When, in June, Paxman finally hangs up those weary eyebrows and quits Newsnight, he will cap a glittering career. For 25 years, Paxman's main talent has been the ability to ask questions of the foremost inconsequence in the manner of a courtroom drama auditionee.
Do you want my alternative, semi-serious take on the rise and rise of Ukip, Ed Miliband's 'Venezuelan' reforms of the rental market, Jeremy Paxman's decision to quit Newsnight and Cameron v Bercow at PMQs?
Never mind all the people queuing at food banks, spare a thought for the richest in society, who have to shoot their dinner out of the sky. Thankfully our caring government has subsidised the use of shotguns so those elite few can gun down birds in the countryside.
The Muslim community is far from perfect, but our misrepresentation as squabbling men who need reforming through those who have themselves rejected the faith is palpably absurd. Who speaks for Muslims? How about the myriad Muslims doing the hard graft on the ground.
It may turn out that Noel Edmonds and his consortium are not the right people to save the BBC. Nevertheless, it doesn't look good when a flagship BBC news programme mocks someone for showing an interest in transforming the broadcaster for the better. Whether Paxman likes it or not, the BBC has to change.
Like countless others, I was inspired and enthused by Tony Benn and his passion for politics. And I consider myself lucky to have appeared on telly with him. Once.
This isn't just about economics. The politics matter, too. Pledging to tackle inequality - within the rubric of "Whose recovery is this?" - helps Labour neutralise the positive Tory narrative of "Growth is back". Crucially, it offers Miliband his own brand of progressive populism to challenge the right-wing, anti-welfare populism of the Conservatives. This is the Inequality Moment.
Surely you must know the adverse effects of bad diet and no exercise. Why should the taxpayer pay for what is, ultimately, the exercise of your freedom of choice? This is the question that Jeremy Paxman asked the former NHS chief Sir David Nicholson, when Nicholson went to Newsnight to describe his transition from being the head of the NHS to becoming yet another NHS patient with diabetes.
How pathetic was I to feel so excited by seeing a young black man, whom I don't even know, on a high brow news programme? How depressing that in 2014 it's still a big deal; that we take to twitter to scream "there's a black person on", something our parents were doing 30 or 40 years ago. Why are we still doing it today?
With the excesses of Christmas behind you, it's time to make some changes for the better...
My view is that the BBC is simply not transmitting an accurate account of reality. Over the space of the year it has ignored significant news and spun events to present something quite different from what those involved witnessed.
I have met Peter Hitchens and found him quite pleasant off set but when the cameras were on I found him a bit silly. On occasion, I find myself agreeing with him, but there is usually a later paragraph where it all goes awry. He is much like David Icke, there are moments where I nod, then I turn the page and go, "ah, perhaps not".
So, how many Romanians will come to Britain in 2014? Most probably, they will be fewer than in the previous years... . Romania's economy records the highest growth rate in Europe and the unemployment is low, so more and more Romanians are coming back home.
Dear Russell, I am writing this letter to you following your recent interview to promote your tour on Newsnight.
One thing's for sure, Brand has managed to get the county talking, and that's a political bullseye in itself. It seems it takes a rather large hammer to crack the apathetic nut that is UK politics, and this proves Russell's point as to why there's a very real and ingrained reason that we're swaddled in political apathy. We are creaking under the laden weight of a benign democracy.
Lots of people on Facebook and Twitter responded '*YAY* Russell *YAY*' to Russell Brand's Newsnight interview with Jeremy Paxman, last week. He is cer...
