I’ve always been a fan of Julia Hartley Brewer, the English broadcaster and columnist. My appreciation of her only increased after she interviewed me for her LBC radio programme in March 2013, just a month after the launch of J4MB – here. It remains my favourite media interview, although I was speaking into my mobile phone, not the easiest way to be interviewed.
Her outstanding contribution to a Question Time discussion on the Ched Evans rape case is here.
My thanks to Sean for spotting an article in yesterday’s Independent which we’re surprised to see in that relentlessly feminist-friendly paper – here. It was written by Julia Hartley Brewer, and in it she calls for Alison Saunders to be sacked. On Channel 4 News last night, at the end of a six-minute-long tortuous interview with Jon Snow, she made it clear she has no intention of resigning. Well, if your pay package (including pension contributions) last year was over £600,000, would you resign? No, Saunders must be sacked.
The sooner, the better.
