I wrote a piece last September about how Radio 4's Sunday “likes giving Gordon Brown a platform to promote his causes”, noting that he'd been “granted the Sunday bully pulpit no less than three times over the past year, pushing his agenda with the BBC's help”.
“It's all very Sunday”, I wrote. “In the years that I've covered them, they've always had their favourites and put them centre-stage.”
I then called Gordon Brown “their living saint among UK politicians.”
I repeat all this because Gordon Brown was back on Sunday once again this morning pushing a campaign (and an online petition) to compel the UK government to give more aid to the Afghans.
[He's forever wanting to give our money away.]
Ed Stourton's questioning - or more accurately 'questioning' - was very helpful to the former prime minister.
And so it continues!
