Not a fan of this type of journalism, bring back andrew marr who seems to be a more accurate reporter than a shock jock
This type of journalism isn't leagues away from each other - both Mair and Marr were (probably still are in the case of Mair) regulars on Radio 4.
And it's not exactly "shock jock"-ism, he was asking Boris some very awkward questions, that rather predictably, Boris didn't answer, but there's context - which is clearly Boris' aspirations, that - as part of the interview showed - he was actually rather reluctant to discuss.
I actually like journos making politicians squirm. Marr has his own skeletons, since at least for a while, he could well have been subject to being a sideline to the news himself (I'm not
talking about recent health issues).
