May is a very busy woman, she is

Chancellor, and Amber Rudd and Gavin

It's cracking television if
nothing else. Theresa May clearly
got a health crisis, we've see most
damning videos and photographs lying
on hospital and corridor floors.
It's an easy attack by the
opposition, she think she wants to
look at this but she's faced with a
very high-profile presenter with a
very personal and meaningful

death for him if the crisis had
happened now, he may have possibly
not survive. That's a pretty
striking blow to make at the Prime
Minister face to face.

first one is that the vast majority
of the voters don't expect to see
Andrew Marr on Sunday morning with
the interview with the Prime
Minister, which is why it's
interesting it's resonated onto the
front pages. One leads on what the
PM said in the mast beat. I take
your point, but Theresa May does not
have human reaction. You say your
aunt could have died and she stares
at you impassively. The idea she
will erode back...
What is she
supposed to say other than I'm
terribly sorry? -- she will demote
It's a very difficult line for a
Prime Minister to come back on but
showing some sort of empathy might
at some point be helpful as a piece
of advice. She saying she's
listening to the voters, I'm not
sure I've ever heard a politician
say they weren't.
I disagree Tony, I
think someone like Andrew Marr, we
don't realise how high-profile the
likes of them are, you are in
people's living rooms. People were
affected by Andrew Marr suffering as
he did and him going out and say
that there is a very strong personal
statement. I agree with Tony that
she doesn't demote on demand and she
is a bit similar to the Queen in

colleague, friend, China editor
Carrie Gracie, appointed by the BBC,
the first time they had a China
editor in recognition of the
importance of the China story.
Carrie Gracie is fluent in Mandarin.
She says she can't carry on her post
because the pay system is this
territory at the BBC.
It's a big
story, we are sitting on the BBC's
studio talking about is as we
should. She feels she has a strong

possibly win. Those are fighting

less than men. I'm surprised it's
taken until 2018 for the BBC to
realise that and have a review. I'm
not criticising the BBC exclusively
because this is a culture across our
country, across private
corporations, BBC corporations,
across every sector from the law...
It's ingrained, I understand why she
has done this but I think it's also
interesting that the North American
editor is paid more than Jeremie
Boga Middle East editor. So does the
BBC think that the North America is
more important than the Middle East?
