Always liked Jeremy Paxman for his no-bulls**t attitude when interveiwing politicians (see his Michael Howard interview where he asks the same question about 14 times due to not being given a straight answer, as an example - it's up on youtube).
Hadn't seen this before though.
Last year, the producers of Newsnight thought it would be a good idea to replace Financial News with a weather report.
Paxman hated the idea and thought it dumbed down the programme. Knowing that he's basically irreplaceable, he decided to take the p**s, as shown in these clips from 'Have I Got News For You'.
OLD, but funny if you've not seen it before. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMAt8ZXqtbc
