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…

      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

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
