Naughtie Wishes Democrats “Good Luck”

Jim Naughtie has been accused of being partial before – in May 2005 the Today programme presenter caused a row when he asked Labour’s Ed Balls: “If we win the election, does Gordon Brown want to remain Chancellor?” He is perceived by many listeners to be ferociously anti-Bush over Iraq.

Listen to the end of this segment where he asks a leading Democrat what they will do to change the country. The Democrat politician lays out their agenda. Naughtie wishes him “good luck”! Some Americans think that the BBC is institutionally against the Republican Party – fancy that.

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
