Quote of the Week: Chris Patten

Antonio Lambino's picture

"The media tends to move like market sentiment.  One moment, the public square is full of bulls; the next you’re being clawed by bears…

Nevertheless, I think we have suffered too much from politics by simplistic slogans.  Making a coherent, well-argued case is surely the best way in the long term of trying to mobilize consent for any course of action.  It dignifies an argument – and those to whom it is addressed – to set it out thoughtfully.”

      - Chris Patten, Chancellor, University of Oxford
