Diana Dekker writes that broadcaster Geoff Robinson asks the “questions he believes listeners would ask” Wrong. He asks the questions that we listeners would ask if we were as fully informed as Mr Robinson is. I am constantly amazed at his ability to eschew the obvious question – the one which is in the listener’s mind – and ask a better one. That is why Geoff Robinson is one of the country’s outstanding journalists.
