Throckmorton: Brian Houston interviewed the Driscolls after all [?]

Nothing to add but, certainly, it's curious that Houston decided to interview the Driscolls after all having made such a public show of saying he had changed his mind about that.

Read the statement that was given three weeks ago. Houston said Driscoll would "no longer be coming to Australia or the UK to attend Hillsong Conference". One wouldn't have noticed it at the time, but the statement was carefully worded to keep the door open to show an interview on video. They stopped the protests at the time, they saved themselves any risk of having him on-site (a risk the statement acknowledged), but they still had their 30-minute interview.

fair enough, which reminds me of a bit in a Star Trek film where Spock says "I implied." The cancellation may just have been the implication/inference drawn from coverage rather than what actually was planned.
