Re: You can't be seriousDate: 8 March 2002
SIR - I note from Peterborough that the John Humphrys/Today programme publicity machine now claims to have been told that the Prime Minister will never again appear on the programme (Mar. 7).
They have been told no such thing, and I've no doubt that he will appear on the programme in the future. However, I think it is fair to say we do not take the programme as seriously as we once did, and we certainly don't take it as seriously as it takes itself.
