So what's next for you? How are you finding the political process?
Well, I'm really busy. I'm traveling to Africa, Romania, Croatia, Italy and then back to America before moving on to Australia and New Zealand. This movement against the global elite is exploding worldwide, it's moving forward.
I'm actually a very private person. I like my own space, reading, researching and writing back home on the Isle of Wight. I have lived in the public eye since I was fifteen, and I get tired sometimes, but these people around me are brilliant. I've never met them before but they are all coming out to help to support me with the campaign.
Are you optimistic about the future?
I'd say yes. It's a mental process - people, in general, know what needs to be done and they know it's right to do it, and finding all of these open hearts and open minds makes the last twenty years worthwhile.
