“There are two sorts of political communications operators in this business. There are people who see the population as they would like them to be, and there are people who see the population, ruthlessly, as they actually are. There is the wishful-thinking element, and there is the winning element.”
Tim Shipman, All Out War: The Full Story of How Brexit Sank Britain's Political Class

Tim Shipman, Fall Out: A Year of Political Mayhem
