Working on @BBCr4today has been so much fun, the very serious business of the news aside, and a great privilege to deliver it as the UK wakes. Thank you @bbcnickrobinson for such a generous tribute at 08.10 — I’m going to miss you all — BUT I’M NOT RETIRING! 😁
A huge thank you to @zebsoanes in the studio for his last Today Programme this morning with @bbcnickrobinson and @BBCSimonJack. A masterclass as ever and always a huge privilege for us to have his calm presence and beautiful tones at 0600.

Enlightenment, intelligence and emotion in a podcast: I recommend the Political Thinking interview by @bbcnickrobinson with @MartinSLewis. (Even if you listened to the radio version, the podcast is longer and deeper). bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0018nf…

Really excellent interview by @bbcnickrobinson with @MartinSLewis - discussing antisemitism, mental health and Scrabble "rack management" as well as the cost of living crisis and money saving #PoliticalThinking #r4Today

Coming up at 5.30pm on @BBCRadio4 my conversation with a man trusted in ways politicians can only dream of …
As a journalist, and his wife, interviews with @MartinSLewis often leave me frustrated about the questions that weren’t asked, but not this time. Brilliant, compelling, and revealing interview by @bbcnickrobinson here: bbc.co.uk/sounds/brand/p04z2….

Battle lines inside Tory Party now much clearer after Johnson concedes he isn’t going to change - as his critics have always claimed BUT by challenging his enemies to spell out what they would do differently he hopes to expose the deep policy divide between rival Tory factions

Please listen to the whole half hour in which Martin - one of the most trusted figures in public life - is fascinating about who he is & what makes him tick - his upbringing, influences & values. A clip & a headline doesn’t do it/him justice. Political Thinking on @bbcsounds
BBC news story that I was rejected by the House of Lords Appointment Committee to be a crossbench (independent) peer is correct. But please listen to me explain directly it as I do in the video here, bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-6… rather than others interpretation of what happened.

The man whose approval Chancellors crave & whose criticism they fear - Money Savings Expert @MartinSLewis - was rejected by the House of Lords he tells me on Political Thinking. Politics in UK is too confrontational he says. Listen now on @bbcsounds bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-6…
