Was British broadcaster Trevor MacDonald auditioning for the next John Cleese movie when he offered the following rejoinder in an interview he just did with President Bush for ITV’s “Tonight”?

TONIGHT: But pollution in this country has increased amazingly since 1992.

PRESIDENT BUSH: That is a totally inaccurate statement.

TONIGHT: It’s a UN figure.
