On Sunday AM With Andrew Marr

Tomorrow morning at 9am I will be on Andrew Marr's Sunday AM programme reviewing the Sunday newspapers with Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Green Party. Jeremy Irons, Billy Bragg, Alistair Darling and George Osborne are also on the programme.

UPDATE: You can view the programme HERE. My bit was about 10 minutes in.

Sneak one of your books onto the shelf under the telly.

I gather that Alistair Darling is on too.

If you get the chance tell him to keep sharpening up the Labour Party's act - and the knives that continue to be plunged into Gordon's back (and front)!

I'm sure you are up to the job, Iain!

I suspect you'll very much enjoy the story that's (as of 2.30am) rumoured to be on the front of the Sunday Times second edition, Iain.

Would you get in trouble, if you belted the Labour lickspittle? Failing that just refer to him as "Red Andy"?

Try and take the p*ss out of Marr, referring to his 'impartiality' in reporting.... Topics to be 'brushed under the carpet' will be counted as well!

Good performance Iain - well done!

Sort out a decent tie and they may invite you back :-)

I noticed that the chap who was then reading out the weather is called "Chris Fawkes." Is Guido now getting relations onto the programme as well?

Iain, You need to chill. Your sofa appearance made me feel nervous.

:)

Iain

Did you see the report (New York Times) that bloggers

"...under constant pressure to post, are dying and suffering from stress-related illnesses..."

You take care now....

Obviously it would be a pr own goal not to give prescott sympathy, however he deserves none in my opinion.

Like Campbell's depression, I care not for the corrupt bullies when they come begging.

So climate change is causing the erosion of the Norfolk coast? No doubt at all? I like the way the Greens make such statements as if they are facts.

Well done and thanks for being so understanding about Prescott, I know there'll be loads of jokes and I'm his only supporter but you came over really well. On another site I have a new slogan "Vote Labour and Hammer the Poor". What do you think? Catchy?

Iain - you went down very well in our household. And they aren't political junkies like me. You got it exactly right - great mix of charm and sharpness - a great ambassador for the conservatives. Congratulations Mr Dale.

I preferred last night's entertainment!

Why do political programmes always feel the need to have non-political guests? One gets up earlier than one needs to on a Sunday to listen to politicians and political commentators, not Jeremy Irons (admittedly he's playing Macmillan at the NT, but it's a tenuous link).

If I watch Match of the Day I don't get Kylie Minogue appearing halfway through to talk about her new album.

Iain

well done mate, however you should have taken a leaf out of you fellow guest's book and claimed that the erosion of the Norfolk coastline is simply God's punishment for them not voting Tory (which would be about as accurate as Miss Greenie's claim)

Every year you get better and better.

Two pies and Charles Kennedy make for interesting comparison. Both addicts, one shouldn't be allowed to do his job because he was a drunk, the other couldn't do his job even when sober.

Stuart: Funnily enough in Spain they DO have musical interludes in the studio at half time. Once took a band to a back street studio in Barcelona to play two numbers live at half time of the World Hand Ball Cup Final or something like that. They also did Spanish TOTP that trip.

Good stuff from 'Telly's Iain Dale'. I caught you on News 24 too. I can't feel as sorry for Des Browne as you evidently do.
You were certainly better than Caroline Spelman on QT (who mysteriously withdrew from 'Any Questions' I notice).

Why didn't you tell that dim bint that coastal erosion is nothing to do with climate change and has been going on ever since the world was made?

and has moved up and down the East Coast ever since we've had the North Sea. In fact the evidence would seem to suggest that the more man made efforts to stop it have made the situation worse. However why flood land suitable for growing food when people are starving.
