So, what did you make of it? If you missed it and want to see it it will be available HERE for the next 24 hours. Sadly they edited out my "Look we're not going to get very far Jeremy, if you ask the same question over and over again. The difference between you and me Jeremy, is that if you get sued the BBC picks up the bill, if I get sued, I pick up the bill."
I also made the point that just as Newsnight transmits what it believes to be true at the time, so bloggers write what they believe to be true. Sometimes Newsnight gets it wrong, sometimes we get it wrong. I then quoted the David Loyn piece on Onyx [correction: it was David Shukman and Oryx] for which the BBC got sued for a lot of money. At the time of transmission they believed it to be true.
If I'm honest with myself I didn't think I performed as well as I can and the edited out bits detracted from the overall impression. I guess that's why I regret not insisting on doing it live.
UPDATE: There were rumours swirling round the BBC while I was there that Prescott was about to resign. Instead I am told he will be appearing on the Today Programme in the morning.
UPDATE: Between 10pm and 11pm this site had 2600 hits - the previous record for an hour was 1200! Today has been the busiest day on the site ever - by a mile.
UPDATE: A correspondent rightly berates me for not mentioning Guido in the interview. The truth is I did, but it was edited out. It was just before the Tory bit at the end. I said that Guido had no association with the Tory Party and I had heard he used to be a member of the SDP. Must check with him on that one!
