Jeremy Paxman was left with egg on his face this morning. Following taunts from his poor wife Liz Clough that he couldn't be nice if he tried, Paxman took advantage of the summer break from his hectic schedule to prove her wrong.
Having spent 4 blissful weeks in the Isle of White, Paxman remained calm, pleasant and thoroughly open minded throughout. Liz, his long suffering wife said "it has been a dream come true, you just wouldn't think for one minute that Jezz actually has this warm, amiable and cuddly side in him, but he has." She went on to recant about a particular afternoon in the local pub 'The Trout Faced Witch' on the coast "This rogue at the bar just kept on and on about politics and Iraq and Jezz never once rose to it, he remained unbiased throughout, and he even actually let the rogue speak..!"
The BBC have sacked him apparently because of a breach in his contract. As part of licence funding regualations the BBC must at all times remain impartial and objective and it is felt that the new Paxman will be unable to do this anymore.
