Paterson in a Pickle

Eric Pickles is laying it on thick in the House about Owen Paterson, saying that he and the Environment Secretary are “two peas in a pod, two brothas from another motha” and that they speak every day.

Which will do little to quell the growing speculation in Defra circles that Eric is after Owen’s job on a more permanent basis…

    Pickles does look just the tiniest bit as if he’s working for the Gestapo in that picture.

    So, the man who thinks we should pay for lots of useless windmills in Africa to prevent flooding here wants to be S of S Environment?

    No thanks, Eric.

      We could always flay Eric Pickles and use his skin to make a giant umbrella to keep the whole of the UK dry.

    Don’t forget, oiks – the £11 billion I blow on foreign aid every year ensures we don’t get any floods. None at all. Spiffing good value, eh, what what?

    Tally ho!

    That pic would be good for the Friday caption comp.
    I’ll start the ball rolling early:

    Owen Paterson: “I think I can stem the flow if I stick my finger in the dyke”.

    Eric Pickles: “Stop it, Woodentop, I’ve only just managed to get Angela Eagle out of my head for the day…”

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
