My interview with Norman Tebbit about UKIP, gay marriage and Tories ‘fucking things up’

I went to interview Norman Tebbit as part of my research for a new book I’m planning. I visited him at his home in Suffolk. He was charming, erudite and fascinating company. But he didn’t stick to the subjects I was there to talk to him about. He went off piste quite a lot, ranting about UKIP, Europe, gay marriage, the uselessness of the coalition government and loads of other stuff. It was stuff that would be of no use to my book but I thought was very newsworthy so I wrote it up and offered it to the very brilliant Big Issue, who I write a TV column for. They published it today and it got picked up by numerous  nationals such as The Times, The Mail, The Guardian and even my favourite, the Daily Mash
