BBC News – Newsnight – Repeating the question: Hague gets Paxman grilling

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/8080379.stm

Frannyy posts two clips of Jeremy Paxman grilling waffling and evasive politicians in a manner, known to viewers of today’s pap and piffle “news”, as Old School.

Watching them led me to two realisations:

1) While I recognise Jeremy Paxman’s name and legacy, before today I wouldn’t have been able to pick him out of a police lineup.

2) The civilized tone of debate between stuffy “Eeenglish types”* is something I can no longer take seriously. Thank you, Chris Morris, for making me expect Peter O’Hanra-Hanrahan-like admissions of questionable behaviour.

* Recently rewatched the French Taunter, can you tell?
