QUOTES OF THE DAY

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - SERIAL -

We need to demon­strate that there is more to West­min­ster pol­i­tics than just pan­tomime.

An­drea Lead­som, leader of the House of Com­mons.

I was a Chris­tian when I was young and didn’t know any bet­ter. And I once went to a con­fer­ence about cur­ing gay­ness – all it did was re­in­force my shame. Il­lu­sion­ist Der­ren Brown.

Gyms are full of mo­rons who would be bet­ter off in the li­brary work­ing on their IQ.

Broad­caster Jeremy Clark­son.

I think ‘stupid wo­man’ is quite mild given the way she is treat­ing the coun­try. For­mer Tory Min­is­ter Ann Wid­de­combe on Jeremy Cor­byn’s al­leged use of the term to de­scribe the prime min­is­ter.

Be­ing al­lowed on the ra­dio is a priv­i­lege and an hon­our. I cup the mi­cro­phone like it’s a pre­cious Faberge egg each time I en­ter a stu­dio to re­mind my­self never to take such a gift for granted.

Broad­caster Chris Evans.

For­get try­ing to be sexy. That’s just grue­some.

Ac­tor Colin Firth

I’m good at play­ing the emo­tion­ally stran­gled per­son. The wo­man who is in the worst place in her life. That’s me! Ac­tress Thandie Newton.

Colin Firth and Thandie Newton.
