Why doesn’t Andrew Neil chair QuestionTime?
I’ve just watched the Andrew Neil interview on the Sunday Politics with Alex Salmond. This was brilliantly handled as you’d expect from Neil who must be the UK’s top political interviewer.
What I can’t understand is why Neil is put to one side for grand occasions. He famously was cast out onto a pleasure boat on the River Thames at the last election (wasn’t that total rubbish?) and he’s never given a chance being the main presenter of those programmes.
Also – what about Neil replacing the tired David Dimbleby on QuestionTime? He’d do a far better job.
