Murnaghan Paper Review

On Sunday morning I appeared on the Murnaghan show on Sky News to review the Sunday newspapers alongside Bonnie Greer and Nus Ghani MP.

Discussing Zac Goldsmith's campaign I said "I'm really pleased London rejected it and I suspect we will never see a campaign like that in London again".

Commenting on Sadiq Khan's article in The Observer, in which Sadiq argued that Labour has to be a "big tent that appeals to everyone not just its activists", I welcomed Sadiq's argument and stressed that in London Labour won because the campaign emphasised mainstream issues such as housing and looked outwards and avoided alienating the electorate through in-fighting.

The issue of BBC Charter Renewal was also raised, and I stated that "the bad blood we are seeing between Culture Minister John Whittingdale and the BBC is unprecedented... the pre-briefing we are seeing is very threatening to an institution that is loved".

My comments were also reported by The Guardian, The Mirror, Daily Mail and Huffington Post.
