My money is on them levering Laura Kuenssberg in there as soon as she gets a bit raddled.
I think you're a bit late with the "as soon as" bit.
 
I've worked in BBC newsrooms, and I can tell you they are highly politicised. Nothing against The Agenda will ever see the light of day, and they are in it for the long term.
I'm not sure about that. In the BBC newsroom I'm sitting in at the moment there are at least 5 News Editors, all of whom have individual views combined the capacity to 'influence' the output of their respective programmes.

As a matter what capacity were you working?

Catamite I'd expect.
 
Maybe, but birds of a feather can flock together, or at least know which way their bread is buttered and not rock the boat.
Like Nick Robinson, Andrew Neil, James Harding and Robbie Gibb? A right den of Trots.
 
The second part well applies. Neil is I think freelance and a very good exception.
All four of them are Tories to the bottom of their souls. HTH

And? Out of 2000+ journalists/3000+ staffers at BBC News (alone). Again, this does not devalue what I wrote. Journalist X may be against mass immigration. It doesn't mean that they will dare raise it at the planning meeting, let alone on air.

Career limiting it is. Even if they are already said to be blue.

Nick Robinson was the original Tory Boy. I have no idea about Harding and Gibb.

More even-handed reporting/propaganda from the tax-funded pro-Eu pressure group:

'I am angry and the future scares me'
It seem to be the usual performance from our "national" broadcasting service people who are only too pleased to be able to indicate the leaning toward the European Union with its associated socialism. Having read the whole report it seems there are some we would be well rid of when one considers they are only here for what they can get (for free) before living elsewhere.

It is of interest to note that the cry concerning the young having to shoulder the burden is one where none of them consider their elders voted to try and ensure them a better future.

All the evidence suggests that their economic prospects and ability to work and travel at ease with continental Europe have been stolen from them by their elders, who've enjoyed the benefits of close cooperation with Europe over the past 40 years.

What good is sovereignty when you are on the dole?

I've tried to explain to some of the younger engineers at work who've yet to get on the property ladder that there may be an epic housing price crash post brexit, but they couldn't see the opportunity

My post was about the BBC coverage rather than the arguments as such. I check the BBC news website daily and there is a regular parade of news stories which seem to either omit a counter argument (as in the link I posted) or reduce it to a sentence.
The BBC seems to use 'features' a lot for this sort of story, which makes me wonder whether they are excused from being balanced in such items.

You are obviously not old enough, or that well travelled, to know that there was no problem moving around/working in Europe before the European Union.
