'Why do I pay my licence fee? I don't watch it. I don't agree with it.' Culture Secretary@NickyMorgan01  tells Political Thinking podcast that’s what she hears on doorstep BUT "We do need a national broadcaster with a very strong international footprint"

Should the government cut airport taxes to save Flybe ? @BBCr4today 

Cat love promiscuity on @BBCr4today ⁩. The story of the day ...

Her grandfather was a Liberal MP. Her Dad’s a Marxist. Her Mum’s a campaigning journalist. Her work experience with a Tory MP convinced her she was Labour. What shaped Leadership candidate @lisanandy . Listen/download now

It’s a clean break. A hard Megsit plus a Canada Plus Plus deal. Her Majesty turns out to be quite a tough negotiator #HarryandMeghan 

Prince Harry’s speech tonight is extraordinary. He makes clear that the “deal” is not what he & Meghan wanted and that he blames the media for what has happened. Watch it on their insta site here

@meralhece  @BBCr4todayInterviewer  asks question. Guest gets to answer question. Listeners make up their own minds. That's what sums up debate on @BBCr4today 

@meralhece  @BBCr4todayHaving  said that @hugorifkindinteresting  today : "There is something ugly afoot here; a mass, gleeful, defensive, self-justifying closing of the ears....When people tell you there’s a problem, it’s generally a good idea to listen. Chances are, they have a point "

I’ve heard it all now. The Brexit Secretary has just voted against the motion that he’d just been arguing for. Anyone got a better word than Omnishambles?

Thought for the day : Those you disagree with aren’t enemies or traitors. They don’t deserve to be “knifed or lynched or hanged”. They are just people you disagree with. Those who report news you don’t like aren’t fake or frauds or enemies of the people. They are just reporters.

Trump’s attack on ’s Jim Acosta is an attack on the right of all journalists everywhere to ask tough questions of people in power. That’s our job

Serve your country. Do your duty. Give your political masters what they demand. Get thrown to the wolves. The shoddy treatment of @KimDarroch  will have a chilling effect on the quality of advice the next Prime Minister receives

You know what ? Football did come home - brought us together, made us proud, gave us something to cheer 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Not long ago @jeremycorbyn  faced a crisis trapped between Remainers & Leavers and was shunned by other opposition parties. Now he’s able to stand up for democracy, work with a cross-party alliance & appear statesmanlike. Is that what people mean by No 10’s new strategic genius?

Now clear why Boris kept off air this week. Leave's promises - to get back £350m, to slash immigration & to have cake & eat it - all binned

That new Boris Brexit plan in full : * Leave "come what may" on 31/10 * Rip up deal EU spent 3 years negotiating * Agree new deal giving us no tariffs & no backstop & them less money * Hope Brussels, EU 27 & MPs find some "positive energy" & don't say "you've got to be kidding"
