[who said that] higham's half dozen

Which of the six below is in this photo? American friends can click on the photo. Don't you Brits dare.

This series began weeks ago but the problem turned out to be Thursdays. So I'll try it on Mondays now. The idea is to match the quote and the quoter. The rule is that the quote has to be from the last fortnight and not so minor that the average person wouldn't have read it.

So, here are today's half dozen:

1] "Now, keep in mind, this is the same guy that said we'd be greeted as liberators. When [he] says it's a good thing, you know that you've probably got some big problems."

2] "She's … weathered many, many storms. ... If it wasn't for her, I most certainly wouldn't be here."

3] "I think he'd probably have a nervous breakdown. He's quite sensitive. He kept repeating himself like a parrot -- nothing happened, we weren't in the toilet."

4] "If we show weakness in front of the enemy the expectations will increase but if we stand against them, because of this resistance they will retreat."

5] "I have no intention to run. I can't imagine in any circumstance to run for office again."

6] "There's a real problem of people on average incomes feeling there's a sort of super rich class right at the top. We've lost a sense of moral corporate responsibility here."

Candidates:

a] Former Qantas flight attendant Lisa Robertson
b] Peter Hain
c] Al Gore
d] Barack Obama
e] Dame Helen Mirren
f] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
