Why are British politicians holding interviews in their kitchens? Are all the TV studios booked up? asks Rachel Thorpe from London
Hi Rachel!!!!! You have the wrong angle on this. TV reporters these days just happen to show up at the back door of, let’s say, Mr Cameron or Mr Miliband a month or so before a national election, find it unlocked and walk into the kitchen to find a fully geared up production crew who have lit and marked out the floor space for an informal chat. The politician was just putting the carpaccio on a plate to get that metro feel to the day while also drying his hands as he completes a ginger jam bread and butter pudding to grab the older prole vote. That’s it really, Rach, in a cardomen-encrusted nutshell.
So, please, don’t be so suspicious all the time. There is no conspiracy here…and that’s official.
(Note from the editor – this response was crafted before Libdumb boss Nikki Klegg was interviewed in his fully tooled-out garage underneath his Chevy pickup putting in a new transmission as his kids did their chemistry homework while playing on their X-Box and his fancy-pants Euro lawyer wife handed him a 8mm torque wrench and took an international conference call about something very arcane and important).
