Quote of the Day

James Chapman twists the knife:

“In the shadow Cabinet, shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper has been accused of adopting a mysterious northern accent though she was raised in Hampshire and educated at Oxford.”

    She is just exercising her right to be a prat. Anyone who says anything else is northern phobic and deserves to be sent to prison.

    to learn good Northern Accented English, they will be watching reruns of “Auf Wierdersehen Pet!” and “All Creatures Great & Small”. There definitely will be ” ‘T Trouble at Mill” ‘coz these “Progressive” Liberal labour Luvvies will have to wear flat caps like Andy Capp, clogs, drink flat warm beer, eat Tripe ‘n Onions for Tea and keep a whippet in the kitchen….!!

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
