WATCH: Paxman v Silvio

Since Paxman announced he’s on the way out, he’s seems to have got that old spark back.

          No sorry Guido I do not think from that interview clip Paxman has regained his touch at all .

          He seemed overawed by the tranquility of the open air setting ( away from the pressure cooker London studio ) and seemed for most of the time to be basking supinely in Berlusconi s non stop albeit impressive verbosity .

          In short the killer questions were lacking :

          a) are you really guilty of tax evasion /fraud ?

          b) did you really rely on mafia support during your time in govt. ?

          c) is it true you cut corners on your way to the top in business by bribing judges and the like ?

          Sorry Jeremy , admittedly Sky will snap you up at four times BBC wages but but you will be descending gracefully into the shoes of Mr Parkinson who currently sells insurance .

A con job par excellence, and not least of which because the European central bank already exists.

      If Greens were sensible they would propose a radical sort of tax incentivised population control. Population control would also mean somehow controlling the overcrowding of the UK.
      A Green Party with an agenda that truly holds out hope for the environment would attract a multitude of voters.
      It is a pretty loony situation, however that a party supposedly in favour of Nature and the Environment is blissfully ignorant of the fact that the very thing they want to protect is being destroyed by a continuous flood of people, which they seem also to want.
