Last quote by Simon Jenkins

The era of the dinosaur vanity project is over – money is desperately needed to redress the effects of austerity. Tough decisions are needed. They haven’t gone away. The great spending dinosaurs of the political dark ages, back before June 2017, are still roaming the jungle. Theresa May’s first decision as prime minister, to approve the £18bn Hinkley Point nuclear power station, is still crashing about Whitehall. Now the national audit office (NAO) has added its voice to those calling it a really bad deal. The project now has no independent supporters.feedback

The most recent Simon Jenkins’s quote is: “The collective response demanded by disasters on this scale must not deny us the space to move on. Life must be lived forwards. Are you grief or rage? Three days ago I watched a news crew at work outside Grenfell Tower. They were interviewing an elderly Muslim woman and needed a composite shot of the blackened tower, her face and a picture she was holding. They clearly wanted her to cry. I sensed her dignity in being unable to oblige. Amid the overwhelming sadness of the place, I felt fury at such an intrusion on private agony.”.

Simon Jenkins quotes

Mar 22 2017 - Terrorism

The terrorists’ aim is not just to kill a few but to terrify a multitude. For politicians and media to overreact would play into their hands. The current bout of global terrorism came to the heart of London today in a fatal attack outside the Palace of Westminster. The symbolism is impossible to escape. An assault on the home of democracy induces a peculiar sense of outrage. That people, including a policeman, should die in such an assault is tragic.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Sex

Underhand, reckless and naive: the US president has been some, or all, of these in pursuit of a rapprochement. But might he succeed where Obama failed?The devil lies in the definition. Bill Clinton “never had sex with that woman”, and got away with it. Jeff Sessions never had “communication” with a Russian ambassador, Sergei Kysliak. But it depends what you mean by sex, and what you mean by communication.feedback
