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 ****

“I think Mail online comments are a telling indication of public opinion.”

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
