      Any farm animal with a rosette commands a good price. Don’t like these queer folk using our rosettes to make themselves look good. Is that Londoners for you. Too much time, money and town air.

    If Ed Balls plays football anything like the way he managed the economy he will simply score own-goal after own-goal!

    Of course, Ed Milliband would be the team captain, we’ll at least in name, because the real decisions would come from Len McClusky shouting on the sidelines, like some kind of demented Alex Ferguson.

    As socialism sets out to bite the hand that feeds it, and to undermine with taxpayers money the state it leeches off, whilst often living high on the hog oneself at state expense (vide Common Purpose) this was a fine collection of the folk who during their lives and in the last twenty five years have done huge harm to this country.
