Last quote by Rafael Behr

The party can’t keep relying on older voters, but someone capable of winning young hearts – in England at least – has yet to emerge. Just as trauma is said to turn hair grey overnight, the election has abruptly aged the Conservative party. Theresa May and her ministers are not physically altered, but their whole enterprise feels more decrepit than it did just a month ago.feedback

The most recent Rafael Behr’s quote is: “With the election over, the Lib Dems’ ex-leader had to be the opposite of zealous, evangelical and pious. And that was one pose he could never credibly strike. Success in the 2017 general election is a roving benchmark. Jeremy Corbyn is hailed as a hero by his party for losing well, far in excess of expectation. Theresa May’s leadership is in crisis because she won so badly, throwing away what looked like an insuperable advantage.”. In addition, all sources we refer have quoted Rafael Behr 14 times.

Rafael Behr quotes

Mar 29 2017 - Brexit

Even if the economy slumps it’ll make no difference. There will always be too little Brexit, never too much – and there will be no counter-argument to that. Stir salt into water and you get a clear solution. Boil off the water and you have a residue of salt again. But whisked eggs stirred in a hot pan cannot be unscrambled. Some changes are more reversible than others.feedback

Mar 22 2017

The platforms Labour and Conservative members were elected on in 2015 have been torn down – largely by their own sides. Parliament needs a nickname. It used to be common practice for periods of legislative activity to acquire monikers. Some were more original than others. A three-week session in spring 1640 is unimaginatively remembered as the Short Parliament. It was followed by the Long Parliament, which became the Rump Parliament in 1648, at the end of the civil war, when it was purged of anyone disinclined to see King Charles I tried for treason.feedback

Mar 14 2017

The prime minister has alienated all who counsel moderation while indulging her party’s Europhobes. There aren’t many rules to drug dealing, but one of them is not to get high on your own supply. The product is for punters, and getting wasted is bad for business. The equivalent rule in politics is not to be taken in by your own spin. Prime ministers employ people to push positive stories about them on Westminster street corners. But they shouldn’t consume that line themselves.feedback
