  1. Ken Clarke (1), April 1997

    Certainty level: 30%

    The first of two video segments from the same program, this shows
    Jon Snow interviewing Ken Clarke in April 1997, during the general
    election campaign. The following exchange is heard;

    Jon Snow: "You say we are booming in your posters, the bust's around the corner"

    Ken Clarke: "You took that from three years ago, when I was being
    advised to do all kinds of mad things to stimulate the economy,
    and being told that I had to take desperate measures to get it going"

    At this time I was watching television almost continuously at home,
    with a video recorder whirring away, trying to obtain from the
    newscasters a reaction which would give them away. I think this is an
    instance where it happened. Ken Clarke first darts a glance straight at
    the video camera (and perhaps at a monitor next to it showing my living
    room), then comes out with "all kinds of mad things", while engaging in a
    facial display involving raising of eyebrows and lowering of eyelids.
    To me at the time, and also now, it looked as if he was selecting a
    context into which he could drop the word "mad" as a directed insult against me.
