One thought on "Adam Boulton"

  1. John Riley says:

    I’ve just watched Adam Bolton interviewing Peter Allen and Laura Perrins. It was very noticeable that Boulton seemed totally disinterested in the views of Laura and kept giving knowing looks to the camera as if he found her stupid and boring. Boulton showed a total lack of respect towards Laura. Would he dared be so disrespectful to any other female guest? He should apologise to the viewers and Miss Perrins. Who does he think he is?
