Rachida (not her real name) was playing badminton in a Blackburn sports centre when I asked her if she'd talk to me about politics.

Last Night's Viewing: Rights Gone Wrong?, BBC2<br />Sri Lanka's Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished, Channel 4

Cue a mocked-up Police Appeal for Assistance bearing the features of the Daily Politics presenter, a man who has repeatedly breached his own right to dignity in the pursuit of televisual novelty. I still have sweaty flashbacks of him and Portillo doing a cover of "(Is This the Way to) Amarillo" for the 2005 election coverage.
