Who Is On Question Time Tonight?

Tonight’s episode is in Birmingham. Sadly Brummie firebrand Jess Philips won’t be making an appearance…

Alan Yentob Quits

Alan-Yentob-001

Yentob’s statement in full:

“The BBC is going through particularly challenging times and I have come to believe that the speculation about Kids Company and the media coverage revolving around my role is proving a serious distraction.

“So I have spoken to Tony Hall and told him that I think it best that I step down from my senior management role as Creative Director at the end of this year and focus on programme making and TV production – including of course the Imagine Series. I will also continue supporting Christine Langan and her team as Chairman of BBC Films.

“I love the BBC and will continue to do everything I can to ensure that it thrives and fulfills the great expectations we all have of it.”

At last!

ITV’s Allegra Stratton

As rumoured last week, Newsnight’s Allegra Stratton is off to ITV:

“BBC Newsnight’s Political Editor Allegra Stratton is to join ITV News’ line-up of specialist experts in the newly-created role of National Editor.

Allegra will work across ITV News’ full range of programmes, appearing frequently on News at Ten. In her new role, she will provide insight and in-depth analysis of the domestic and policy issues that matter to our viewers.”

Stratton is not thought to have got on brilliantly with Ian Katz. Wounder for the BBC as ITV News at Ten bolster their line up further. Newsnight looks like a sinking ship

Diane Abbott’s “Good Mao”

This from the archives emerged last night:

Mao seems to have more than one shadow cabinet fan…

Tonight’s episode will be from Wythenshawe in Manchester. Maybe Ken will finally give a proper apology

Chinese Labour Camp Victim Contradicts McDonnell’s Green Room Claim

John McDonnell was on the Today programme this morning to defend his Mao “joke”, where he was condemned by Chinese author Diane Wei Liang, who was sent to a labour camp as a 3 year-old and forced to quote from the Little Red Book. McDonnell boldly claimed that he had spoken to Liang off air, and that she told him that she understood his ‘joke’:

“I just had a chat with that young lady – that lady – and she said ‘actually I understood the joke'”

Liang herself told Today that she absolutely did not understand it, and that as a labour camp victim she did not find it funny at all:

“Not I can understand perhaps because of my background. I grew up in China and to me it was not very funny and I rather think it’s not funny for the millions of people who died during Mao’s regime, nor for those who lived through those times.”

Who to believe? The Chinese Labour camp internee or John McDonnell?

Miliband Burned By Jim Naughtie

Ed Miliband was talking Corbyn on the Today programme this morning:

Miliband: “I’m not gonna be a back-seat driver.”

Naughtie: “Well having crashed the car it’s difficult to do that.”

Miliband: “Thanks.”

Ouch.

Tim Farron is asked by GQ how he will be remembered:

“I won’t be. So there’s no point in worrying about how you’d like to be remembered at all.”
