If Gavin loses he won't be back in his old role as a journalist, No one has listed someone who start off as a journalist, then went into politics and then come back again.

I get your point. That to come back to impartial news broadcasting would be harder now that your partial views are known. But I don't think many have taken that route, have they?

A few journalist/newsreaders need a good kick up the back side and made clear its their job to be impartial.

But at 66 years old, I don't think it's too big a stretch of the imagination to suggest that returning to the journalism career he left two years ago is unlikely to be high on his agenda? Although I could happily see him covering for James O'Brien on LBC at some stage.
Write that down in your copybook now.

I know we've had the incident with Jayne Secker but I feel these are rare. And I can't get on board with people analysing the facial expressions of presenters just to believe they are biased against my personal political views.


When it comes to social media it's more of a grey area. I think it's generally agreed that TV journalists can express their opinions on their personal accounts as long as they're not seen to be affiliated with a political movement. But I personally prefer not to follow the accounts of individual journalists unless it is someone I know and trust to be impartial.

Esther McVey did some current affairs stuff after CBBC.


Wasn't she a GMTV presenter at one point ? She also replaced Jenny Hull (whatever happened to her ?) as Des Lynham's sidekick on 'How Do They Do That'


I'm not sure whether she worked with Des or not, but she certainly presented it alongside Eamonn Holmes who replaced him.
