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

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
