Pricks on the Today Programme

A very strange moment on the Today programme this morning. Having got to bed at 4am after my journey back from North Yorkshire I was still in bed, but I'm told there was a discussion about dog names, and one of the guests was Lucinda Lambton. It appears that she was heard shouting "My prick, my prick" in the background. Rumours that Jim Naughtie was emulating Jonathan Ross's interviewing style were hotly denied by the Today production team. Amazing what a glass of cooking sherry before breakfast can do.

Lucinda Lampton is insane, she lives with some Bloke who used to model for the Boden catalogue who despite having been taken from behind by george melly at school now likes to write about why he finds homosexuality distasteful.

Despite an unhealthy fascination with Victorian lavatories and being mad as a sack of weasels, I think Lucinda Lampton is a true English eccentric and rather amusing.

As for the schoolboy antics with Mr Melly, surely that is and was all behind him.

Despite?!

Actually, Melly is quite amusing, although you probably wouldn't to be honest.

Jesus Christ, even you've got to admit that is a stunning result for the Lib Dems in Bromley

Talking of pricks on the Today Programme, Hazel Blears talking in her usual cliched drivel ought to be given a full airing: "issues" "reach out" "engage" "get on with the job" "renewal" "vibrant" Glad too am I that the Labour vote in Blaenau is, "going in the right way".
