Quote of the Day

Janan Ganesh nails it:

“Labour – its front bench and back rooms alike – is now led by people who spent a decade believing that Tony Blair was a problem and Gordon Brown was the answer.”

    Ah to be perfectly honest I was delighted the Psycho Jesus Bliar was replaced by the nutty professor. Fucking Delighted. But with benefit of hindsight, we are well rid of both of them.

    If the answer was Gordon Brown then the question must have been shit-related.

      I think the question was do you want to keep the murdering Bliar as PM or make way for the Nutty Professor Brown?

    If Paolo Di Canio was to become the next EU President he would feel at home.

      Say what you like about him but none of his teams has gone bankrupt or had most of its players unemployed or stolen money from its fans’ bank accounts.

    Yeah, Gordon was such a good idea that he lost them the election. Do these people have any “great ideas” for 2015– you know, when voters get tired of the Coalition (or what remains of it) and vote it out? It would be nice to know in advance what those might be– is that OK with you, Ed?

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
