Quote of the Day

David Davis was overheard explaining…

“The corollary of the Big Society is the smaller state. If you talk about the small state, people think you’re Attila the Hun. If you talk about the Big Society, people think you’re Mother Teresa.”

David Davis Puts Boot in, Gives Cameron a Flogging,
Mocks “Brokeback Coalition”

The Boot & Flogger in Southwark is the perfect place for a free-marketeer to conspire, since it was until recently the only hostelry in the land that had the right to sell wine without having a licence, thanks to a charter granted by Queen Elizabeth I in 1567.

The FT’s offices are nearby and it was David Davis’ misfortune that an FT hack was there on Thursday to overhear him referring to the “Brokeback Coalition”.

Hardly startling revelations that right-wingers are not overjoyed that Downing Street seems to care more about fifty odd LibDem MPs than two hundred Tory MPs. Just read ConservativeHome and you will see the same sentiments there almost daily…

Quote of the Day

Dominic Cummings blasts Sir Jeremy:

“Heywood is more important than anyone in the cabinet, apart from Cameron and Osborne, and arguably more important than Osborne. He sits right next to the prime minister. He has him completely by the balls and Cameron does not do anything without Heywood’s permission.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
