    Best female presenter on TV at the moment. Keep the faith!

    I think Beth is smashing . Ive a Cheshire accent so i dont speal Oxford or Cambridge.
    Miss Rigby speaks with a polished English accent . To say she speaks otherwise is silly. I find her interviews inciteful interesting intelligent. But the constant nuthin endin beggin is off putting. Ive read her witing she uses g there? I find sadly the constant droppin of the g is distractin. If she had an East end accent ok but she has a polished one

      I agree good incisive
      reporting however
      I am listening to Sky News -the female reporter Beth Rigby speaking from Downing Street needs to
      clearly speak with clarity — her annunciation leaves a lot to be desired “Dropping the “G” in the word campaigning ) is a very poor standard from a first class news media organisation

  3. gelert says:

    Shame that Rigby never learnt to speak English properly at Cambridge.

    The letter “g” is foreign to her in words ending in “ing”.

  4. Karen says:

    I’m so glad you’ve noticed the dropping of the “g”. Sadiq Khan does this too. I thought maybe it was where she comes from. It’s so annoying. Can’t someone find out Why?
