@ShonaMurrayNT In this particular case, an accountable elected politician provided an excuse for an offensive comment which does not stand up to scrutiny - she hadn't done 6 hours of media at all - and surely journalists should be scrutinising that fact.
Just a heads up. There’s no demographic in Britain to whom this new party appeals to more than senior journalists at national broadcasters and newspapers. It’s their worldview made into a party. Do bear that in mind in the coverage in the days and weeks ahead.
