Where was Rob?

This week's Newswatch aired several of the main concerns about the BBC's Conservative leadership debate - (1) everyone talking at the same time, (2) the dodgy imam, (3) the Labour-affiliated questioner, (4) the stools, (5) Emily Maitlis's interruptions, (6) Emily Maitlis's interruptions of Boris specifically and (7) whether the whole thing provided more heat than light. I was rather expecting Rob Burley to come on to answer such points, but guest presenter Rebecca Jones informed viewers, "We asked BBC News for someone to come on the programme to discuss those questions but our request was declined." Maybe they should have 'empty-chaired' him!
