The man who doesn’t blink

Posted in: Miscellany

I’ve been watching Liam Donaldson (the Government’s Chief Medical Officer) for a number of years on TV. In fact I really look forward to seeing him.

Each time I watch him interviewed I am amazed by him. Why am I fascinated by this Whitehall mandarin? Well because he hardly ever blinks. It is spooky to watch. I blink after about 5 seconds. Watch this ITN news interview with him – it lasts about 50 seconds and he doesn’t blink once! It is edited I but I have seen him talk for over a minute before without blinking.
