I would have preferred Paxman doing these interviews rather than Neil. Neil is fine on This Week (when he is on form) but in these interviews, it seems he is weak to me.


Is this a classic case of disliking an interviewer when they're strong against the person you like, and liking them when they're strong against the person you dislike?

No, because I despise both Hunt and Johnson, I treat them with equal contempt, I am unbiased in that.

A considerable lot of appreciation across the media spectrum for these two set piece interviews, dispersed with some obvious sycophantic adulation in the mix too. On balance a worthwhile exercise, albeit without the killer blow to either of the contenders.

With regards to the presentation ... I'm a bit surprised they didn't use a studio at NBH. What was the studio they did use?

The interviews came from the Westminster Live studios on the Albert Embankment - it's where the Andrew Neil interviews were conducted prior to the last general election too. Obviously they chose them for their view of the Houses of Parliament, although as Big Ben is covered up at the moment I do wonder whether there was much point!
