Text Quotes
Politics now is rather like going into Starbucks for a coffee  (Rory Bremner Quotes) My first public impression was my French teacher, Derek Swift  (Rory Bremner Quotes) People may say that what I do is very clever, but it’s not really at all. It’s not Swift.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) When I was growing up, there were just the three channels, so as a nation we all sat down to the same meal at the end of the day. Now there’s been this explosion.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) Being a great believer in Scottish tradition, I followed the example of my fellow countrymen and moved to England.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) One of my greatest sadnesses at the prospective break-up of the Union is that it will set English, Welsh and Northern Irish against Scots in a bitter division of the debts and resources of the whole of the U.K.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) It’s a new world that’s very, very difficult to make sense of. But we have a new hope. We have a new man. America has now elected its first openly black President.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) It’s harder to take politics seriously, to understand the issues, than it is to drown it all in a sea of scorn. And while the world cries out for greater analysis and insight, we are distracted by bread and circuses, aka the ‘Great British Bake-Off’ and ‘Tumble.’ We should rediscover our tradition of satire. Of speaking truth unto power.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) When I first met Tony Blair in 1996, he was open and idealistic, keen to bring a breath of fresh air to government. But something happened - was it just the arrogance of power? - that narrowed Labour’s vision from purposeful reform and investment, to peevish and petulant pragmatism.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) When I think back to my childhood, it’s with a mixture of amusement and embarrassment. I was always forgetting things. My mum called me scatty because I could never sit still. But there was no sense I was suffering from a medical condition as such.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I used to do my Nelson Mandela voice to blag restaurant tables in Cape Town. It rarely worked. Now what a great city that is  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I’m supposed to be the director of a television company, but I’ve only ever seen that company as a vehicle for making the kind of programmes we wanted to make, getting our ideas on the screen.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) Anyone who wants to promote a car or a football tournament turns to opera. There’s a much greater public connection than the image of plush corporate boxes would suggest.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) For some time, Scotland’s greatest exports to England have included whisky and Scottish MPs. Or, in the case of Charles Kennedy, both. All these links, politically, economically, culturally, are part of my Union. Would Glasgow’s brilliant Commonwealth Games or the Edinburgh Festival be any better for our being independent? I doubt it.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I’m much more used to the TV shows, which are demanding to write and perform but very fulfilling.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) Scotland needs comedy more than ever. With the independence debate, finally after 300 years, reaching room temperature.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) Multimedia? As far as I’m concerned, it’s reading with the radio on!  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I love anywhere new and different. That’s the fun of travel. I’ve always loved driving through Spain, France and Italy - sometimes in an Alfa Spider.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I have never been good at doing impressions of women. Which is understandable. There’s a gender issue.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) For such a small country, Britain packs in an amazing diversity of landscapes: coastline, lakes, mountains, rolling countryside, villages and great cities.  (Rory Bremner Quotes) Or the Department of Education and another ministry were worried about duplication of effort, so what did they do? They set up two committees to look into duplication and neither knew what the other was up to. It really is a world beyond parody  (Rory Bremner Quotes) But let’s be clear. We’re talking about a country where there’s no opposition. As leader he can ignore Parliament and - sorry that’s Tony Blair isn’t it? Um, so he doesn’t even have to ask the country before he goes to war - sorry that’s still Tony Blair  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I remember driving home one evening while they were reviewing the papers on the radio. One of the articles was about me separating from my wife. It’s a weird thing to listen to a news report about the break-up of your marriage  (Rory Bremner Quotes) When you consider what Tony Blair was saying about liberty, human rights and that sort of thing, it would be terribly revolutionary to sell the speeches he and Jack Straw made in 1994  (Rory Bremner Quotes) People may say that what I do is very clever, but it’s not really at all. It’s not Swift  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I’m much more used to the TV shows, which are demanding to write and perform but very fulfilling  (Rory Bremner Quotes) British politics is more nuanced. Part of the problem with New Labour is that they are a moving target  (Rory Bremner Quotes) I am just fascinated by this reassurance from a menacing figure. It is rather frightening  (Rory Bremner Quotes) Now I’m instantly nervous about the demands of doing a weekly column  (Rory Bremner Quotes) If you put garbage in a computer nothing comes out but garbage. But this garbage, having passed through a very expensive machine, is somehow ennobled and none dare criticize it  (Rory Bremner Quotes)
