Start the Week Thread 24 September 2018

The Far Left BBC has a busy week ahead to promote its biased anti British view of the world.

The Far Left Labour Party Conference, the Tommy Robinson political retrial , the evidence of a woman attempting to prevent President Trumps’ Supreme Court nominee by alleging indecent assault from 36 years ago. And I haven’t even mentioned the BBC Remainer propaganda .

So an easy week for us to evidence BBC Bias .

      Definitely First!
      The only views that Al Beeb represent are its own.
      Left, left, left, left.
      All driven by ‘Champagne socialists’ that have never done a real day’s work in their lives.
      Croeso!

    BBC reporting of Trumps nomination for supreme court total biased. They use every opportunity they can to side with this democratic liberal professor who actually can’t seem to remember things clearly from all them years ago. Whsts happened to innocent until proven guilty? Albeeb seem to ignore the fact that loads of women have written positive statements about judge Kavanaugh and that this alligation has been sat on my the democrats for months while they waited to release it just to block Trump’s conservative supreme court judge. Judge Kavanaugh is a conservative judge who it seems has a unblemished record with lots of decisions that we on here would agree with. BBC hate trump and are in bed with CNN and the lying democrats. The liberal left think they know better than everyone else and look down on the rest of us. Judge Kavanaugh could balance the supreme court out again in America and the left will do anything to stop him. It’s sad that here in the UK our supreme court judges have rules given to them by the unelected EU.i hope this changes soon

      Sadly I think that the Democrats have succeeded, with the help of their fellow travellers in the US media and BBC, in once again fooling a majority of Americans into believing their propaganda. This time the whole thing is so obviously a political set up , a fabrication that I am stupefied that anyone could possibly believe it. Surely I thought most ordinary folks will see it for what it is and resent the Democrats for treating them as fools and vote Republican. I massively underestimated the stupidity and gullibility of the average American voter. I’m afraid that the same may well be true over here and that Corbyn may be the beneficiary of the brain dead voters who make up a large slice of the population.
      It sounds like I think of millions of my fellow Brits and of American voters are thick, stupid, dumb, credulous, naive fools. Well you judge people by what they do and in this case if they think this Ford woman is telling the truth and that she isn’t doing a political job on Kavanaugh , then they are all and more of that long list of derogatory adjectives..
      PS I acknowledge H Clinton’s use of deplorable to dismiss millions of those who voted for President Trump but in this case I am right and she was wrong.

        Fooling all into believng their propaganda is absolutely correct Doublethinker and not only in the USA but in the UK and in Europe-gullibility tops the list. However I certainly would not acknowledge anything that the Clinton woman has to say, if she had won that Amercian election then one could most definitely use the word DEPLORABLE. She runs with the evil beings that want to subjugate us all just as the EU has been doing these past 45 yrs.

        The Demonrats have dug up another woman who alleges that Justice Kavanaugh exposed his genitals in a partysome 36 years ago.

        WASHINGTON, DC – The second woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of inappropriate drunken behavior, Deborah Ramirez, admits “significant gaps in her memories” regarding the college party in question. Critics note her allegations come after six days of consulting with a Democratic lawyer, other persons she claims were at the party deny her account, and even her college best friend admits, “I never heard of it.”

        If this doesn’t stop soon, Western civilisation is dead sooner then I though it would be. White men have created this amazing civilisation, that allows women and ethnic minorities to take apart in it. If for any reason White men lose interest in the civilisation they created, Islam and barbarism, now streaming in, will take over. Hello Dark Ages.

        There is a way. If men stand straight, with their shoulders back, and confront this feminist evil head on, it will collapse in a heap. Too, women will stand by their men. Its natural. There is nothing more frightening, physically or intellectually, then an outraged group of men.

        It is always thus.

      He must be confirmed or it would set the most chilling precedent. If one of the top jobs in the world can be denied to you on the basis of unproven allegations decades old then surely this rule could apply to anyone. This is why they have become the oppressors: skin colour matters more than character; women are weak and need special treatment; due process and presumption of innocence – the bedrock of civilisation – can be done away with.

      The Left are so dangerous as they believe utopia is possible, and who would not lie if it meant heaven on Earth? In their sick minds they are fighting evil therefore any tactics are fair game. It has been glorious to see Trump play them at their own game with all the vicious name calling etc. They dish it out – calling us racists etc – but they cannot take it. It has been wonderful to see them squirm under his relentless attacks, just the sort of crap they have put us through for the crime of wanting to maintain our way of life – a way that has created wonderful nations everyone wants to live in.

      I hope and suspect they may have scored an own goal here. Just when you think the ‘resistance’ cannot go any lower they manage to sink further. Those who openly subvert the most basic rules of common decency should not be allowed anywhere near power. They hid it well previously when they were in control but these past two years we have seen their true colours and what lurid shades they are. I cannot even watch the news anymore as their antics disgust me, and I am sure most other decent people feel exactly the same.

          Trump as always is the ballsy voice of common sense, Tweeting that if the crime were so bad she would have told someone about it when it happened. Though none of us can know what actually took place, this allegation has been extremely propitious for the Democrats. With any crime you ask who benefits from it, and lying here would have immeasurable benefit for the Democrats as the life term for a Supreme Court justice makes this arguably more important than the presidential election.

            I’d have to disagree with you on that. There are many reasons – e.g. shame, embarrassment – not to report at the time. The President should have kept out of that as there were plenty fighting on his behalf, but by sticking his oar in with lack of sensitivity he has unnecessarily alienated many women who have not reported assaults for just such reasons.

            What is not acceptable in my view is to decide 35 years later to make a vague report and expect anybody to act on it. Though in this case I’m inclined to believe the accusation is politically-motivated, and note another vague accusation that no one can corroborate has been made.

        The last attempts at Utopia was undertaken in the 20th century. It led to the mass slaughter of humans on a scale that would embarrass the Nazis.

        150 million dead at the least, and the nations so wounded in soul, it will take a century for them to recover.

        But till a proper global accounting of the pivotal role of Marxism and socialism in the Great Genocides of the 20th century is undertaken, there will be no learning from experience.

        The left has infiltrated universities and schools, turning out the same mindless bots that were responsible for The Great Genocides of the 20th century. The left decided that Russia and other East European nations have become immune to Marxism. So too the rest of Asia. However, America was still “innocent” of the evil of leftism.

        So here we are. Pres Trump, is what God has given us. He may appear “flawed”, but that may well be the the quality that is required.

      Sperm count rubbish is the excuse that is quoted. What is important is the IQ of the illegal migrants. There aren’t enough vacancies for premier league football players or security guards in Western economies. But we were told that the millions of Africans pouring in, courtesy of the lefty rescue boats, were all Power engineers, IT specialists and doctors. Sure.

      The real reason is simply to make a large fraction of Europe into Benefit dependents, who will vote socialist parties into power. The same happening in America. Only Australia mandates skills based migration. Of course they are racists . What else.

    I am still left shaking after the pro Labour spam on the BBC website. I am actually furious that our national broadcaster has sank this low and are now actually actively promoting the opposition party. This has to stop now!

    Will the Tories get the same treatment when it is their conference? They will be in Birmingham so expect lots of ‘Tory scum, stay out of Brum’ types of protests from people also holding ‘JC4PM’ banners yet the BBC would ignore that part and focus on any tiny mistake that a Tory PM makes. BBC interviews will be full of interruptions while some jumped up left wing commentator will mention how something the PM doing is a ‘disaster’ just to promote Corbyn even further

    Local news on BBC1 in London. We had Sadiq Khan at the Labour Party conference at a fringe meeting. The clip the BBC chose to show was Sadiq claiming that at the Mayoral election of 2020, Labour wouldn’t be just fighting the Torees but George Osborne’s Evening Standard too. Funny thing is that since the Brexit referendum I had thought George and Sadiq were on the same side.
    Talking of Brexit, the Local news then went to Portobello market and asked people about democracy. Sorry no, they asked whether there should be a second referendum since we didn’t get the last one right. There were a lot of white English born people just waiting to be asked and they all thought they needed to be asked again.

    Not really BBC but linked with Sadiq, and the sort of questions the BBC could be asking him. I was in north London this afternoon and was walking past a River Island store. As I looked up I saw three young men running carrying arms full of jeans out of the store. My first thought was they were delivery men. They weren’t. They were stealing maybe 30 pairs of jeans between them, not caring if they dropped a few pairs as they ran. They were not white or of African descent and they didn’t look Japanese either. This was 1 pm on a Sunday, openly thieving in a leafy suburb of London. The store assistant chasing them explained he was not allowed to follow around the corner. By time I had realised what I had seen they were well past me but I wish I had been able to trip one up. Sadiq Khan what are you doing about overt crime on our streets and BBC why are you not holding Sadiq to account? I read today in the Telegraph that Sadiq has authorised 40,000 free travel passes for friends and family of Transport for London workers. The cost could have put 500 extra police on our streets. We could have done with them today in north London.

    I was just watching some historical programmes about the last days of Ceaucescu , the Roumanian ( Romanian , Rumanian ) dictator .
    The state television was always instructed to pan towards the specially selected audience members who would applaud enthusiastically at the leaders speech . Then pan out to show the great throng of people appreciating by whoops of joy and clapping what Dear Leader or whoever was in favour was saying .
    Not half as good as a rigged Question Time or Any Questions audience though .

      Ceausescu thought he was loved by the people, thought he had the country under tight control with his secret policy and security apparatus, and apparently was genuinely surprised at the events of December when he found out that the people didn’t actually want to live in a totalitarian state. Presumably being shot by a firing squad was also something of a surprise for him, too. Not even being awarded the Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath by our own monarch – a nice complement to his Order of Lenin and Order of Karl Marx – was enough to save him. Our own politicians should ponder their own possible fate when the people themselves decide that “Enough is Enough”.

        Nick Ferrari had John McDonnell on earlier this morning, telling us that a future Labour government would force companies to allocate 10% of their shares ( for publicly listed companies, though he said that after they’ve achieved this, they will do the same to privately owned companies) to their workforce.

        This is blatant theft. Of course Mr Ferrari didn’t pull him up on this. Communists always want to steal the wealth of others; they may dress it up in new clothes but their objective never changes.

        They are intent on abolishing private property and if you vote for them that’s what you’ll get; they’ll target the large companies first but once that has been achieved they will come after individual wealth; they’ll take your house, your savings, your pension, everything. Then we’ll all have to go cap in hand to the state and beg for hand outs; and God help you if they don’t like you because you will get nothing.

          eg if you work in a Starbucks , you don’t work for the Big Starbucks you work for a franchisee or Starbucks UK, StarbucksCorp makes its money from selling rights to Starbucks UK and claims it therefore doesn’t have any profits in the UK and doesn’t have to pay tax in the UK.

    Since last week’s Countryfile story on the coming climate change Carrotastrophe
    I pulled up the official DEFRA data on wholesale carrot prices
    Of the 27 weeks counted so far in 2018 vs 2015 .. graphs
    The first week started 20% higher than 2015 ..and it continued through to last week also 20% higher
    ..There was just a couple of quick blips up at the end of the dry spell.
    =======================================

    Then I find the BBC story : Food prices ‘to rise 5%’ because of extreme weather
    It quoted a thinktank the Centre for Economics and Business Research CEBR

    This, along with a “wet, cold and challenging” winter, particularly the cold spell caused by the Beast from the East, has put stress on farming costs and yields, CEBR said.

    “Wholesale prices of other vegetables have already soared by up to 80% since the start of the year.”
    ……
    As a result, it said:
    Wholesale vegetable prices had jumped between March and July, with … carrots by 80%
    *(only after 6 edit versions did it quote carrots as the 80% thing)

    Strange cos in 2015 carrots also went up 80% in the same period
    Come to think of it , it’s like the way after Spring new potatoes come in at a premium price whereas previously at the end of winter they’ve been flogging you cheap old potatoes they’ve been storing all winter
    Doh ! of course July carrots are 80% pricier than March carrots, cos they are not cheap old carrots they’ve been storing.

    I like Sopel because he provides evidence of bias very readily because of his visceral hatred for President Trump. I still feel for his health cum the next election .

    The Guardian today, full of “The people’s vote”.
    In case anyone has forgotten, this is why we voted to leave.
    Referendum, repeat until we get the “correct” result.

    If necessary the EU will move the goalposts and invent another treaty.
    Or remove elected ministers, to be replaced by one of their own.
    “Whatever it takes”, even if the “whatever” is Greek penury for seventy years.
    Or 50% youth unemployment in the Iberian peninsula.
    Or two million “new” voters in Germany.

    The same EU that Dave, the traitor, Cameron, assured us would never have Turkey as a member, but which restarted negotiations with, err, remind me, with Turkey two weeks after our vote for freedom.

    The same EU that Nick, the traitor, Clegg, assured us was happy with NATO and would not create its own military forces, which announced plans for a EU army, two weeks after our vote for freedom.

    This, of course, is the EU method, lies 24/7/365.
    Anything evil today in Europe was caused, almost always deliberately, by the EU.

    So any action which weakens the EU is obligatory and commendable.

    I notice we’re coming into the silly season where dopey people do daft humiliating stunts for ‘charity’. And the BBC attempt to promote and encourage their antics.

    Personally I regard children encouraged into shaving their hair off by cancer charities both demeaning and somewhat sinister. What next, get people to shave and also wear pyjamas to work for a joint fund-rasier for cancer and Holocaust Remembrance?

    This morning BBC Breakfast are fawning over some bloke whose 7-year old daughter died recently coming up with the spiffingly amusing fund-raising notion of riding her miniature pink bicycle 200 miles to Land’s End.

    To me this stooping, degrading behaviour looks very much like late stage civilisational moral stagnation. Because the typical participant in these embarrassing escapades are middle-aged bourgeois men with nothing better to do other than signal their virtue alongside their lack of actual male vitality.

    Our proper reaction to a grown man’s self-debasing action of wobbling along on a child’s bike ought to be bemusement and shame.

    I recall a scene from the clownish comedy movie It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World from 1963. Desperate to reach the hidden treasure first one of the racers, who happens to be a burly truck driver, after losing his vehicle is reduced to riding a child’s cycle.

    Phil Silvers delivers the proper response to such a sight:
    “Hey, what’s with the kiddie’s bike, are you some kind of a nut?”

        The phrase “Egged on” brings to my mind the ridiculously overblown furore the other week about the use of the phrase “Whiter than white” and how this was used by the BBC to further promote its own pernicious agenda.

        The phrase cropped up, among others, in the article with the question, presented as rhetorical, about whether this phrase could also ever be misinterpreted as the language of racism. What the BBC then did was to give tenuous grounds as to why the phrase could be objected to, in this case, if turned into rhyming slang, egg and spoon. By its words, the BBC presented itself as being on the side of reason. By its actions it gave fuel to the PC brigade to declare as out of bounds yet another innocuous everyday phrase of common parlance.

    I was lucky to end up in a job I enjoyed, and was good at.

    It was also professionally demanding, and to succeed was not easy, but the rewards made the effort worthwhile.

    Then I look at Professional Politics today. The rewards are clear, financially at least. And if on a power trip. Or if with an overwhelming degree of self importance.

    Which explains if not excuses the calibre of politician we are cursed with today. Almost all are crushingly thick, or venal, or both, with an added coating of rhino hide to become immune to any embarrassment or shame.

    And supposedly holding them to account are the market rate talents of the BBC. Educated no doubt, but also mostly as thick or venal, or both.

    Look at the bug-eyed excitement of a Robinson, or the gushing twaddle of Laura K as they feel they are in the presence of historic greatness when chatting with a Butler, Soubry or Clegg.

    Not so much ‘to help’ but instead ‘brainwash’ the kids. Her opening line in the video is “Imagine your camping trip wasn’t in one place, you were camping across different countries across Europe and nobody likes you.”

    For the Many, Not the Few is a divisive slogan. It creates a line between two sets of people and is a moveable line that has no definition. Ask all Labour MPs to give a definition of who is in the Many side and who is in the Few side.
    For the Many …. is it based on number of homes (Keith Vaz has 9)?
    For the Many … is it based on wages, MP’s earn 77K.
    For the Many … is it based on pay rise, MPs had an 18% pay rise since 2010.

    I now forget the commentator and the exact circumstance but I do remember being both amused and dismayed by that statement from some years ago, probably heard on Radio 4, which at once both typified and charicatured for me our modern media-cultural-political commentariat.

    I know my evidential source for this quote sounds about as elastic in time and place as the Democrat-inspired sexual allegation against Judge Kavanaugh (look it up), but there we go…

    Anyway, the phrase popped into my head again with the supposed timely revelation that Comrade Corbyn had eventualy bowed to the Three B’s – Brussels, Blairites and BBC pressure and come to love the EU. Probably in his own adolescent political mind he’ll feign support for Referendum Rerun the Sequal simply for political advantage. Need I say more.

    Don’t get called Islamophobic … let the FGM continue.

    Today’s case is only the third time that charges of FGM have been brought to court. The two previous cases both resulted in acquittals, meaning that THERE HAS NOT BEEN A SINGLE FGM CONVICTION in the UK despite it being illegal in this country since 1985.

    Official figures show that thousands of Londoners have suffered FGM. Many were subjected to the practice overseas years ago, but campaigners continue to argue that girls are being mutilated here or taken abroad to be cut.

    A lack of willingness among victims, family members and friends to alert the authorities has hindered prosecution efforts in the past. In recent years schools, the NHS and social workers have been under an obligation to report suspected offences.

    The problem with the BBC like with the European Union is that they are unaccountable: you take it or leave it and they will collect the money regardless. My boy’s teacher has not been up to scratch so we complained and now he has modified his behaviour accordingly. We must all be accountable as otherwise your performance can slip. Complain about the BBC and they sneer, say you suffer from an imaginary mental illness and plough on regardless. It is how we get to the absurd position where an ‘offensive’ tweet is a big news story and they can openly despise our greatest ally in President Trump. If they relied on voluntary subscriptions rather than a legally enforced ‘licence’ they would sort themselves out immediately.

    I wonder how many would actually pay for the BBC if it went subscription only? It is so absolutely the envy of the world so why not try it?

    1765 …. **In a republic worthy of name, freedom to publish one ’s thoughts is a citizen’s natural right.** They may use a pen or their voice, and should not be prevented from writing any more than speaking …That is the law in England, a monarchical country, where people are freer than elsewhere because they are more enlightened. – Voltaire, Republican Ideas, 1765

    2018 … In addition to reporting hate crime, please report non-crime hate incidents, **which can include things like offensive or insulting comments, online, in person or in writing**. Hate will not be tolerated in South Yorkshire. Report it and put a stop to it #HateHurtsSY – UK South Yorkshire Police, 2018

    Facebook “Hurty-Feelings” Police
    Ah now on LBC Maajid Nawaz is now covering this issue.
    The new head of the Police Federation has said ‘No, we want to police real crime’

    Common sense policing has “gone out of the window” with officers forced to spend their time intervening in trivial social media disputes rather than attending burglaries and other serious crimes, the new head of the Police Federation has said.

    John Apter, who represents 120,000 rank and file officers across England and Wales, said his members were “incredibly frustrated” because they felt were no longer able to do the job they had signed up to do.

    Rather than attending burglaries and helping to prevent soaring levels of violence, police officers were often being deployed to sort out petty arguments on Facebook and Twitter, he said.

    He was on Ian Payne’s LBC show yesterday ..it’s strange I can find no audio of this

    @UKIP will get rid of the Hate Crime Law which will free up a lot of time and money for the police.
    We have laws that cover attacks and threats towards somebody.
    Hate Crime Law requires no evidence to charge somebody with a crime this is wrong –
    police should support repealing.

        The vast majority of those on the left openly and proudly hate Trump, Jews, Capitalists, Brexiteers, Farage, Tommy Robinson, Boris Johnson, all true Conservatives, white men, Christians…. the list of hate is endless, the left are so filled with hate. Their entire movement is bound together by hatred of who ever they perceive as an oppressor. Hate is all they seem to have right now. Hatred and prejudice are not only weapons accepted by the left they openly encourage it every single day……

        ..and thats the issue. Who and what we fight for is subjective. What we find offensive is subjective. Who we believe are victims, who are oppressors is subjective. What we believe is acceptable and what we believe should be done about it are again subjective…..this is why to those who agree with whats being surpressed are happy and those who do not feel outraged.

        In the entire history of mankind, the West uniquely has come up with a solution to this problem of offense and responsibility..individualism! Everyone has an equal view and should be allow to air and speak their views, however against the consensus those views are. In return of that feedom to say what we want others can freely rebute and challenge back. This is whats called A FUCKING DEBATE/ARGUMENT!!

        We all know what happens in an argument when there is hatred involved…that Person does not want to listen and only wants to win, doing whatever is required. This is where we are at right now in our political debate. The vast majority of those on the left hate us, so they are doing whatever is required to win. What better way to prevent rebuttal and challenges than to criminalise it.

        The left hate. They anticipate hatred in response to their agenda and from projection of their own hatred. These laws are nothing more of using politics and the law to stop those in power being held to account. They have no reason or justification and no argument to the destruction they are causing to our way of life…so why even bother to argue when you can criminalise and prevent the debate/discussion/argument from even taking place

      Their increased lack of public respect is partly their own fault, because they will insist in adapting their uniforms and vehicles with rainbow accoutrements, and mincing around in parades.

      If the rank and file insisted on retaining their decorum, and refused to participate in such cringeworthy stunts, they just might be more favourably regarded by the public, at large.

      But it is a long way back to normality…

        Sadly the crunch will come the next time a copper gets killed on duty when joe public doesn’t produce the level of sympathy once displayed . I understood it was meant to be done ‘by consent’ but now – with non crime hate crime teams going after non criminals they leave themselves open to allegations of oppression by any one who calls them .

        The body camera would prevent me interacting at all with them – although the only evidence of their existence is the constant sound of sirens of their bloody helicopter – and of course the police tape – two incidents on my door step in the last 7 days …. murder and serious hit and run

        The MSM will judge guilt before any proceedings and no one in the CPS will have the courage not to prosecute . Sad days

          And on the police subject al beeb is trumpeting that The Bodyguard got more viewers than anything since 2008.

          Strange really that a programme showing the police in a good light should be celebrated by an outfit which has despised the old bill since Softly Softly –

    As with every other sentient being in this entire country, I can of course not function until I get my morning BBC email.

    ***
    ‘All options open’
    Labour Brexit vote
    Brexit is essentially the only big issue where Jeremy Corbyn is in conflict with Labour Party members….

    [errrrr…. nothing else?]

    Read Laura Kuenssberg’s thoughts on the whole thing –

    [She does have lots of ‘thoughts’]

    and some of the policies Mr Corbyn would probably rather be talking about this week, like a plan to force firms to give workers shares and a ban on new academy schools.

    [The BBC seems very comfortable with compulsion when it suits the narrative]

    Judge accused again [no sh*t, Sherlock, and Katty is in like Flint]

    The choice of a new justice for the US Supreme Court is pivotal – as this article explains – and can have an immense impact on public life. Donald Trump’s pick for the current vacant seat, Brett Kavanaugh, was accused last week of sexually assaulting a woman in 1982. Now a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, has come forward with further allegations of sexual misconduct against him. He has denied both claims, labelling the latest “a smear”.

    Mr Kavanaugh’s first accuser, Prof Christine Blasey Ford, has agreed to testify at a Senate committee hearing on Thursday. President Trump has questioned why she didn’t report the allegation at the time – sparking an outpouring from thousands of women on social media under the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport.

    [All driven be a media a bit shy on the full story].

    Plus: Five other things to know for the week ahead.

    1. Vote Labour
    2. Vote Labour
    3. Vote Labour
    4. Vote Labour
    5. Vote Labour… and cancel Brexit.

    I sought a bit of music to keep me company in the garage at the weekend so I tried Radio 3.

    Well it started off OK then it became all about a female composer of film music, except that she claimed she wasn’t, and how nearly all the female members of her family suffered from mental illness. Next up was another woman who waved a stick about. She sounded like she might have been a lady of colour too. She had suffered greatly because someone told her a long time ago that it was OK for her to play a piano and somehow that prevented her from waving a stick.
    It wouldn’t surprise me if both of these women have ‘wives’, I didn’t stay to find out. I just wanted some ‘good’ music, I don’t care what the age, sex or race of the composer is.

    I got stopped by a local BBC cadre in my town centre over the weekend, desperate for proles to ‘interview’ about the closure of House of Fraser in the town centre. She started babbling about the loss of jobs in the city centre retail sector, but I had to intervene and pointed out that the argument is a bit more ‘nuanced’ than that.

    The creation of very large out-of-town distribution hubs for online sales is never talked about much. What about all the job creation there – and most of it going to blue-collar workers (warehouse staff, forklift drivers, truck drivers, etc).

    She seemed surprised. My work was done. I have no idea if the filmed interview will make it to air. Somehow, I doubt it.
