Last quote by Tim Bale

What he has been up to will have impressed some members of Parliament, because it shows energy, chutzpah, ambition and steel. That is something people like to see. But is also shows that he is mercurial, unreliable and untrustworthy.feedback

Tim Bale quotes

Jun 10 2017 - Labour Party

We have underestimated the importance of the economy, especially when its largesse is so unevenly distributed. Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,” wrote Wordsworth, “but to be young was very heaven!” OK, maybe that’s going a little too far, especially if you didn’t get a wink of sleep on Thursday night. But still. If you were aged 18-24 and you voted, then you probably felt pretty pleased with yourself on Friday morning. Younger voters, it seems, were the key to Jeremy Corbyn feeling like he has won when he has lost. Cue talk of the personality cult surrounding Labour’s sainted leader, of social media memes shared by tech-savvy digital natives and the revenge of young remainers angry that their future had been stolen from them while they weren’t looking (and in many cases, if they’re honest, not voting) in the EU referendum last summer.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

She might start off doing that but the Conservatives might well replace her mid-stream. That's going to make it difficult for the EU 27 because they're going to want to know who they're talking to and what their policy is.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

Labour offered something positive. There were a lot of goodies in the manifesto.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

Anyone who thought Britain was a calm relaxed, centrist kind of country will have to think again.feedback

Jun 03 2017

Labour's working class base is crumbling underneath it.feedback

May 24 2017

It changes the narrative completely, at least for a time. It's almost bound to play to the strengths of an incumbent prime minister, especially one responsible, in her previous job, for security. I honestly doubt that would make much difference now. Most people have an innate sympathy, and realize that the security services have a difficult job and can't prevent 100 percent.feedback

May 15 2017

She is still, in essence, a Conservative, and I don't think this is as huge a departure as the Tory spinners would like us to think.feedback

May 15 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

We are seeing a willingness to think of intervention that would have been seen as anathema by hard-core Thatcherites. Hers is maybe more the view that, economically, things have got a little out of kilter and that the vote for Brexit was a reflection of that.feedback

May 15 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

It is difficult to know where Nick Timothy ends and Theresa May begins, because Theresa May has never given anything much away, so people make the assumption there is someone else behind it.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - British elections 2017

She has a small majority, a big task ahead of her and a huge opinion poll lead. If you put all those things together they equal a general election.feedback

Jan 16 2017 - Single market

But if that's really what she's going to do, and it's not simply a negotiating stance on her part, it might be better to do it sooner rather than later.feedback

Jun 30 2016

Knowing Boris Johnson, he probably doesn't think this is the last chance for him. This is Boris! He's going to leave his colleagues to clear up the mess he himself helped create, and in a few years he might have another crack at it.feedback

Jun 24 2016

He was seen as the face of the victorious 'leave' campaign. He has an awful lot of support in the Conservative Party membership. I cannot see how MPs will not vote him through as one of the last two to go to the membership ballot so he must be favorite by quite some distance actually.feedback

Jun 24 2016

The appeal of the anti-Establishment populist argument that we need to take back control of our borders and immigration ... proved stronger than the economic risks that Brexit would entail. I think people are soon going to find out that the promise of the 'leave' campaign cannot possibly be realized.feedback

Jun 24 2016

Clearly I think Boris Johnson has to be the favorite. He's got huge momentum behind him. I think he was seen as the face of the victorious leave campaign. He has an awful lot of support in the Conservative Party membership.feedback
