Quote of the day, Thursday 29th February 2024

James Tapper's article in the Guardian - that's right, the Guardian - on Sunday about today's by-election in Rochdale ended with the following quote.

Between showers a queue has formed outside one of Rochdale’s soup kitchens, in Drake Street, and Muhammad Aziz has a shopping trolley of food collected from local businesses and families to give away, offering bread, muffins and cakes to people. 

“I do this every day,” he said. “Rochdale has a lot of deprivation and a lot of poverty. We’re trying to make Rochdale better again, help people back on their feet.” 

And how will he vote? 

“I’m a Conservative,” he says. “The Tories are the people who can bring the money from London.”
