Today's Telegraph reports that David Dimbleby is threatening to leave Question Time because the BBC plans to move its production to Glasgow. This strikes me as odd because it is produced by an independent production company, Mentorn, which is based in Oxford.
Dimbleby, who is 70 later this month, has presented the show since 1994, which is a pretty long stint by anyone's standards. Perhaps it is time for a change of presenter anyway. Jeremy Paxman has, it is rumoured, long coveted the job and he won't be alone. He is the obvious successor, but presumably the BBC will be keen to "reach out" to engage with a yoof audience and hire someone like Konnie Huq. Joke. I hope. Other runners and riders will include Huw Edwards, Jeremy Vine, Nicky Campbell and Andrew Marr.
Anyway, if Dimbleby leaves, who would you like to see given the job. Leave your suggestions in the comments and I will run a poll later.
