Since she ran into unexpectedly tough questioning on BBC TV’s Andrew Marr show last Sunday (tough in the sense that Mar actually asked her questions instead of just letting her sit there while he told her how wonderful she is, Hillary has been cancelling and simply missing scheduled press and radio interviews and TV appearances in Britain all week.
