No Newsnight

I am still getting over last night's Newsnight.

Two worthy pieces, on Russian Eurasianism and on the Turkish AKP's questioning of the Treaty of Lausanne, were run on the same night.

Followed by a feature on Danish cinnamon buns, and then by a discussion of staffing issues at the Globe Theatre.

Yesterday, the man who in May was the governing party's candidate for Mayor of London resigned both from that party and from the House of Commons.

He will contest the consequent by-election as an Independent, in opposition to what is by far the Government's biggest policy of any kind.

But you would never have known any of that from the BBC's flagship news and current affairs programme.

    We know who didn't write this, don't we? The Acting Head of Press and Broadcasting at The Labour Party, who based on Newsnight is obviously rubbish at it.
