NEW: Daily & Sunday Politics plus PMQs

Guido has posted the video of Andrew Neil's interview with Ben Shapiro. Neil is normally regarded as balanced and impartial. Shapiro accused him of being far left with a leftist agenda before calling time on the interview. Shapiro came across as very angry and possibly a bit paranoid. Isabel thought he could have saved himself a disaster of an interview by researching who his interviewer (Andrew Neil) was. Comments under the Guido post vary with opposing views on who "the mask fell from", whether Neil is "fair minded" (as he generally is) or a "leftist" (certainly not).

Ben Shapiro says BBC host destroyed him, apologizes: ‘Broke my own rule... wasn't properly prepared’ | Fox News
One thing you must do if going in front of Brillo is do a bit of prep beforehand. Off the cuff just won’t cut it with a canny presenter like him.

Another one, worth listening to . . .

" . . . Dewberry stood as an independent pro-Brexit candidate in the 8 June 2017 general election in HULL WEST and HESSLE. She came fourth out of seven candidates, with 5.5% of the vote . . . "

Rafreshing honesty, though. Something to add to his mistakes page.

Andrew Marr, on the other hand .... oops, I mentioned his other hand.

To be fair, you’re right. In an age where denial is the default setting, his honesty in admitting he should have prepared better is refreshing. I withdraw my initial dork assessment! =)
 
Barry Gardiner - Labour shadow international trade secretary, waffle, waffle, yes but no but,
Martin Lewis - Money Saving Expert
Suella Braverman - Pro-Brexit, former Brexit minister, Conservative (for now)
Jane Merrick - "commentator" - journalist, joined Labour but left due to Corbyn and anti-semitism.

Martin reckons Farage's personality is a primary driver for the remarkable surge in TBP's popularity and compares it with Trump and the previous surge in Corbyn's popularity which he reckons is fading now. He thinks Labour are sitting on the fence and focused on damage limitation.

Suella fears for Tories next week but will be voting for them. Labour has "a completely incoherent position."

AN mentions reversion to Probation service re-nationalisation and asks what does Chris Grayling have to do to get sacked? Madeline mentions the cost of Labour's proposed re-nationalising the National Grid. How long can PMTM continue as PM? "Britain Elects" poll on clarity of policy shows Labour in bottom place at 13% and Conservatives second from bottom. No agreements on the panel about Brexit. AN says the relittegating of the basis of the 2016 referendum is making peoples hearts drop.

Definition of Islamophobia. Lady from Muslim Council of Wales. AN asks if it is Islamophobia to critise niquab. She says use of the terms "letterbox" or "bank robber" is Islamophobic but she defends the right of someone to question her wearing of the niquab. Accuses Doglas Murray of being an Islamophobe. Madeline mentions unintended consequnces of broadening the definition. There have been concerns about blasphemy law coming through the back door. AN tackles Scully on lack of transparency about issues of islamophobia in the party.

Had to go for a p*** and missed someyhing bit about Pol Pot's re-education camps.

Clean air, cycling and electric cars. There are 37 million drivers in the UK. None of today's panel have an electric car. Ed can't find an electric car he can use suitable for his disabled son. Baroness Prosser gave up driving last year. Chris uses a small car and public transport. Madeline rarely drives and wants a driverless car. Andrew has his own driver.

Laura K tweet was mentioned - she describes goings on as farcical. 1922 meeting went on longer than planned. People were starting to leave the room but seem to be moving to another meeting room. She says it's anyones guess as to what's going on.

So essentially they want jokes about how people dress banned.

And wonder why people might be the tiniest bit concerned...
 
Caroline Criado Perez (feminist activist), Peter Hitchens, Emma Barr (Centre for Political Studies, former media at CCHQ) and Steve Richards join Jo Coburn to discuss Theresa May’s departure and whether facial recognition can be used to cut crime.

Caroline Criado-Perez - Wikipedia
Not the usual feminist they have on. She comes across as having well researched logical arguments.

Emma Barr

Peter Hitchens ask who would actually want the PM's job now? he doesn't like her or her politics but does feel sorry for her. He says he wouldn't be surprised if she was still in post in 2029. "There are no big beasts. They are just small furry animals). Steve Richards says Graham Bradey likes PMTM a lot. Talk of her leaving each time seems "darkly comic".

In a trial on facial recognition, refusal to be photographed by the cameras by covering one's face can result in confrontation by the police and photographs forcibly taken. What about niqabs? Peter draws parallels with China. Caroline is opposed to blanket surveillance. Emma says technology should be explored but that it is not ready. Steve Richards is happy about it. He says he has stuff to hide but is relaxed about it.

He was a curious chap.
Didn't want to be on a Police camera,but was quite happy to be filmed by the BBC.
 
Only saw the short (broadcast) version, but the PC's response to the bloke saying he didn't think he should have to show his face was unfortunately the attitude that browns off a lot of people - including law-abiding police-supporting types like myself.

If you're a "bad 'un", and the (police) authorities (already) have your picture in-the-system, and they wish to locate you, it might seem appropriate to use facial recognition.

But, everyone should NOT need to have their face photo'd, just so the authorities can eliminate you from their surveillance/enquiries.
 
Had a quiet chuckle to myself this morning , watching Andrew Marr tell Vince Cable he couldn't use the words "Bollocks to Brexit", because of the time .

Two leavers! Julia Hartley-Bewer and Andrea Jenkyns
vs two remainers, Ian Blackford and an argumentative Seb Dance Labour MEP
Andrea should be better briefed. She has opinions and conviction but she should have better answers.

Dance is trying very hard but tying himself up in knots, or should that be nots!

He actually said at one point that a vote to leave in the referendum was really a vote to leave only if we got a deal otherwise we stay! He is so up his own EU that he can happily disregard the votes.

He has just complained that Farage did not take the milkshaking as a joke! Dance is a complete joke!
