Seasoned Cabinet Office mandarin Emran Mian is off to become the Director of the zero-impact Social Market Foundation wonk shop when Ian Mulheirn quits in August. In his spare time Mian writes novels about murder suspect bankers. Sounds about right…

    I should like to wish the England cricket team the very best of luck.

    The Aussies should have no chance and their bowler,Siddle is blood awful.

      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

    Nationalsozialismus had more in common with communism and socialism than it differed from them, especially where personal freedoms were involved.

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.”
