@LottieKellyBro1 @Wilj90264 @DPJHodges BBC coverage of Queen’s diamond jubilee river pageant was atrocious & juvenile. BBC gave up on decent family entertainment a long time ago. There hasn’t been a decent comedy in years. BBC shows repeats incessantly. Indian media had much better, more informative Olympic coverageYvette Henson @YvetteHenson • 27 Feb 20:52 GMT

@DPJHodges Unlikely as that would involve them showing common sense.Ian @iancharris • 27 Feb 20:13 GMT
@LucyNoakes1 @cazMurphy2013 @DPJHodges @treflesg @BBCr4today I can understand why they don't appear. It was getting silly. I agree about accountability but if you jump in/talk over your invited guests then no-one hears an explanation. Newsnight has gone down hill for the same reason.MarianW @Bardlander • 27 Feb 20:11 GMT
@DPJHodges Never mind I expect Corbyns dancing at the Cenotaph or something, so it's all gravy.Bent Banana Republic 🕷️ @76nottory • 27 Feb 20:03 GMT
@DPJHodges What health emergency....how may people have died...?
5 die every day on our roads....how does it compare ?
16 people commit suicide each day...how does it compare
@DPJHodges Another msm Project Fear over hyped subject. Get it into proportion. It's FLU ffs. Remember SARS and Asian Flu?
Hey it's great to bury other news that you don't want to talk about. Like Paki Muslim paedo gang convictions.
@DPJHodges Apart from other considerations should we put more eggs in one basket? If terrorism closed Heathrow what would be impact ? Should more aircraft be concentrated in strictly limited airspace?Do you live close to Heathrow?Lionel George Taylor @leothefirst1 • 27 Feb 19:52 GMT
@ronnytodgers @DPJHodges ....for instance, I read a local discussion board today about the virus, with around 100 people contributing. The clear consensus was that the media was wrong and unhelpful to whip up panic about something that, fundamentally, was just another virus with limited consequences.Proper Democrat @ProperDemocrat • 27 Feb 19:49 GMT
@ian4downton @mvthomas1971 @DPJHodges No one disputes Heathrow exists, it's the doubling-down that is deeply flawed. A new runway, a new terminal, a new 52,000 capacity car park (the largest in Europe) and showering more pollution on 2 million+ people in the most densely populated part of Europe? Daft.Mark Beaumont @markpbeaumont_ • 27 Feb 19:24 GMT
@DPJHodges Why would appearing on the Today programme add any value?
The media's sense of entitlement is pathetic
@DPJHodges No they are not. The Today programme is not the media in general and has an ever dwindling listener base.Andrew @AJWC1967 • 27 Feb 18:51 GMT
@SJJB55 @DPJHodges @BorisJohnson The point isn’t about published advice (which is lame and doesn’t take preventative action) but with national addresses pre his speech yesterday and lack of action to reduce outbreaks.Joe Public - @JOEPUBLIC20171 • 27 Feb 18:42 GMT
@DPJHodges You actually think the Today program matters, we honestly don't. Don't rely on BBC for any information and you couldn't pay me to listen to their news output on radio or TV.Blue Army Faction QC @BlueArmyFaction • 27 Feb 17:55 GMT
@DPJHodges The people who are saying it's not a national health emergency,are the same ones who are in denial of climate change.Red Flipper @Kevinflipper1 • 27 Feb 17:20 GMT
@DPJHodges Rubbish. They should issue statements & get on with their jobs. Since when is appearing on the Today program a ministerial obligation?Soggy Bottom @supernautv • 27 Feb 17:20 GMT
@DPJHodges There isn't a "national health emergency". I expect they'll go on when there is.Robbie_Zino @ZinoRobbie • 27 Feb 17:19 GMT
@DPJHodges I don't think the Government has ever said that. What's your source?Loyalist Lawyer @espionage2017 • 27 Feb 17:08 GMT

@bloggydoc @beigemaster @psflaps @DPJHodges Oh I get thats its a worry for the NHS and its staff because of the strain it will put on the service which is why I think its so important people are sensible about how they report the virus.Max Edwards @maxjedwards • 27 Feb 16:40 GMT

@LefterThanLenin @rinka_dog @RichardBurgon @DPJHodges My carbon footprint is all but non existent. I recycle too, you are not the only one. There is still 30% of carbon emissions to lose and you bragging about flying not causing any problems becomes a big problem.Joy Jones @JoyJoyjones271 • 27 Feb 15:27 GMT
@DPJHodges @DawnannDawn I thought Britain was supposed to have a government that worked to protect the environment and which upheld its own binding commitments to reduce carbon emissions ...
Obviously I must have been mistaken.
@LucyNoakes1 @DPJHodges @treflesg I like questions being asked but I'd also like to hear the answer, too many presenters interrupt, trying to be like Paxman only more so and it becomes a pointless squabbling exercise.Caz Murphy @cazMurphy2013 • 27 Feb 14:35 GMT
@DPJHodges Radio 4 made themselves an untrustworthy news outlet, so it is understandable they can't be trusted to present health information accurately.Never-tweeter @non_tweeter_93 • 27 Feb 14:31 GMT
@DPJHodges Are they though? Really? Or are you just being a muppet? I’d suggest it’s the latter ..Fancy a cuppa, Sue? @WokeyMc • 27 Feb 14:24 GMT
@DPJHodges How would going on that show stop people dying though? Aren’t they better off going to work and doing their actual jobs?paul. @so_paulo • 27 Feb 14:18 GMT
@DPJHodges When the radio 4 news people realise that there’s a difference between an interview and interrogation they get people on.Jean @Jean52601194 • 27 Feb 14:08 GMT
@DPJHodges If there is a health crisis maybe they have more important things to do than make you look good.
Get a grip
@DPJHodges I don’t want government ministers on the radio talking about national problems I want them at their posts dealing with them. This how they show that they really care about what is happening and are doing their best to help.Richard Walton @Richmoonshine • 27 Feb 13:57 GMT
@DPJHodges Members of any government are public servants, paid for out of our taxes. They should not have the right to decide which media outlets they do or don’t speak to, it’s an abuse of their position.John Latham @JohnLatham1960 • 27 Feb 13:56 GMT
@politico_daily @DPJHodges It means they can blame the courts for a decision, and not have to take the flack making an actual definitive choice.
Win/Win as far as they are concerned, and the Honourable Member for Uxbridge doesn’t have to remember about getting in front of bulldozers.
@DiyWest @NormanSufrin @DPJHodges Naaah, not even close to a ‘great Journo’ any more... more whinging and whining, making up lies for headlines like he has tried to do here... who exactly said ‘We don’t care if people die...?’TonyJames🏴 @CymroTabs • 27 Feb 13:37 GMT
