Can Iain Convince This Woman To Accept Facts On Syria? Er, No.
Iain Dale meets a woman who just will not accept that Assad was behind last week's devastating chemical attack in Syria.
...but will she accept Iain's answers?
Nadia said she had been waiting a while for someone to phone Iain Dale and make the points she wanted to. When they didn't, she picked up the phone - although after this exchange with Iain, she may have wished she hadn't.
Refusing to accept that Bashar al-Assad was behind the chemical strike that horrified the world last week, Nadia just would not listen to any of the expert testimony or evidence that Iain offered.
Nadia asked: "George Michael's autopsy took three months to tell us how he died. Why is it everyone is jumping to conclusions about Assad when we don't have independent proof?"
"You seem to be quite happy everything that Assad said, but you don't believe anything the Americans say," Iain told her.
From there, Nadia's claims got even more outlandish, touching upon Iraq, Dr David Kelly, Internet conspiracy theories and more.
