I think Andrew Marr is absolutely brilliant and would like him to read me bedtime stories.

bundle, that sounds like a purchase too far...
will you truly watch it again and again?
I love AM, esp in his green jersey, but once is enough

Ooh he sat next to me on the train out of Waterloo the other evening (I had accidentally wandered into first class). I nearly told him that I love his Sunday AM show but chickened out.

Really enjoyed this although having lived through the miners' strike in S Yorks I thought he really underplayed the police brutality. Which was very real. We knew people who had to call out the local (traffic) cops to protect them from the Met, who were all up on overtime and had been given permission to beat up whoever they fancied. Truly.

Edam I also lived through this in South Yorks - it was grim wasn't it? I fully remember the houses of people that had scabs painted across them and how many extra people needed free school dinners so the queue for the token was huge.

Dh and I were wondering if he was married, and if so if his dw chooses his clothes (esp. the pink zip up polo shirt).

Other than that, he's fab and it's one of only 3 things a week we watch at the moment (is it my imagination or is telly really really shit these days??)

It is but Rome is back on which helps.

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 10:36:16

sorry, girls. He's gay.

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 10:38:15

and reading down, yes, the Met were despised by other forces present from other parts of the country for exactly that reason.

I thought he had about 4 kids? We are talking about Andrew Marr now, are we not?

From wikipedia...

"Marr lives in West London with his wife, the political journalist Jackie Ashley, a daughter of the former Labour Member of Parliament, Jack Ashley. The couple have three children. He once jokingly wrote in a newspaper that he had no idea what to get his wife for Christmas, so was intending to buy her a burqa. Jackie Ashley responded by writing in to the paper to say that he would probably get her the wrong size anyway."

Pan Fri 22-Jun-07 11:04:00

I was teasing.

but he probably has four kids and a gay lover.......
