Flint: Second Referendum MPs are Patronising and Offensive

Wake Up With Ridge on Sunday

In a quick response to to Andrew Marr’s hurried announcement yesterday that his Sunday show is moving to ten o’clock, Ridge is grabbing the nine o’clock slot. Of course Peston has beaten them both by retreating to Wednesday nights. This all brings back memories of the great morning email wars of of 2017.* Smart move. Ridge will now be more likely to set the agenda…

*Won by Politico’s Jack Blanchard.

Marr Moving to 10AM

Andrew Marr, presumably accidentally, publicly tweeted to Sophy Ridge that his flagship BBC Sunday morning show is moving from 9AM to 10AM.

Longer Sunday lie-ins ahead for politicos? 

UPDATE: Andrew has deleted the tweet, and a hasty public announcement has been made.

Sophy on Sunday

Sky News have a new rival to the all male Sunday morning presenters of Marr, Brillo and Peston: Sophy Ridge will be hosting a new political programme called “Sophy Ridge on Sunday”. The show promises to get out of the Westminster bubble and “investigate how decisions made by the political elite affect the public and their lives”. Should mix it up a bit.
