Chooses the Andrew Marr show to talk tomorrow.Guaranteed another soft interview where he can override Andrew the weak who is just as likely to give him free reign to make another party political broadcast.

In fairness to Brown I thought he came across much better this morning. Someone has clearly told him to lay off the stupid class war approach and this was one of his better interviews. Ironically this was what I expected when he took pver from Blair and is probablyy the first time I could cosnider him to be acceptable.............? Whatever next ?

Is that an interview where the politician doesnt get insulted?

You could be spot on with that comment sub,unfortunately. Despite my scepticism he did come across much better than normal.

Marr might be a nice chap but he has no in-depth economical knowledge that would enable him to call Brown to task over some of the drivel Brown speaks. Marr couldn't grill a thin slice of Spam.
And I rather think that Marr (and his wife) have a lefty background .
I doubt he'd bare his teeth at a nuLabour politician even if he had the nous (which I doubt).
Next week with Cameron, he'll peddle the old questions about Lord Ashcroft. The fact that, after 12 years of Brown in control of the finances we're up sh+t creek will somehow escape him. (As it did today.)

I see, then you think that the object is to make the politician as uncomfortable as possible.

What does that achieve please?

Come now Dr C - what a question.
Here we have the (unelected) Prime Minister who before that was Chancellor since 1997. He's overseen the nations' economic collapse (remember his "UK best placed to come through the recession?) .
Remember "Prudent"; the 10p tax rate abolition farce; the gold selling faux-pas?
On the economy alone he needs to be brought to book to answer for his failure. (Remember the "no return to boom & bust" quotes?).
Who changed the regulatory system and when that failed to see the credit/borrowing risk blamed everyone but himself (especially the yanks)?
The guy who said in a speech at the Mansion House in 2002 when he was Chancellor:-

p.s. I'm no great fan of David Cameron - and, (in my naive youth) was a Labour Party member. But I seriously think that Gordon Brown has a mental health problem.
Seriously - I;m not just**ging off the guy 'cos he's trashed our economy; society. I find it hard to believe that he's sane.

So youre not interested in the questions or the answers in an interview, you just want to see the politician getting a good grilling as you call it? Depending on your opinion of the politician of course.

Is that true or not?
Report madsimon January 3, 2010 7:34 PM GMT
answers lol -Dr Cripen be honest when was the last time Brown or indedd any Labour politician answered a 'difficult ' question truthfully or even sraightforwardly.
Report madsimon January 3, 2010 7:36 PM GMT
politicians get a 'communications allowance' to spout the party line or say how good they are . when interviewed of course they shoudl be 'grilled' -Its not North Korea FFS (yet)

Dr C - how difficult is this to take in?
I want ALL politicians to get a grilling.
Why should Brown be exempt?
Are you so naive as to think that every interview should allow a politician - of whatever party - to make assertions unquestioned?
Ecky thump - I could just imagine you as a judge at the Nueremburg trials - you'd have let every bugg+r off scot-free.

You have answered that question nicely thank you.
Report thewhitedog January 3, 2010 7:46 PM GMT
So DrC, when a politician appears on a ahow such as Marr or Question Time, he shouldn't be asked any awkward questions. Is that what you're suggesting?
Even a primary school nappy-wetter can see that that's daft. Do you SERIOUSLY uphold that view?
Should Cameron get a soft interview next week?

Well that's a long way from '' get a grilling''

We all know what you meant by that.
Report thewhitedog January 3, 2010 7:56 PM GMT
Okay Dr C (jeez- what does it take to get you to give a direct answer to a question)
Shouldn't Cameron get a grilling?
Would getting a grilling somehow breach his human rights?
Why shouldn't MP's get a grilling? Answer that as well? (And don't just respond "what would that acheive" .)
Report Dr Crippen January 3, 2010 7:59 PM GMT
Ive no problem with any question that the interviewer puts about the topic.
Thats got nothing to do with hostility and downright rudeness from the interviewer which you appear to support, when did that ever get an answer worth hearing?

By the way a lot of people might be interested in the answers they hear from the politicians, and what the interviewer can get out of them.
Theyre not interested in just watching a televised row.

No I'm not interested in seeing any politician ''getting a grilling''

Saw the Marr interview, Brown proved he will lie through his teeth to cling to power.
