Quote of the Day

Matthew Parris self-satirises

“Today’s parliaments are the most inclusive, diverse, unpretentious, least corrupt, most streetwise, hardest-working assemblies that Britain has ever elected, and by a long chalk the most in touch with the concerns of ordinary citizens. They do know how the other half lives. They try ceaselessly — they try too hard — to understand and empathise. They inquire, they engage, they research, they listen. They’re painfully aware of the impact of policy on people.”
