      Peter Siddle has had quite a good first day. Helped by some shonky batting, but fair play to the man.

    Try explaining to a lefty pleb type that Hitler was a Socialist then sit back and watch the fireworks, what a bunch of mugs, so far I have had:

    – It was a different kind of Socialism.
    – He only said he was Socialist to gain power.
    – I am making it up.

    Ha ha ha ha

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!
