Last quote by Anand Menon

Just when we need it most, the centre ground has disappeared, its inhabitants cowed by party hardliners. The lunatics have taken over the asylum. The Labour and Conservative conferences were proof positive that the moderates no longer hold sway. The cheers were for the zealots, whether that was John McDonnell or Jacob Rees-Mogg. And, whether from front or back benches, it is they who rule the roost when it comes to leaving the EU. So where have the centrists (and I acknowledge, as Helen Lewis has underlined, that the term is imprecise and potentially misleading, but I can think of no better one) gone? And how should they react?feedback

Anand Menon quotes

Jun 16 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

It was very, very difficult for Theresa May before the election, and it has now become significantly more difficult still.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Brexit

I think on balance in the House of Commons there is a majority for something softer than Theresa May's idea of Brexit.feedback

May 12 2017

If we care about democracy, overturning the referendum is a profoundly dangerous thing to do.feedback

May 05 2017 - Brexit

She had promised to go back to Parliament with the deal she got [with the EU], and Labour promised to vote against it. It would only take a small rebellion from Tories for that deal be rejected in the House of Commons, and if that happened, she would have had to resign. [The election] means that she's likely to get the Brexit deal passed.feedback

May 03 2017 - Brexit

Nothing that has happened in the last two or three days has changed my view of the odds of this thing breaking down. This sort of shadow boxing and posturing doesn't change that in the least because that is what happens when negotiations start: people lay out positions, often exaggerated positions, and that is just the way it goes.feedback

May 02 2017 - Women

I think given the lack of comprehension of how complicated and fraught this process is, and given that public opinion is getting bored of the whole thing, and given that people will be reading reports of it in the British press, it will just look like Juncker is trying to bully Britain.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Brexit

That gives her added momentum, though I don't necessarily think that the momentum is towards the soft side of Brexit.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Snapchat

Some people are getting a bit overexcited and I would take everything that was said over the weekend with a massive pinch of salt. If the talks break down over money or trade or whatever and the mood music is perfidious Europe, then it makes it a lot easier for the prime minister to deflect blame and hold a snap red, white and blue election. It also arguably makes it harder for May to compromise over Brexit.feedback

Mar 29 2017

The British people now think that Europeans will be stupid if they don't give us a good deal, because it's in their own interest.feedback

Mar 29 2017

I think they would prefer a deal. I still think they are readier to walk out than most people accept. It's ugly and so frighteningly horrible, that I can't quite believe it's happening.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Single market

Whatever happens, she is not going to have a great deal. It is still going to involve a lot of pain, given that we are outside the customs union and the single market.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Brexit

It seem to me that if the PM loses a vote on a deal she gets from Brexit that's not good for her political career. I don't see any way of coming back from that. So it does suggest she will be wary of bringing any deal to parliament where she thinks she could lose a vote.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I don't know for how long, but I can't see this being resolved in the two years.feedback

Jul 21 2016

What MPs are desperate to do is to avoid voting on this at all costs.feedback

Jun 26 2016

The kaleidoscope has been shaken up not just in terms of our relationship with the EU but in terms of who runs our parties, who governs the country and what the country is made up of.feedback

May 25 2016

The UK is a major military power, major aid donor, and a large economy, which makes it an important international player.feedback
