Tonight I am talking to Emily Nomates. Anchor, investigator, editor and producer of GuyNEWS…an ‘anarcho feminist with a tweed jacket to die for’ … and she also blogs as Emily Investigates.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Emily Nomates when I appeared on GuyNews looking like King Lear with a barrister’s wig on… doing a small cameo as the ‘most expert judge in the world’… I enjoyed it… went to my head it did… sentencing all those MPs to 10 years and wondering if I could deport them. A pleasure tonight… to ask the questions!

We talk about GuyNews, Emily interviewing Lord Pearson of UKIP in a Burqa (Emily wore the Burqa), Basil Grayling recanting and we even manage to shoehorn in some sensible stuff on hung parliaments and the future.  British Telecom managed to cut us off five times during the podcast which I recorded on Skype – simply because they don’t seem to provide a stable service where I live right on the waterfront in Battersea…very close to the scene of the BIG IDEA TORY MANIFESTO launch the other day.  Even though I vote Labour… I can’t blame the Tories for losing my BRITISH TELECOM internet connection five times.  Emily was very patient and while I never edit podcasts on principle I did have to patch five separate recordings together.  I can promise you that nothing was cut out.  I enjoyed talking with Emily… I hope you will enjoy listening.

Tonight I am talking to Tom Williams, who although too young to vote in the coming election,  is clearly interested in politics judging by his prolific output of tweets on twitter.

Tom describes himself thus on his twitter profile…”16 y/o Labour activist in NW, college student, prospective barrister, not quite sure yet precisely where I stand politically – I don’t like labels…”

Paul Waugh reports “The BBC have just been told that David Cameron will NOT be going head-to-head with Jeremy Paxman on Monday.”

I watched the Paxo interview with Clegg.  It was good and I thought Clegg did quite well.  Brown is, apparently, quite happy to face Paxo on 26 April.

The Leader Debates are on tomorrow.  I think I’d rather watch a Paxo interview with the leaders.
