Gore's problem with politicians

Former US Vice President Al Gore has said US politicians serve the interests of wealthy industries, rather than the interests of the public.

Speaking to Sian Williams on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, he added that television coverage of current affairs "selectively represents information that is paid for".

For that reason, he ruled himself out of a return to office, calling himself "a recovering politician" attempting to avoid a "relapse".
