Lord Falconer of Thoroton: ...-term Parliament, so that if the turkeys with whom he now associates lose a vote of confidence, they will not have to leave government.

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...and the many government jobs that Nick Clegg, Vince Cable and Chris Huhne have been given. And why should they not be?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Economic Regeneration (17 May 2010)

Paul Butler: .... The recent Westminster election underlined how far down the list of the British Government’s priorities the North is: it was not mentioned even once during the election campaign, and, when David Cameron mentioned it, it was to say how many cuts he would make in the North if he became Prime Minister.
