Now this is what I call a studio discussion.

My personal highlights are:

'My shoe and my urine are more dignified than you.'

'I spit on you and on your people.'

And - in the midst of all this - the plaintive line:

'George, we don't want the discussion to be like this.'

All of which is worth remembering next time we complain about the quality of debate on British TV.
