downs I you know
in an audience I've minutes I think it's now about 10 million it'll roll up to
about 12 when they take in all the i pissing think it ninety people around
and over 11 million
whatever it is are okay I mean
I want them to be unhappy I don't want this to be a minor event in the history
up the show this is a character we love who's been
seriously attacked and the response should be
unhappiness and I hope involvement and I hope as she makes this
you know to use Tony Blair's word "journey" a
that we will follow her through that Jen and I and I hope it is
useful and helpful as well as interesting I'm

the middle level
that and you're trying to do what's right but you're also very shocked and
very hurt
you know when I i and I hope if it's not too ambitious to say
that how Anna deals with it will be useful I mean if we help one person and
it's with I'm
