WHATEVER your politics, this exchange off the telly from last night will surely raise a smile? If only for the giant sigh by Jeremy Paxman halfway through and the most desperate of mumbles. You can just about make out the words: ‘Oh God’.
Of course, current affairs programmes like Newsnight shouldn’t be reduced to two men quarreling over what chart they are or are not looking at, or a smug retort like: I think you’ll find London is in England. But let’s not get too pompous… take the phone off the hook, sit back and watch the horns lock tight. In the valleys, Dr Eur.. (his name’s on the caption) will be a hero for this.
