SIBLING: Jeremy Corbyn
CAREER: Founder / Owner, WeatherAction
QUOTES: “Whatever may have seemed plausible ten years ago, Global Warming is over and there is no evidence that CO2 ever was, is, or will be a driver of world temperatures or Climate Change.”
“When we have these conversations at Christmas, [Jeremy’s] sons say, ‘Dad, why don't you go along with Uncle Piers?’ I can tell you what he says, but I don't know if it's advisable. Put it this way, he’d rather say nothing and carry on getting support from various greenies.”

“Nelson Mandela’s legacy is a murderous one, comparable, in its racist and economic persecution of a minority, to the Nazis’ treatment of the Jews.”
“I tried for years to get Rowan to take the 'nerd on a park bench eating his lunch' character, which he used in his one-man show, and expand it into a series which would 'go international'… The universal nature of silent comedy and its international appeal was obvious and Rowan had created the basic character already…. I got no royalty."

QUOTES: "I hate chavs, I hate everything about them, I hate their loud voices and the words 'init', 'phat', 'fam', etc. Like, seriously, why would you want to be a chav?.. When chavs put status' (sic) I honestly don't understand half of what they've put. The grammar and spelling is shocking."
