Tony Blair thinks planning makes sense… “He would analyse it, explain it and predict its consequences with an insight that rose above the mundane expression of ‘they like this’ or ‘they hate this’. It would get to where the public might be brought, as well as where they presently felt comfortable. In this, he became a strategist not a pollster.” Tony Blair - A Journey Tony Blair talking about Philip Gould – one of his core team at No 10.

  15. 15. Stephen Fry wants us to be curious “If you are hungry for food you are prepared to hunt high and low for it. If you are hungry for information it is the same. Information is all around us, now more than ever before in human history. You barely have to stir or incommode yourself to find things out. The only reason people do not know much is because they do not care to know. They are incurious. Incuriosity is the oddest and most foolish failing there is.” Stephen Fry The Fry Chronicles
