John Major quotes

Jun 13 2017 - Northern Ireland

If there difficulties with the Northern Ireland executive or with any one of a number of things that might well arise during the Brexit negotiations, it is very important that there's an honest broker. And the only honest broker can be the UK government.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Northern Ireland

People shouldn't regard it as a given. It isn't certain, it is under stress. It is fragile. And although I don't expect it suddenly to collapse – because there is a broad consensus that wishes it to continue – I think we have to take care with it, and take care that everything we do does not exaggerate the underlying differences that still are there in the Northern Ireland community.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Northern Ireland

I am concerned about the deal, I am wary about wary it, I am dubious about it, both for peace process reasons but also for other reasons as well.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Northern Ireland

That is going to cause a great degree of grievance elsewhere. They would see it as the government paying cash for votes in parliament, and in doing so I think that could well cost votes in the country for the Conservative party, by the bucketload, at a subsequent election.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Brexit

The biggest losers from a complete disengagement between Britain and Europe are going to be those least able to protect themselves, both in Europe and in the U.K.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Brexit

Once we leave, we lose those bilateral deals. Can we, 65 million Britons, get the same deal as 500 million Europeans negotiated for Europe, including the U.K.?feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Brexit

The U.K. has a robust political and economic structure. And so I do not share the view of those who anticipate an economic catastrophe upon leaving. What I do fear is that the U.K. will be less influential politically and will do less well economically than if she had remained in the European Union.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Brexit

Those who favor Brexit, anti-Europeans, promise an easy deal because they say the 27 other European Union members export more to the U.K. than the U.K. does to them. But that crude statistic masks a significant reality. While the U.K. exports nearly half of their goods to Europe, the average exports of the other 27 European nations to the U.K. are a mere 8 percent of their exports. There is no doubt which side most urgently needs a deal. A united Europe matters as a political force in a way that individual European nations never again will do.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - London

I don't for example expect lots of banks to up and move from the City of London, but I do think when it comes to considering fresh investment, there may be more fresh investment in the European Union, and maybe a little less in the U.K.feedback

Feb 27 2017

It is much, so much easier to reach agreement with a friend than with a quarrelsome neighbor. But behind the diplomatic civilities the atmosphere is already sour. A little more charm and a lot less cheap rhetoric would do much to protect the interests of the United Kingdom.feedback

Jun 22 2016

They've (Turkey) been negotiating for 30 years without getting in, they are not going to get in in my judgement for one decade, two decades, perhaps ever. Even if they did get in, we are not in the Schengen zone and even if that happened at some far distant future, what absurdity it is to suggest all 77 million Turks are suddenly going to say: 'Let's go to the United Kingdo.feedback

Apr 21 2016

She is shrewd, she is compassionate, she has a good deal of insight and she has the typical and traditional virtues that you associate with the British. If you were designing someone to be monarch here in Britain, I think you would design someone exactly like Elizabeth II.feedback
