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.

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
