Stephen on the West Wing: “It’s ultimately not the West Wing’s fault that people took a brilliant, high-class soap opera and decided it was a manual for how to revive the centre left in Britain.”

 

Helen on tuition fees: “Where I think this issue is important is the clue it gives to what the Tory attack on Jeremy Corbyn for the first half of this parliament is going to be, which is an attack on his integrity.”
