  • Tony Blair is a decent man who genuinely thinks what he is doing is justified. But when he sees men such as George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld smirking and boasting as they announce their Shock and Awe offensive, we hope he understands why we believe we have been dragged into something we should have been fighting tooth and nail to stop.
    • “Troops are heroes, the war's insane”, The Daily Mirror, (March 21, 2003)
  • There is a type of snobbish, pompous journalist who thinks that the only news that has any validity is war, famine, pestilence or politics. I don’t come from that school.
  • Don't chase women, they will chase you… They are like horses in a pasture: if you don't go drooling over her, she is going to want to know why.
    • Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God, and George Clooney, Simon and Schuster (2013), p. 144
  • Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point of calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know, this snowflake culture we operate in, this victimhood culture that everyone, has to think in a certain way, behave a certain way. Everyone has to have a bleeding heart… You say a joke 10 years ago that offended somebody you can never host the Oscars… So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture. They’re fed up with the snowflake culture. They’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything… They just want to tell people, not just how to lead their life but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to. It’s a kind of version of fascism.
  • The liberals get what they want, which is a humorless void where nothing happens, where no one dare do anything, or laugh about anything, or behave in any way that doesn't suit their rigid way of leading a life. No thanks.

  • "The guy with the whale tusk is a Polish chef named Luckasz.

Worth noting this for the next time someone says, ‘we’ve let too many Eastern Europeans into this country’."
When a brave Pole fought with an attacker in London, saving many British lives.
