Paxo bows out in Bermondsey

What better way of concluding twenty-five years presenting BBC's Newsnight, than to go on a bike ride through Bermondsey with the Mayor of London?

Yesterday local residents were treated to the sight of the dynamic duo wobbling through the streets of Bermondsey on a century-old tandem as Paxman attempted to interview Boris, while the latter attempted to dodge the traffic.

The two are old sparring partners. In a 2009 interview Boris asked Paxman “Why don’t you get yourself a proper job instead of just sitting around telling politicians what to do all the time?”and Paxman replied “The usual convention, Boris, is that I ask the questions.”
