I'm surprised Adam Boulton didn't slap Diane Abbott during his programme this morning. She had a case of verbal diarrhoea and would hardly let his other guest, Rachel Johnson, get a word in edgeways. Diane reckons "Boris is an accident waiting to happen". Well thanks for that remarkable political insight Diane. Still, it got you quoted on the BBC News website.
Why anyone takes this woman seriously is beyond me. She may carp at Boris but she's so unpopular among her own colleagues and so administratively wanting that her own party has never considered her competent enough to be Parliamentary Under Secretary for Paperclips. Can't think why.
Isn't it time to pension her and Portillo off, and find two new guests to sit beside Andrew Neil each Thursday? How about Alan Milburn and Nadine Dorries? Actually, it would be better IMHO to have a panel of a dozen or so and change the guests each week. But what do I know?!
