QuoteHumphrys has been described as a "natural liberal" and does not view himself as conservative, saying; "I am not conservative, you know. I am genuinely one of those pathetic people who has very strong views about issues".He also stated that his political views are heavily influenced by what he sees and who he talks to as a reporter. "So every other bloody week I change my mind about something or other, and when you vote, you look for the party that comes closest to what you believe."When asked if he was happy with having the extracts of his books published in the Daily Mail, Humphreys responded saying: "Yes. They did and they not only did that, but they also sought my approval. I was not particularly happy with the splash [the headline] the Mail used, but you know... I don't give a flying fuck whether people think that a particular newspaper is biased in this way or that way. All I'm concerned with is that my material is presented in the way I've written it and they didn't change a word."He also responded to a further question titled "Do you understand why some people don't like the Daily Mail?" saying that he has always read the Daily Mail simply because it reaches an awful lot of people. And that it may not always be compatible with his own views, but said that he also thinks the same about The Guardian, which hosted the interview.He views himself as feminist: "I detest the word feminism, because of course I'm a feminist," he says. "God, why does one have to say it? Obviously, obviously... Racism is a profoundly moral issue, as is feminism. That's why I refused to wear one of those "This is what a feminist looks like" T-shirts. No, it isn't. This is what a white man looks like, who happens to believe that women are equal to men. I mean, even saying it makes you sound like a dickhead."
