Unfortunately, on the way there he read the Daily Mail, and took a turn for the worse:

    As for me, I don’t like socialism much. I would say socialism takes care of the poor, but a properly executed free-market will have enough wealth to go around that everyone prospers. But, the problem is we don’t have a true free-market… Socialism preaches equality, but invades freedom. And capitalism preaches freedom, but ignores equality (at least to a smaller degree in recent decades.)
