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!

    The hypocrisy of Labour politicians is nothing short of incredible. Its like being a part of the Mad Hatters tea party surreal

    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!

    And the “winner” is most likely to be the man who repeatedly betrayed his supporters unto the wrath of Brown.

Before Miliband spoke, a school choir sang ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay. The first verse of which goes like this:

“When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
