MARTIN Bashir.

Byline: Tony Parsons

MARTIN Bashir is in big trouble in the US for an astonishing speech to a banquet of Asian-American journalists." I'm happy to be in the midst of so many Asian babes," leered Bashir.

You might get away with that line in the Here Pussy Pussy club in Bangkok - although it would be have to be near closing time - but addressing the Asian American Journalists Association in such a way looks like career suicide.

But the man who made his name interviewing Princess Diana in 1995 did not stop there.

Having broken the ice, Bashir went on to inform his stunned audience that he was so very excited to feast his eyes upon them that: "I'm happy the podium covers me from the waist down." Is that a microphone in your pocket, Martin? Bashir left the UK to work as a news anchor in America. Some doubted he could make it but now there can be no question. Martin "Me Interview You Long Time" Bashir really is a complete anchor.
