Look at Jeffrey’s reaction when Chris Peregin of The Times asks him about the illicit recordings used by the Labour Party. Jeffrey was ready to take the question and bang on ad nauseam as always until he realised what it’s about.
Look at the way his facial expression changes before he backs off. Why wouldn’t he have anything to say about something like that, when he has so much to say about so much else?
He scuttled away saying “Dak li kelli nghid, diga ghidtu”, as though he is somehow averse to repeating everything a hundred times over in different forums. He so very obviously wanted to avoid the question that he gave himself away completely at that point.
He behaved like a Humbert Humbert running away from awkward questions about pubescent girls. The normal reaction would be to take the question and rspond with real or fake indignation to any suggestion of undesirable behaviour, rather than run away.
Jeffrey, running away from the cameras? When did that ever happen?
Someone as supposedly media savvy as he is should know the accepted meaning of ‘no comment’ or its equivalent.
