Yet another exchange from this morning's Andrew Marr show, this time starring Bjorn from Abba, against accompanied by a heckle:
Andrew Marr: That was ABBA at their finest, and we always like having rock and pop musicians on the show, particularly when they have intervened in our national political life, as you have. Let's take a look at this: (Clip of Theresa May jiving to Dancing Queen). Did you see that at the time?Bjorn: I saw it, yes I did, it made the news, even in Sweden.Andrew Marr: What did you think?Bjorn: Like Tony Blair was saying, I think she was very brave in doing that.Andrew Marr: She's taking the Mickey out of herself basically.Bjorn: It is kind of touching. It's a lady with not a lot of rhythm in her, braving and doing something like that. I was kind of touch, actually.Andrew Marr: I was talking to Benny, your colleague, a little while ago and he was saying he was very upset about Brexit. He felt personally hurt and upset about Britain leaving the EU. I wondered if you feel the same.Bjorn: That was my initial feeling too, like a friend not wanting to be your friend any more. But we have come a long way since then, and I have come to realise that Britain will always be Britain, whatever happens.
Far-left Pete may be wrong about Andrew being a "Tory shill" but, my goodness, Our Andy really did seem to going out of his way to be nice about Our Theresa this morning. Maybe Robbie Gibb should hire him to come to Downing Street at least once a day and act as Official Flatterer to the Prime Minister, so as to keep up Mrs May's morale during the difficult days to come?
