'Downing Street'

"Mr Corbyn was Labour leader up until the general election of 2019, where the party recorded its worst result since 1935. The MP was granted a pass to this year's conference, despite being expelled from Labour in Parliament in an ongoing row over anti-Semitism.  But his appearances have been restricted to the fringe, rather than the main stage."

"Labour's deputy leader said "common decency" had to be restored to the workplace."

""As we respond to the climate crisis with all the transformation that entails, we have a fateful choice to make.  "We can try and put a green coat of paint on an unfair, unequal, unjust Britain, or we can make a different choice.""

""He said he had "never made a commitment to nationalisation", instead proposing "common ownership" for services like rail and mail - two ideas he insisted were "worlds apart.""

"The world has changed since they were made but now the question is how do we apply them in the reflective circumstance that we find ourselves in going into a general election.

"I stand by the principles and the values that are behind the pledges I made to our members, but the most important pledge I made is that I would turn our party into a party that would be fit for government and capable of winning a general election and I am not going to be deflected from that.""

"What the public cannot see, they argue, the public cannot miss. To them I say, phooey. We have no choice but to make these improvements, and any delay is a false economy. There are staff currently operating the signalling system with Bakelite switches and levers installed in 1926."

"The referendum represents a potential watershed moment beyond Berlin too. It highlights the role that ordinary tenants – and grassroots organising – can play in developing policies for affordable housing while supporting communities increasingly at risk of displacement. It can be a catalyst for municipal housing movements across Europe."

Boris & The Hybrids

"... since its thumping 2019 election win, Johnson insisted he was ready to take the “big, bold decisions on the priorities people care about – like on social care, on supporting jobs, on climate change, tackling crime and levelling up”."

"... the government itself was unclear what “levelling up” meant. “You don’t level up by increasing the tax and cost of living on the working class. We have to be absolutely clear what levelling up means. Do we mean that we are going to give better opportunities to the least well-off, or is it simply a programme to move and invest more outside London? Both matter but the first matters far more.”"

"“We understand that your connection to culture is disappearing and you don’t want to lose that,” a police officer says in an audio recording shared with Guardian Australia."

"“The public will soon tire of Boris’s banter if the government does not get a grip of mounting crises: price rises, tax rises, fuel shortages, labour shortages. There was nothing new in this speech, no inspiring new vision or policy,”"
