  1. You know how this is going to pan out. The so-called ‘star’ men will be phased out and replaced by (cheaper) women – Woman’s Hour on a grander scale. If it gets rid of Lineker and Jeremy Vine I’ll vote for it. The BBC are either civil servants whose pay conforms to a rigid salary scale, or the organisation is privatised and enhanced salaries are paid for by their pay-to-view/listen customers rather than the general public.

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    Now, which sort of staff are more likely to bill heart-stopping quasi-illegal hours and which are more likely to leave early to pick up the children from tennis practice? Which are more likely to be promoted?

    You know, it is a mystery really. Must be sexism.

Jordan Peterson interview should be compulsory training for any politician or public figure to the right of Jeremy Corbyn in how to deal with the bigoted logical fallacy loaded ‘gotcha’ style interview that dominates the lefty media. Immediately counter the ‘puts words in your mouth’ moment from the loaded question, calmly repeat your true position, don’t lose your temper however annoying they are (which they always are) and point out that the reason you are there is that it is actually you not they who is the expert. “How can you make these sweeping generalisations” (she said doing nothing but) “because I’m a clinical psychologist” he replied with just the right amount of ‘how ridiculous is this woman?’ written on his face.
