Rawnsley v. Prescott
Newsnight saw Paxo give fellow journalist Andrew Rawnsley a robust interview, but the best part of the programme was a frenetically angry John Prescott. I love hearing John Prescott talk about bullying and losing your temper. He virtually spat out his hatred of Rawnsley, condemning him for writing a book to make money. Rawnsley had a nice comeback, of course, when he referenced Prescott's own memoirs and Mrs. Prescott's presumably financially viable serialisation rights for her book by the Daily Mail. Good job Prescott wasn't actually in the same studio otherwise I think Rawnsley would have felt the famous left hook.
