They’ve only scheduled the news special to last 35 minutes surely that’s not enough to carry the whole conference and then analysis afterwards.

That's what I was thinking. They will probably have to cancel the 7.35pm programme.

It's Panorama in that slot which can be shifted to Wednesday at the same time or next Monday.

Things were always going to slip today based on similar events previously. They do need to get the sort of routine the daily 5pm briefings gave them if they genuinely want to remove any confusion.

Yeah - doing it at 7pm will result in a smaller audience because millions of people will be watching the soaps on ITV instead!

Extended news on a 24 hour news channel- whatever next? I chuckle when the self-styled modern, digital-first Sky News excitedly uses the language of linear TV.

This is the same channel that has 2 hours of rolling news a day branded as 'The News Hour'... 🙄🙃
Seems that 'The News Hour' programme is extended by an hour every day... 😆🙄

With Laura Kuenssberg starting the press section by asking about 5 questions, there is no way this will be finished by 7:30

We haven’t even got to Peston yet!

I never get why they don't limit questions to 1-2 per person.

Luckily, it's only Panorama that can be dropped without too much bother.


No, they've cut the PM off and are showing Panorama.
The newsreader referred viewers to the BBC News channel to carry on watching it...

Guess the journalists think the more questions they ask the more chance they might actually get one answered.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.
