Quote of the Day

Balls chides Miliband on Europe:

“As long as we don’t allow ourselves to be caricatured as an anti-referendum party, which we’re not – we’ve absolutely not ruled out a referendum – I personally think that for now this is quite a comfortable position for us. If we allow ourselves either to be the ‘status quo party’ on Europe, or the ‘anti-referendum party’ on Europe, then we’ve got a problem. But I think we would be pretty stupid to allow ourselves to get into either of those positions.”

    If they’re going to be the Status Quo party, I take it they’ll be using “Break The Rules” as their theme tune.

    Wow that is vicious. Do you think it’s a leadership bid?

    So they’re the “sit on the fence until we realise what is the most popular position” party?

    Weasel words from a vulture party literally picking on the dead.

    Who gives a toss for the historic freedoms and traditions of this country, when you can juggle political positions and score points instead.

    Loathesome hucksters, all of ‘em.

    Some things don’t change with the Tories.

    Cameron is certainly looking much stronger in Europe. Bliar is prepared to sells us down the river for his own ends. Thanks to Bliar and his labour chums we lost our rebate and are forced to pay more to the EU.

    Does Balls want to be leader of the “Sit on the Fence Party”
    He learnt this position from his mentor God Brown – doing nothing is an option.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
