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!

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.”
