We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Emily Thornberry is associated, including Trump, rights, and control. Most recently, Emily Thornberry has been quoted saying: “There are a lot of very good new people who have joined the shadow cabinet who have stuck with Jeremy Corbyn through thick and thin, very difficult times, and that needs to be recognised.” in the article Ed Miliband 'could return to Labour frontbench under Jeremy Corbyn'.

Emily Thornberry quotes

May 20 2017 - NATO

Overwhelmingly we need to make sure that our policy is up to date and meets 21st-century threats and no one can disagree with that, surely?feedback

May 20 2017 - Labour Party

They would not be able to defend this country. A Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour government could not be trusted with the defence of our country. You know there was a time when we gave up on sabres or horses. You need to keep updating your defence policy and meeting the most pressing and most obvious needs.feedback

May 20 2017 - NATO

Well no, of course not, if you are going to have a review, you have to have a review.feedback

May 20 2017 - NATO

We need to make sure any war that may be fought, will be fought on 21st-century terms.feedback

May 14 2017

I suppose if you judge people by who it is that you spend time with, the question has to be: Do you remember where you were on May 27, 2007?feedback

May 14 2017 - Northern Ireland

Yes. There needs to be a future in terms of talking to neighbours of the Falklands … but certainly not undermining the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands. I'm not going to judge you on you going to a reception with Assad and I don't think that people should judge Jeremy by trying to talk to people who might be open to a settlement in Northern Ireland.feedback

May 11 2017 - Human Rights

Like Robin, we will put human rights back at the heart of Britain's foreign policy. From day one, we will stand up to his administration, making clear that the special relationship with America is based above all on shared values and that if Trump continues to ignore and abuse those values, we will criticise him openly, as we would do any other leader.feedback

May 11 2017

Four times she refused to do so.feedback

May 11 2017 - NATO

Good foreign policy means good ethics but Conservatives cosy up to Saudi, Bahrain and Donald Trump. Under Labour that would change. Twenty years ago today, within the ornate golden walls of the foreign office’s Locarno room, Robin Cook set out the incoming Labour government’s mission statement on foreign policy. He committed Labour to protect national security through Nato, to promote exports, and to prioritise the environment. Then, introducing his fourth objective, Cook said: “Labour does not accept that political values can be left behind when we check in our passports.” He added: “Our foreign policy must have an ethical dimension, and must support the demands of other peoples for the democratic rights on which we insist for ourselves.”.feedback

May 07 2017

I really don't know. You'll have to ask John McDonnell.feedback

Apr 20 2017

I don't think that this election is about changing the Government. I think this election is about preventing the Tories from getting such an overwhelming majority that there is no possibility of dissent in this country.feedback

Apr 20 2017

I think there are many people on £70,000 who may well feel that their circumstances are such that they are not rich. Many people feel that the elite has not been taken on. People who don't think the rules apply to them. People who feel they can keep their wealth offshore and avoid paying taxes. There has begun to be a view around that ordinary people are the only ones who should be paying taxes and it's about time that stopped. It's been glacial and we can see there are people who take the mickey, and it's not fair.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - Syria conflict

UK foreign policy should be based on human rights and international law. That means putting some distance between us and an unpredictable White House. The world is a more uncertain place today than it has been for decades. We now face a period of renewed – and unexpected – confrontation between the United States and Russia, a civil war in Syria that seems only to be getting worse, and a renewed threat of nuclear sabre-rattling in North Korea.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Labour Party

I was surprised to say the least, frankly I was bewildered he wasn't suspended from the Labour party as a result. And then I was surprised that he wasn't thrown out. I think that he should have been.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - Refugees

By abdicating its responsibilities under international law, the administration continues to send a terrible message to the rest of the world on the refugee crisis. While it remains to be seen whether or not this new executive order will stand up in court, nothing in this announcement changes the fact that these measures are unnecessary, divisive and wrong.feedback

Jan 30 2017 - Human Rights

When it comes to human rights, when it comes to women's rights, when it comes to torture and the treatment of minorities, President Trump is already descending down a very dangerous slope.feedback

Jun 09 2016

But what we haven't been told is what they are going to do. When are they going to tell us how they are going to deliver for example free trade for British businesses whilst also imposing immigration controls?feedback

Apr 13 2009

Well, it was not a campaign. What happened was that there were two men who were talking about the possibility of doing something. They decided against it; they did not do anymore about it. Someone then hacked into their e-mail account and then hawked it around the newspapers.feedback

Sep 13 2008

She's never been Gordon Brown's biggest fan. She was one of the few people who didn't sign his nomination papers, so it's no great surprise.feedback

Nov 09 2005

Our criminal justice system is based on the idea that we make mistakes and if it wasn't based on this idea we wouldn't need trials. Police would just arrest people and put them in jail straight away but of course police officers make mistakes.feedback
