A worthy successor…

      I learned today that 3 Kardashians wearing jeans are less important than one lady gaga in her knickers.

      Daily Fail doing quite well comparatively. That’ll piss them off at Graun Towers.

      The racing post has a 1/4 the readership of the Guardian.

      In the interests of balance the BBC should have Kieren Fallon on Question Time at least once for every four Toynbee appearances.

        Good system.

        Littlejohn would therefore appear roughly five times more often than Polly.

    Wonder where the TPA get there money from? They preach transparency. But not for them.

      They preach transparency for public money. They are not funded by public money, and therefore feel no need to say who funds them.

    The TPA should stick to its brief and must up its game with better research on tax issues.

    Some really sloppy stuff recently not to mention the silly diversion into HS2 land.

    Come on guys.. get a grip.

    This ought to be compulsory viewing for all public sector staff, particulary those in the NHS. A superbly concise lesson that is applicable to any business.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
