“I came to England first in 1954 looking for a bedsit, a room to sleep in while going to my academy.

Irishmen or black need apply” and I took my jersey and I put it down over my hand and I put my hand right through the glass and I took it out and I kept it
for the rest of my life. That’s how we were treated here in 1954. That would cause me grievance. That would cause me anger.”

nominated by BAFTA for anything. Do I care? Not in the slightest.”
