On The Record
Posted Friday, 20 July 2007 at 16:28

I had to come into London today to film a discussion with Diane Abbott MP for ‘On The Record’, which goes out at various times on BBC Parliament tonight and over the weekend.

The discussion was about the statement made by Harriet Harman in the Chamber earlier this week.

Diane, as is her customary trademark, was dressed all in Black, I wore cream. I immediately thought of the box of chocolates, ‘Contrast’, as I sat down.

Melissa, the presenter, introduced us as "two of the most formidable women in Parliament." I looked behind me, was someone else in the studio? Was she talking about me? I am definitely a soft centre compared to Diane.

However, I think I did OK!

I am slightly concerned about ‘Any Questions’ next Friday though. Give me Diane Abbott fifty times over to Charles Moore, Peter Tatchell, Jonathan Dimbleby and heaven knows who the rest of the panel are going to be! 

On Monday I am going to blog about young carers, with a fantastic photo of the group who came with us to Woburn Safari Park.

So, speaking chocolatey, Miss Abbott was a KINDER Surprise than the one you are expecting on Any Questions with such a GALAXY of STARs lineup.It went like a DREAM so I bet you were in HEAVEN. Will it be shown AFTER EIGHT? Any Questions won't be a PICNIC, but when it comes to the CRUNCHie, if you don't act like a FRUIT AND NUT or FLAKE out, you'll be entitled to some CELEBRATIONS afterwards:-)

Sweeper's obviously a connoisseur of the chocs. I, of course, wouldn't recognise any of those capitalised names. None of them ever pass my lips... ;-)
