“I’m here as a press person,” he explained, adding: “Do you imagine they’d let me in otherwise?! See how long it lasts before I get kicked out.”
Yorke also voiced his concern about the outcomes of the conference, which are expected to be announced today (December 18).
“I hope that they can at least get the basics sorted out,” he said. “It’s a lot of uptight, middle-aged men doing the negotiations that need to see through their particular little spheres of self-interest and look at the bigger picture.”
