Lord Monckton in Canberra today More on Monckton

Lord Monckton running rings around 666 ABC Canberra’s Ross Solly

February 3rd, 2010 at 12:14pm

Lord Monckton appeared on 666 ABC Canberra’s breakfast show with Ross Solly after 8:30 this morning and I thought Lord Monckton ran rings around Ross. Ross was mostly fair in the interview but it was pretty clear who had a better grasp of the facts. I did feel sorry for Ross a couple times when he struggled to get words in at points where I thought Lord Monckton’s answers were already sufficient, but that was balanced by my annoyance at Ross’ obsession with who Lord Monckton is meeting, which I feel cost the audience some participation time.

The interview is up on the new 666 ABC Canberra website or can be downloaded directly by clicking here. I’m not going to embed the audio in this page as I intend on being fair to the ABC.

I didn’t hear it yesterday as I was engrossed in work at the time, but Lord Monckton apparently appeared on 2CC’s Mike Welsh Drive Show. If and when that audio appears on their website (and when I notice it, considering that I’ll be out for much of the afternoon) I’ll post a link to that interview as well.

    Twice in that interview Ross Solly called himself “small-brained”, and on neither occasion did Lord Monckton step in to offer solace. Illuminating. Then again, if my interlocutor insists on hoisting himself by his own petard, let him so do, I say!
