With no signs of the lock down ending and therefore the papers continuing to be broadcast remotely its about time they used the opportunity to feature people not based within the M25 who wouldn't ordinarily feature due to the journey to NBH not being worth it.

We got an unusual threesome on Sky News this evening. Added to Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire we got a bonus of Claire Fox too. I wonder why they invited Claire to muscle in on the Pierce/Maguire double act. Not seen three paper reviewers before like that.

Andrew Pierce returned after a severe case of coronavirus.

Don't any of the paper shows book the Westminster Correspondent of the Yorkshire Post to do that? I know Newsnight have in the past.

Most ignorant question yet just asked at the 5pm briefing from Tim Ross at Bloomberg. He actually asked this.......

"Do you really think it will be a good idea for the UK to leave the European Union if the UK economy is in or just coming out of recession?"

Thankfully Sunak put him straight on recent British history rather promptly in his answer.
And he works for a news channel? How did he not know Brexit had already happened?

But we haven't actually left yet . Or agreed a future relationship. That's all supposed to be being negotiated by June!

We left the EU on 31 January - the occasion was covered extensively in the media and on here. The 'transition period' and future trade negotiations with the EU are a consequence of Brexit, not part of the process of leaving. A failure to reach a trade agreement does not change the events of 31 January.

Trade negotiations are also happening with other countries. Neither of these activities could happen until we left the EU.

A quite moving end to Newsnight tonight with images of key workers who have died due to Coronavirus, cut with extracts from the Queen’s address on Sunday.


Indeed. The entire programme was brilliant and the opener has garnered quite some attention. Maitlis really is in a class of her own.

Clip for anybody who hasn't seen.





Emily Maitlis really is one of the UK's outstanding broadcasters. Consistently brilliant.

Regardless of whether what Maitless said was correct or not, since when has the presenter of a BBC news and current affairs programme been able to do what appeared to be the case here, the equivalent of an opinion piece in the way the newspapers do each day. Were these words the personal opinion of Maitless or the collective opinion of Newsnight as a whole, in the way that say the Daily Mail places its opinions? So whose views are these and even more importantly where is the hard fact based data to back them up.

How is this an opinion piece? She's just eloquently reading some simple facts.

You're entailed to your opinion like everyone else is, but I think you'll find yourself among the minority with this one, and that includes the remark liking her to Tucker Carlson of Fox News which quite frankly is one of the most comedy posts I've read here.

She's been applauding the world over for last night's programme. In fact Newsnight's coverage of this Pandemic has IMO been flawless.
