Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on this topic. I was so surprised by your answers because I expected everyone to say they thought asking Politicians such banal questions was ridiculous. I intentionally put it the way I did so that I could say this. Rishi Sunak obviously takes his job very seriously indeed - as I said yesterday - whether you agree with his politics or not is in this instance beside the point. Also in my own case I find it very hard to answer this sort of question because, like some of you say, 'favourites' change from day to day. Does it make any difference to how good an MP you are talking to when you know his preferences for what he does in his leisure time?
So as I promised I will tell you my answers but they will be what I feel at this moment - my answers might be totally different if you ask me tomorrow:
1. Any travel book by Patrick Leigh Fermor.
2. Tonight I would rather like to look at Hobemma's "Avenue" - tomorrow it may well be anything by Matisse.
3. "Ride On" sung by Christy Moore.
4. "Recuerdos d'Alhambra by Terrega if I am in one mood. Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis" if I am in another.
5. After eighteen months without them (because of Covid) a really good plate of fish and chips.
6. Don't get to the Cinema or Theatre much but do love Midsummer Night's Dream.
7. "All Creatures Great and Small" mainly because it is beautiful local scenery.
8. Don't watch football so can't say.
9. Chocolate one.
10. Quite partial to Lemon Meringue Pie.
I suppose what it really tells us is that sometimes journalists 'scrape the bottom of the barrel' when looking for something to write about.
