    Are any of them BAME, LGBTQ+-XYZ or disabled? If you’re going to virtue signal you have to tick all the boxes otherwise some self appointed PC morality guardian on twitter will be offended and we can’t have that.

      Very kindly, and quietly please just do one. Back to 1979 preferably.

        Oh dear, a snowflake has been triggered. Perhaps you need a session in a safe space cuddling the therapy teddy?

    What on earth are you talking about? Women are responsible for some of the best radio I’ve heard, they have made excellent colleagues during my time in the industry and I learned loads from several female news editors. Grow up.
