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

    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.

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.”
