Laura Kuenssberg is rapidly becoming our favourite interviewer. Hot on the heels of her recent outstanding piece on Newsnight about the forthcoming potential criminalisation of prostitution in England and Wales, last night she interviewed Harriet Harman at length about the issue of the Paedophile Information Exchange’s affiliation with the National Council of Civil Liberties (of which Harriet Harman was the legal officer for some years)over 30 years ago:
We’ll be posting the piece on our YouTube channel in the next day or two, but if you want to watch this now, these are the relevant sections:
00:00 – 0:30 Introduction by Jeremy Paxman
1:02 – 3:16 Background to the story
3:17 – 10:57 Harriet Harman interviewed by Laura Kuenssberg
10:58 – 12:33 Discussion between Jeremy Paxman and Laura Kuenssberg
We can’t recall an interview in which Harman – a vile radical feminist of the worst sort – has ever been challenged so professionally and unflinchingly. We comment Laura Kuenssberg on a job well done. We’d pay good money to see her interview the damnable woman at greater length about the damage she’s wrought on British society over more than 30 years.
