Quite a stir at the time. From across the river looking back at Cliveden you can see the little hideaway cottage where they often enjoyed a few moments together.

"You grow your way to prosperity; you don't cut your way to it."

"You pay more in wages, get more in in tax, you get people living a higher standard, you get more money. It's a kind of circle."

"I haven't had vast amounts of ministerial experience - in fact, none at all. But I do have a lot of experience of people."

"I've been proud to be the chair of the Stop the War coalition, proud to be associated with the Stop the War coalition."

"We oppose the benefit cap. We oppose social cleansing. We will bring the welfare bill down by controlling rents and boosting wages, not by impoverishing families and socially cleansing our communities."

"If you want a more productive economy, you need to invest in the skills of our workforce."

"I do think the public want to see politicians acting in a different way. What's brought young people into our campaign is that they were written off by political parties but they had never written off politics, and what we have is a huge number of young people, very enthusiastic and brimming with ideas. Those ideas have got to be heard."

People will forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.

Just think that is so true, and there's always one who loves most and one who loves least.
