Ian McKellen (on Michael Howard): When he was Minister for Local Government, he put through that short, nasty British little law called Section 28, personally looked after it. And I went to object. Now, the main reason for Section 28 was to stop kids being taught anything positive about gay people like me. And at the end of the interview, during which he refused to do anything about it, he asked me to sign my autograph on his kid's autograph album. So, "Fuck off, I'm gay", I put.
