The relevant episode is here - or, at least, it is at time of posting. Probably won’t stay there forever…
Not an April Fool - I really am going to Stevenage tonight to swap quips with the Home Secretary. Or, if it is an April Fool, then I haven’t discovered that yet. I’m reading the papers this morning like maths text books before an exam (“Blimey I hope that doesn’t come up… or that… or, bloody hell, that…”)
It’s possible that I’m about to make car crash TV: I might well do a ‘Vorderman on Question Time’, a ‘Madeley’s Ali G’, or even a Fleetwood & Fox. Cross your fingers for me if there are a lot of detailed, intricate questions about economic policy or the precise workings of a coalition government.
I wasn’t going to post about it, because I didn’t necessarily want to point anyone in the direction of what might well be an enormous personal disaster. But I thought there was a possibility that viewers who watched it anyway, and had never been to this site before, might want to come on and argue with any opinions I manage clumsily to express, and be a bit baffled if they found themselves obliged to post on a thread about the quality of chips in the Vic. So I’m making a new one just in case.
But I might not express any opinions anyway. My mum’s already phoned to say, “Darling you’re not going to be all political, are you? Nobody wants that. Do just try to be charming.”
*sigh* She’s probably right.
