A great moment on Jordanian television. Two political figures debating and trading insults on live TV, then one of them snaps, firstly throwing his shoe then pulling out a gun to threaten his opponent.
Two things surprise me about this footage. Firstly to see how crap the TV studio is – when the table gets flipped it looks like it is made of cardboard – and secondly that both the presenter and the opponent seem to be angry but quite unafraid of the gun, perhaps this is common occurrence in Jordan? I’m quite sure I would have legged it out of there, or found some way to calm things down, or just wet myself, but the other guy continues to square up to him. Bravery or stupidity? You decide.
