    Height of selfishness to bring children into this country of decline and debt.

    “Mummy, how did I get stuck with a Norse goddess’s name?”
    “Well actually, darling, who we named you after was the No. 11 cat at the time. ”

    Five will get you ten the kid is “Camille,” or “Ann,” when she grows up.

    My condolences to the children on the stupid names.

    Still, I suppose they could be called Jocasta or Airing-Cupboard Popsickle

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s ‘Revolution':

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



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!
