Well, I thought it was quite the best bit (all seven or eight minutes) of 'The Politics Show' - technically, I mean. Good photography, and nicely put together. The cut and thrust of debate was a bit blunted by my slow speech, but the producer succeeded in pulling out salient points, and making the pictures speak a thousand words. If you want to watch just the bit with Debbie and me, and Jane and Omar, you can find it on : http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00l98w6/The_Politics_Show_London_21_06_2009/ , and then fast forward to 25 minutes in. I'm told Jane and I made a photogenic pair!
The beginning of the show was sad, with the news of the death of two of the Baghdad hostages. We had been hoping for good news. Death is always tragic.
