    God forbid LBC should surrender one of its many right wing presenters’ slots for this (largely) Labour crowd.

  2. Craig Strong says

    Won’t be a problem for Anna Soubry at all, she spent many years as a newsreader in Central TV

    1. LISA says

      interesting, I wasn’t aware of that

    2. Joe Smith says

      Yes but newsreaders don’t need to think whereas politicians do which might explain her problem.

      1. mb23 says

        Anna wasn’t only a newsreader, she hosted Central Weekend and other debate shows, until she left to become a barrister.

        1. Joe Smith says

          Then there is little excuse for her is there?

    correct me if im wrong, but aren’t they all remainers. not much contrast there!

    1. Mark says

      Meanwhile in the primetime 6pm slot we have Farage and Rees-Mogg all year round, as opposed to one week.
      Contrast?

    FLASH: Five radio presenters to guest in the House of Commons and run government.

  5. Spencer Payne says

    All remoaners
    Absolute disgrace

  6. William Campbell says

    Well, we do get Ferrari, Swarbick, Farage, Rees-Mogg, Dale and Castle, churning out Brexit, so just a bit of balance.
    James O’Bs programme slot (that they’re filling), is Remain- based, anyway and is the most honest and revealing on LBC. He has exposed Farage for what he is (as did Sheilagh, by the way) and made mincemeat of Rees-Mogg.
    Donald Tusk has it right about those Brexit ‘leaders’.

    1. Edward Soudan says

      All anti-Brexit. Nice balance LBC
