Quote of the Day

Rachel Sylvester writes

“Meanwhile, like new Labour with its red-rose pagers in the 1990s, Conservative HQ shows growing signs of control-freakery as party managers attempt to contain the message. Frontbenchers must provide a list of all lunches that they have with journalists and are forbidden to do unauthorised interviews.”

      We’ll see – quite shortly as it happens.

      But Conservative shadow cabinet members could do with improving their game. Right now their message isn’t heard very well. They need to sing like a choir otherwise nothing will get across.

      Labour still do this very effectively.

      Its not pretty, its not ideal, it would be great if for example Labour minister actually made substantive arguments and engaged in debate on TV – but they don’t. All they care about is getting the narrative across from their script to voters sub conscious without passing through the mind of either.

      The Conservative party have to match them. The alternative is 5 more years of Gordon Brown.

    [...] There’s dirty politics going on, folks and the aim is to, under no circumstances accede to the will of the people to have a say in their affairs but to retain control, by all means possible, of the reins of power in Westminster.  Guido posts on this. [...]

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
