Neil Hamilton: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

Christine.

If you say so dear.

David Cameron.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

Cherie Blair. Thank God.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

Another invitation to lunch.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank.” What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Banking is for adolescents. Real men drink.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“You can’t do that”.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I undertake a lot of ‘pro bono’ legal work for people but my wife is in charge of our wider charitable affairs. We don’t have one special charity although she is currently ambassador for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and we both assist and support many and varied local and national charities.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

It is not my world. I have a telephonist.
