He said: “Most of it comes from the fact that I get the same questions over again. When I started I used to worry about what I said, but that’s all bullshit, all you’ve got to do is be yourself. What you see is what you get. I don’t practice any lines, I don’t write speeches, I just go with the flow. Some managers are scared stiff and have a pole up their arse and that’s all rubbish. They’re too scared to be themselves. I’m me.”
He just can’t help himself!
