Overhead at Hay Festival…

Matt Seaton was part of the Guardian team at the Hay Festival, and busied himself collecting shards of epigramatic wit from Tony Benn. Amongst them:

“My oldest son was in a cab in Northern Ireland and the driver was a Paisleyite who was ranting about Gerry Adams. He ended by saying, ‘But I’ll say this for him: he’s stuck to his guns.'”
