Starting us off this week with the North West Sunday Politics screened across the region yesterday on BBC1. You'll need to advance the iPlayer cursor to 41 minutes 55 secs to get off at the appropriate stop.

I'll return to this later, but boxing fans in particular will enjoy the action at 57:40 where acknowledged Labour Party bruiser Simon Danczuk, given special dispensation from the no-platform policy, attempts a cheeky left jab to his opponent's ribs.
