^ that's old news and horrifically out of context. (He actually first said he liked it cos there was less traffic but then added that "because this is the BBC I have to be "balanced" so have them shot...") so the joke was actually about the BBC's policy to having to give both sides....
Anyway, I also have to confess I now want to visit a hotel just to try out the trouser press as a toastie-maker.
Wasn't that a Red Dwarf idea 12 years ago? Lister wanted a transfer to a different wing because they had trouser presses, so he could make toasties.
