Kate Vs Philip – A News24 drama

After 37 years at the BBC Philip Hayton has quit over ‘differences’ between him and the Lovely Kate Silverton, with whom despite being my vote for rear of and spectacle wearer of the year, he had ‘incompatibility’ issues. Yikes! Personally I think she did a grand job standing in for Kaplinski on Breakfast when she was off on her honeymoon.

Look at this picture off the wire though… It’s annotation reads: Handout photo of news-reader Philip Hayton and file PA photo of colleague Kate Silverton dated 20/09/1987 and 28/04/2005 respectively. 1987! Could whoever put this together not of found a better image of the man?! Nearly a decade old and black and white no less. Contrast that with ‘Our Kate’ at some charity awards do looking ravishing and every bit the modern woman. Ahh the joys of office politics coupled with the lies of picture editing…

    You’re right, that should read ‘nearly TWO decades old’… maths was never my strong point.
