Personal Quote:

Watching TV is the most popular leisure activity in Britain. I find that very depressing. I think that the basic problem is that we are all a bunch of barbarians really. At work people are expected to be at the beck and call of employers all the time. You have blackberries and other things, and they just don't leave you alone. People have less time just to drop into an art gallery. See more »
