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…

    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

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
