Quotes about The (Manchester) Guardian[edit]

  • Nor can I say that the non-Conformist Conscience has never disappointed me. At one time it was the backbone of this country, nobly presented as it was in old days by the Manchester Guardian.
    • Margot Asquith, The Autobiography of Margot Asquith, Volume II (1922), p. 168
  • Jim Hacker: Don't tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the papers. The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country; The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country; The Times is read by the people who actually do run the country; the Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country; the Financial Times is read by people who own the country; the Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country, and the Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is.
