    I suspect he put his fees up and they told him he needs to be more cuddly. Cue a barney.

    I expect we will get a diverse presenter next.
    Maajid Nawaz is their only one. If the new one is as good as him I might listen.

    He's moving in with vetran and they'll be broadcasting pertinent journalism from his bedroom...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    why?

    Sacking the unfunny Nick Abbot and sadly lefty OBrien would be an improvement.

    Maajid has this problem that he often is misunderstanding something without being aware of that. This leads to some annoying conversations that he wants to prove his listener is wrong, while being confident he knows what he is talking about and the listener is trying to explain that he is actually missing the point. That makes his shows lack substance. He is, however, still the most interesting of the presenters.

    Yes that happens more often than Nick Ferrari but Maajid does really tackle some quite difficult topics that people have strong views on. Mostly I agree with his take as its considered and fair if not perfect. He just wants people to blossom.

    This week the 56-year-old compared Black Lives Matters protestors to the Taliban, for demolishing statues of slaves traders.
    Yeah, that'll get him kicked out

    If only Rupert Murdoch would set up a radio station, then Nige would be all set.
