Robinson for Dummies mdi-fullscreen
Nick Robinson is complaining that the Prezza furore is another example of some blogs trying to make the political weather. Let’s be clear. This isn’t because he is a bad journalist who suffers from censorship, or that he has a political agenda. Remember, Guido doesn’t make the sleaze, he just sails in it, and the good ship is a jolly, multimedia, pirate ship.

Nick’s comment does however come over as a tad arrogant, does the BBC have a monopoly on political / weather reporting? Nick is a great reporter, but his hands are tied in an emasculated post-Hutton BBC constantly worried about future funding. If the rest of the media want to follow Guido’s reports that is up to them. It says something when a multi-billion pound licence-fee bloated BBC news operation is being led by the nose by a lone blogger with a lap-top, on holiday posting bits ‘n pieces in between lunch, sips of rosé and visits to the beach. He was the weather-maker once.

N.B. Since Guido is on holiday he is not taking any calls and all comments will be made on the blog and on the record. Email queries to Guido. Guido doesn’t do TV, Iain Dale does though…
