Anyone else find him strangely attractive?

Not sure whether it's the accent, the big ears or the potato nose, he doesn't look like he ought to be attractive, but he really really is.

I'm more of an Alex Thomson kinda gal. And Jon Snow of course.

I do like Paul Mason's accent though.

Alex won me over with his coverage of the general election. But he doesn't make my loins tingle like Mr Mason.

FraggleHair Mon 06-Jul-15 14:47:37

I think you should make your feelings known to Mr Mason.

Paul Mason is the real life embodiment of Wallace from Wallace and Gromit.

milliemanzi Mon 06-Jul-15 15:42:54

Oh you should watch the Northern Soul doc he did for the bbc! He proper busted some moves on there.

DeanParrish Mon 06-Jul-15 16:18:02

Oh yes. Paul Mason is my crush.

DeanParrish Mon 06-Jul-15 16:19:06

If he is reading this, I just want him to know I'm into Northern Soul too- hence the name!

I have to deal with him for work. I will alert him to this thread wink

A Google image search did not help me

DunelmDoris Mon 06-Jul-15 16:42:52

Hmm that's not the one I'm thinking of Glo!

The one I like is sexily intelligent and I've never seen his chest blush

MonstrousRatbag Mon 06-Jul-15 16:44:50

Hhmn. All yours, OP.

HelenaDove Mon 06-Jul-15 17:34:40

I like Paraic O Brien.

DunelmDoris Mon 06-Jul-15 22:31:27

I've decided what it is. It's the way he looks away from the camera on his video blogs. Mhmmm.

DeanParrish Mon 06-Jul-15 22:38:22

Do you think he is trying to corner the coy economist soul boy look?

DunelmDoris Mon 06-Jul-15 22:44:21

I'd say he's succeeded!

crossparsley Mon 06-Jul-15 22:45:45

He doesn't quite get into object status for me, but I bet if I knew him I'd fancy him.he wrote a lovely piece for the BBC on the Monkees when Davy Jones died, here. I love him for that (though it suggests he's a wee bit old for me really)

DunelmDoris Mon 06-Jul-15 22:49:08

Hmm he's 55. I'm 34. That's OK though right? He's just very clever smile

gummo Mon 06-Jul-15 22:52:42

Not him, Robert Peston is very nice though!

DeanParrish Mon 06-Jul-15 22:58:33

Yup but he is married. Damn. Why are they all married? Or gay? Or frightened of me?
(Mainly frightened, I have to admit)

perfectpeach Mon 06-Jul-15 23:00:11

I saw him give a speech once, he's much yummier in the flesh than you'd realise. Very clever, very nice and he's got a real presence. I like him.

SwedishEdith Mon 06-Jul-15 23:03:43

Yes, I like Paul Mason. And Alex Thomson. And Robert Peston. In fact, I like most major economics/international correspondents. Duncan Weldon is catching my eye now - nice and geeky and keen.

SwedishEdith Mon 06-Jul-15 23:06:50

And Richard Watson - Newsnight's security correspondent. I suspect he fancies himself a bit though.

Nettletheelf Mon 06-Jul-15 23:52:55

I thought this thread was going to be about that bloody awful wine in a carafe.

RedLentil Mon 06-Jul-15 23:57:01

Totally. A walking reminder too about why - after going out with one man with a Lancashire accent - I never deviated from that pattern. Clever Lancashire men ...
