When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be in the Banana Splits Show.

Who is your hero and why?

Bobby Drake aka the Iceman. He can chill a can of beer by just thinking about it.

What’s your favourite song?

Prince Charles & the City Beat Band Cash Cash Money.

What are you scared of?

Donald Trump.

Which is better: Twitter or Facebook?

Facebook feels old and like you are selling your soul. I prefer Twitter: see the instant response to the Daily Mail’s ‘Who WILL speak for England?’. See #WhoWillSpeakForEngland .

Which is better: salt n vinegar or salt n sauce?

Salt n Sauce, definitely.

You’re on a desert island, you can take one person, one book and one type of food. Who would you take, which book and which food?

I’d take Beatrice Dalle and Franny and Zooey. Whisky’s a form of food, right?

When have you been wrong about something?

I once thought we would never win independence.

What really makes you angry?

Dog friendly restaurants. What’s that all about?

What really makes you happy?

Jumping off rocks into the sea.

If you could spend an hour with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you ask them?

Ivor Cutler – I’d ask him about what it was like at Summerhill with AS Neill
