Cameron, I had to admit, is the better dressed of the two but David Milliband, who I explained had recently been in the press as a possible contender in a future Labour leadership race, is the best dressed of the lot.

After the interview I handed the TVP journalist my moo card in the hopes that he’d send me a link to the video clip. He did, and it turns out that TVP decided that rather than calling me an ordinary man on Oxford Street, which for all intentions and purposes I was that day, it would actually lend weight to the piece if they referred to me as "dziennikarz, autor internetowego bloga":
