    You can’t have ‘Euston’ and ‘first class’ in the same sentence without the word ‘not’. Ye gods, what a monument to 1960s modern-movement crud.

    I’d have thrown the Hunt off the train, who does he think he is?

    All those boys hanging around waiting to carry his bath chair all the way to Londinium, has he no respect?

    “He’s paid quite a substantial sum; £160, I believe..”

    No. He going to submit a claim to be reimbursed his costs of travel. This will be processed by clerks who enter it on databases, and whose conduct is managed down an elusive chain of command and management, all in accordance with a set of rules invented for and approved by MPs themselves.

    He will pay nothing in the end. We, on the other hand, will pay a sum well in excess of his £160 ‘excess fare’.

    I think Mitchell ought to sue the Police Federation, BBC inparticular and Ed Miilband for constructive dismissal.

    This only happened because MPs are denied Zil lanes on railway lines. When the wonderful HS2 is built he will have a whole train to himself. Everything was better when British Rail had steam locomotives and state religion was compulsory.

        If I was Chief Whip I would assign a permanent Minder for Rees-Mogg because he could lose a General Election in the blink of an eye .

    When we had that Consultant in from Monaco I thought he said to save the tax payer money the Government should bulk buy goods and services .

    The real point about what happened on the Wilmslow to London train is that this Government does not have any coherent policy regarding train travel .

    On the subject of expenses. If Osborne had got away with tavelling 1st class on a 2nd class ticket. What ticket price would have appeared on his expenses? Come on! we’re talking about dodgy, slithery customers here.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



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!
