The BBC political editor Nick Robinson no oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fool and doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take kindly to anyone who takes the piss out of him.
Veteran broadcaster David Dimbleby managed to get on RobboÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wrong side

If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re watching the TV programme in England and saw David Dimbleby mock me for repeating what heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d just said, you might be interested to know that one of my first jobs was as the researcher who whispers facts into his earpiece.
Later I was the editor of programmes he made, and he advised me to become a reporter. I took his advice. Now, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s my turn to give him some!
Axegrinder reckons that might just be a very short, two-word piece of advice.
