husband is a really great dad...

- There's been a power cut...

Alright? My alarm hasn't gone off.

Come on. Even you can't blame me for that.

-Robert, I'm talking to daddy.

- No one. Look, please, can you

just stall them or

something for me?

up a signal jammer.

anybody contradicting

the official story, would they?

-Who are they?

-Don't know, man.

Our government

or at least the unelected

corporations who control it.
