I started the thread because I thought I would be worth noting how the news organisations covered what may be unprecedented events.
I think the problem is that nowadays the broadcasters don't really come up with anything new unless the news is absolutely cataclysmic. Gone are the days of a 9/11 thread where we spent at least 20 pages discussing how BBC World had aired its hitherto unheard sombre theme music. There is rarely new presentation that gets an outing and simulcasting has become such the norm that it's not noteworthy. Events like 9/11 led to presentation changes that none of us had ever seen before. Similarly with Diana's death. These days nothing much new happens. Hence why it's probably best to be covered in the mega threads as anything of a political nature ends up veering off course in the current toxic climate.
Surely parliament getting officially prorogued, but an unofficial parliament sitting elsewhere is a cataclysmic event?
160 of our MP's have signed onto this yesterday, even before the announcement, so I could see more signing on now. And it will affect broadcasting in other ways.
a) Can't sit in HoC, so cameras will have to be set up elsewhere. Presumably as an outside source into Millbank.
b) No PMQ's, as it's not official.
c) The rules about 'parliament footage in comedy programmes' might not apply (obviously never been tested)
Something as big as this could get new special pres. Maybe if BBC Parliament is ran from elsewhere - not Millbank - The graphics may be Reithed.
