The BBC’s new daily politics show sparked controversy after launching last Monday with an all-female line-up.
I have literally zero shame about an all-women panel. Zero. We invited people and they said yes and then we realised our best line-up was all female. If you have a problem with that, you have a problem. #politicslive https://t.co/FZNO5trhDE— Rob Burley (@RobBurl) September 3, 2018
Sorry Paul but you are just wrong. We put out lots of bids for big names in politics and political journalism and the best names we had for show one were women. That’s the absolute truth and it shouldn’t be an issue. https://t.co/SuXTBI8LDX— Rob Burley (@RobBurl) September 3, 2018
