After calling his taxi driver a ‘sweaty, stupid little shit’, David Mellor rattled through the long list of things that make him a superior human being. ‘You’ve been driving a cab for ten years? I have been in the Cabinet!’ he declared. ‘I am an award-winning broadcaster, I’m a Queen’s Counsel. You think your experiences are anything compared to mine? Just shut up!’

*David Mellor having an existential rant and suddenly confronting the fact that past achievements are nothing as he himself is nothing. (copyright Sartre)
