I thought Dateline London was exceptional earlier today.

For some reason they had three guests instead of four (perhaps someone had dropped out at the last minute?) and this format worked much better than four guests all clammering to be heard.

Michael Goldfarb was on very good form and I am surprised news analysis programmes do not make more use of him.  Ian Birrell (Daily Mail) talked a lot of sense.  Agnes Poirier was as barbed as ever (describing the Commonwealth as "former slaves meeting once a year to see their old master").

Half an hour was too short really.
