Emily Maitlis destroyed UKIP’s deputy leader with words and it’s a very satisfying watch

UKIP’s deputy leader Mike Hookem – no, us neither – was on Newsnight being interviewed by Emily Maitlis and, well, it would probably have been better for all concerned if he hadn’t bothered.

Because the Newsnight presenter destroyed him with words and it’s a very satisfying watch.


Call the police, there’s been a murder. Broadcasting House.

But what was he doing on there in the first place?

He later turned up on Good Morning Britain and it didn’t go much better there either.
