Quote of the Day

Alastair Campbell writes in his diaries that…

“Ed Balls spoke drivel, a never-ending collection of words that just ran into each other and became devoid of meaning.”

    It is Campbell’s fault because he gets drunk then dictates to Balls what he should write & say. Drunkeness explains why the WMD’s Dossier was Dodgy.

    Several years ago, before he was an MP, I heard Balls address the Urban Commission. The soup maker is right -all the buzz words and read from his overhead!
    A total waste of space and driven off in a big black car with chauffeur!

    How very dare you. I have a double first in drivel. That’s why I rose to the position of propagandist in the Nazi Labour party. Campbell do not mock my drivel, it is your own drivel you should focus on. Dodgy dossier! I did not support the Iraq war! I have to think up drivel for my reasons why.

The Prime Minister feels the pressure:

“I have to say that after the events I have been facing over the last few days, assassination would be a welcome release.”
