There exists today a new path to peace. It is based not only on conventional Israeli-Palestinian negotiation, but on the potential for a new relationship between the Arab nations and Israel. It is an opportunity of unprecedented promise. We must grasp it with both hands.

We wanted to take things in a different direction on investment in public services, on helping those who were most vulnerable with things like the minimum wage and the social changes, such as civil partnerships."

"The Tories have hit on a way of getting votes by presenting the election as about 'strengthening the prime minister’s hand in the Brexit negotiation', i.e., they have turned a partisan Tory vote into an act of national interest.

One of the fascinating aspects of leadership is the process of decision-making and in Cheryl Einhorn’s interesting and insightful new book, Problem Solved, she writes about applying an analytical framework to improve the possibility of a good outcome. I was delighted to write the foreword for it, because in an increasingly complex world, it is a useful guide for many.
