Quote of the Day

The Sun mocks Cable’s “attack” on red tape…

“Way to go, Vince Cable. As the economy flatlines, the Business Secretary saves the day – by cutting regulations on the sale of chocolate liqueurs. ‘This is very radical – we are moving fast,’ declared Mr Cable as he went further by axing rules on fly spray and lowering the age for buying Christmas crackers… Thank goodness the Business Secretary didn’t do anything rash, like tackling the high taxes and red tape destroying enterprise.”

    If Vince Cable can declare the cutting of 130 ineffective regulations, then there must be another 13000 out there.
    He is awful. While I did not like Peter Mandelson’s lack of any ethical content, he certainly had more grasp of business realpolitik in his little finger than Vince has in his whole body.

    Mr Cable – what a joke. Him and Mr Huhne deserve each other. Somewhere else but in our country.

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.”
