Quote of the day 13th January 2016

“My advice to my own party leadership is that they should take less notice of the London-centric, hard-left political class who sit around in their £1million mansions, eating their croissants at breakfast and seeking to lay the foundations for a socialist revolution.
 
“It is not the job of the Parliamentary Labour Party to sit around developing ultra-left-wing policies that make it feel good."

“It is its job and responsibility to come forward with policies that will help us to win the next general election.”

“For those who do not want to take on that task, can I suggest that they join a society in which they can enjoy sitting around having a philosophical debate about the meaning of socialism?”

(Extract form the maiden speech in the House of Lords of Lord Watts, previously Labour MP for St Helens North.)
