The strangest political interview you’ve never heard: Cllr Peter Martin

“Want to hear the most ridiculous beginning to a political interview that you’ve possibly ever heard?” So starts a clip from BBC Surrey’s breakfast show featuring an interview with Conservative Cllr Peter Martin, the person in charge of education at Surrey County Council.

You can listen to the clip here.

(Remember to listen all the way through to hear how Peter Martin takes a leaf out of Ed Miliband’s interview book.)

    This is Surrey we’re talking about. Even after this nonsense I’ll bet they’ll still elect anyone – good or bad – who wears a blue rosette.

    But hey, let’s enjoy the priceless clip. Thanks to Mark Pack for giving us something – and someone – to laugh at. Lucky that schools can take the academy route, eh?
