As the party conference season comes to an end, we're pretty confident many of the speakers will look back and hope parts of their speeches will be forgotten.

Unluckily for them, we were on hand to take down every word. But can you remember who said what?

Take our quiz to see whether you are a party animal or a party pooper...

Who said this?

"Apparently some Russian official said Britain is "just a small island that no-one pays any attention to." Really? Let me just get this off my chest... This small island beat Russia in the Olympics last year, [and] the biggest-selling vodka brand in the world isn't Russian, it's British – Smirnoff."

Who said this?

"We oppose racism. We oppose extremism. We oppose sectarianism of the left or right. We are the only party that bans the BNP from membership."

Who said this?

"You have permission to purr."

Who said this?

"If you are a Conservative supporting, gold mining, luxury hotel owning, Putin award winning, Tory ball attending, Russian oligarch, and you have got a £160,000 to bid in an auction, you won’t be on your own; you will be on tennis court playing doubles with David Cameron."

Who said this?

"Is it worse for politicians to forget what to say or to remember what to say but forget to do anything about it?"

Who said this?

"The more common you are, the more in touch you are."

Who said this?

"The real reason the EU won’t be able or willing to stop trading with us is that the German car industry won’t allow it. I just can’t see Mrs Merkel explaining to Mercedes that they’re not going to be selling into Britain any more."

Who said this?

"While it was the banks which caused the global recession, and it was the global recession which caused deficits to rise here in Britain and around the world, the truth is we should have regulated those banks in a tougher way... And so as we get the deficit down, we must reform our banks for the future so that can never happen again."

Who said this?

"Nick Clegg has informed us of his intention to form a new coalition. For the first time, he’s intending to create a full working relationship with Vince Cable. Mind you, at their conference Vince Cable did do something that was undeniably Tory. If I’d been there, I wouldn’t have turned up to the Lib Dem economic debate either."

Who said this?

"The Labour leader gave a surreal speech in which he described how he had tried to find material by randomly accosting young people in London parks, desperately hoping for inspiration - and yet he failed to mention the economy."
