Ah brilliant. I was never a Conrad Black fan before but I might be after watching that ... "priggish, gullible, British fool". Paxman more than met his match.

Paxman, the BBC heavy hitter who saw nothing amiss in the BBC. Paxman, who cut his teeth explaining away British atrocities in the 6 cos. Lert someone interrogate this British twit on why Savile passed him by,
He got his teeth knocked out there by Black.

saw it last night, great come back by Conrad. Interesting article by him last year

Conrad Black: America's Justice System Has Failed Us All


But Mr. Webb accurately summarizes some of the problem is America's incarceration of six to 12 times as many people per capita as other advanced, prosperous democracies (Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom). Either, as he wrote in his essay, "Criminal Injustice," these other countries don't care about crime, which is nonsense (and they all have lower crime rates than the U.S.), or Americans are uniquely addicted to committing crimes, which is also nonsense, or the American system has broken down. Bingo.

The United States has five per cent of the world's population, 25 per cent of the world's incarcerated people, and 50 per cent of the world's lawyers (who account for nearly 10 per cent of the country's GDP, an onerous taxation of American society).

Strange to hear Black talking like a socialist worker. I certainly don't remember any articles about the iniquities of the US justice system in the Telegraph when he owned it

I will say this. Cheryl is prettier than Black.

Is the interviewer available in the Republic through official channels?

The mountebank deserved his time in jail. Like all of these types he full of self pity and blames everyone else for his travails. Great article here by Henry Porter in last week's Observer.
Conrad Black, have I got news for you

Compare this to the numerous fawning pieces by that skank Ruth Dudley Edwards.

Ruth Dudley Edwards: I'm over the moon as Conrad Black's courage in the face of adversity pays off - Ruth Dudley Edwards, Columnists - Independent.ie

Ruth Dudley Edwards: Black confident he's ahead of the rest - Ruth Dudley Edwards, Columnists - Independent.ie

Can the interview be watched in full without resorting to torrents? I think realised the answer to my question. Its all there in the link.

Black's brass neck is something else.
