Shami Chakrabarti is everything Rod Liddle despises. Female, intelligent, non-white, tolerant, compassionate and left-wing. That's probably why I like her so much. Other than John McDonnell, she's Corbyn's closest ally. #bbcqt
journalism in the UK routinely rewards people like Rod Liddle with columns, top jobs, etc. meanwhile an entire generation of new reporters are largely on the outskirts, underpaid and undervalued, in a fickle industry that needs massive overhaul. thanks for coming to my ted talk.
