„For 338 paragraphs the Franks report painted a splendid picture, delineated the light and the shade, and the glowing colours in it, and when Franks got to paragraph 339 he got fed up with the canvas he was painting and chucked a bucket of whitewash over it.“

— James Callaghan

„Well, that's a judgment that you are making. I promise you that if you look at it from outside, and perhaps you're taking rather a parochial view at the moment, I don't think that other people in the world would share the view that there is mounting chaos.“

— James Callaghan
Response to Evening Standard reporter's question "What is your general approach, in view of the mounting chaos in the country at the moment?", 10 January 1979; used to justify The Sun headline "Crisis? What Crisis?" on 11 January.

„Those who advocate devaluation are calling for a reduction in the wage levels and the real wage standards of every member of the working class.“

— James Callaghan

— James Callaghan

„I think there is a case for opening a national debate on these matters.“

— James Callaghan
Statement http://hansard.millbanksystems.com/commons/1976/oct/14/economic-policy-2 in the House of Commons (14 October 1976), referring to education policy. The phrase "national debate on education" is associated with Callaghan's speech at Ruskin College on 18 October 1976 but appears nowhere in the text; it was however used extensively in pre-briefing for the contents of the speech.

„I hate putting up taxes.“

— James Callaghan
Interview on BBC television, 20 May, 1965.

„A lie can be halfway round the world before the truth has got its boots on.“

— James Callaghan
Though widely quoted from his speech in the House of Commons, (1 November 1976) published in Hansard, House of Commons, 5th series, vol. 918, col. 976.; this is actually a very old paraphrase of a statement of the 19th century minister Charles Spurgeon: "A lie travels round the world while truth is putting on her boots." Even in the paraphrased form Callaghan used, it was in widely familiar, many years prior to his use of it, and is evidenced to have been published in that form at least as early as 1939.

„Now that the House of Commons has declared itself, we shall take our case to the country.“

— James Callaghan
