Nudge, nudge

Gillian Reynolds, the doyenne of radio critics (as I seem to always call her), reviewing a Radio 4 programme called The Disrupters, which "tells stories of business success and failure", also in today's Sunday Times, said something in passing that struck me as being quite interesting. She was saying that Editorial Director of BBC News Kamal Ahmed's reorganisation of BBC radio news showed that he was no good at either teamwork or admitting mistakes (well, he is BBC after all) but at least he has nerve: "I will admit it certainly required nerve to nudge quite so many outstanding reporters, Mark Mardell for one, into early retirement." I wasn't aware that we have Kamal to thank, though I don't think Gillian herself approves of Kamal's "nudging".
