How not to do an interview: Grant Shapps demonstrates

1. Running away from Michael Crick rarely works.

2. Running away from Michael Crick whilst he has a camera crew in tow even more rarely works.

3. Running away from Michael Crick into the wrong room and then having to turn around and walk back past the camera even more rarely works.

4. Running away from Michael Crick into a wrong room for the second time takes the odds of success into the realms of the never never.

5. But if you are going to do that, remember not to turn round at the end and give a short answer sounding out of breath and without looking at camera or questioner. Because that always looks so convincing.

All of which means of course no-one would ever do 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Oh, hang on:

Mind you, at least Grant Shapps didn’t try the ‘eating a cookie slowly’ trick.

    I thought we’d established that Shapps very much did do “1234”?

    And then you could always try:

    “Shapps? No, my name is Michael Green.” 🙂

    HAHAHAHA! Crick is generally priceless but this time he excelled himself.
    And 10 out of 10 for a great set up Mark!

  • This is the week of the year when it is impossible to pretend that they are not still the nasty party. The rest of the time we have been taking a deep breath and saying, “Yes, but…”
