  • Quotes

    • Sir Humphrey: You just don't leave important matters in the hand of those clowns [local councils]. And as you've left education to them, one must assume that until now you've attached little importance to it.
      Jim Hacker: I think it is extremely important. It could loose me the next election.
      Sir Humphrey: Ah!! In my naivety, I thought you were concerned about the future of our children.
      Jim Hacker: Yes, that too. For they get the vote at eighteen.
