CAMPAIGN DIARY: Talk is silenced with a dirty (and funny) joke

Paul Gascoigne and sex proved to be the main topics at Talk Radio’s World Cup Debate, held at Planet Hollywood last week.

Paul Gascoigne and sex proved to be the main topics at Talk Radio’s

World Cup Debate, held at Planet Hollywood last week.



The panel - consisting of Talk Radio’s head of sport, Moz Dee, and the

football luminaries, Andy Gray, Alan Mullery, Lou Macari and Rodney

Marsh - agreed with MediaVest’s group media director, Yan Huybrechts,

that Gazza wasn’t fit enough to play in the World Cup.



Bearing in mind that the debate took place three days before Hoddle

himself had decided, rumours immediately started circulating around the

hall that the England team’s psychic, Eileen Drewery, must have been

consulted by the panel before they answered.



The funniest question of the night came from an anonymous MediaCom

man.



He suggestively asked whether Talk Radio’s many female listeners would

prefer Seaman or Flowers.



His smutty remark forced Talk Radio’s production team to cut the live

broadcast and quickly order the audience to keep future questions clean.
