Quote of the Day

To mark the New Statesman’s George Orwell week, here is the man himself on the Staggers:

“An adolescent in a Glasgow slum worships Al Capone. An aspiring pupil at a business college worships Lord Nuffield. A New Statesman reader worships Stalin. There is a difference in intellectual maturity, but none in moral outlook.”

        hoarse anti 'pig-farmer' says:

        agreed
        if ever there was a blog where all are equal but some more than others
        or where the swines have taken over the asylumfarmhouse
        this must be it

        a blog where the real work horse is thrashed and worked to death
        etc

        animal ****

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!
