Have you ever listened to Nihal on 5 Live? Any day, take your pick!
I miss Peter Allen from Radio 5.Nihal Arthanayake is a former Radio 1 dj, was never and is still not known for skill with forensic political analysis. He seems more at home discussing recipes for Eggs Benedict or what happened on last nights episode of Eastenders. If you don't mind me noting you are being extremely selective in your Five Live presenter to try shore up a rather weak argument. If you look at some of the other presents such as Nicky Campbell, Rachel Burden, Emma Barnett Adrian Chiles they impartially interrogate whoever they are interviewing. They certainly do not give the interviewee a very easy time but to suggest political bias is quite frankly laughable. Emma Barnett in particular cops for quite a lot of flak for her sometimes aggressive interview style. The thing is though she only adopts this stance when Bozo's next stooge gets wheeled out to defend something which quite frankly is plainly indefensible and then they refuse to answer straight questions.
When I was working I would have fired any of my men who lifted a hand against me or anyone else.Turning point for me was when the fired Clarkson from Top Gear after he chinned his producer p1ssed because he couldn't get a steak...... appalling behaviour from the BBC.... on principle I'll never watch/listen/read them again,..
