Poll: Who should replace Paxman at Newsnight?
01 May 2014 02:40 PM
The news that Jeremy Paxman is to leave Newsnight after 25-years of grilling a long list of terrified politicians and celebrities hasn't exactly come as a shock. As Simon Kelner writes in today's Voices, it's been clear for a while that Paxo's heart hasn't been in it.
But it's still big news, especially for anyone suspicious of the politicians he did so well at lambasting. The Westminster crowd will no doubt be breathing a sigh of relief today, which can only be a bad thing.
