Today Programme

Opening day of EU campaign. Unequal treatment of Leave. Nick Robinson interviewed Alastair Darling for Remain. 7 questions, 3 interruptions. No negative introduction and no accusations of scaremongering. Then John Humphrys interviewed Gisela Stewart for Leave. 7 questions, 9 interruptions. JH introduced the piece by asserting everyone would be bored already and asked GS if she was coming on to perpetuate Project Fear. Several times JH used the word scaremongering, then engaged in his own Project Fear by implying opinions on Brexit were facts, eg length of time for a Brexit deal to be negotiated.

    Sadly, for very many Years, jh has been unable to hide his personal feelings on any subject. I don’t understand why he is still in this job.
