I gave a live telephone interview at about 7:35 this morning.

Now this is interesting. The local camera partnership have claimed that some of their magic cameras have reduced crashes by 80%.

So I called it a 'fraud' again and again and again. The presenter was pretty seriously uncomfortable. I said - 'let them sue me'. I also offered to meet them on-air later on.

It was a good interview, but I do lack a certain sparkle when I've just woken up... :)

Once uploaded, should be available to listen again for one day at;

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/networks ... bentham_hw

Howard Bentham, The best start to the day - news, sport, travel and laughter.

Fri 28 Sep, 06:00 - 09:00 180 mins

On at 1hr 33mins into the programme

Paul certainly got Howard hot under the collar. He didn't know what to say, so tried to cut Paul off.

Howard questioned if Paul had evidence and was quickly put straight. He chalenged Paul to face the SCP on air, so Paul agreed to the chalenge and Howard furiously tried to back-peddle.

Hehe that was quite funny, at least he gave Paul lots of time to put his point forward and didn't keep cutting him off.

Go get 'em Paul! A short but sweet interview. As you've already said, it's time to get angry, and frankly I think that the word "fraud" is too nice.

Err...did you mean posterity? Or were you referring to the means by which the SCP and Howard Bentham were talking? ;)

Well done Paul - impressive, especially at such an hour!

I've recorded as an MP3 file (3.85MB) if anyone would like a copy.
