Yep, the atrium will be used again as a presentation area for ITV's election night coverage.

For Preston and guests, not main pres unfortunately. Diabolical decision. Maybe Barbie’s boyfriend (Tom) can’t function in a real surrounding.
Please excuse any typing errors. I am on my third butterfly keyboard (Mac). An update is due the minute what I want is released. Smile

Jeremy Corbyn is on mainstream television again, for yet another live interview! (Holly and Phil).

Boris Johnson is nowhere to be seen. Is he on there tomorrow?

Given his recent performances in debates and interviews, I'd be very surprised if we actually see Boris in another TV studio before polling day. But even then, This Morning isn't exactly the hardest interview situation to walk into.

Exactly! It isn’t hard. But it has reach. It’s a smart move on JC’s part, IMO.

He knows that BJ won’t be anywhere near a studio (as you say), so is JC capitalizing on that fact by doing the rounds and addressing a variety of audiences?

If I were running, that’s what I’d be doing, knowing that the main opposition has a tv studio phobia.

Speaking of which, GMB are complaining that JC is appearing on ITV for a LIVE interview, yet he’s refusing to appear........on ITV for a LIVE interview......

OFCOM have rejected the Tory party complaint about Channel 4 empty chairing Johnson in the climate Leader's Debate.
Write that down in your copybook now.

One thing that this General Election 2019 campaign has really illuminated in quite stark fashion more than ever to me is the blatant way in which the parties are pushing a select couple of people forward across the media, both TV and radio, and hiding far more of their people well out of sight.

I think we could all name the same names of those who have been everywhere and those who have vanished.

Out of sight is not out of my mind! But its become obvious just who the Tories and especially Labour consider their vote losers to be kept out of the way.

Indeed, it’s also surprising that holders of portfolios in the Cabinet and their opposition equivalents have not been asked to debate on air, this time around, that would have opened many cans of worms, which some Would have wanted away from the viewing audiences. No need to name portfolios or personalities but some really would have been significantly challenged by such a confrontation.

This has been the case though as far back as I can remember. When it comes to media coverage at elections, the parties will push out a select number of people for national media appearances. Local coverage is often less stringent on this though, because the parties do need to push their local candidates in their local areas.

If ever a Chancellor v Shadow Chancellor debate was needed then this was the time. Vastly different alternatives. Javid v McDonnell. It's a major failure of this election campaign and has sold the electorate very short. Not Javid's fault, as I think he was keen to do so but was blocked.

Infact there is a good case that not just the potential PM's but all four main offices of State should have TV debates;

Johnson v Corbyn (PM)
Javid v McDonnell (Chancellor)
Patel v Abbott (Home)
Raab v Thornberry (Foreign)

That would streamline the process instead of the multiple formats that end up cannibalising the audience. I'd also have a fifth debate which is multi-leader as well.
