And so farewell to blog favourite Newsnight's Lewis Goodall, who is departing the BBC in September to join Jon Sopel and Emily Maitlis at Global. Mark Urban might be left switching having to switch off the studio lights at this rate. Steerpike at The Spectator pays handsome tribute to the departing Lewis:
Departing from the BBC means that now Goodall is, at last, free to share his political views that have been so well-concealed to date.
The top comment at Guido Fawkes hit the spot too:
I for one will be curious to learn what Lewis's real views are now that he will be no longer having to work under BBC impartiality rules.
Maybe LBC should add another B to their name and become LBBC?
