Who will replace him?
According to the BBC, Kirsty Wark is top of the list and "other suggested contenders" include John Humphrys, Huw Edwards, Jeremy Vine and Nick Robinson. (What a thrilling list!).
Quite why Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell aren't being suggested in that BBC report is surely prove of the BBC pro-Brexit bias.
With all due respect to Lord and Alastair though, I'm predicting it will be a woman. The Guardian says there's pressure for it to be a woman, and I believe the Graun about that. The BBC is bound to give in to that kind of pressure (and feel smug about so doing).
So who will it be? Kirsty? Emma Barnett? Victoria Derbyshire? Katty Kay?
And who's off down the bookies tomorrow? I'm plumping for Victoria Derbyshire, main presenter of the effortfully worthy Victoria Derbyshire show.
