Interviewees are supposed to answer questions thrown at them by Interviewers. In some cases they have to overcome nerves to deliver the right responses. Some even walk out on the interview, not in this unique case.

In fact the situation showed how a combination of humour and deftness can save the day in a tense interview situation. And compares with when the Shadow Business Secretary and Member of Parliament for Streatham, Chuka Umunna MP walked out on a Sky News interview.
For a moment, it almost seemed it would wreck the interview, but when an MP asks a TV Host on live TV "What's Wrong With You?", the worst was averted, and the question seemingly did no harm.
Sky News' Kay Burley took it lightly and progressed the interview despite being told by Brent Central MP Dawn Butler "Don't tell me he did not say so because he did, What's Wrong With You?"
The MP was asked, in what became the third time, to say whether she believed that Jeremy Corbyn, one of the contenders for the Labour Leadership, would win. The MP representing Brent Central insisted that she nominated the Jeremy Corbyn in order to create a wider forum for a debate and ensure the best candidate wins to become the next Labour Leader.
Asked if she thought Former PM, Tony Blair should get involved with the modern Labour Party considering his recent comments with regards to the leadership contest, Dawn Butler MP said she did not quite agree with everything former PM was reported to have said, although, she said, she had not heard everything he said recently about the Leadership contest which appeared set to go in favour of Jeremy Corbyn.
But she maintained the the former PM, who won general elections three times beore handing over the reigns to Gordon Brown had the right, like every other citizen, to have a say on what happens in the Labour Party. She said Tony Blair has one vote, like the rest of the members.
Asked if she thought the current process of chosen a new Leader for the Labour Party was the right one, she said she believed it was the right one because they are having a debate - a deep-rooted debate - to ensure the party is in a position to win in 2020.
Asked if she thought some of the contestant should have dropped out of the contest, she said it was up to the individual candidates to make such decision.
