Quote of the Day

Sacked Education Minister Tim Loughton twists the knife in front of a select committee:

 “Ministers rarely go to other parts of the department. Most officials never met the Secretary of State other than when he would troop out a few chosen people for the New Years’ party. That is no way to run an important department. It’s terribly anachronistic, terribly bureaucratic, terribly formal in that respect.”

    They don’t need to meet up do they?, they’ve got some gimp watching TV all day to tell them if something nasty is about to hit the fan. Crisis Management at it’s best. 24/7 TV watching in shifts with the amount of brown stuff hitting Cams fan.
