Jonathan Vernon-Smith (JVS) has long been a popular presenter on BBC 3 Counties Radio (Beds, Herts & Bucks). In 2013 I appeared on his show – here (45:35). In the video description there’s a chronology of the piece, and at one stage Caroline Criado-Perez called in to claim she knew of studies showing a causal link between greater gender diversity on boards, and enhanced financial performance. She got the first of her three “Lying Feminist of the Month” awards for the claim, and when asked on the ITV programme This Morning why she got the awards, she did a jazz hands thing, laughed, then said shamelessly, “Because I lied!!!” We have the sequence on our YT channel.
More importantly, JVS has been, to the best of my knowledge, the only BBC presenter prepared to tackle the issue of MGM sympathetically and rationally. In January 2016 I debated in the studio with Dr Simon Hochhauser of Milah UK – here (14:50) and in December 2016 with Rabbi Natan Levy – here (33:38).
I’ve just been invited to contribute to the show again about MGM, from around 10:30. JVS will be taking callers, so I invite you to phone in with your comments.
You can listen to the show online here. Contact details:
