JOHN PRESCOTT: ‘I suspect language isn’t his first language’.
TRAVEL: ‘They say that travel broadens the mind, but the Nazis were very narrow-minded… and they travelled extensively, throughout Europe’.
ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR: ‘People knock ASBOs but you have to bear in mind, they are the only qualifications some of these kids are going to get’.
JESUS: ‘You can look at any painting ever done of Jesus and spot immediately that he’s not English -’cos he’s very often shown wearing sandals — but never with socks’.
HER HOMETOWN: ‘Erith isn’t twinned with anywhere, but it does have a suicide pact with Dagenham’.
On WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION: ‘They’ve looked everywhere — they’ll be in the last place they look, won’t they. I’m like that with scissors. Of course, the difference is I know I have some scissors’.”
