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.”

      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.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”

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?
