Fred Metcalf

The Biteback Dictionary of Humorous Political Quotations

“Politics is no laughing matter — unless you've got Fred Metcalf's Dictionary of Humorous Political Quotations. From the wit that made Boris a contender to the best of George W. Bush, this book will have you in stitches. Bankers to bin Laden, bumper stickers to Biden, and even a few topics that don't begin with B, Metcalf has them all covered. Churchill's gravitas meets Jon Stewart's modern parody — if you have a political (or a funny) bone in your body, you need this book. I loved it!” Louise Mensch. With this brilliant anthology of mieux mots used in the theatre of politics over the centuries, Fred Metcalf has conjured an indispensable tool for both the seasoned public speaker and the armchair quotation-collector alike. Combining politics with a liberal dose of sex, drugs and Frank Zappa, Metcalf has produced a hearty panoply of memorable political rhetoric to cover any occasion — a remedy for those improvising amid impassioned response as well as those polishing their argument with the choicest of truisms.

    … Balls is good at ignoring things. He is covered in a transparent varnish which sometimes makes him impervious to other points of view and to mocking laughter.

    less the learned prophet than a man whose breakfast has just gone down the wrong way after receiving a nasty surprise from the electricity bill.
