Is a new film and I think it’s about a spin doctor?


Apparently, according to my phone, which knows everything, Armando Ianucci, one of the stars, has written in tonight’s Evening Standard magazine.


He says that he met me during a broadcasting round, and that I showed him Brown’s letter.


He says that I was bustled away into a flash car by minders and he wondered who was in show business and who was in politics?


Two points to make here, a) I had no idea who he was. I thought he was a very nice man who worked on the set of breakfast TV and  b) the flash car bit is such a lot of cobblers!!


Time to slip out of character Mr Ianucci. You were only pretending to be a spin doctor!!

and he's the writer, rather than a star.

And he is a very clever writer. You are a very clever politician, although you would like us to think along very different lines wouldn't you`?
What's his name? said:

You need to watch this movie. I'm astonished you seem to have barely heard about it.

o dere, o dere. You seem to be peremptemporily uninformed. How could you have missed this? I can only assume your reearch dept. is operating on a shoe-string! To work backwards, the man you met was Armando Iannucci. He was next on the GMTV Sofa because his movie "In The Loop" was just about to hit the big screen. This movie was based on a previous body-of-work for the BBC including 'The Thick Of It.''The Day Today', 'Brass Eye' & 'Alan Partridge' It is well observed, funny & aposite. How do you not know about this? How removed are you..?

He also used to write and present a show called The Friday Night Armastice... possibly the finest political satire between Spitting Image and The Daily Show. The Elction Night Amastice is still my abiding image of the 1997 election. The "Mr Tony Blair" character was so prophetic...

Dear God woman, have you been outside of Westminster since you were elected? You'll be asking who Gaza is next!
