An illogical decision. How long does it take to read the results? and what is so pressing that it has to be ditched.

Maybe the Beeb could compromise & read them in Urdu?

I see Jeremy Paxman is retiring from University Challenge due to ill health.

I wonder who from the diversity brigade will replace him. I am not expecting it to be pale male and stale.

Finally, a bit of diversity on TV. Never thought I'd see the day that bastion of whiteness would change.
I'm sometimes watching TV wondering if we live in South Africa during Apartheid - particularly the ads. Kudos to the BBC and thanks to the Guardian for daring the racist backlash when reporting this.

Ex footballer Alex Scott is

1. Female 2. Mixed Ethnic 3. LGBT

Difficult for the BBC to top all of that list....but surely they will try ? We will not be getting john Cleese nor Paul Gascoigne to replace Bamber Gascoigne

Its Amol Rajan, a negative piece in the Daily Fail. Apparently the BBC insiders are moaning that he was given a job did well and then got other bigger and better parts. I think they call that a career.

Don't know the bloke never seen him but this does sound like sour grapes from some in the BBC. ITV were willing to pay big bucks for the guy so they must see something in him which presumably is why the BBC upped his salary.

Well he is replacing 2 iconic presenters on the show if he's not up to the job the viewers will soon turn off.

I cannot believe they are appointing another man. Blatant misogyny!

I agree with you on the Queen's English and Alex Scott - winds me up something rotten!
I rarely watch football focus now but the other day it was three women and one man.
Soon it will be all women whose views on men's football rarely match my own.

Good point well made. I always have that feeling that they either bat at both ends, like shining the ball, check how much grass is on the pitch, or like a sticky wicket, however, to use some cricket analogies.

Amol Rajan is no plain speaker either... I expect any number of requests to repeat the question per programme once he takes over.

In last night’s Eastenders episode:

2 black brothers are giving out their food in the marketplace when the market inspector approaches.

One brother says to the other ‘here comes an angry white man!’.

I wasn’t in the slightest offended but was just left wondering what if it had been other way round and the inspector had said ‘there’s two annoyed black men!’.
