Quote of the Day

Fleet Street Fox opines….

“Ed Miliband blithely says he can win in 2015 and he will ‘relish the next 10 months’. If it’s anything like the last four years of misery and ineptitude it’s going to be like being skinned alive for those of us who think the Coalition needs to go in the same evolutionary dustbin as webbed feet and the vermiform appendix. If England are to qualify, Italy needs to win against Costa Rica and Uruguay and we need to beat Costa Rica 300 to 0. If Labour are to make it into Downing Street next year Ed has to utterly destroy Theresa May, George Osborne, half the alumni of Eton College and convince 20 million people he’s not a spod. What’s he doing? Waiting for the other side to destroy themselves, while pootling around in the wrong half while his own team whispers behind him. His strategy is to wait for the Coalition to leave the pitch open, then dribble up to the net and gently tap the ball in while David Cameron’s picking his nose.

But it’s worse than that. He’s actually got an open goal in front of him and can’t even spot it…. Anyone would be better than this. ANYONE.”

    We live in an era of 24hr news and internet leaks where the compromises needed for government just look incompetent. It doesn’t matter who governs or what they do, they’ll look like idiots.

    It does however take real effort to make an opposition look even more incompetent.

    I suppose that the drip of poison from that oily sewer worker, Mangledbum, won’t do Wallis much good. And Blur sniffing around the piles of shit he left, that Chilcott is about to point out, can’t make Liebour the aroma of the month. But, hey, Damian the Hatchet is looking to make a comeback so, that means, Campbell is in there somewhere.
    It’s the “Night of the Undead” meets “A matter of loaf and death”.
    We’ll know when things are really grim when they bring back Kinnock and Prescott to lend support.

    Got to give the girl credit, she wears her objectivity on her sleeve.

    I was going to suggest the BBC offer her Sidestepping Cover while Jasmine is still on FootinMouth leave, but Aunty seems to be holding firm for now.

    They might yet swing it if they don’t waver.

    I suggest Milibandwaggon gives a leading advisor role to “We’re all right Kinnock”.
    Then we can all rest better in our beds.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”

Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
