Paxman's Sneer

A glorious start to this evening's Newsnight. Opening with the most recent Halifax advert, we see the chirpy Halifax manager walking towards the beach singing "Woke up this morning, feeling fine...." Cue Paxman's voice over, in his best, most savage tones - "No you didn't". Newsnight theme - crisis of capitalism - etc etc.

Ha - I just had to watch the ad again online, I love that one! Did make me laugh to see the Sun's leader article yesterday resolve around Howard Brown - face of the earlier Halifax ads, though he also made a brief cameo in this one - and how he may be in line to lose his job. Never mind the other 40,000...
