No wonder Brown is scared shxxless of being interviewed by Paxman!

Has anyone noticed that all Labour politicians when answering a difficult question start off with the words..."Look"

Brown, Darling et al must think it is a way of acheiving some sort of moral superiority...Pillocks!

GB usually replies with "h h hold on, h h hold on"

I liked his car crash tv about the car parked up inside the Labour conference and asking whether it was a good use of Council Tax Payers money. The generic response from the lady was beyond belief. If you can watch that bit as well as "this nonsense" with Fiona Phillips doing something or other at the conference lectern, it's well worth it.

I often think Poxman takes an unintelligent line in his interviewing, but undoubtedly good at applying the blowtorch to the cretinous pollies.

Last night he was spot on. Milliband looked like the pathetic amateur he is.

Yeah, I would like to see Brown interviewed by Paxman but he's too scared. Watched Andrew Marr interviewing him on Sunday and he got off the hook far too easily. In fact he basically took over and used it as a Party Political Broadcast!

Oh, thank the Lord that grates on someone else aswell as me. I HATE IT!!! Every single member of the cabinet does it, they've either been told to or they're all a bit weird & are subliminally copying their inglorious leader. The number of times I've screamed at the TV, "DON'T 'LOOK' ME!!"

That annoyed me... not only the politicising of council departments; but the vacuous, management speak comments about why she was there... there was no coherent arguments, just words. Why do we pay these people?

I haven't watched Newsnight for ages, but Paxo was good, at his sarcastic best in the Millibland interview and the general conference stuff.

The funniest thing last night was ITV News relegating the Brown conference speech to the no. 2 item. (Nick Bradbury has no time for Brown - contrast with Robinson on the Beeb.)

It's all a game -to get you to watch it. Paxman does not challenge the system in any fundamental way. Often his apparently tough questioning is repeated demands to answer some stupid little point about soap-opera politics. Question Time is the same.

Just an amateur psychologist me, but I'd say this is a way to try and put one's opponent on the back foot. When saying "look", what you are saying is "be quiet and listen up, you're not understanding this and I'm going to explain it as easily as I can". They're implying that you're not intelligent enough to grasp their concept - anyone with doubts of their own convictions will hold back, afraid that perhaps they are wrong, perhaps they *are* missing the point.

Agreed. He's not blindingly clever with words or process of thought - he's just as belligerent as the politicians are themselves.

Let Ian Hislop or Clive James at 'em! Those are disarmingly intelligent men!

Edit: Rogue apostrophe!

Yeh, Ian Hislop was great on Question Time. Has he been on more than once?

Yes he has been on a few times. As always very good when he appears. The best one to let loose on any Labourite is David Starkey - he goes of his tits at them, absolutely hates them with a passion only seen on HPC!

I like Andrew Nei,l when he is sharp and incisive he is brilliant, but when he tries to be funny, oh gawd!

When previously interviewed by Paxo about hitting our 80% reduction in CO2 targets by dragging our standard of living down to a third world level, Miliband simply responded by holding his hand to his chest and saying "Look.... I'm in the persuasion business", which is a line straight out of Mad Men.

He looked like a con man or double glazing salesman.

He's a worthless diddy who would take a kicking in any other job, but he fits in well with NuLabour.

A party full of tits. I wish a tsunami would hit Westminster and wash away the filth. :rolleyes:

Quite, only in the Labour party would the following line land you a cabinet job :-

"My daddy was a champagne socialist and Marxist historian and me and my brother flipped homes no end and set up trusts to avoid inheritance tax. I'm in the persuasion business, I once visited a poor area, they all stank."

The frightening thing is before the next decade is out there will be rolling power cuts because of the decisions (not) made by this pr1ck.

unbelievably awful (no no no jeremy let me finish); interupting his own answers by anticipating (no let me finish) an interuption from (let me finish) Paxman.

JP was practiaclly laughing at him at the end.

Paxo : "What about the House of Lords?"

Sillyband : "What about it?"

Paxo: "You've had 12 years to reform the House of Lords"

Sillyband: "We haven't finished it. That's why we need to stay in government"

:blink:

God, me too. I have even started carefully monitoring my own speech to try to avoid anything like what these muppets spout. (lots of off the cuff talking to groups of strangers in my job). Have a bit of sympathy for the inevitable 'the thing is', 'basically', etc. They're too ingrained now to get rid off. But it does amaze me that these people, who are 'basically' professional speakers, don't do a better job of it.

Starkey this week I believe, Hislop next and Hague and Griffin a couple of weeks after.

Not sure even Beeb bias will help Liebour much against that opposition............ :lol:

Griffin on the 22nd Oct. If he actually gets on air (the unions may kill the programme) sparks will fly - he pulls no punches. Labour have put up Jack Straw to go against him. Major popcorn evening.
