Garry Kasparov:

“If people like Obama and Cameron had been in charge in the 1980s I would still be playing chess for the Soviet Union.”

Quote of the Day

UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn:

“I think Mail online comments are a telling indication of public opinion.”

Quote of the Day

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”

Quote of the Day

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”

Quote of the Day

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”

Quote of the Day

After Danny Alexander alleged that George Osborne padlocks the fridge in the Treasury to stop people nicking his milk, Damian McBride clears up #FridgeGate:

“If I recall rightly, Kev put the lock on the fridge in 2nd floor kitchen in 2006 to stop me nicking Gordon’s Highland Spring.”

Quote of the Day

A member of the Youth Parliament makes the most compelling case yet for lowering the voting age:

“You can have sex with your local MP but you can’t vote for who they are.”

Quote of the Day

Sajid Javid on press freedom at the Society of Editors annual conference:

“The press exists not to pander to the powerful, but to hold them to account. And that applies whether they are Prime Ministers, business leaders, police officers or, yes, Secretaries of State for Culture, Media and Sport. Do I have days where I don’t agree with what I read in the newspapers? Of course. Have there been times when I’ve looked at the headlines and despaired at the way you’re treating my friends, colleagues and predecessors? Plenty. But should I be allowed to interfere and dictate what it is you should be saying? Never. As George Orwell said, “freedom of the press, if it means anything at all, means the freedom to criticise and oppose.” It’s one of the fundamental liberties on which modern Britain was built. There is no point in saying “I believe in freedom of the press, but…” Either you believe in it, or you don’t. It’s an absolute. A zero sum concept.”

Quote of the Day

Boris on Ed:

“the logical thing would be for the Tories to start a campaign to save the Panda. It would be in our interests to protect the poor beleaguered Lefty, leave him there masticating his bamboo shoots – in case he is replaced by someone more threatening.[…]

Labour sources twist the knife into Axelrod in the Washington Post:

““You cannot spend 300,000 pounds on a press release. Axelrod can no longer just cash the checks and send e-mails. You need boots on the ground,” said a Labor strategist who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the news media on behalf of the party.[…]
