Soundbyte 1

Soundbyte:I've said I'll stand for a full second term [as Prime Minister]. But I think after that it will be time for new leadership. Terms are like Shredded Wheat - two are wonderful but three might just be too many.

Soundbyte 2

Soundbyte:I've lost words to describe how England played. That was pathetic. It was always going to happen but there's a way to lose. What really disappointed me was when England won at The Oval, everyone was out there - the players, the backroom team. When you lose, you lose as one. Not one of the backroom team was out there today.
Said by:Michael Vaughan

Soundbyte 3

Soundbyte:The atmosphere during the last hour in Brisbane was as hostile as I have experienced. I have absolutely no problem about any of what the Australians were doing on the field, I probably dish it out more than most in the field, so I generally get it back more than most. I expect it and accept it.
Said by:James Anderson

Date:Sun, Dec 1st 2013

Soundbyte 4

Soundbyte:We've one man to thank for tonight's result and that's Gareth Bale. He's the difference and his wonder goals are continuing. I can't say I've ever seen anyone score so many in such a short time. I think that's the best of the lot, and there's not a lot you can do about it at that stage of the game.
Said by:Sam Allardyce

Date:Tue, Feb 26th 2013

Soundbyte 5

Soundbyte:It's unthinkable that someone earning four times more than the Prime Minister has not got ideas for the shake-up of the sport. The LTA is one of the wealthiest sporting organisations in the country and it's my honest and genuine opinion that they are useless.
Said by:Baroness Billingham
About:the Lawn Tennis Association

Soundbyte 6

Soundbyte:I'm really proud for the boy. That was a real test of a champion for me. I love watching tennis. It was more nerve-wracking than a Premier League match. I'm usually in control of my own situation but I wasn't in control tonight.
Said by:Sir Alex Ferguson

Soundbyte 7

Soundbyte:They tend to deal in caricatures ... it takes something that has a tiny kernel of truth in it, perhaps, and stretches it far beyond where it can honestly go.

Topic:Leveson Inquiry
Said What?:Former Tory Prime Minister John Major on the accuracy of some press reporting...
Date:Tue, Jun 12th 2012

Soundbyte:It's a great privilege to be involved. I can't quite believe people have actually turned up, I thought I would be just be carrying it around, waving to the ducks.
Said by:Matt Smith
Topic:Olympics
Said What?:The current Doctor Who on the fact that lots of people turned up to watch the Olympic torch relay between Cardiff and Swansea...
Date:Sat, May 26th 2012

Soundbyte 9

Soundbyte:These boys can be regarded as being as successful as the 1970s side - three Grand Slams since 2005 is fantastic. I think there was a mental and physical turning point in the World Cup and they have built on it.
Said by:Jonathan Davies

Said What?:Former player Jonathan Davies on Wales winning the Six Nations grand slam again...
Date:Sun, Mar 18th 2012

Soundbyte 10

Soundbyte:The solution to excessive borrowing and debt cannot be more borrowing and debt, and now we have a government that knows it... The money you were promised by the last Labour government never existed, it was never there, and we have been left with the task of telling you the truth.
Said by:William Hague
Topic:Politics
Said What?:The Foreign Secretary at the start of the Conservative Party Conference...
