Marr & Livingstone - a Leftie Love-in

I've just watched Andrew Marr interview Ken Livingstone in what was probably the softest interview of a politician in living memory. Marr asked rhetorical questions, gave Livingstone his out before he even had to answer and behaved like he was having a chat with a good friend he had no intention of upsetting. At one point the former (?) red was asked if he would tax 4x4's, Porsche's and other cars of their ilk off the road and he replied, "absolutely". He then went onto contradict himself, realising that this was a completely stupid answer saying people should buy the greenest model of their preferred car. Once a Leftie always a Leftie and Marr's no better. It really has got to the point that AM's Sunday programme has become a joke.

That's why Paxman makes such good viewing.
