On Tuesday, Newsnight will air an interview with former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in which Jeremy Paxman asked the ageing lothario whether he called current German Chancellor Angela Merkel an "unf*ckable lard-arse".

Let me say that once again: Paxo asks Berlusconi whether he called Merkel an "unf*ckable lard-arse"... on the BBC.

Strange times are these in which we live...

Who could take over Newsnight from Jeremy Paxman?
