Quote of the Day

Adam Boulton blogs

“Two important sectors of our society now feel under a great deal of pressure, beset by plunging fortunes and public esteem: newspapers and politicians. As they go down they are turning in on each other with increasing viciousness – politician against journalist, politician against polititian, journalist against journalist.”

    No, the Third element in this is the Civil Service. They have to go – and soon, if civilisation is to continueas “democratic.”

      Bolshevik Broadcasting Corpse says:

      The 4th is the voluntary sector. Who do little more than try to scare people for money. Money that mostly goes on perpetuating their own self-existence.

      Mind you, without the MSM, they are pretty screwed. The Guardian and BBC regurgitates their press releases without the slightest bit of critical thought.

    The least important section of our society is/are the poor sods (You and Me) at the bottom of the pile who pay all their wages.

    It couldn’t happen to a nicer group of people.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
