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.

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.
