8.30pm World View: Energy security

Great, except, why are you wasting your time with a nobody like Mike Read?

No old Etonians making up an education policy?
What a bloody shambles.
Gutless Eton Trifle.

Every single policy that Cameron advances falls apart within a few days.
It is either a lack of intellect,judgement or balls.
Or all three.
Whichever,I suspect Brown will rip him apart.
It John Moore all over again.

Last night was hugely enjoyable Iain. Great stuff.

10pm slot sounds interesting - might pay a visit to the website then. But Mike Read?

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown failing to read Nick Cohen's book was a truly stunning example of arrogance.

Bravo.

The John Nott interview was very enjoyable - but half on hour was too short!

Agree with 8:15pm Anon. Alibhai-Brown can huff and puff all she likes, and she may even make a few good points... but she never read his book. Arrogant? Perhaps, but failing to read the book - or at least some of it, which she seems not to have done either - was surely a basic error & disrespectful to Cohen.

Mike Read AND Yasmin. Oh you do spoil us.... Alas! my toenails need clipping.

dundada, there is a further half hour interview with John Notton wider defence issues in the BROUGHT TO BOOK channel. Or just search for Nott and you will find it.

Thank you.

This is just common sense. You're putting people off watching.

Mike Read is too honest to be Mayor of London.

What's Archer doing then? That would solve that problem.

why did neither of you read Cohens book before inviting him on to "defend" it?

Makes a change for Mike Read to turn up. How many time was it announced before the great man could grace us with his presence?

Of course, I expected another no show and missed him. I suppose I could always did him up out of the archives. There again, perhaps he should be left to rest in peace...

Congratulations Iain on hosting a good night's viewing. Mike Reid was entertaining, but no candidate for my mind. Your gossipy gaggle of journos and Lynn were a good mix of people that you would never find on mainstream media. In fact it was a bit like overhearing a dinner party conversation. Well done 18DS.
