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.”

    Is the Big Society going to be run by Catholics? Davis is out of touch with ordinary people. When you talk about Big Society no one knows wtf it is. Some people are catching on to the idea that it means doing something for nothing or funding from dead people’s bank accounts. Big Society is not exactly an easy concept to sell to the people. The Big Experiment is what it actually is.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



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.
