It makes no difference to me as I sleep through Newsnight

COMMENT: University has to prove it offers value for money

Have your say

I was quite surprised to read that Evan Davis has been moved from the Today programme on Radio Four to become the main man on Newsnight.

He strikes me as a little bit too wishy-washy to take on the role filled by Jeremy Paxman for so many years.

But maybe that’s because I always flick the channel when he appears on Dragon’s Den, smiling genially and filling time with what amounts to repetitive drivel.

Here’s a man who looks like he is on the cusp of everything and not actually in the centre of the action.

But then, what difference does it make to me, as quite frankly I sleep through Newsnight every time it’s on anyway.

A new presenter to replace Paxo is not going to change that.
