TV historian Simon Schama won over the Question Time audience last night with this bizarre tongue lashing he dished out to Rod Liddle.
Schama “What’s really contemptible Rod, is saying emotion should have no part in how we actually respond”
Liddle “I’m interested in outcomes, not in your emotion…”
Schama “Do not presume to lecture me about the inadequacy of an emotional response. Go back to your journalistic hackery about outcomes and turn your suburban face away from the plight of the miserable.”
Who would have thought bashing the “suburban” would play well on the BBC?
