Commenting on the Sachsgate affair, he says: "The BBC is brilliant, and we'll really regret it when its gone. And it will go - we're witnessing it unravelling now. But I don't think it handled [Sachsgate] at all well. They should've looked at the people who were pointing fingers - that was the problem.
"The problem was the Daily Mail...I did a stupid thing, the BBC handled it badly and opportunist, negative institutions exploited the situation to help destroy one of the few remaining facets of British national life of which we can be genuinely proud. But the Daily Mail is evil and it's only a matter of time before they make a mistake. And when they do we will be ready."
