Paxman’s replacement on Newsnight was one of the architects of the Poll Tax

There’s a surprise; the BBC employ a Tory to present a politically focused news show.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the BBC!)

The BBC has just announced that Evan Davis is to replace Jeremy Paxman as the main presenter of Newsnight.

His role will be to objectively interview politicians on both the left and the right about their policies.

Which might sometimes be a bit tricky for Evan.

Considering he was one of the main architects of Thatcher’s hated Poll Tax, regularly breaks strikes and once wrote a book called ‘Public Spending‘ in which he recommended the privatisation of all public services.


Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks;
