Caron’s Moonlightings: Jo Swinson MP questions BBC on all male Sports Personality Shortlist

You might recall I wasn’t best pleased yesterday when I’d seen the shortlist for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award because it had not one single woman on it. At the same time as writing it, I fired off an e-mail to Jo Swinson MP. She told me that she and other MPs were planning to take it up with the BBC.

They sent a letter to BBC Director General Mark Thompson earlier today. I wrote up all the details over at Lib Dem Voice. 

By the way, they are going to be slipping me the keys to Liberal Democrat Voice Towers every Wednesday in December. The perfect time of year to steal Mark Pack’s chocolate….. Don’t tell him that’s my plan, though.

I’ve had a couple of days as Guest Editor before – in April I did a Grand Tour of Elections, Referendums and Liberal Democrat Achievements and the previous October we had a day of optimism and hope. So, I want to bring a bit of seasonal warmth and snuggles and fun to the Voice. Do you have any thoughts on what you’d like me to cover in between the devouring of the chocolate?
