What are your thoughts on marriage? -
“I’m not married but I have a lot of nieces and nephews. My mother died when I was 15 and when my sister told me the facts of life I couldn’t even sit next to a chap on the bus. Today people live in and have half a dozen children and some exotic wedding on a beach - thats not marriage.”
Have you always lived in London? -
“Yes. When you live in a place you don't see it in the way others do. I like poetry, theres a poem about Westminster Bridge by Wordsworth - its nothing like todays Westminster Bridge."
What do you do in your free time? -
“I go to a charity shop where they sell loads of children’s books. They only charge 10 pence and they’re in mint condition. This is a good one - Fighting Dragons, and this one The Pirate School. I read them and then give them to another charity. When I see children with those things on the bus (to which I said— iPads?) Yes, those, I'm surprised.”
