Miriam Gonzalez Durantez to interview Theresa May on Today programme tomorrow

Miriam González Durántez by Cabinet OfficeIt’s great to see Radio 4 continuing with their holiday tradition of having guest editors for the programme.

Tomorrow it’s Miriam Gonzalez Durantez in the hot seat. Miriam has done brilliant work with her Inspiring Women campaign, taking women professionals into schools to talk to girls about their careers. During the election, she campaigned tirelessly for our key seat women candidates.

There is much to love in her line-up for tomorrow. For a start, she’s talking to the amazing Great British Bake Off winner Nadiyah Hussein. What we will need the popcorn for, though, is when she interviews Theresa May. I can’t imagine the Home Secretary getting an easy ride on Europe, immigration and civil liberties. I will probably have a nap when she interviews Manchester City footballer Vincent Kompany, though.

I may even have to set the alarm for 6am and live blog this. Come and join in the fun with me on Twitter.

Oh, and let me just have a go at the BBC for only having two women on in six days. That is simply not good enough.

  • You may be surprised about Vincent Kompany. Seems to have more sense than might be imagined. I agree should be interesting tomorrow.

  • @Madmacs
    Agree – I’m a City fan and Kompany is smart and funny. An interesting choice from Durantez.

  • How about interviewing a flood victim in Appleby-in-Westmorland, York, Leeds….. or a different Greater Mancunian affected by the Irwell instead of some overpaid Premier League ‘Star’ ?

  • @David Raw
    Given that Theresa May is on the same programme, I’m not sure why you have such a beef with Kompany, who is an interesting and decent guy. Some examples of his work you may not know about :-

    Manchester City footballer Vincent Kompany is currently injured and therefore has time for extra community work. Please see the Sunday repeat of Match of the Day on BBC TV to see what footballers do in the community.

  • @Richard Underhill
    There really are lots of people out there much more deserving of your digs than a guy who grew up in a poor immigrant community and – shock – is actually using his good fortune in life to try to improve things for other kids from similar backgrounds. Not only that but he’s actively doing things to improve social cohesion in a part of Europe that desperately needs it.

    At a much lower end of the scale, did you see the Carlisle players out helping clear up flood damage the other week? There is a lot wrong in the world of football, but a lot of good stuff going on as well. Vinny is one of the good guys.
