you consider to be our next Prime Minister?
Stephen Fry: I´m very touch by your idea that I’m capable of being Prime Minister! I’m many things, but above all I’m a moral coward and a social coward, and I don’t think I could take the hatred and the dislike of those who disagree with what I said. It’s bad enough on Twitter. You post something and although 99% of people, at least, are nice even if they desagree with you, that 1% unpleasant, unkind and threatening … . I always think it’s a bit like a swimming pool. If 99% of the swimmingpool water is beautiful, it’s nice, but if there is a little piece a poo floating in it, I’m not gonna swim in the pool. I’m not that sort of people that don’t care what people think …
