This Week… Living With Lions, Ear Scratch, Semicolons & GoodbyeS


"Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.” J.M. Barrie

“Remember me and smile, for it's better to forget than to remember me and cry.” Dr. Seuss

"Saying goodbye doesn't mean anything. It's the time we spent together that matters, not how we left it." Trey Parker

“What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.” Jack Kerouac

"No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other’s worth." Robert Southey

"Today, both parties are husks of what they once were. The Tories are in long-term decline, less popular than most strains of bacteria in much of the north, leaving Ukip (perversely) as a less toxic rightwing choice. There is no one simple reason: a general fragmentation in society and the triumph of individualism; the disappearance of industries that once sustained cohesive communities; the smothering of local government and unions; a political convergence that has left parties quibbling over nuances. These are reasons, of course, not excuses. But they help explain how parties have become the playthings of careerists inspired by their own ambitions and little else. The figures on the professionalisation of politics speak for themselves." O. Jones
