Another Right-Wing Rock Star

Ricky Gervais stakes another claim to being the best satirist around with this interview of Chris Martin, the notoriously right-wing lead singer of Coldplay. Best question:

RG: "Now, at the Conservative Party conference a few years ago, you made a rousing speech saying that if Labour banned foxhunting, you'd leave the country. Now, you did leave, but now you're back. Isn't that hypocritical?"
CM: "I just came back to get some stuff, to get my hunting gear - two guns and a knife."
The question about his wife is funny, too.
