You're an ambitious man, obviously, self-made,
but I think you need a case of this profile to prove yourself.
So it would be MUTUALLY beneficial, if you think about it.
Shall we make a start?
I apologise. I wasn't sure if I needed an appointment, Milady.
It's just as well. You wouldn't have got one, Reverend.
I won't keep you long.
I'm assuming you've been asked to speak on behalf of the Mottersheads?
I know you're a...
Is this some sort of attempt to scare me off?
No, not at all. I just wanted you to be aware
that the appeal is likely to be a candid affair.
Everyone in Upton knows my business by now. It's hardly a secret.
Yes, no, but it's the Mottersheads that YOU'LL damage by association.
Isn't it better just to stay out of it?
Why is it so important to raise your head above the parapet
for Mottershead of all people?
I could ask you the same.
Why go out on a limb and make such an effort to stop a man like George?
He pushes his luck. He...
ignores the wishes of the majority,
he blindly pursues his own will.
-You may find that heroic. -I do.
Well, I find it selfish in the extreme,
especially in one who purports to be a family man,
then goes gallivanting around London with a single woman of questionable moral judgment.
Wish me luck, fellas.
Right, there's fresh straw in the small stable.
There's your list.
And the baby penguin needs feeding every four hours.
Are you sure this is a good idea?
They're animals, Lucy! How hard can it be?
只是动物而已 Lucy! 能有多难啊?
It's not them I'm worried about.
Just stick to the list, Billy.
And no deviations or improvisations.
We've got enough to worry about at the hearing.
Have you got that, Billy?
Aye, if it's a fight they want, they've got it.
What's he doing here?
-Lizzie, you went to him behind my back? -We need his help.
-Lizzie 你背着我去找他了? -我们需要他的帮助
The hell we do! He's not getting a penny of my money.
It's too important to you.
You'll get all worked up and play right into their hands.
I have to do this.
We can't trust you, George.
I'll wait for you in the van, then.
Just some housekeeping before we begin.
Each side will get a chance to speak and to cross-examine evidence.
This is not a court of law,
but I expect every man and woman to stand on their honour.
Mr Tipping, would you like to start us off, please?
'I stand before you today
'representing the proud people of Upton,
'a community threatened by 'an ill-conceived scheme to build a zoo without bars...'
Noisy little herberts, those two, aren't they?
-Is it just you? -Yeah, everyone else is at the hearing
-只有你一个人? -是啊 大家都去听证会了
so they've left me in charge.
Hey, don't be like that!
I've got me list, I've got me overalls, I've got me bucket.
我有清单 工作服 水桶 都在这了
You can help me if you like.
Yeah, I'll go and empty this,
you can worm Sidney.
The Women's Institute is committed to maintaining a certain standard in rural life.
Upton is, and should remain, a piece of pure English countryside,
which is good for the body and mind.
Thank you, Mrs Pollard.
I'm not averse to a zoo, just not in Upton.
After all, what's a planning committee for
if not to weed out unsuitable developments?
We had our say and he doesn't like it.
Mr Fenchwood, as the Mottersheads' bank manager,
how would you best describe their business dealings?
Are they prompt with their monthly mortgage payments?
Not prompt, no...
but I get the money... eventually.
And presumably you wouldn't trust them with an overdraft facility?
I'd trust them, but they'd be considered a risk by the bank.
That's what it says here.
You can supposedly tell by the bigger spikes round the cheeks.
Queenie's not a queen, she's a king.
That must have been a shock for her!
How do you think they're getting on?
-What's the matter? -I forgot to feed the penguin!
Dr Ford, would it be fair to say that you are predisposed to Chester Zoo,
to the Mottershead family, in fact?
I find George Mottershead an impressive individual, yes.
是的 我觉得George Mottershead是个了不起的人
Then why did you sign a petition against the proposed development?
