This morning’s ding-ding on the Today program was miles apart from your usual stuffy debate. Ian Hislop tore a chunk from Andrew Marr over his 2008 love child super-injunction
“As a leading BBC interviewer who’s asking politicians about failures in judgment, failures in their private lives, inconsistencies, it was pretty rank of him to have an injunction when acting as an active journalist.”
Just to think, Marr could have spared all that time, money and not to forget damage done to his reputation, if he and Alice Miles’s child had just done the DNA test in the first place. Marr says that injunctions are out of control these days, yet it seems they were fine when he needed one.
