The Afternoon Debates: The Andrew Neil Show
I have been watching these, having said that debates between the spokesman might be more interesting. However they have not really come alight – something to do with the format I think. But until this afternoon I was not able to quite put my finger on why the format did not work. Possibly something to do with Andrew Neil feeling some form of divine obligation to berate our politicians.
I could not work out if it was a bit like three naughty kids being dragged into the head’s study and asked to explain themselves before the head exercised his power and humiliated them. Then this afternoon I saw Stephanie Flanders sitting next to Sir Andrew, sorry Andrew. It’s BBC Politics does the Apprentice with Andrew Neil as the great humiliator!
