she has been like a dog with a bone when it comes to Partygate in all its various forms.
