Personal Quote:

[on Tony Blair] In the early days we were doing jokes about how he's susceptible to spin, he doesn't know what he thinks. Nowadays he does know what he thinks and that's much more frightening. So over the years our version of his comic voice has gone from bright-eyed and enthusiastic to sort of bitter and mad. See more »

Trivia:

Because of his diminutive stature and pugnacious journalistic style, he was once described by fellow journalist John Sweeney as "a garden gnome on acid". See more »
