Political

Is the Today programme going to launch a political party?

I only ask because, whilst it has become traditional for other political parties to copy Liberal Democrat policies, Today has now started doing the same.

Perhaps it is the start of a John Humphrys for Parliament campaign? (Though let’s hope he doesn’t find his attempt to vote for himself scuppered by the failure of his local council to remind him that he signed up for a postal vote; I mean – being told nine times by the council that you have a postal vote isn’t really often enough is it?)

In case you’re wondering if it is site value rating that Today has come out in favour of, actually no. Rather they’ve lifted lock, stock and barrel Nick Clegg’s Great Repeal Act / Freedom Bill idea and are running their own series to find laws to axe cunningly called … wait for it … The Christmas Repeal.

They did though have the decency to give one of the slots to Nick Clegg, and if you missed it you can listen again on the Today archive page – you want the entry for 18th December, 8:50am.
