    I never got round to saying how disappointed I was that PM only won "best interactive show".

    I love your interview technique Eddie. Listening to interviews is akin to listening to a very small play unfold that has one very big plot twist half way through.No shouting, just giving them rope and then like an iron fist in a silk glove, POW, they get one, right in the mooey.

    My favourite being the "Cameras with speakers" interview and your letting the woman gleefully relate how effective they were. Once she has finished extolling the virtues of yet more Big Brother invasion, moments silence and: "Should a fat person be shouted at for eating crisps?". Her reaction (against the ropes, you pummelling her politely) was absolutely excellent. I could not stop laughing and it was a pure bonus to hear that... she was fat.

    "No, we shouldn't shout at fat people for eating crisps. I am fat and I would find it abhorrent"

    Eddie continued "yes but obesity, isn't that the single most expensive problem that the NHS has to contend with".

    Brilliant and not at all aggressive. You should have won a much more worthy award.

    Tobias, I agree that the interview with the Respect 'tsar' [czarina ?] Louise Casey was excellent.

    I did write a note to her, but she ignored it...
