Sky News Political Editor: Down to the Final Three

MediaGuido understands that the final interviews for the Sky News political editor gig will be held tomorrow. Millbank bosses have narrowed it down to the final three, with one of the candidates still in the running describing the process so far as “attritional” and “rigorous, rigorous, rigorous”. Sky sources confirm if they go in-house we can expect an announcement imminently, if they choose an outside candidate we will have to wait. Stay tuned…

    “final interviews for the Sky News political editor”
    Q1 of 1: Would you be able to pursue the editorial line and keep a straight face, when an interview exposes an obvious and illogical contradiction of reality? Well in that case, welcome to the rabid ideology of institutionalized partisan hypocrisy then.

    I’m told that Charlotte is practising crossing her legs when it goes to adverts.
    I’m also informed that it is proving successful and un successful depending on your point of view.

    Are you in the running Fawkesy, if not why not or may I say it even a presenter on your own political show, the ability to think on your feet is a prime requirement and possibily the ability to weedle the facts out of obfuscating politicos cutting through the waffle, as such presenters are nearing retirement theres your chance, go for it!

    the waffle exists to fill the time/budget allocated for it

    I won’t bother watching if it goes to a
    biased BBC type.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
