• What animal would you be and why?
An orangutan. I used to get called monkey at school (different story) and have nurtured simian sympathies ever since. We saw orangutans in the wild while travelling in Asia, they are beautiful, thoughtful looking creatures that live in packs, but are quite happy to have time alone. And I would have my hair like theirs if only I could.
• If you were stuck in an elevator and forced to listen to one song what would it be?
My subconscious would have Aerosmith’s ‘Love in an Elevator’ on repeat. From a motivational point of view, maybe Yazz and the Plastic Population’s ‘The Only Way is Up’ as I wouldn’t want to think about the alternative.
• If you were Prime Minister what is the first thing you would do?
Question the electoral system that put me in charge of an entire country.
• What superpower would you like to have and why
Something we talk about a lot in the house as the kids are big Marvel fans. Of all of the infinity stones it’s generally agreed that the time stone is the most useful. Who doesn’t want a second chance. Or a third chance. Or maybe a second, second chance…
• What is the best advice anyone has given you?
My mantra is “You don’t always have to know how to do things, just know what has to be done”
• If you had a dinner party, what famous person would you invite and why?
Bill Drummond of the KLF. I’ve read a few of his books and love his alternative and often scathing views on pop culture. And why Bill, did you burn a million pounds?
