I can usually put up with SK without too much trouble but she has really bugged me this week. I'm sure she is getting more right wing by the day.

I don't listen at all but I bet she's been waffling on about the Gee-Gees and Glorious Goodwood this week!

Lots of us DO listen and are quite happy with Sarah's show.

Are you sure it isn't you slipping leftwards? Wink

Maybe Sarah Kennedy realises her days may be numbered/her contract is not going to be re-newed.

When I have ever listened she is very keen to spout her right wing views at the slightest chance.

I agree. It's quite disturbing really. On the (very) rare occasions that I have listened, I've noticed that she manages to slip in subtle references to certain people in the political spotlight - and she does so in a way that gives every hint that she, personally, does not approve of the person's position or philosophies. This used to come out very clearly in the way in which she conducted her laughable "newspaper review" each morning - she'd brush aside a story about, let's say, a paedophile or something poltically controversial by simply saying "Well, you know my thoughts on that so we'll just skip it and move onto something else". It's not acceptable.

I have a feeling that she's been "spoken to" by her senior manager on more than one occasion, and that's probably why she's reported as behaving herself lately, but in my view there's no doubt whatever which side of the political fence she sits on and it's totally unacceptable that she's allowed to continue in this way.

And I don't give a monkey's chuff about her flipping cats, either. I have no time for cats!!

OK, put it like this - she's definitely not left wing. And she's a bit to the right of "centre". That should narrow down the field just a tad! Cool

Being on an early shift these days, I seldom hear Sarah Kennedy. I have no axes to grind about her but I can certainly see where those that think she's a right winger are coming from. I would have been very interested to hear what she had to say about this creature swearing live on air, if indeed she mentioned it: http://www.pictogame.com/en/play/game/YrzKQDdHkr7w_dangerous-dave

Its frightening, she doesn't seem so bad now compared to some of the newer arrivals! Can't claim to be a fan though.

That sums it up for me, too.
