the youngest person to ever have a work acquired by moma, the museum of modern art in new york. it was reba, which was a woodcut print of a young girl with a plant next to her. and you have said that "success as a child came easily to me," and that "i grew up as a confident, curious child, "not willing to settle for anything but the best." were you always very ambitious from an early age? i wouldn't call it ambition. i didn't know what it was. i knew that i wanted to do something, you know, significant, but i had no idea what and i had no idea how. and i had no concept of the world except my little family, which is very small. you know, it was very intimate. and it seemed to me that the world was intimate too.

putting border security and immigration at the center of their agenda. it seems during the midterms, this was an area where they were making inroads with voters, they seemed to have an edge. what do you make of this strategy? >> as you said, i think there is concern about border security in the country. what's interesting more than anything, paulo, is that in the states where you have this concern be at the highest, i'm talking about states like arizona and new mexico at the border they are doing very well in these midterms. it wasn't the kind of issue that was going to lead to any problems electorally. when i can't begin to understand is when it comes to immigration, it's a bad faith issue for the republican party because many republicans, in fact many republicans in congress, paola, marco rubio, your family, my family, they came into this country as immigrants through the legal asylum seeking process that many are trying to seek at the

Political Thinking with Nick...

there were fewer single parent families then than there are now and this was also the time, of course, when there was big tory rhetoric around single—parent families. around the idea of being on benefits, wasn�*t it? yeah. and the suggestion somehow that maybe you�*d got pregnant in order to get benefits. yeah. that peter lilley speech — you know, i remember all of that and it made me so angry that that kind ofjudgement was being made about our family when i knew how hard my mam was working. remind us of the speech, because there�*ll be plenty of people who forget. peter lilley was secretary of state for social security back then — a job title doesn�*t exist now. yeah. he talked in the conference speech about single parents on benefits and talked in very disparaging terms, about — as if somehow that people did this to get, you know, a council house. i mean, it was really offensive. he mimicked a song, didn�*t he?
