Some days, I don't recognise my country, and other days, I see people being vocal and passionate, and I think, 'There's my country.'
Sometimes when you're making more errors you want to pull back, but I just need to keep going forward.
I never think of access or good will. I just want a good interview. I want guests to be informative and entertaining. I've never been concerned about someone's liking me tomorrow.
I have no aspiration whatsoever to be the next great leading man.
I love my job… but I find myself awkwardly straddling the divide between British Islam and the British media. I get pretty exhausted of having to constantly endure a barrage of lazy stereotypes, inflammatory headlines, disparaging generalisations, and often inaccurate and baseless stories.
