Quotes

"If people think that they can't get here then they don't book and that has a knock-on effect. If the county council was a business, it would be closed down."
Vice-principal Oliver Makower said: "A lot of work was sold and a lot was admired. We were thrilled as for the first time ever every member of the gang who was graduating sold something."
"In any case it's far too early to discuss that," he said. "David Cameron is the leader and he's doing a very good job. It will be seven years since Boris was last in Parliament and the job has changed enormously in that time."
"Since then I think residents have been impressed with the level of activity that has been going on. We've received very few complaints about it."
