Iain Duncan Smith quotes

Jun 04 2017 - Human Rights

If we want to protect people's human rights the first thing we have to do is therefore make sure those who would take them away from them violently they need to be dealt with and that requires those companies hugely to step up.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

One of the things that I was concerned about in coalition [government] – I know Theresa May was when she was home secretary – was during the coalition the Tpim order that we brought in, which gives those powers, was watered down. And I think it was weakened too much.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

I think in all campaigns you'll get ups and downs, particularly when you're defending records, it's much more difficult as a government to defend a record, it means sometimes you get on the backfoot. But I think all in all I sense that the Theresa May that I know is coming out much more. If you watched the presidential debates all through the presidential election it didn't really change anything at all, and my sense is actually the audience participation debates are better than the head-to-heads for the very simple reasons that you saw last night.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Labour Party

Why would you have a policy in which you're prepared to spend billions of pounds to have a nuclear deterrent and then tell the world you'll never use it, in which case it's a waste of money and they will know that you'll never use it so it doesn't deter anybody. She started off this campaign by saying she could be strong and stable, I'm afraid strong and stable now seems like a bit of a joke, because she's seemed weak and wobbly in so many different circumstances. Whether it's refusing to debate Corbyn, whether it's her u-turn on social care, not standing up to Donald Trump.feedback

May 08 2017 - French election 2017

This agreement makes it possible for them to disperse the migrants. It's all bluster and puff - it [Le Touquet] suited them, and it suited us.feedback

May 08 2017 - French election 2017

We forget Sangatte was a nightmare for the Labour Government until they did a deal.feedback

May 06 2017

Maybe next time EU leaders could have a group photograph of them all standing there looking out across the Channel. It reminds the British people exactly why they voted to leave the EU.feedback

May 04 2017 - Brexit

If Donald Tusk wants to say any more on this he should simply direct any comments he has to Juncker. We could all do without the patronising finger-wagging of unelected politicians in Brussels.feedback

May 01 2017

It's to be wholly expected. It is all about Juncker trying to grab something for himself. None of the nation states have any regard for this capabilities. It is all about him trying to stay centre stage.feedback

May 01 2017

It is complete and other fabricated nonsense. It's clear and obvious that Juncker briefed this story with the sole intention of making himself look good. The idea that Juncker would look good in any meeting with anybody is a leap of faith and credibility of incredible proportions. This is all part of his self-aggrandisement and if nothing demonstrates that the vote last year to leave was a good decision it is this miserable and rude action of the President of the EU.feedback

Apr 25 2017

Post offices are part of the chain of integral elements in a high street which, bit by bit by bit, are being removed. The post office is an integral element because it brings people into the community, particularly elderly people who do their shopping there. The high street will therefore suffer as a result of the closures.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Brexit

The truth is that Labour is running scared that the Liberal Democrats will steal their votes. It is clear and obvious that they are in the worse of all worlds - they are in effect opposing Brexit and raising the prospect of a second referendum but haven't got the guts to say so.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Brexit

Remainers say it takes forever to get a trade deal. It takes forever if you are 27 countries trying to reach an agreement. When you are dealing one country to another it is much easier. We can do deals in a matter of months. Once we've left the EU we are free to look at this from a parliamentary standpoint and can get rid of EU regulations that aren't in our interests. We can get what's best for Britain.feedback

Apr 02 2017

That statement by (Tusk) was a lot more reasonable than I actually had any expectation of.feedback

Mar 31 2017

Once we've left we've left, if we want to change our regulations we'll change them. It's posturing, I don't know of any trade agreement that allows another country to decide what to do with its own internal rules. They can't dictate what a sovereign parliament decides for its own rules and regulations.feedback

Mar 26 2017 - Labour Party

What they are trying to do is sound like they have a view. They are being heavily criticised by their own party for having no line, and he is trying to give them something to hang onto.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Scottish referendum

Nicola Sturgeon has made a very big error of judgement and it's just beginning to dawn on her.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I was not happy with the deficit reduction target. I just don't think he is that good, Philip Hammond.feedback

Mar 10 2017

They must be friends of him or something. I read somewhere he was trying to put it out. It is total nonsense. I just don't think he is a Tory. I got into politics to reduce debt and the deficit. He has got to get on with it. I trust the Prime Minister.feedback

Mar 09 2017

I would like to see that kept, the ball in play, because it doesn't land until next year, so there is plenty of scope to look how this actually affects them and to listen to business representatives.feedback

Feb 28 2016

The general view at the time and I think it should remain now is that don't play the person, play the ball. We should take a deep breath ... This is about Britain, it's not about us.feedback

Jul 30 2010

A simpler system that reduces administration. Those costs that are really high for the taxpayer, reduces those and makes it easier for individuals to get what they are entitled to when they need it without major squabbles or rows or a real sense that they have to jump through 50 hoops.feedback
