Pine nuts

That tinker Peter Fincham has actually snaffled Robert Peston, with the offer of a Sunday morning show on top of the job of Political Editor ITV News.  Now he has to find something to drop from the current schedule to make space. This morning's proud offering was a repeat of Murder She Wrote, and three back to back repeats of the Jeremy Kyle Show. I hope Pesto got some assurances of a programme budget against that big-spending line-up.

Now James Harding should afford Runaway Robert the briefest possible period to collect his haid-dryer and back-comb from New Broadcasting House before gardening leave.

Then, I trust the BBC Westminster crew will greet his appearance on the lobby cabranks with the appropriate level of helpfulness and camaraderie to a former colleague, whatever that might be, eh, Kuenssberg, Landale et al ?  Sotto voce chanting of Lynam, Chiles, Bleakley, Trinny and Susannah, and Kilroy-Silk might be fun.
