Interesting Facts

1Because of his diminutive stature and pugnacious journalistic style, he was once described by fellow journalist John Sweeney as "a garden gnome on acid".
2The only person to appear twice as a guest on Room 101 (1994).
3The only person to appear on every episode of Have I Got News for You (1990).
4Editor of the satirical magazine "Private Eye", where he succeeded Richard Ingrams.


1The whole point of the Windsor dynasty is they're terrifically dull.
2[on frequent Have I Got News for You (1990) guest Boris Johnson] People always ask me the same question. They say, 'Is Boris a very very clever man pretending to be an idiot?', and I always say, 'No.'
3[on the death of Freddie Mercury in an interview] Queen were a third-rate glam rock band.
4We've done articles in Private Eye about people who've gone through the appeals process and have been exonerated. They would be dead! The Death Penalty is not a deterrent if we kill the wrong people.
5[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.
6[on his and Paul Merton's behavior towards Angus Deayton] We didn't stab Deayton in the back. We stabbed him in the front.
7It is no longer acceptable in British politics to be fat or eccentric or religious.
