“[He clings] to data the way a drunkard clings to lampposts.”

—Former Italian Prime Minister Romani referring to his successor, Silvio Berlusconi

“I don’t want to be rude but, really, you have the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk.”
—Nigel Farage on European President Herman Van Rompuy


“The house has noticed the prime minister’s remarkable transformation in the last few weeks from Stalin to Mr Bean.”
—British Liberal Democrat Vincent Cable on Tory British Prime Minister Gordon Brown


“He occasionally stumbled over the truth, but hastily picked himself up and hurried on as if nothing had happened.”

—Winston Churchill


David Lloyd George on Sir John Simon: He “has crossed the floor twice, each time leaving behind a trail of slime”.

Lord Hugh Cecil on Neville Chamberlain: “No better than a mayor of Birmingham, and in a lean year at that.”

Winston Churchill on Clement Attlee: “A sheep in sheep’s clothing.”

Clement Freud on Margaret Thatcher: “Attila the Hen.”

Winston Churchill once entered a men’s room to find Labor’s Clement Attlee standing at the urinal. Churchill took a position at the other end of the trough. “Feeling standoffish today, are we, Winston?” Attlee asked. “That’s right. Every time you see something big, you want to nationalize it.”

Pat Buchanan on Bill Clinton: “Bill Clinton’s foreign policy experience is pretty much confined to having had breakfast once at the International House of Pancakes.”
