|Three young ladies on Andrew Marr's sofa today|
Sticking with The Andrew Marr Show...
If ever I were to stand for public election, would it land me in the kind of serious hot water that people who misspeak so often land themselves in these days if I were to say on this blog, at this very moment, on this very day, that there wasn't just one Grace on Andrew Marr's sofa this morning but Three Graces (Grace Blakeley, Madeline Grant and Caroline Wheeler)?.
The regular all-women guest lists on the Andrew Marr show's paper reviews have drawn a lot of comment, so I thought I'd do a count of all the paper reviewers so far this year to see if the imbalance is as heavy as people claim..
It turns out that in 2019 there have been 10 men and 29 women.
Someone at the BBC (editor John Neal?) must, therefore, be earning lots of brownie points for ticking the BBC's diversity boxes well and truly above and beyond the call of duty.
The ladies today were a delight.
