Quote of the Day
Women's Lib? Oh, I'm afraid it doesn't interest me one bit. I've been so liberated it hurts.
I owe nothing to Women's Lib.
Suddenly women's lib had made me feel my life had been wasted.
I'm for human lib, the liberation of all people, not just black people or female people or gay people.
You have to grab moments when they happen. I like to improvise and ad lib.
The Lib Dems are not just empty. They are a void within a vacuum surrounded by a vast inanition.
The great advantage of the Lib Dems is precisely that no-one knows what they stand for.
I don't worry too much about the script, I just ad lib, like Pearl Bailey.
Women's Lib? Poor little things. They always look so unhappy. Have you noticed how bitter their faces are?
Now I can broadcast to an audience of several million people on the 'Today' programme. I can talk about the day's news. But on radio, believe it or not, we have notes and scripts. And while we might ad lib the odd wryly amusing asides, they come at the frequency of a suburban bus. About one every 90 minutes.
The Tories and the Lib Dems talk about social mobility, but, short of winning the lottery, the only way to guarantee young people from all backgrounds the opportunity to do better and to raise aspirations is through education.
What the Lib Dems have failed to do is offer any meaningful agenda for government or for power.
Although my seat is a contest between Labour and the Lib Dems, it could well make the difference between a Labour and a Tory government at the next election. In terms of international development, this choice is a very clear one.
I don't even pretend we can occupy the Lib Dem holier-than-thou, hands-entirely-clean-and-entirely-empty-type stance. No, we are getting our hands dirty, and inevitably and totally understandably we are being accused of being just like any other politicians.
Women's Lib? I couldn't stand it.
I will go out of this world feet first with my Lib Dem membership card in my pocket.
No one could ad lib like Peter. You would think that it was all scripted, he was so poetic, but it wasn't.
I am a big believer in women's lib, but I love when a man holds a door for me.
I ad lib. I've gotta bring my own into it.
Although there's a lot of focus on the Lib Dems, we need to keep our eyes on the far right of the Tories, who I suspect will become increasingly impatient in their appetite for tax cuts, deregulation and shrinking the state even further.
I was supposed to be women's lib, and now I'd exceeded it and gone over into international politics.
So our problem is not Labour, it is us, is making us attractive enough to gain disillusioned Labour support and to compete effectively with the Lib Dems for those loose votes.
In the year and a half I was on SNL, I never saw anybody ad lib anything. For a very good reason - the director cut according to the script. So, if you ad libbed, you'd be off mike and off camera.
One of the reasons I don't see eye to eye with Women's Lib is that women have it all on a plate if only they knew it. They don't have to be pretty either.
We'd dub the one that came off best into the final transcription. It gave us a chance to ad lib as much as we wanted, knowing that excess ad libbing could be sliced from the final product.
I think 99 percent of women's lib comes from technology making different kinds of lives possible, and then the social adjustment follows the technology - it doesn't precede it.
