Host: Their admirers spanned the generation gap and 1965 they were all awarded the MBE.
Lennon later returned he is in protest at Britain’s support of American involvement in Vietnam.
John Lennon: Of a protest against violence and especially Britain’s involvement of the Afra which most the British public are unaware of, did all the press, TV and radios, slammed all the news from the Afra. All the stuffs I learned from the Afra from journalist up to—is a different story and I began to be ashamed of being British. And I am now a patriotic nationalist hence the truth for now, and Yoko can vouch for that. Britain invented radar and all the different things we’ve done. So everyday I just begun to worry a bit more about it and I was going to send the MBE back anyway. I could have done it privately but the press is going to find out anyway you would have been here a week later instead, less impact.
Tony: Yoko’s influence on John was nothing short of phenomenal. She gave him the ability and the courage, probably the courage more than anything else to go out there and do exactly what you wanted to do. Express yourself, doesn’t matter whether you got criticized for it, doesn’t matter what the other people wanted to judge for you because they did not have any right to judge you for it but she was the one that said this is the I am going to press your buttons you got it go do it and he did it.
Interviewer: Will you now stop speaking out against the war because
John Lennon: No, I—nothing will stop me and whether I am here or whatever I may be.
Tony: The great thing that John Lennon had was his ability to speak exactly how he felt. He did not hand it to people he was not a diplomat like Paul McCartney was.
Interviewer: John why are you been deported?
John Lennon: Well, there is a sort of an official reason there is something about we overstayed so that’s the reason enough to throw us out. The other official reason is that I was—in England for and the real reason is because I am a peacemaker.
Yoko: What the immigration was asking me to do really is to take a decision on whether choosing my husband or my child and they—hoosing to be in.
