Things people said over the last few days

‘In my youth, what is now seen as sexual harassment was seen as welcome attention. Actually, if men took notice of you in an office, you were very pleased.’

'Young women need classes in low self-esteem, not high self-esteem.'

‘I think Trump hatred is a very foolish move. It seems to me to be a sort of neurotic fear of something new.’

Fay Weldon in an interview in the Mail on Sunday.

'While Theresa May was serving notice of Britain leaving the European Union, David Cameron was in Kiev discussing his own downfall. His heart was never really in the European project, he said, making him a rather unconvincing salesman during the referendum campaign. But he skipped over his biggest mistake: entering talks with the EU with no plan for what to do if talks failed. He promised a new deal for UK membership but came away with almost nothing. Now he’s giving speeches for Ukrainian oligarchs. The moral of his sad story: never enter a negotiation unless you’re genuinely prepared to walk away.'

Fraser Nelson in The Daily Telegraph.

[Donald Trump is] 'a complicated fellow. As one journalist once said to me, is he the political Sex Pistol? In a way.

'What I dislike is the left wing media in America are trying to smear the bloke as a racist, and that’s completely not true.

'There are many, many problems with him as a human being but he’s not that, and there just might be a chance something good will come out of this situation because it terrifies politicians. This is a joy to behold for me.'

Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols
