Last quote by Andrew Rawnsley

Everyone has lessons to learn from the general election. The tricky bit is picking the right ones. It is seven and a bit weeks since the election and journalists are still being asked why we didn’t see the result coming. It is a fair cop, to which there is no real defence; only a plea of mitigation. It wasn’t just us. Virtually no one saw it coming. The politicians, especially the politicians, didn’t see it coming either. Their crystal balls were completely cracked.feedback

Andrew Rawnsley has most recently been quoted in an article called Theresa May could still have a future - as a human sponge. Andrew Rawnsley said, “She very nearly quit as prime minister on election night. She may end up wishing she had. William Petty, the 2nd Earl of Shelburne, is one of the less well-remembered people to have been a tenant of Number 10. I mention him because, as Tory MPs argue about how long they should give Theresa May, the brief, but illuminating lifespan of that 18th-century prime minister is a possible guide to her future.”. Andrew Rawnsley has been quoted a grand total of 15 times in 13 articles.

Apr 01 2017 - Brexit

There may be a way to an agreement with the EU, but it won’t be achieved by trying to bluff. One way of looking at the Brexit negotiation is as a game of high stakes poker. Theresa “Queen of Vegas” May and her sidekick, David “Old Knuckleduster” Davis will sit on one side of a green baize table. They will arrange their faces to be utterly inscrutable; they will stitch cards to chests; they will leave Boris at home for fear that he might accidentally blurt out the content of Britain’s hand. Across from them will sit Michel “Hardball” Barnier, the chief negotiator for the commission, and Donald “Goodbye” Tusk, representing the 27 countries who will be remaining within the EU once Britain has taken its leave.feedback

Mar 11 2017

The desperate blame game over the budget is a bad sign when the perilous business of Brexit is about to begin. It is one of the more endearing eccentricities of British government that the two most powerful people in the cabinet live next door to each other. Even more bizarrely, they also live on top of each other, since the chancellor’s flat is located above Number 10 and the prime minister’s living quarters are above Number 11.feedback
