Quote of the Day

Nigel Farage is asked by Andrew Neil about his party’s support for a compulsory dress code for taxi drivers and repainting trains in traditional colours:

“Do we? News to me… I’ve never read that. I’ve no idea what you’re talking about. When it comes to websites, I’m not the expert.”

    Farage is so competent he’d fit right in with the Cabinet.

    Sounds good. I’d also like all chimney sweeps to doff their threadbare tweed caps to us in public, whist making cheerful commentary about the weather in a slightly over the top Cockney accent.

    “Mornin’ squire! A bit parky today and no mistake, Gaw’d bless ya and give me best regards to the missus!”

    I think anyone would find it hard to run such a bloated government machine competently in this era of the internet and the 24 hour news cycle

    That makes sense!

    Mr FaRAGE doesn’t appear to be the brightest lamp in street.

    There should be a formal dress code for all bbc presenters; clown outfits. Or maybe Pinnochio outfits, nazi outfits, mao coats, stalin moustaches or che berets.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
