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.”

    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 ****

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
