Never will like the bloke but I do like what he says about his former employer in today's Times (paywall).

So, are you going to keep those of us who don't read that paper in suspenders?  Smiley Smiley

Sorry. because of the paywall I can't cut and paste but basically what he said in some typical humour was that political correctness rules, no male should think of applying for a job, Nick Robinson's interview for QT was "a waste of petrol" and the audience (for all TV) is now comprised of seven people in Islington. Actually, a scrutiny of the Christmas viewing stats showing how few people are watching, even on timeshift, means he isn't far from the truth!   I thought that with just a few exceptions the output was dismal and hardly any programme was watched in our family circle. As for Luther.....unbelievable levels of gratuitous violence leading to an early OFF !
