I hate this kinda thing cause if they are mean to him they look like such dicks and if they're nice to him the bbc looks too cosy with the government.
He is nervous.
HOW DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?
HOW ON EARTH DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?
cut 28000.....because the tories say that cuts can be made in efficiency in management......that sounds like cutting front line services......I want to know how he intends to stop the police from cutting front line services and instead making the savins thru management efficiency........ditto the NHS
some of you are all in it together, but me and my finance freinds arn't
The split second of pure awkwardness.
I now love that Matt whatsisname guy.
CLEARLY deliberate as well. I can see that the BBC would want to play down the connotations of the question, but I'm surprised that this doesn't seem to have been picked up on by the papers.
I'm guessing journalists don't number amongst the literally tens of viewers it must get.
maybe they'd fallen asleep.
It was a pretty heroic bit of confidence to say it in such a cheery way. He's our equivalent of Kanye West after Hurricane Katrina but not really that similar.
I watch a recording of that evening's One Show!
but it's one of the most massively successful early evening BBC shows ever. I like it when I get to see it, there's always someone pretending to be some sort of bird, or asking insanely famous people odd questions about insects or council tax.
I turned it off and decided it must be utter bollocks.
He is amazing and I wish he was my uncle.
but I'll tolerate him on Just a Minute.
I tried to watch a bit of it last night. It was painful, possibly worse than BBC Breakfast, though that would be hard.
Alex Jones' gasp after he asked it was amazing.
Although obviously Cameron should have answered with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRNOjFl4bC0&t=0m42s
Like a baby. Every hour, on the hour, I wake up crying.
should've said 'I shit myself'
unless he stole the joke from someone.
He's a legend.
But they do have a piece about this now.
They've already said goodbye, credits are beginning to roll and he springs something like that on him. A rhetorical question that can't be responded to.
It's totally unprofessional for a 'journalist'. It doesn't mean anything other than "I think you're a tosser". He's not employed to do that. He's employed to act as a communicator between politicians and the public - not to insult one on behalf of the other.
I can't imagine the BBC are too happy about it. You'd think now more than ever they'd be wise enough to realise they want to be as on-side with the Tories as possible.
As it happens, Cameron reacts brilliantly. His ability to think on his feet when some Blue Peter nobody tries to embarrass him nationally is admirable. Thumbs up for Dave, down for the Beeb.
Because that will make a real difference to how the Tories treat them.
he doesn't react that well - he stumbles quite a bit before he manages to get an answer out
He is much better than you.
