Juxtapositions at the BBC

Is it any wonder that the viewing figures for political TV programmes are abysmal?

Switching on BBC 1 late last night and the This Week programme, I was greeted by a screenfull of Michael Portillo, John Reid and Andrew Neil.  Needless to say I switched straight back off again.

Why would any woman, even a political one, want to view overly made up, elderly men struggling to hide the liver spots and wearing bright green shirts which scream ‘I’m young and hip, really I am’.  Why?

Mid-way through hitting the change button on the remote, Andrew Neil announced that the next item was about the glass ceiling and the problems women have getting into the board room and securing the top jobs.

You just couldn’t make it up.

Wake up BBC. Get your act together. It’s our money, remember?

PS Apologies to John Reid, who is really quite nice and probably the only one of the three to agree with me on this.
