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.

    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.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
