Quote of the Day

Jon Cruddas on Saturday told Compass lefties…

“The idea that you don’t move beyond Labour, that the party contains all the solutions and anything else is counted as betrayal, or is counter-productive, is a morbid symptom of our own decline and actually an obligation of our responsibilities to the country. Similarly a continuous preoccupation in members Ed and David who carries the flame or Ed and Yvette or Ed and Andy or Ed, Ed and Eddie is that Labour is not a top class PPE Oxbridge gig, the question is then, what is it for? 29 policy review groups won’t answer that question, indeed I would tentatively suggest that a couple of compass criticizing bedroom bloggers won’t necessarily answer supply the answers either. I applaud the Compass member’s decision to search out for new ideas and big inspirational political vitality aside of the confines of the parliamentary party whose culture resembles at times a Sopranos tribute band. I believe this change is essential.”

    You have Johanned that quote – he said “abdication of our responsibilities” not “obligation”.

    Cruddas and his goblegook language are a Leninist mating in hell.
    Time he went out to pasture. Recommend to Pakistan where his mates are.

    Only good news today is that a parliamentary commission states the BBC need to reform its complaints procedure and make it subject to outside scrutiny.
    About time too.
    Perhaps Patten may turn out to be a real Patton and blast away with this silver 45 on Thompson and his ilk on radio 4?
    Or will he be like the current UN Secretary General – more secretary than general?
    Jury is still out and he is keeping too quiet.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
