Quote of the Day

Nick Clegg’s former aide Bridget Harris quits the party over its handling of the Rennard scandal:

“You go into politics and you accept the notion of a collective agreement for the greater good. After the 15 years I worked in the Lib Dems I realised there is no greater good, just everyone doing a s**t job.”

    The missing letters are IT.

    Coincidentally another place where they are doing a shit job. But not nearly as bad as the main chance.

    Respect for Bridget for being the only soul who still regards principles as important in the LibDems.

      Hogie – have you checked out the pigs I spoke to in London in October 2013 – who within 2 days ‘closed down’ my lawful complaint and move to have McBride indicted for multiple acts of criminal activity?

      Or that the said pigs – failed to inform me of their within 2 days closing down – for over 2 months and who were told in polite terms / ordered to reopen their investigation – but who have since ‘practiced silence’?

    I am utterly horrified and astounded by the accusations of sexual harassment against women by Lord Rennard. I had absolutely no idea there was a heterosexual in the Liberal party.

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.”
