It was clash of the ego time on the Politics Show yesterday as TonyMcNulty and Kit Malthouse competed to see who could appear the most self-important.
In the end it was no real contest with Kit Malthouse easily out-smugging his older rival.
There was a stumble or two as he tried to separate improvements made by the government and Ken Livingstone (invented) from the improvements made in the last eight months (very very real) but overall it was a clear win for the 'house.
The accompanying report from Andrew Cryan and the interview by Tim Donovan are as ever bang on the money.
However, it was a little harder than usual to adjudicate, given that both Malthouse and McNulty are as keen as each other to cook the books.
Still, overall it was yet another weekly dose of quality London political coverage on the Beeb. And it's on a Sunday as well. Who can complain?
