Stealing from Radio 4

analogue politician
new shiny
of the moment
man of the past
out of touch
not with the new
newness the longer
run will they stop
smoozing up smoozing up up up
the clear answer is no
in the raw 24 hours a day it’s mediated
power profound structure end
profound profound I agree
new and ahead
big and bold
no one is quite clear
big things big big things
banking media brought up and defined
looking backwards
look we should just publish all of our social and professional encounters
a bold move that radical that new
newness the newness the news
look we should just publish all of our social and professional encounters
do you think they would do that
look we should just publish all of our social and professional encounters
do you agree in 10 seconds
transparency is not the end of the matter
it’s bigger than that

 

 

 

[words from The Independent’s chief political commentator Steve Richards and the Spectator’s political editor James Forsyth]
