The naked interviewer

From BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson’s excellent Blog, on his interview with the sacked Home Secretary, Charles Clarke…

I’ve often interviewed resigning ministers, but this was amongst the bizarrest. When I was called to be told the news, I was naked in bed in a Westminster hotel hoping to get at least an hour’s sleep, having stayed up all night covering the local elections. The interesting discovery I’ve made is that you can go from being in bed to attending a resignation statement in exactly seven minutes.

Er, bizarrest???
