|Never enough David|
A Twitter exchange involving my favourite financial pundit David Buik about Thursday morning's Today programme, which featured a certain Mr. Tony Blair:
David Buik: Surely there are other people worth talking to about their antagonism towards BREXIT and what to do about it than Tony BLAIR, who has been invited back AGAIN by the BBC TODAY PROGRAMME! Doesn't the audience deserve a bit of variety?
Richard Kakaso: He hasn’t been on in months and is an extremely well informed voice on the matter.
David Buik: Think you will find he was on much more recently than that. Tony Blair is very well informed but variety is the spice of life!
That reminded me of the old Rob Burley maxim that people you disagree with will sometimes be on TV, or the radio.
But who's right here? Is David correct about Tony Blair being on a lot, or Richard that he hasn't been on in months? Well, the former PM was last on Today just over a month ago (so Richard was mistaken about in being "months" since his last appearance, and this is a list of his eight appearances on the programme last year:
14 December 2018
7 September 2018
27 June 2018
22 May 2018
10 April 2018
29 March 2018
1 March 2018
4 January 2018
Is that excessive?
