Quote of the Day

Mr Jay praises the British press:

“My impression is that the press in the UK could well qualify as the most unruly and irreverent in the world, and I have travelled widely; it is fearless, and it speaks its mind. To be described as ‘unruly and irreverent’ would be regarded by most editors and journalists as a badge of honour, not of aspersion. Many would argue that these qualities make the press in the UK the best in the world…”

    Which is exactly why the BBC hates them so much.

    If they would add accuracy, a spirit of inquiry, moral courage and good English to their accomplishments, then we would indeed have a press to be proud of.

    Best in the world? My arse!

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
