When it comes to implementation, common sense will come into play - single writers may be co-commissioned a writer to ensure gender balance, for example.


That's not common sense though. Imagine if Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong had been told they had to work with another writer - male or female - to get another series of Peep Show produced, simply as a box ticking exercise.
.

The commissioner was literally talking only about "writers rooms". Going by Twitter it seems only a few commenting have a clue how they operate.

Everyone who went into a rage about box ticking would have known this if they'd actually read what ITV said. Rolling Eyes I can't believe how thick people are.

Jonathan Pie is not on "the left", indeed some of his material is written by a guy involved with Spiked. He plays it as a down the line centrist, although these days that means you have compassion but like the occasional joke that punches down instead of up.

Also: I would caution a forum full of men that your lived experiences are not the same as a woman's. And if you're listening to JBP for any kind of rationality then you're in the wrong place.

But that's possibly a derail and not one I think would be appreciated. Suffice to say: The guy dresses his weird ethno-Christian views up in pseudoscience and big words and people lap it up.
