No matter what your politics and I am no Corbyn fan, what a bully and self centred bellend Paxman is. Let the man answer; it's not about you Paxman.

Yanbu.
Corbyn is doing well.

Yadnbu. Paxman is being a wanker of the highest order here.

Paxman is irritating. I liked the q&a but getting bored with Paxmans refusal to let JC answer - questions are the same as from the Q&A as well - get some new material. YANBU

BillyButtfuck Mon 29-May-17 21:12:39

Completely agree! I was going to start a thread saying exactly this!!

I am watching this to get further understanding on May and Corbyn as leaders, I'm not interested in Paxmans opinions or agenda.

YANBU. Corbyn is doing better than I would. I'd have punched him on the nose by now. or walked off crying in frustration

krazipan Mon 29-May-17 21:13:17

I've had to turn it off. JC couldn't get a word in edge ways! I wouldn't call that an interview

Even is he is just as much of a bully with TM, it won't make it ok. It's just crap journalism.

YADNBU.

Paxman is, indeed, being a twat.

TheNewSchmoo Mon 29-May-17 21:14:11

He's being a total prick. I'm very anti Corbyn, but I want to hear what he has to say

He is awful, terrible interviewer and came across as a total twat. I thought Corbyn handled him well.

Orlantina Mon 29-May-17 21:15:44

I do wonder if he'll be the same to May?

FantasyAndHope Mon 29-May-17 21:15:53

Yanbu. Watching with dd and she said the same.
How was he supposed to convince people to vote for him if he wasn't given the chance to answer and explain things.
Paxman tried to delve into his personal beliefs too.

Doobydoo Mon 29-May-17 21:16:56

Yanbu.i thought there would be an intelligent question or 2 but instead got a petulant shouty child

PetronellaOsgood Mon 29-May-17 21:17:04

Absolutely infuriating, what is the point of asking him a question then not letting him answer it!

Perfectplonker Mon 29-May-17 21:18:00

I thought Corbyn handled him very well.

Jeremy's questions seemed irrelevant and repetitive, like a gnat buzzing around a calm and gentle bull.

Urm....no I don't fancy Corbin. Honest.

Well, after this interview maybe a little grin

ExcuseMyEyebrows Mon 29-May-17 21:18:03

Oh YANBU! I was really looking forward to this but I've had to switch off as he just won't let Corbyn answer the bloody questions.

Hefzi Mon 29-May-17 21:18:30

Why would you think he would be different, though? He always comes across as an arrogant bully confused

JC was brilliant there, kept his cool totally and answered coherently and succinctly to Paxmans ridiculous questioning, Paxman looked like a fool.

Am sure he wont be so hard on TM, she deserves to be ripped apart but she wont be.

ComingUpTrumps Mon 29-May-17 21:19:17

YANBU. Maybe Paxman sees what he's doing as trying to hold politicians to account, but he comes across as quite rude and disrespectful.

(For further reference, watch his interview with Michael Howard where he asks 'did you threaten to overrule him?' something like 13 times, and he later admitted that he decided to repeat the question so much in order to fill up time)
