WHAT THEY SAY
I am delighted to host the Royal Variety Show. It is a role that I am wildly unsuited to and I will no doubt offend a great many people – Comedian Greg Davies.
The age of space and technology is very much a man’s world. For girls and women, the world is still stuck in medieval times. Girls and women are not just about finding a man and having babies. We have ideas, we have careers and we have the power – Singer Paloma Faith.
The pace of radicalisation is quite different to what it was a decade ago. It’s very rapid indeed. It can be between breakfast and lunch – Baroness Manningham-Buller, a former MI5 chief.

I have a cold. Can you catch germs by reading about them? – Jacqueline McCrindle, of Ayrshire, in a presumably ironic letter to the Daily Telegraph.
