Last quote by Zoe Williams

The strongmen who fix on the immigrant as the enemy also turn women into objects. “Looking at the Brexit vote now, it was a precursor to some extent of what happened to us in the United States,” Hillary Clinton told the BBC’s Andrew Marr. When President Barack Obama came over just before the referendum to plead with our better natures and warn of an outcome which he elegantly understated the catastrophe of, it felt a little shaming, like a grownup arriving in the middle of a food fight. Clinton, partly because she isn’t president, mainly because those Brexit and Trump ships have sailed, appears less like an authority and more like a coroner at an inquest.feedback

The most recent Zoe Williams’s quote is: “It’s laughable that such an unrepresentative group could choose the next prime minister, but defanging them will not solve the government’s problems. All senior politicians arrive at their annual party conferences with their own tactics and theatrics to meet the same conundrum: how to persuade the members that, however you seem on the national or international stage, deep down, you’re one of them. Theresa May famously tended to her grassroots in 2011 with a story about an immigrant’s cat she had borrowed off Ukip (the story, not the cat). Tony Blair used to arrive before his faithful like a bigamist with a bunch of garage flowers: “Sure, I’ve set up home elsewhere, but be realistic; you’re not going to divorce me. We’ve so much shared history, and, besides, who else would have you?” The game is to keep the rank-and-file sweet enough that they will put the stability of the parliamentary party above themselves; disturb that natural order – put any decisions back into members’ hands – and they will destroy your party, being extremists by definition. The paradox of old politics was that joining a party put you not at its epicentre but at its fringe.”. In addition, all sources we refer have quoted Zoe Williams 8 times.
