After 32 years, the veteran broadcaster signed off his final edition of the Today Programme. Listen to it here…

What the Humphrys Saw

Guido understands that Nick Robinson decided that he was very interested in what was on his computer monitor rather than the studio guest during this morning’s interview with Dr Victoria Bateman.

Humphrys Blows DD Interview

Humphrys: I Can’t Explain My £650,000 Salary

John Humphrys on his £650,000-a-year salary: “I’m not sure I could explain it”. Mishal Husain is on a third of that, think she’d like an explanation…

A very tetchy few minutes for George Osborne as John Humphrys asks him again and again why he has missed his debt targets, and then the killer: “What’s a bloke got to do in your job to get the sack?” Osborne’s get-out for missing his surplus target by 2020? The commitment is that he will only meet that target “in normal times”…

It’s Not Easy Being Green Leader

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
