Adam Boulton and Andrew Wilson are at the G8 Summit, and have been live through the day, with Andrew on package.
Alastair Bruce was in the studio commentating on Reagan’s journey from California to Washington, so I presume he will be a feature of Sky’s coverage. BBC have a special programme tonight on BBC and News 24 as Reagan’s coffin arrives in Washington.
Well actually. The G8 is a meeting of the leaders of the wealthiest 8 democratic countries in the world. It isn’t a purely political story by any stretchof the imagination.
The reason why Boulton is there is because, quite simply, Blair is there.
Eagleeye makes a good point Andrew Wilson is a good correspondent and could no doubt do a sterling job of covering this event without Adam Bultons presence. On the other hand Adam Boulton is one of Sky News’ biggest assets and an expert on Blair and his government, so quite rightly should be there.
What a shame. Andrew is always great when let loose on ‘Great American Icons’ (maybe that’s why they gave it to Ian Woods!!??). He talks TGV and has a great way of cutting through the cr*p and making you smile. Nothing against Woodsy, but Mr Wilson does have a way with words. Doesn’t say anything in 10 that he could say in a million.
