Oh, bless

Lovely interview by Eddie Mair with Siobhan McDonagh on PM on Radio 4 on Friday.

Asked whether she had been sacked as a junior whip, SB rather charmingly answered something like "I don't know, but that's what a lady from ITV has just told me."

Eddie Mair [kindly, jokey tone]: "And they tend to be right, don't they."

SM: "Yes, I suppose they do."

Incidentally, amazingly pronounced Australian intonation - going up at the end of sentences? As though always asking questions? - from SB. Austr. int. was put in Room 101 by Stephen Fry - reason 412 why he is the National Treasure of National Treasures.
