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!

    Now what did i say the other day about the trick/ruse that Cameron was pulling – and in cahoots with the msm – peddling bull to garner sympathy for his busted Rse with the UK public’s growing hatred of the EU?

    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.

Peter Oborne makes a bold prediction

“I predict that Labour and the Conservatives will win between them a higher proportion of seats than at any election since 1992.”
