OK, there are interviewers, there are interruptive interviewers and there is Guyon Espiner. This morning on Q+A the wee fox terrier of politics produced the most appalling exhibition of interruptive interviewing in years.
The joy was that his guest, Metiria Turei, had him on toast. She handled the endless, non-stop, verbal diarrhoea of interruptions with humour, grace and steely determination. She waited him out, and she finished what she was going to say. In terms of handling interruptive interviewers, this is a master class!
