Strikes work !
I'm expecting more mumble pie than humble pie from Sharp.
Talking of pie, it's a shame Lineker feels the need to be so conciliatory or diplomatic towards Davie, but nonetheless I enjoyed this shameless bit of marketing shoehorned into his Twitter thread.
I think it's a bit deeper than that. I doubt that Kuenssberg chose the tweets herself. She'll just have read what's on the autocue. Questions need to be asked of the programme editorial and research team IMHO.
What she actually said was:-Announcing her decision on Monday, Bruce said: "Last week on Question Time, I was required to legally contextualise a question about Stanley Johnson.
"Those words have been taken as an expression of my own opinions which they are absolutely not, and as a minimising of domestic abuse, which I would never do.
It also amuses me that it is presented as her decision to step back from Refuge and not the decision of Refuge who probably asked her to "step back" until the shootstorm passes.The presenter faced a criticism after stepping in when Johnson, the father of former Prime Minister Boris, was described as a "wife-beater" on last Thursday's episode of Question Time.
Bruce interjected, telling viewers: "Just so everyone knows what this is referring to, Stanley Johnson's [ex] wife spoke to a journalist, Tom Bower, and she said that Stanley Johnson had broken her nose and that she'd ended up in hospital as a result.
"Stanley Johnson has not commented publicly on that. Friends of his have said it did happen, it was a one-off."
It is clear that the BBC came under huge political pressure on Friday from without, and within...and they folded.
To be fair, they always do. They need to grow some cohones...
