Quote of the Day

Hugo Rifkind writes on the Labour Leadership contest…

“They’re having the leadership contest that none of them had the guts to have two years ago; promising to do all the things they didn’t do when they could have actually done them.”

    Sad but true. And not only can’t they do what they are promising, but they almost certainly won’t do them when they do get into power!

    All Lib Dems are tossers says:

    We should have our own version of the Nurenberg trials for this lot. They were all part and parcel of sending our troops to illegal wars [so that B.Liar & co. could become millionaires] and now, just like the mindless b*stards at those trials, say they were only following orders!. I know old Diane ‘I have nothing more to say’ was not in the Labour Government, but she hardly shouted her dissent from the roof tops did she? Now, they’re all protesting that they really didn’t have much to do with anything. What utter tossers!

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
