Ben: As a child I was neither seen nor heard. I was not taken seriously. Everything I attempted to articulate was diminished, distorted or interrupted. It's a miracle that I got out of that; affluent, middle class, horrible. That is why I honour that child and voice in me by saying 'They're going to hear and see me, and I'm not going to be interrupted. I'll put them in a place where they can't interrupt me'.
