1 [on Margaret Thatcher] Mrs Thatcher, where you're going in a few years time, you won't have to worry about coal because it will be bloody roasting where you're going. I hope the miners have a bloody day out when it happens because I'll be with them having a pint.
2 I never had acting lessons so I'm still an old ham, probably playing myself most of the time.
