Veteran journalist Peter Oborne is set to return to the Daily Mail with a new political column.

Following his resignation from the Telegraph in February after he accused the newspaper of refusing to properly cover HSBC’s tax avoidance for commercial reasons, the award-winning journalist will start a new column at rival publication the Daily Mail.

On his decision, Oborne said: “I am thrilled to be going to the Mail.

“I have greatly missed writing a political column and I am looking forward to starting once again for the Daily Mail in the autumn.”

Oborne was the chief political columnist at the Mail until 2010 when he jumped ship to the Telegraph.
