Becky Milligan discussed the disputed selection of BBC historian Tristram Hunt as Labour's candidate in Stoke with Shaun Ley on yesterday's The World at One.
Or, more accurately put, she tried not to discuss the matter with Shaun Ley, quickly trying to generalise it beyond Labour ("And it's not just a Labour problem..." was just one such comment) and then, for some reason, moving swiftly on to the Conservatives and their recent "little local difficulty" in Surrey East, about which she talked at greater length and went into considerably greater detail.
So, asked for her view of events in Stoke, she spent 40 seconds discussing that, then 17 seconds discussing pure generalities then 48 seconds discussing Surrey East.
