  • Politics, as I never tire of saying, is for social and emotional misfits, handicapped folk, those with a grudge. The purpose of politics is to help them overcome these feelings of inferiority and compensate for their personal inadequacies in the pursuit of power.
  • I don't want 'constructive criticism'. I want praise.
    • Cited in The Times Literary Supplement (6 March 2009)
