Krishnan Guru-Murthy on Channel 4 News has just done an almost identical thing with the Prison officers strike to the point that I almost actually pee'd my pants. First of all he had the Prisons Minister, David Hanson MP in the studio and established that the Government position was that this years pay deal was non-negotiable and that they would only discuss next years'.
Five minutes later he cut to the top bod from the Prisons Officers union who read a statement out about how the prisons officers were going back to work after they had agreed on further discussions with the Government. Guru-Murphy says to him, and I paraphrase, "well we just had David Hanson, the Prisons Minister on here and he says the pay for this year is non-negotiable". Can you guess what the Union bod did?
It was absolutely hilarious, genuinely brilliant in fact. The Union official started going on about how it was disgusting that the Government were carrying out negotiations via TV interviews and talking with forked tongues and threatened to go back on strike in protest. I really really hope that Krishnan Guru-Murthy's colleagues present him with a big wooden spoon, because it was simply the most amusing moment of real-life imitating satire!
Update: The Day Today clip (thanks to flashgordonz in comments). My memory of the exact details of the two people in the sketch was misplaced, was about a trade agreement, not a peace settlement.
