I have a reputation for infamy.

Claire Fox

I am a passionate supporter of liberty, equality and popular sovereignty. These values have been championed by democratic giants for hundreds of years.

Claire Fox

Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

One thing I got from my parents was that they talked about politics all the time. They weren't educated or academic but they were interesting about and interested in the world.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I still consider myself a liberal in the Enlightenment sense of the word. But I have to admit that being a liberal these days is confusing.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

A cursory look at coverage of the so-called 'Free Tommy' brigade, centered around the alleged censorship of Tommy Robinson, a notorious anti-Islam campaigner, reveals how liberals shun defending the free-speech rights of the unpalatable.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Without democracy, we are voiceless subjects. But with it, we are citizens armed with the power to change our destinies.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Are Labour members inherently bigoted against women, unable to objectively assess political attributes beyond the gender prism? This accusation seems particularly ludicrous when levelled at a party so much in thrall to identity politics that it sometimes feels more like a student union than an organisation set up to defend the working class.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I think a lot of things have become associated with the Right. For example, an unapologetic commitment to progress and modernity is now almost always associated with neo-conservatism whereas it traditionally used to be associated with left-wing thinking and moving society forward.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I am ever hopeful that there are generations of young Chinese people who are really thinking about the future and what kind of society they want.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I think the influence of contemporary feminism has been very unhelpful to the current generation of girls. They are constantly being encouraged to speak out about how they feel victimised.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

We need a younger generation that's prepared to grow a backbone, go out into the world, take risks and make difficult decisions. Otherwise the future doesn't bode well for any of us.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

If a boy pings a girl's bra it may be unpleasant and annoying, but is it really assault?

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

One of the great things about journalism, at its best I mean, is its forensic, investigative truth seeking instincts.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

There's a palpable frustration with the assumption that everyone who's under the age of 25 has got the attention span of a gnat and isn't interested in events and ideas.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I want politicians to be held to account for their politics and their principles, or lack of them, but I find it irritating that we have a culture where people are more interested in trivial gossip than substantive matters.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

The notion that one's home is one's castle and you can pull up the drawbridge is not one that people in public policy circles believe in.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I've spent my whole life fighting for leftwing causes, so I can tell you, no one is more surprised than me to be standing as candidate for Nigel Farage's Brexit party.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Maybe the Tory party might, instead of telling the Brexit Party what to do, make an approach to the Brexit Party and say I'll tell you what, we'll stand aside in certain areas. That would be a very positive thing for me, let's work together for a new kind of politics.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Children are more restricted than ever when it comes to taking physical risks - one of the ways previous generations built resilience. Thanks to health and safety mania, leapfrog, marbles and conkers are now considered unsafe.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Sometimes, we just take too much glee in the downfall of people in power.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

There was such a sense of relief on the left when New Labour came to power that certain orthodoxies could not be challenged. People became desperate to hang on to the ascendancy of left ideas without really questioning what they were about.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I continue to take inspiration from John Locke, John Stuart Mill and those more recent freedom fighters of the 1960s who challenged conformism and repression.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

As a left-wing campaigner for 35 years, I've been arrested on picket lines, led anti-imperialist demonstrations and spoken at anti-deportation protests outside police stations. I've made speeches at street rallies, in prisons and universities and at pubs.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I've been inspired by the rank and file groups of Leavers that have sprung up from Warrington to Watford and beyond, organising pro-Brexit gatherings and marches. I stand in solidarity with their democratic spirit and determination to fight.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Would it be preferable to argue for a fairer system whereby the unremarkable should be considered leadership material? With such an attitude, can we wonder why mediocrity is now a mark of Labour's hierarchy?

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I am generally enthusiastic about cities. Here in the West there is a panic. Every time we have a debate about cities, we talk about the problems of cities.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Yes, we know that obesity is an issue, but it isn't the end of the world as is reported everywhere.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

If you are a young, white, straight man in today's society, you are in trouble.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

We tell children their wellbeing is paramount, but we are also guilty of mollycoddling them. There's a constant emphasis on their vulnerability, which is proving toxic.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

An ever-widening definition of abuse can incite a culture of fear and complaint: encouraging teachers and girls to name and shame could mean labelling sexually awkward teenage boys as sex pests.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I think the idea of journalists being neutral is very important.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Often I go to book festivals and they just turn authors into celebrities.'

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Public discourse degenerated. There's no longer a place for intelligent debate at universities, where people just work for degrees and careers. My own experience was how my trade union's lively branch debates dwindled to a few people round cups of coffee. There's a climate of people frightened to say what they think for fear of offending someone.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

The argument about the need to regulate the digital space has to be weighed against freedom of expression in our society, whether we are interacting in a virtual world or in the real world where we have the growth of so-called 'safe spaces.'

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Whenever excessive regulation is on the horizon, you can guarantee our kids will be wheeled out as a battering ram against adult opposition.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

What I have always thought is that there should be a proper national conversation about what kind of immigration policies we have.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

If you feel you're being condescended to and not taken seriously in the discussion, that can make people feel defensive.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Welsh voices and Welsh communities were heard in 2016 in their tens of thousands, in their droves. They voted to leave the European Union and since then they have had that slapped in their face actually often by Labour MPs who basically said we know better than you.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I could be earning a lot of money as a consultant, or gone higher in education.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

People conclude that if the famous can be dragged through the virtual public square and unceremoniously dumped, the fate of any random tweeter or the average man or woman on the street can seem even more precarious.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

If you challenge multiculturalism you are seen to be a racist. But it's a political philosophy that needs to be looked at. If you don't, you're taking it on trust, which is intellectually dishonest.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I joined the RCP (Revolutionary Communist Party) in the early '80s. I'd be in it still but it was wound up at the end of the nineties.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Free speech is carelessly tossed to one side in order to silence views and people that liberals label as intolerant.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

When Labour leadership challenger Jess Phillips urged men to 'pass the mic' to a woman on the top job, telling Sky's Sophy Ridge it would 'look bad' if Labour failed to elect a woman, she more or less admitted not being up to the job.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I think there is some kind of disillusionment in the West about the gains of modernity and of economic growth and it takes a form of skepticism about the gains of prosperity generally.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

We have all had to deal with cruel remarks from other children, and it has made us stronger as a result. But today every minor slight is analysed to determine whether or not it is racist, sexist, homophobic and so on.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

There is a strand of self-absorption and fragility running through this generation; all too ready to cry 'victim' at the first hint of a situation they don't like.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

We've lost a lot of regard for straight forward news stories, and that has then been supplemented by comment, not even analysis, which has created a lot of celebrity journalists.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

There has been far too much of journalists deciding they are on the side of something and going out to get the story, instead of truth seeking which is a different thing.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I don't want to be complacent.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

The idea of a private life has been eroded in the sphere of politics.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

TV and radio debates seem inflamed, with all that shouting, but real disagreement is always avoided; they conceal their lack of content.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

The first job of the Brexit Party is to make sure Brexit's delivered and if that involves electoral pacts, that might happen.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I have fought for open immigration which is something I disagree with Nigel Farage on.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Theresa May, a Remainer, assumed that all of the Brexit voters are racist, thinks we will use this to kick British citizens out of the country; it is despicable.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

If you lose an argument it doesn't mean you change your mind but you have to accept the decision.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I can only look at what Labour has done to the NHS here in Wales and it's not a good story. That includes on education as well.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I am standing in solidarity with decent Remain voters who respected the rules and accepted the result and are as appalled by Parliament's undemocratic antics as the most ardent Brexiteer.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I would never say don't have an argument.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

We should start off with the premise that people that we're disagreeing with are like ourselves. Try and work out why they think what they think.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I do not condone the use of violence.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

One of the great tragedies of Brexit has been that despite the fact there was an unprecedented public vote for change, Brexit was almost hijacked, owned, and controlled by a technocratic establishment.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

The truth is the Tories don't own Brexit. No party owns Brexit and that includes the Brexit Party.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I actually don't think we should ban Jihadi videos because I don't think that is what causes the issue of Islamist violence. We have to confront these things beyond banning them.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I'm very interested in the new industrial revolution, what we do in terms of energy, developing the north, ensuring there are jobs and that kind of vision.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Those who politically theorise the artificial concept of 'whiteness' infer that anyone who has white skin cannot escape their unconscious bias. If you object, you are accused of failing to come to terms with your white privilege.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

There were good-faith reasons to resort to extraordinary measures when confronting an unknown global pandemic. Most of us consented to the lockdown, even if reluctantly. However, that consent - freely given as an act of social solidarity - was not intended as a green light to giving up hard-won liberties, or a perpetual suspension of free society.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

You don't need to be a fan of wars or militarism to note that heroic action - whether being prepared to be jailed as a conscientious objector or putting your life on the line by joining the resistance - creates a sense of meaning when society faces a huge challenge.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

We already know that the experience of lockdown is a mixed bag. It is increasingly recognised that for many it can be hellish. Enforced leisure - if you are crippled with worry about debts, insecure job prospects, your family's health - is no holiday.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I am rather proud of my modest contribution to bringing democracy home.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

One thing we can be sure of is that Brexit will leave its mark on the E.U.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Constantly referring to past wrongdoings can become a substitute for developing a deeper analysis of today's foreign-policy challenges, of understanding what is new and different.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Brexit has acted as a catalyst encouraging more people to think and vote outside of traditional party loyalties.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

My political views have never made me insensitive to the pain and suffering caused to the innocent victims of events such as the Warrington bomb.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I confess that when I hear Boris Johnson's slogan let's get Brexit done it sends a chill. Because it's let's get Brexit done so we can focus on the important domestic issues.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I think that the European Union negotiators have gotten a shock. They were shocked when they realised the Brexit trade negotiations were not just going to be a continuation of those that happened under Theresa May.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

If you want to initiate a broader debate about racism, is it really healthy to create an atmosphere in which it is not only statues that are being toppled but a range of cultural artefacts, TV series, celebrities, columnists and controversial broadcasters?

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Many white people sense that they are being blamed for the sins of white slave owners and imperialists merely through some lineage of ethnicity. Activists' constant stress on white privilege can lead to an unhealthy defensive posture of white victimhood.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I have no truck with the faintly conspiratorial argument that international governments are gleeful about a public-health emergency to enact authoritarian measures.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

One lesson of the vote for Brexit was that citizens were fed up being treated as bystanders. One of the gains of Leave was the flourishing of a sense of agency and self-determination that it afforded to many.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Retreating to indefinite lockdown culture would mean surrendering what makes life worth living, a far more tragic cost than anything inflicted by a virus.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

European civil society and NGOs that petition for favours and influence for their special interests are often themselves funded from E.U. coffers. This creates a system of patronage that encourages self-reinforcing group-think and a cloying sycophancy.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I confess I had butterflies doing the first BBC 'Politics Live' of 2020. It felt like the first day back at school.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Sloganeering and name-calling have been some of the most unsavoury aspects of Leave/Remain conflicts over the past few years.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Left to their own devices, the Tories will squash the life out of what Brexit really represents in terms of the chance to shake up political life and overturn a complacent status quo. We cannot let that happen.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Some who campaign against hate, seem to hate the Brexit party more than they love peace.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Brexit has changed everything in British politics - it has blown open a cosy, zombie-like closed world of Westminster parliamentary politics. It has broken open the traditional line between left and right, which was already an exhausted tradition.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I'm not Tory but I do happen to think that the Government should be allowed to govern.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

To hear the Conservatives issue a command that all Leave voters must vote Tory, this seems insultingly complacent.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I do not want to give the state and the authorities the right to ban things on the Internet - no ifs.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

I think there's a presumption of a climate emergency which I don't think there is. I think there's a climate problem, I don't think there's an emergency.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

For me, normal means freedom to live life as we choose, from cramming into packed planes to go on holiday to crowding into pubs for birthday parties.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

If the widespread attempts to block Brexit gave us a glimpse into how fragile our commitment to democracy had become - reduced to a technocratic in-name-only veneer - reactions to Covid are a stark reminder that freedom cannot be assumed as a social norm that's deeply embedded into our institutions and our psyche.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

The media are so key in a national emergency, especially when opposition parties in the U.K. are - let us say - largely in disarray, even leaderless.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

It has to be said that one of the most impressive aspects of the parliament are the brilliant unsung translators, who ensure that whatever language you speak, you are understood.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

For many Leavers, having been demonised in the vilest terms as racists, stupid and worse, it is hard to simply employ a hug-a-Remainer approach.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Senior Tories have exhibited a brand of entitled arrogance that implies that they own Brexit. It seems that anyone else who claims its mantle can be pushed to one side. And that includes voters.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

Democrats need to value free speech and we should not be intimidated into giving an inch of it away.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

The paternalism of the Conservative party is breathtaking.

Claire Fox


Free Status Quote By - Claire Fox

You see, Leavers desperately need a psychological win. We need to feel our vote for change can actually change things.

Claire Fox
