Last quote by Jess Phillips

For most women you can look back and say: 'I wish I had told the police,' but knowing what I know in working in sexual violence services I doubt they would have been able to do something.feedback

Jess Phillips quotes

Jun 29 2017

I have met victims of human trafficking literally brought to this country for their ability to bear children and reap the financial benefits for their slave owners. The Handmaid's Tale is not a dystopia to me - I have met women whose wounds have kept them captive. No one can tell me the desire to control a women's reproductive rights by this man was not an act of abuse.feedback

The group I will be in is the one that recognises that we didn't win this election but we are on the way to winning the next one if we get it right. I will never be a blinkered cheerleader of anyone (ask my kids) and while I got his electability half wrong I would be doing him and the country a disservice by donning the white robes of worship and ignoring my concerns.feedback

Not saying sorry has cost May dearly in this election, but Labour needs to get its house in order too. The ability to say “I was wrong” or to own up to your mistakes is very powerful. I teach my children that admitting fault is the quickest way to stop the problem, move on and get on with whatever it is you should be doing. This was clearly not a lesson learned by Theresa May. Her inability to just say “Sorry, folks, turns out you didn’t like the dementia tax, so I’ve changed my mind” has cost her dear.feedback

In London after 7/7, people got back on those trains the next day and carried on working.feedback

May 09 2017 - London

During the London terror attack, trapped pupils from Birmingham represented all the good in the world. Now a 10-year-old from the same school has been forced to move. “Kids Trapped In Terror” read one tabloid headline trailing the story of the children from Holy Family primary school kept inside parliament during the terrorist attack in March.feedback

In 2022, this seat will be a fight between me and the Tories. Well, if I'm still here.feedback

She's playing a game and it's a shame. I don't think there was any appetite for a general election from the public and this is Westminster politics once again.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

I'm still a bit in shock. I think that Theresa May has lied to the country again and again – and she is being opportunistic. I think it is rubbish what she is saying about a country divided – she obviously doesn't live round where I live. People just want to get on with their lives.feedback

It will be amazing to see the chamber full of kids enjoying themselves and I'm sure it's exactly what my friend Jo would have wanted to see. The place has never seen anything like this before, but I'm betting the children will be a lot less rowdy than their mums and dads can be sometimes. It's not always easy being an MP and a mum, but Jo showed that serving your constituents doesn't have to be at the expense of being there for your kids. And if we can make it easier for women with young children to go into politics if they want to then we'll be doing Jo proud.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Labour Party

There isn't a canvassing session where someone doesn't say, I've voted Labour all my life, but I can't vote for you at the moment because of Jeremy Corbyn.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Women

Who looks like they have power here, the real Brummy on the left or the EDL who migrated for the day to our city and failed to assimilate. I just stood there.feedback

I feel proud to be from a place that rejects far right hatred and Saffiyah is a beacon of that hope.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Labour Party

I mean, the polling rate is terrible, it would be crass to say anything else. It would be crass of me to say 'he could rally!'. It's like - what's it called? - Monty Python where he's like 'it's only a flesh wound!', it is getting a bit like that. I'm not going to put a time on it because when is the right time - there isn't a right time, there isn't a wrong time.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Labour Party

Also the clouds aren't going to part and something amazing is going to happen that is going to save the left of politics, that isn't how it works and these things are calculated by people with endless different agendas, so I don't know when the time will be. At the moment Len (McCluskey's) said 15 months, so I mean he's our boss apparently, so 15 months, is it 12 months? I think it's arbitrary to put a time on it and I think that Jeremy will come to the conclusions by himself. One can only hope, because it would be the ultimately selfish thing to do.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Labour Party

There would be nothing socialist about knowing that you were going to make the people you cared about the poorer. That would be the ultimate selfish act, to put yourself in front of those people whose voice you amplify would be the ultimate selfish act and he's a socialist, so he won't do that.feedback

Mar 27 2017

The words of the judge, if they have been reported accurately, are frankly astonishing. The idea that a woman's educational status or her friendships are being used to judge her vulnerability completely fails to understand the nature of domestic abuse.feedback

Mar 21 2017

And if he doesn't, then there is no way I will continue to pay my subs if it is going to fund an organisation that sends coordinated abuse to my colleagues.feedback

McCluskey has to come out and say: this is nothing to do with me, and distance himself from it all and say no promise has been made.feedback

Mar 18 2017 - London

The Labour MP has castigated George Osborne for his banking role – but now he’s landed yet another job. I actually don’t know where to begin writing about George Osborne becoming the editor of the London Evening Standard. So bizarre is the latest from the once likely heir to No 10 that people will, for years to come, speak of where they were when they heard the news. It happened on Friday so, naturally, like all good MPs, I was sitting in my constituency office, working. The annoying BBC “news just in” jingle rang out on a number of devices. My colleague, John, peered over his computer screen and relayed the news: “George Osborne is the new editor of the Evening Standard.” We locked eyes as I attempted to make sense of the information. I couldn’t. Several seconds passed. I managed to splutter: “What?” “You heard,” he replied, dead-eyed. Still more seconds passed as my brain ran through the databank of possible responses, finally landing, after what seemed like a lifetime, on “WTF”.feedback

Mar 11 2017

The well-connected former chancellor has landed himself a nice little earner – where does he find the time?The Fallen Chancellor, George Osborne, recently updated his entry in the register of members interests. He earned, it seems, £82,000 to speak for two hours. I’ve heard George Osborne speak. I don’t want to be wilfully derisory – he isn’t bad at it – but I wouldn’t pay £82,000 for the pleasure. I wouldn’t pay £82. I might stretch to £8.20 – because that’s pretty much what I would pay to watch most things.feedback
