Apologies for blathering on about this topic again but as I was rushing out of the door this morning I just caught Justin Webb interviewing the Lib-Dem candidate for London Mayor.

No interrupting, no talking over, proper questions relating to the job of Mayor e.g. Transport for London and Housing. As a result the candidate was able to offer decent responses to the questions she was being asked. In addition Justin's follow up questions showed that he had actually listened to what his interviewee was saying and adjusting his "script" according.

This shows that BBC Radio Journalists can conduct proper interviews of mayoral candidates that provide information and illumination for electors. However this all rather reinforces my complaint about Sarah Montague's appalling behaviour when interviewing Zac Goldsmith earlier this week. Zac and the rest of us licence fee payers deserve an genuine apology from Sarah herself.   

By the way is the Lib-Dem candidate really called Pigeon or is that just a nom de plume/guerre? How times change - Ken Livingstone would surely have had a her shot or poisoned as a health hazard?
