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.”

    In the language of duplicity, the truth of poilitical words and policies lies in the very opposite . . . . . so whats the fuss ? Bring on political reform what what

    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.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
