Watch the hunter become the hunted. Paul Lambert, the former BBC producer, now Ukip’s head of communications, finds himself in the firing line of Channel 4 News’s Michael Crick.
Formerly known as “Gobby” in Westminster for hurling questions at politicians during his time as a BBC producer, Paul Lambert became head of communications for Ukip in December.
The long-serving producer was often heard in the background to TV news packages. He once asked David Cameron and Nick Clegg: “Are you off to renew your vows?”
In one famous exchange in 2005, he asked Cherie Blair when her husband planned to resign, sparking the response: “Darling, that’s a long way in the future.”
In 2011 Gobby broke Westminster rules by filming the arrest of a protester who had attacked Rupert Murdoch with a foam pie.
Last December he shouted at George Osborne: “Have you fixed the deficit yet, Chancellor?”
Mr Farage said at the time of his hiring: “He will fit Ukip like a glove. Drive, passion, hard work, honesty and immense good humour are the hallmarks of Paul. It’ll be fun working with him”.
