Hypophora (or anthypophora)

Raising questions and answering them yourself.

“You ask, what is our policy?  I will say: It is to wage war, by sea, land, and air, with all our might and all the strength that God can give us;  to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalog of human crime.  That is our policy.  You ask, what is our aim?  I can answer in one word: Victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror; victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.”  (Winston Churchill, 13 May 1940)

What a lot of political interviewees do on The Today Programme to prevent John, Sarah, Edward, Carolyn or James raising any.
