"He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree."David Cameron on Roy L. Smith
"The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live."David Cameron on George Carlin

"We have the character of an island nation: independent, forthright, passionate in defence of our sovereignty. We can no more change this British sensibility than we can drain the English Channel. And because of this sensibility, we come to the European Union with a frame of mind that is more practical than emotional."
