Back in May, John Cleese promised to leave England if MPs voting not to go ahead with Leveson 2. At the time Mr S was left asking: is he a man of his word?
Happily, Steerpike can confirm that he is. Speaking on Newsnight, Cleese told Emily Maitlis that he had decided to leave the country as a result of that vote. And where will he be going? As of the autumn, Cleese will be sunning himself on the island of Nevis – which has a population of just 11,000 – in the Caribbean.
“I don’t like it, I don’t trust it.”
