‘When friends come over, it’s almost an overload if it’s open-ended. I actually want to know when I can get rid of everyone. My default setting is that I feel more comfortable being alone. ‘
Asked what his wife Jane thinks about this, he explained: “I always said to her, I clearly love her very much, but I like it when we are in the same house, but not in the same room.

‘When you see people being stopped from speaking in universities or this new thing called’ safetyism ‘- I don’t feel safe working in this environment because people have different opinions from me – then I think that’s wrong.
