Talking to Brian Lehrer TV

1 Comment

I’ve given an interview about this blog – and what happened after my post about Bradley Manning & P J Crowley. It’s part of a programme with New York TV host Brian Lehrer called “Citizens cover the Uprisings”. I apologise in advance for alarming any viewers by being scarily close up to the camera on Skype, and gosh do I really have such a terribly British accent?

  1. Well maybe PJ used you ‘on record’ to make two points (i) he disapproved and you gave him an indirect (yea right!) way of saying so (ii) he wanted out.
    By the way, you only sound posh when you say ‘gosh’ and ‘terribly’ otherwise it’s the voice and not the accent that we hear (and a delightful voice it is too).
