Now I'm all for Boris Johnson being questioned as often as possible, but can somebody explain to me what the point of this morning's interview on the Today programme was?
According to Dave Hill, the Mayor was all but dragged into the studio to answer questions on the departure of Ian Blair.
So did the BBC have some new killer angle or exclusive information to put to the Mayor? Apparently not.
What we actually got was almost ten minutes of Humphreys asking ever-varied versions of 'why did you sack him?' until most listeners (and presumably Boris) lost the will to live.
