    This the same IPPR whose Tim Finch was one of the slack jawed idiots who were always popping up during the last decade to remind us how wonderful immigration was and how anyone who disagreed was a waaycist!

    News – Annette Brook MP to abandon Lib Dem Ship – she’s not best pleased about the Rennard scandal.

    I wonder how many conspiracies to pervert the court of jesters Murdoch has known about or even influenced for decades?

    When Thatcher dies, will the UK follow Venezuela and have her permanently lie in state forever?

    Ed Miliband says:

    Our “Apology We Got It All Wrong Bandwagon” is ready to rumble. Yes I know we still have the same faces from when we agreed with Gordon Brown, but you know we can now be trusted.

    I think you mean that Andrew Adonis is the new CHAIRMAN of trustees. “Chair” is politically correct baloney.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
