#EverydaySexism Rife at Labour Conference

A rather patronising assumption to make about Cherry Wilson, who is a journalist at the paper specialising in features:

Meanwhile, Sky News political correspondent Sophy Ridge has had her own encounter with a dinosaur:

What would Harriet say?

WATCH: David Cameron Does Taylor Swift

Ever wanted to see Alex Salmond’s Freddie Mercury impression, Alistair Darling signing Rick Astley and David Cameron doing Taylor Swift? The nerds over at Sky News have produced the next best thing in their advert for the independence referendum:

“I used to think that we were forever ever…”

iBoulton

Sky are going all interactive for the new Adam Boulton evening show Sky News Tonight, launching on the first of the month:

“In a first for a major nightly news programme, Sky News Tonight will have comprehensive parallel output on social media, where users will be able to view – and engage with – a host of extra content that will follow, complement and enhance the live TV output, in real time.Viewers will be able to interact with the programme via Sky News’ social media platforms which will give them the power to engage in the discussion, contribute to the debate and even influence the agenda of the show. “

Given the number of people who sit watching TV whilst on Twitter now, it seems like a logical step. The show will also feature high profile interviews conducted from Westminster, at the far more reasonable time of seven through until nine – another reason not to stay up for Newsnight.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
