Who Wants To Be A BBC Political Correspondent?

Job requirements; a knowledge of Harry Potter:
Rajini Vaidyanathan is a British political reporter for the BBC. Her varied career has included being political correspondent for Radio 1 and Washington correspondent for BBC News . Outside of politics, Rajini has also reported from the red carpet at the Oscars and spoken to young Israelis and Palestinians about the conflict in the Middle East.

Hmm. Harry Potter.
No you're not seeing things, of all the books ever published in the world Harry Potter is the best book that she has ever read.*

*yes I know that there are 7 of them.

  1. Totally chauvanistic no doubt, but one has to wonder whether this moron (or is that moroness) got her job under the old equality & diversity scam?

  2. TBH WfW that thought had crossed my mind too.

    If she was the best person for the job then fair enough - although god knows what the other candidates were like. But her 20 questions doesn't suggest that she has the calibre one would expect of a political journalist.
