Forde's Political Party shows in which he grills politicians have had a loyal following for over half a decade. Imagine Paxman-meets-Richard Herring, politics-meets-playfulness. I had the misfortune of seeing Jacob Rees Mogg do one in 2016 just before the Referendum so I've always had mixed feelings about them.
