Transcript of Newstalk ZB interview with Bill Hodge
I don't see it on the transcript, but I heard Bill say on the interview "we always had our suspicions about this jury". Taking the natural meaning of those words, I would think "we" includes Bill Hodge.
Yes, that is in the transcript. Have a look in the paragraph beginning " Well, first of all he is right on the edge of what would have been a mistrial..."
Yes I noticed that - very pointed the possibility of a retrial.
I understood the 'we' as meaning the population at large and Bill Hodge as an American is not going to use the Royal WE in the royal context.
