Andrew Marr's introduction this morning ran as follows:
Oh, it's very, very bad. People of Britain! When it comes to Brexit, think again. You don't have to do this. Thus, Tony Blair this week. And what came back was a kind of Wagnerian raspberry. Is it actually all over for Remain? To talk about Tony Blair and "rising up" against Brexit, I'm joined by one of his closest political friends, the former cabinet minister, Lord Mandelson. From a master of the political game of chess to the real thing. I've been speaking to former world champion, Garry Kasparov, about his opposition to Putin and Donald Trump. Responding for the government, Justice Secretary Liz Truss. She'll be talking too about the images of drugs, violence and anarchy in prisons on our TV screens this week. And speaking of anarchy, I've been talking to Tom Hollander about his dazzling return to the stage in a Tom Stoppard classic. Describe the play briefly omitting all but essential detail. Act one. Plus we've got music from Chuck Prophet, the sound of 'California Noir'. That's my editor's desperate attempt to make me seem even slightly cool. Didn't work! Reviewing the papers this morning, the Labour MP, Caroline Flint, Tim Shipman of the Sunday Times, and UKIP's only MP, Douglas Carswell. All that coming up soon, but first the news with Christian Fraser.It must be BBC policy to introduce Mr. Carswell as "UKIP's only MP" on his every appearance!
