Quote of the Day

Two-faced Chuka Umunna told Jo Coburn that he had visited an HMV store over Christmas, but when pressed on what he had bought, replied:

“Er…I actually didn’t buy anything.”

    Umunna’s response neatly sums up HMV’s whole problem. Too many people went to their stores and didn’t actually buy anything. Or went back home and bought it online.

    In my start-up agency we had a policy of ‘in the room’ claims when padding out CVs and experience to impress clients.

    Basically you could project physical presence at the time to infer perhaps more in credit than warranted.

    It can of course work the other way if poorly deployed.

    Ugh, it was even worse: he started the interview by saying that he bought vinyl in HMV but that he also supported independent record shops. Yeah, right!

Douglas Carswell’s side-kick Dan Hannan MEP pours water on the obvious question:

“I won’t be joining UKIP, though I wish Douglas Carswell all the best. He has been a superb MP, and it’s honourable to stand for re-election.”
