Quote of the Day

Jon Cruddas on the cynicism of the Labour Party’s policy reviews…

“… this week is a really interesting one where we set up independent reviews to rethink social policy, economic policy, democracy, local government – they come up with ideas and they’re just parked, parked. And instead instrumentalised, cynical nuggets of policy to chime with our focus groups and our press strategies and our desire for a topline in terms of the 24 hour media cycle dominate and crowd out any innovation or creativity…”

      In summary the loonies are running the labour assylum which is why you have the vacuous meaningless catchphrases in the headlines that no one understands and no one can relate to. Long may it continue!

    Oh thank goodness other people didn’t have a clue what that means. I thought I was being stupid. Or at least I thought I was the only stupid one…

    From the very first day that Miliband became the great leader he has been calling for reviews or inquiries on this that or the other.

    It beats having to declare his position on anything.

    Bullshit baffles brains.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
