Last week's paper reviewers on The Andrew Marr Show were two anti-Tories, Ruby Wax and John Sergeant. I sulked "There'd better be at least one rightie on next week's paper review!" Not a sheep advised me not to hold my breath, and I'm glad I took his advice or I'd now be in hospital! Today's paper reviewers were also both lefties.
The first was comedian/actor Chris Addison (Ollie in The Thick Of It), who has said:
"It's very difficult, if you were brought up as a child during Thatcher's period, to ever contemplate being a Tory. There is no way I can physically bring myself to vote Tory. That will stay with me till I die."
He defended Brown today against The Daily Express.
The other was Kirsty Young (of Desert Island Discs), whose leftism I record here:
Here she had another go at The Mail on Sunday's take on things.
Still, unlike last week, neither screamed blue murder against the Conservatives. We can be thankful for that, at least.
So, for the sake of balance I'm sure the makers of the Marr Show will pick only righties for the paper reviews of both their next programmes. My breath will not be held!!
