Quote of the Day

Boris told the IoD:

“The UK economy has finally reached its Costa Concordia moment. Because after two-and-half years of parbuckling the labour is complete and the rotation has been accomplished and though the damage is still I think manifest and the caissons have not yet been entirely drained of debt, I think you would agree that the keel is off the rocks and at last we can feel motion, relief. I have no inclination at all to hand back the bridge to the people who were at the wheel when it ran aground.”

    Once again Boris finds an appropriate simile to help explain a real world situation. He does tend to be one of the very best at this, I have to accept…

    Well said, Boris. Great metaphor. Our own Captain Coward, the former Prime Mentalist, is in hiding; sadly his bridge team, Balls, Milliband (minor) etc are hoping to get a chance to copy his example…

    Economy taking off Boris? Might be in London, but in the North, Midlands and Scotland it aint. With Osborne as the captain steering the country, its course will always be due South.
