Thanks to Luke for this one – he’s pointed me in the direction of a transcript of an interview between Richard Littlejohn – dubious right-wing journalist – and Will Self – dubious left-wing intellectual. My sympathies are of course heavily with the latter ex-heroin-addict. Although I could be alone in that… Here are a few choice quotes from Self vs Littlejohn:
SELF: It is a 400 page… I’ve read 200 pages of it and that is a 200 page recruiting leaflet for the BNP.
LITTLEJOHN: Well, you can’t comment until you have read the other 200.
SELF: Why? Does it suddenly turn into Tolstoy?
LITTLEJOHN: You’ll have to read it and find out, won’t you.
SELF: Well it won’t take me long.
