Faisal Islam New Sky Pol Ed

Following MediaGuido’s coverage yesterday, Sky News have confirmed that Channel 4’s Faisal Islam will replace Adam Boulton as political editor later in the year. He was on form last night when Guido bumped into him at the Political Book Awards. Best of luck…

      Adam Boulton’s career was probably extended after Brown gave him the dead eye.

      So even old Mad Murdoch has to employ the swarthy one rather that the one who was best for the job. The world has gone fucking mad and I will never watch any Sky shows again because of this. #boycottSky #racistSky #notoPC

      You know its the truth says:

      Well another 50 years or so and we will truly be a third world country, the enrichers will have enriched us so much that only the rich elite will have power to run their homes and factories ( min.wage3p) whilst us enriched plebs will sit around campfires to keep warm, listening to our elders telling us about flat screen TV’s and central heating. It doesn’t matter to me as I haven’t long to go but I fear for my grand children if something doesn’t change and soon.
      Viva the revolution.

    There is only one thing that this organisation will pay attention to and that is if people stop paying for SKY.

    I have to say that Asians have more on the television stations as Weather presenters, Local News presenters, Sports presenters and political presenters.
    Not many North Eastern, North Western, South Western white English presenters and Norfolk is definitely under represented. What has happened to our dialects?

    Shame.
    I’ve never rated his journalistic ability on Channel 4.
    Can’t understand why Sky would overlook talented
    staffers with proven track records.

    Don’t think I will be able to trust sky news after this. Islam commands its followers to lie if its to show Islam in a good light. Why not employ one of those (soon to be) minority ethnically British people instead?

    watching him perform on channel four it would seem sky are moving to the left, as faisal is not known for his unbiased reporting, the poor old tories who usually have an easy time on sky, could find themselves with no friends in the broadcast television, how sad

Following the revelations about Brooks Newmark’s paisley pyjamas, Hugo Rifkind wonders in this week’s Speccie what other politicians wear in bed:

“Chuka Umunna will sleep in Calvin Klein briefs, all the better to catch a glimpse of himself in the mirror on his ceiling.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
