Damian Green quotes

May 22 2017 - Labour Party

I think this will focus people's minds on the fact that in less than a month's time Jeremy Corbyn could be leading the Brexit negotiations. Given Labour's complete lack of credibility, nonsensical economic policy, as well as their other policies, nobody surely wants that.feedback

May 22 2017

We have set out this policy which we're not going to look at again, there will be a green paper covering both social care and health coming out in the summer.feedback

May 21 2017 - Labour Party

If they are in genuine need of the winter fuel payment they will still get it ... That's what we're going to consult on after the election. That's the sensible way to do it. That is the way a grown-up government will operate. The difference between the Conservative party and the Labour party is that we produce realistic policies to deal with the real problems of this country.feedback

May 21 2017

I suspect that figure requires heroic assumptions. She should vote Conservatives and her children should vote Conservative because whatever level of care she needs, that removes that terrible decision of how long should you try and keep someone at home or maybe put them into residential care.feedback

May 20 2017

The world is not the same now as it was in the mid-1970s, the priorities for government are not the same. One of the things that's happened to politics is a lot of the old certainties have gone and the ability to place someone on the left/right spectrum is more difficult than it used to be.feedback

May 20 2017 - Labour Party

Those few politicians that are straightforwardly ideological now look out of date. It's perfectly easy to place Jeremy Corbyn on an ideological spectrum, on the far left, because all of his views were formed a long time ago and none of them have changed. It's more difficult with someone like Theresa, who does react to the modern world.feedback

May 20 2017

It would be preferable, massively preferable, to have a good deal than not a deal.feedback

May 20 2017 - Women

Attempting to put her in a Thatcherite or non-Thatcherite mould is pointless because the world has moved on so much. The similarity is that Mrs Thatcher saw dragons to be slain and was a tough-minded woman who succeeded. Theresa is a tough-minded woman who succeeds, but there are completely different dragons to be slain. Tough. She's a tough individual.feedback

May 20 2017

There are two things you can do as a Remainer, as I was. You can either say we argued the case and we lost, so now we have to think about what is best for the country, or you can continue trying to play games to say it didn't really happen, and can we reverse it. It seems overwhelmingly more sensible and more in the interests of this country to ensure the government gets the best deal here – to get a close and special partnership with the EU.feedback

May 20 2017 - Labour Party

Given this huge historic task, you have got a pretty stark choice of leaders – Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn – and that is what we are pointing out to the country. No negotiation has ever succeeded without an element of compromise and similarly no compromise ever satisfies everyone 100%. I am sure that all sensible people recognise that first of all there is a deal to be done that is mutually beneficial. That is the first thing you need.feedback

Apr 23 2017

Well, we're absolutely not, we haven't had a go at people on lower incomes, indeed we have specifically tried to and been successful in supporting them at a time when the public finances have had extreme difficulty so of course that's what we, that's what a Conservative government, a re-elected Conservative government would continue to want to do.feedback

Apr 23 2017

There are groups in society in certain areas of the country and in certain parts of society that feel that life has become unfair, that even if they are working hard and doing the best for their families that somehow they are getting a bad deal and that does involve changing things like the energy market.feedback

Apr 23 2017 - Oil

So the difference is that we would have Ofgem setting the limit, so it would be a cap, so it would be more flexible, it would be able to reflect market conditions so the market would still have an influence. If the oil price fell again then consumers would benefit in a way they wouldn't have done under Ed Miliband's proposal.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Unemployment

This is yet another strong set of figures, with unemployment at a rate that hasn't been beaten since the 1970s and more vacancies than ever before. More people are finding full-time jobs and average wages have grown yet again, meaning more families have the security of a regular wage.feedback

Mar 16 2017

I'm committed to tackling disadvantage and these figures confirm that work is the best route out of poverty. Working parents help the whole family because of the dignity and security that comes from having a job.feedback

Jul 13 2016

She had a very clear sense of long-term direction as well as the capacity to do the detail. She wasn't to be pushed aside or pushed about.feedback

Aug 30 2012

You simply can't allow in a properly run immigration system an institution, whether it is an academic institution or an employer, to simply carry on not being able to reinforce those rules properly.feedback

Nov 12 2009

There is no new policy announcement. And what I would like to hear from Gordon Brown is some sort of apology for the fact that over 12 years the government has got immigration badly wrong . Net immigration ran at 200,000 a year for many years.feedback
