Quote of the Day

Dan Hodges writes

“This leadership election is dire. The candidates are exhausted. The contest is mired in tedium. There  is lots of sound, but precious little fury. We are a beaten party going through the motions, and it shows.”

    Bahahaha, Labour wanted a long leadership campaign to try and copy the Tory one in 2005 and couldn’t even do that properly. Idiots.

    What is it about Labour that always screams ‘student politics’?

    Should the headline quote not be:

    ‘The leadership candidates are all dire, tedious and exhausted going through the motions for a beaten party’

    Don’t they realise nobody gives a shit!

    McDoom, Mandlebum & Ali Campbell – unelected wankers, fucked the Country with their spending. We should not let them forget that – whoever leads them

    He’s probably one of the only NuLab spastics to have finally got it. I look forward to the Conference Season.

    Shame Postman Pat isn’t standing. At least he has a rock n’ roll background and isn’t only just another smart suited Marxist responsible for the destruction of the UK’s economy in a failed social “experiment”.
    None of the candidates are fit to run a bath, let alone the country. Some humility followed by a prolonged silence from all of them would be welcome.

    Does the advert to the left, sorry right, for the lying bastards book mean you can get one with 40% less in it? Maybe he’s left out all the bull shit and lies? I’d have thought they could sell another with -60% and a concise version with -80%.

    Have no intention of buying any of them and swelling the coffers of the Liars house buying budget!

    GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

    Such an expressive phrase since the Global Dosh-Dog swallowed the Emperor’s New Jewels.

Douglas Carswell’s side-kick Dan Hannan MEP pours water on the obvious question:

“I won’t be joining UKIP, though I wish Douglas Carswell all the best. He has been a superb MP, and it’s honourable to stand for re-election.”
