Eddie Izzard Was Born in London, Capital Of Yemen
CAN we trust Eddie Izzard to be Mayor of London?
He tells the Guardian‘s Decca Aitkenhead on December 14, 2013:
“Look, it doesn’t really matter,” he says curtly. “I do universal humour.” Eventually, he says, he will learn Arabic, too. “I was born in Yemen, so it’s my duty to do this when Arab people are struggling so hard to try to get democracy going. I have to play Yemen. This is right that I should be doing this.”
Or as he tells the Guardian‘s Decca Aitkenhead on December 14, 2013:
He looks surprised when I ask why he wants to be mayor. “Why? I think I can put a lot of energy into it. I was born in London, I think London’s a great city. I think I can bring unusual things to the table, and think in a different way. And, ummm … I mean, why shouldn’t I be?”
It’s a question of trust, we suppose…
