James Naughtie being a plonker on the Today Programme on BBC Radio 4 this morning when he tried to bully Harriet Harman into saying what went wrong with the Labour campaign....just 3 days after what all pundits....Naughtie included....admit was a complete surprise election result.

Acting leader of the Labour Party does a great job of standing up to the ridiculous, smug James Naughtie on the Today Programme. #BBC , #Today #HarrietHarman #Labour #sigh #JamesNaughtie

Time to switch off the white noise and look at the evidence
