Last night I spoke at a dinner for Reading Conservatives, and a very pleasant evening it was too. One thing they were keen to point me to is the Youtube clip below of the newly selected Labour Candidate for Reading West, Naz Sarkar, being interviewed on Radio Berkshire's Andrew Peach. It is a classic example of how now to give an interview. By the end of it, Peach was treating him with open contempt and sniggering at the pathetic nature of his answers. If ever someone was in need of media training, it is the man who wants to succeed Martin Salter. His Tory rival Alok Sharma is a very lucky man to have such an incompetent fool as his opponent.
UPDATE:A reader helpfully emails an article from the Waltham Forest Guardian which gives further examples of haplessness from Mr Sarkar. If he was selected, it makes you wonder what the other candidates on Labour's shortlist were like.
