There is an interesting vignette in last night’s episode:
One of the jurors is having to personate her boss, Theresa Vestry who couldn’t be bothered to do jury duty as she was busy clinching a big deal over her business. We are given the strong impression that the boss is very self-centred and greedy.
Yesterday the personatrix was trying to get the views of her boss in order to try and “vote” as her boss would do at the trial.
She asks her boss four “test” questions to assess her morality:
1. “Global Warming: myth or reality?” Boss answers (after prevarication) – “Myth”.
2. “USA, world leader or world scourge?” Boss answers – “Leader”.
3. “Should doctors assist suicide on compassionate grounds? Yes or No?” Boss answers: “No.”
Assistant says, “You have scored zero.”
This is a clear case of subtle propaganda.
