Quote of the Day

Michael Gove points out:

“So we have a situation where Labour would make it illegal for state schools to hire the people who taught Tristram Hunt history. And Ed Balls’ father – a brilliant scientist who taught at Eton for a term – would be banned from state schools.”

    “And Ed Balls’ father – a brilliant scientist who taught at Eton for a term…”
    Intelligence often skips a generation.

      Yeah but remember .. Eddie did contribute for many years to the FT LEX column …. no lightweight organ.

      Then he must have had the cerebral lobotomy just before becoming a Labour apparatchik .

    But of course. Classic ladder-lifting behaviour by Socialists made good.

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.”
