BBC: We would be more than willing to pay the $5M but the public corporation would be adverse to sending in another reporter due to this happening again. Abbas: I assure you! I assure you! I most fervently assure you it will not happen again!! BBC: The BBC respects the word of the honorable President from whose lips a lie is impossible but I am taking about a public institution. For us at the BBC your word alone is more than enough. But there are others. Abbas: Who? Who? I will tell them. I will go to London! I will do anything! BBC: You understand that not sending a reporter to replace Johnson means we cannot continue the good work we are doing for palestinians and will have to write our stories from Manchester and Bolton. That is no real problem as we have all the facts already but some may bring that to the attention of readers... Abbas: I trust you. I trust you. I will see...maybe we can trick the Americans or Israelis into paying.. BBC: Excellent. Brillant.
