Here I am looking like a fat, angry berk on Newsnight. Paxman seemed agreeable enough.

The story behind this one was kind of unusual. I stopped doing TV interviews a few years earlier as they weren't a huge amount of fun and invariably you wouldn't get a fair shake. The exception had always been Newsnight. I got a call from one of the producers of the show who's a genuinely good bloke earlier in the day asking if I wouldn't mind going to London to do the show. I wasn't initially over the moon if I'm honest. They offered to fly me, not too thrilled. Train, not too thrilled. In the end I agreed and they sent me to London in a taxi. That's right, the license feed paid for me to travel in a mini-cab all the way to London. The amount on the meter had me chuckling.

Anyway, I think I was supposed to be the pro-beheading bloke on this one. Shame I'm a)Not pro-beheading and b) too awkward to play to type probably didn't help.

Share the joy
