The things they say…

“I will once again be pushed, pulled, ca­joled and coaxed around the dance­floor in all man­ner of ways. Who knows, they might even fire me out of a can­non” – For­mer Tory min­is­ter Ann

Wid­de­combe, who is in­cluded in the line-up for the Strictly Come Danc­ing

Christ­mas Spe­cial. “Call­ing some­thing a glass ceil­ing is al­most more of a rea­son for some­one to want to go and smash it”

– Singer Danny O’Donoghue. “Now we find in the Con­ser­va­tive Party that we fre­quently con­grat­u­late our­selves be­cause we’ve had two fe­male prime min­is­ters, but ac­tu­ally, whilst that is some­thing to cel­e­brate, it is cer­tainly not some­thing to hide be­hind”

– Tory MP Ed­die Hughes. “What the work­place shouldn’t be about is bul­ly­ing, and what it shouldn’t be about is sup­press­ing peo­ple. Ev­ery­body should have a voice, oth­er­wise why be in busi­ness in the first place?” – Re­tail ex­pert and TV pre­sen­ter Mary Por­tas. “Hi­er­ar­chy is writ­ten into the very fab­ric of this build­ing – there are mem­bers-only bars and can­teens, com­mit­tee rooms have mem­bers-only doors, there are mem­ber­sonly lifts, mem­bers-only cor­ri­dors, mem­bers-only stair­wells. All of this com­pounds a sense of us and them for the thou­sands of non­mem­bers who work here”

– Tory Party vice-chair­man He­len Whately on the Palace

of West­min­ster. “I want to put on a stupid voice and not have to wear make-up to work. What a dream” – Ac­tress Carey Mul­li­gan, who wants a role in an

an­i­mated film. “I’m a pet, I stay in­doors and try not to bark at the win­dow” – For­mer Labour leader Ed Miliband is no fan of

fire­works.

“There isn’t one law for the fa­mous and one for the rest of the com­mu­nity” – Mr Jus­tice Mostyn ticks off Ant Mc­Partlin’s lawyers over the TV star’s fail­ure to at­tend a court hear­ing re­lat­ing to his di­vorce.
