"For an enormous number of incidences, yes."

Thank you, Grant, for sending this.

Interviewer: You are in favor of capital punishment?
Waugh: For an enormous number of incidences, yes.
Interviewer: And you yourself would be prepared to carry it out?
Waugh: Doing -- actually doing the hanging as well?
Interviewer: Yes.
Waugh: I think it odd for them to choose a novelist for such a task.
