“once again we’re living above the shop!”

Sajid Javid, Conservative Party Conference, 30th September 2019

In this quote, Sajid Javid references the fact that he is the Chancellor of the Exchequer living upstairs in No. 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor and his family traditionally live above his office in No. 11 (as does the Prime Minister in No. 10).
