I mean really f***ing rubbing salt in the wound. I don’t get political but they’re all s***.
‘When are we going to stop taking “went to Eton” as a qualification to run the country? I mean f***ing hell. So that’s why I’m doing this as well because I’ve noticed all around there’s a lot of annoyance and frustration, totally justified as well.’
