Craig Reucassel interviews comedy genius Sacha Baron Cohen in character as his latest creation: climate skeptic Lord Christopher Monckton

From boingboing:

Australian comedy-news program The Hamster Wheel covers archconservative British politician Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, a Thatcherite climate denier, and former editor for The Sunday Telegraph and other right-wing papers. The Hamster Wheel decides that Monckton (who once advocated confining people with AIDS to lifetime quarantine) must actually be a long-running Sacha Baron Cohen (“Bruno,” “Borat”) character and makes a compelling case that this must be so.

    Other sites say that he is a real — though ridiculous — person and is being punked by this interviewer.

    Monckton does seem too ridiculous to be believed. However if he is a Cohen character, then they’ve done a really remarkable job of building internet citations, etc. to support his ‘reality’.

    Still not as good as the APEC stunt they did

    No, it’s not Cohen. I was at school (Harrow) with him and his brother Tim. He’s the real Viscount Monckton.
