Time is not on Gaddafi's side. People ask about the exit strategy. It's Colonel Gaddafi who needs an exit strategy because this pressure will only mount and it will be intensified over the coming days and weeks.— William Hague
The most spectacular William Hague quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you
We have to face the reality of climate change.
It is arguably the biggest threat we are facing today.
I'm not, nor is anybody I know in government part of a nasty right wing clique.
If some of the people who write about mojo came with me for a week, they would drop dead on their feet.
People work hard and save hard to own a car.
They do not want to be told that they cannot drive it by a Deputy Prime Minister whose idea of a park and ride scheme is to park one Jaguar and drive away in another.
Unless there is meaningful change in Syria and an end to the crackdown, President Assad and those around him will find themselves isolated internationally and discredited within Syria.
The appalling crackdown that we witnessed in Hama and other Syrian cities on 30 and 31 July only erode the regime's legitimacy and increase resentment. In the absence of an end to the senseless violence and a genuine process of political reform, we will continue to pursue further EU sanctions.
We're not getting involved in terms of sending ground forces into Libya.
Let's be clear about that. And indeed the UN Resolution forbids that. It says no foreign occupation of any part of Libya.
Wouldn't it be better to have a watertight law designed to catch the guilty, rather than a press release law designed to catch the headlines?
How long do Syrian families have to live in fear that their children will be killed or tortured, before the Security Council will act? How many people need to die before the consciences of world capitals are stirred?
You can gain in your effectiveness as a politician from a wide acquaintance with the world and from a degree of independence that having some outside interests gives.
We are not directly involved in Syria.
But we will be working with our partners in the European Union and at the United Nations to see if we can persuade the Syrian authorities to go, as I say, more in that direction of respect for democracy and human rights.
Whatever happens in Mogadishu, in Somalia, will happen in Great Britain.
We have interlocking interests.
Gordon Brown promised to abolish boom and bust. He has kept half his promise.
On the question of taking credit for what goes right and blame for what goes wrong - having led the Conservative party for four years, I have never heard of this notion before.
I feel fortunate that, by the age of 40, I had crammed in an entire political career.I had been in the Cabinet and been leader of the party, so now I can branch out into other things... it is a very liberating feeling.
Today further EU targeted sanctions on Syria come into force.
The message is clear and unambiguous: those responsible for the repression will be singled out and held accountable.
In my view what you can't argue for is a system that is neither decisive nor proportional and can be indecisive and disproportionate at the same time.
I think Britain would be alright, if only we had a different Government.
Remember the No campaign is Conservative people, Labour people, people of no party.
You have to have as many defences in place as you possibly can.
But even then of course - and it's important to stress this - you cannot guarantee being able to prevent every attack or every kind of attack.
We are making progress militarily, there is no doubt about that.
You've seen the reports from Misrata, although reports of the Gaddafi forces completely pulling out of Misrata seem to be exaggerated.
When the Lord Chancellor violates the trust of his great office of state to solicit party donations from people whose careers he can control, and then says I'm not sorry, and I'd do it again no wonder the public think that power has gone to their heads.
Not all politicians are bonkers, but most of them are.
It makes life very simple actually. You could be giving a TV interview in howling gale and it no longer matters.
It is not my policy to hit voters during the election.
Labour have been listening for too long to the so-called experts who think that competition is a dirty word and that communicating facts to our children is elitist.
Governments that use violence to stop democratic development will not earn themselves respite forever. They will pay an increasingly high price for actions which they can no longer hide from the world with ease, and will find themselves on the wrong side of history.
When we said that no more areas of power should go to the EU we were right.
And now thanks to the European Union Act 2011, by law that cannot happen without a referendum. And we are just as right that the EU has more power in our national life than it should, and I believe as strongly as I ever have that when the right moment comes this party should set out to reduce it.
We hope that the long darkness through which the Burmese people have lived may now be coming to an end.
I thank the Prime Minister for his remarks about me.
Debating with him at the Dispatch Box has been exciting, fascinating, fun, an enormous challenge and, from my point of view, wholly unproductive in every sense. I am told that in my time at the Dispatch Box I have asked the Prime Minister 1,118 direct questions, but no one has counted the direct answers-it may not take long.
It was inevitable the Titanic was going to set sail, but that doesn't mean it was a good idea to be on it.
One day I will go back to my books and piano, but not yet.
I gave up lots of things I love doing: writing, and business, and playing the piano and so on.
It is the mission of the next Conservative Government to build the Responsible Society.
