Incredible. No wonder no one knows what is happening in the politics world if this is the level of understanding.

I doubt knowing that Foster is a Tory (or not) determines any political knowledge, what makes you think he isn't?

I've listened to him speak. I think knowing what sort of political leaning someone has from the words they use and things they say suggests that one is more likely to know what is going on in the political world. Without that prior knowledge of politics one wouldn't have a clue as to which party/political wing they might float towards.

I've also listened to (and understood) him speak, Tory - 100%.

 

He's also made his remain credentials totally obvious whilst maintaining the pretence of being impartial.

Hats off to Toby Foster for putting our p***poor, conniving, lying council under the spotlight re Chinese investment, trees etc. These people are seriously operating from a shallow talent pool.  Mazher Iqbal appeared to think that simply trotting out half baked, poorly articulated rhetoric was enough to palm off the listeners of Radio Sheffield, perhaps he’s right, perhaps he feels that integrity, ability and accountability are wasted on the people of this city.

I only caught the last couple of minutes but  Mazher Iqbal (cabinet member for business and investment) was really struggling. He didnt come across well at all.  Hats off to him for allowing himself to be thrown to the dogs though. It really should have been the council leader Julie Dore that took that interview. No surprise she didnt though.

Julie Dore is utterly incapable of handling a pressure interview, have you heard her. Sheffield Council won’t allow her near a microphone!

Yea I've heard Toby giving her a grilling before. She gets really mardy and becomes quite incoherent! If they wont let her do an interview maybe the chief exec should show his face.

Sadly she IS Sheffield Council especially while they operate the "strong leader" model, so rightly so she doesn't allow herself to be interviewed. There's a bloke on Twitter who only ever refers to her as "The Dinner Lady" so I don't think he thinks she's particularly capable.

Who's in charge of appointing the presenters on radio Sheffield?, the one standing in for Toby seems to be ok, but her voice is terrible for radio, sounds like she's permanently full of cold. Hope RS isn't going down the road of 5 live etc where women presenters have to have a husky voices,

You mean Becky Measures? I think she's doing a good job, lots of enthusiasm and engaging.
