Little 'banter' in backwater quips about Newsnight's Evan Davies

It is with disappointment that I write in response to reading Robert McNeil's comments (July 24) about the recent selection of Evan Davis as a replacement after the retirement of Jeremy Paxman from BBC2's Newsnight.

Northern Ireland already has a reputation in political circles as being the provincial out of step backwater of the UK and articles like this, albeit supposed banter, do nothing to make anyone regard us as anything else.
