    So he could have stayed and earned his salary or leave with an unearned salary? Very difficult choice?

    Arthur Hugh Clough says:

    Lord P may have had this in mind:

    “Thou shalt not kill, but needst not strive,
    Officiously to keep alive…”

    Which in modern day lingo means: “Go kill yourself, as I sit here watching and don’t stop you.”

    The BBC is the only institution where you pay twice for the same service. Buy One Pay For It Twice. Buy now while stocks last.

    I have never sacked anyone as I always believe the other person could be me. I am one of the elite so I am not expected to know, believe, or practice modern international management standards.

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!
