There’s not a single person who has had to lead who hasn’t upset somebody, has a huge fucking demographic of people who dislikes them, hates them, and wants them dead. Well, in that case, if somebody hates me or dislikes me, then that’s a compliment. I’ve done something right. And you only have to judge me on my integrity and whether you believe, whether you feel that I am somebody who you’d let look after your daughter for the afternoon. You don’t have to answer that, Tom, but I guarantee that you could leave your daughter with me and my little boy and we’d have a great afternoon, and that would be that.
