Jay has also worked on a number of hit BBC radio shows and one of the longest running panelist on Radio Scotland’s Breaking The News – it was a performance this that saw Lafferty hit the front page of The New York Times for her on point description of Theresa May’s catastrophic handling of the Brexit deal.

 

Engages her audience with such playfulness and genuine curiosity we have no choice but to cling to her every word.”
