The BBC is to answer critics of its ‘Left-wing bias’ by inviting a radio ‘shock jock’ – known for eviscerating Labour MPs – to present Newsnight.
Nick Ferrari, who was once in the running to be Tory candidate for London Mayor, will front the flagship current affairs programme twice this week.
His interviews on LBC Radio during the General Election included the skewering of Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott on police numbers, and Labour education spokesman Angela Rayner over class sizes.
