“I’d love to tell you but I can’t. Just look at me. Don’t you worry about that until tomorrow, goodness me.”

“I’m not talking to you on what you want to talk… Well I’m not interested in anything you say. You’re always so wide of the mark and generally so critical so I won’t even bother answering what you’ve got to say. Anybody else?”

“Don’t you worry about it, we are looking after it”

On being asked a question on condoms by a reporter: “Let’s come clean, Elizabeth. I thought you looked a decent sort of girl. You don’t mean to tell me that you are in that category also? What’s your lifestyle Elizabeth? What do you really think? Do you really think this is the way for the nation to go? We are being asked to say ‘you go ahead and play around, the Government will help you’?!

“I’m not interested in that, or in anything anyone else says”

“The greatest thing that could happen to the State and the nation is when we can get rid of the media. Then we can live in peace and tranquillity and no one would know anything.”

“You don’t tell the frogs anything before you drain the swamp.”
