  2. I've seen the low wattage Watt on This Week several times. He always struck me as useless and self-regarding with an annoying nasal twang. What happened to people with gravitas? - like him or loathe him, John Simpson was a fine reporter who more often than not correctly predicted the course of events. Most of the other people in for the job appeared equally lightweight. I don't rate Isabel Hardman at all. Have you read her stuff on the Referendum at the Spectator? It would be different produce anything more bland unless you put a slice of Edam on top.
