Do you have a favourite charity or cause?
Legalise cannabis – well all drugs really but start with cannabis. And I don’t even smoke anymore. The war on drugs has been a disaster. It can never be won and fighting it does far more harm than good.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
Buy a big fat Bentley and a house in Hampstead. Wait, this is going public? Err, give it away to children’s charities.
Do you have a ‘party trick’? What is it?
I can juggle. Always a sign of spending far too long in India.
What was the last thing you cried about?
Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I know!
Do you have a secret reality TV addiction? IF SO, CONFESS NOW!
I used to love Big Brother, series 1 the most. Nasty Nick, Craig who gave his entire winnings – all £70,000 of it – to a friend so they could have a heart and lung transplant, the fact they had no idea just how many people were watching. Fantastic stuff.
I’ve also been known to mount a vigorous defence of Big Brother (essential in helping reinforce society’s norms when church, family, state no longer carry as much influence). However, I am bit bored of it now. Sorry Sharon.
What are the tope 5 tunes on your i-tunes playlist?
Cleverly wiped my entire playlist history recently but remember that number 1 used to be Orbital’s “Are we here”. 15 minutes long and I’d played over 70 times – or for 17 hours. One track. Blimey.
Falling out of reach – Guillemots
