Good Christ is that what miser sounds like? I thought it almost obvious that mods would have booming voices of the Gods but the reality appears to be quite different

What happened to the other question links?

Good interview, my impression of Norman has improved drastically- and I think he'd be a good caretaker leader post Clegg. I strongly agreed with him on pretty much everything, if only he was bit more charismatic/ younger- he reminds me in some ways of John Major (though not in what he's saying).

I felt it was a well conducted interview.

Although, I wish you included more of our questions. I suppose they had to refer to Mental Health but even so, he is one of the bookies favourites to become the party leader of the Libdems. So surely he should be more than capable to defend his parties record in government.

Why are you speaking to him like he's a bit slow?

We only had a short while to conduct the interview so unfortunately didn't have time to ask more questions otherwise I would have.

I'd like to - it's a matter of convincing them to find time in their schedule for it.

Hey,
We wish we could have included more questions as well! Unfortunately we were on a strict time limit and we were told the focus of the interview should be mental health- keep your eye out for other Q&As though so you can ask your questions!

Yeah, I was nervous! I thought "I won't fall into the trap of speaking too quickly!" but fell into the opposite! There's surprisingly much to think about while doing the interview so it was a learning experience.

hello miser, thanks for asking for my expert advice.

I thought you did a reasonable job. Perhaps try to be a bit more relaxed and work on seguing from one question to the next more smoothly, rather than just staring at your notes in silence and then suddenly spurting out a question.

The silence between questions was intentional as this was requested in order to maintain the integrity of the audio recording, though I agree it would've been more interesting to make it more interactive.

Check out the full interview with Norman Lamb in the video below!

It should also be pointed out that Norman Lamb hasn't been Clegg's PPS since early 2012.
