Quote of the Day

Tim Harford in the FT:

“As human freedoms go, the freedom to take your custom elsewhere is not a grand or noble one – but neither is it one that we should abandon without a fight.”

    Too late too bad! says:

    Sadly, it would appear that although the coalition (well the Tories anyway!) are getting Britain back on track and changing the whole culture of UK to common sense they will not get the due credit next year. Unfortunately, I think as the weeks pass it is becoming clear Milibollocks will win. Harperson, Ballsup and Droney and the unions will rule. They will fuck it up and it will be horrible. I can only hope a refreshed and refocused Tory Party under Mrs May or Mr Johnson can win 2020!

      Hmmm! says:

      I do genuinely hope not! There’s aways still a surprise chance Scotland might vote yes and really lift 60 Labour MP’s out of the commons in 2016!!!

        Ukip the future not Labour! says:

        I think people really need to wake up and smell the whiskey. Scotland in my view will vote Yes and from the study I’ve done amongst my family friends and neighbours and workmates UKIP are going to take around 100 english seats. Then a coalition with Boris for 10 years and Militosser can be sent packing!

        The only chance that Scotland would get a YES vote is if they gave the vote to their diaspora and the other citizens of the UK.

    Typical Beeboid and FT left wing “economist” (oxymoron I know) speak. Want’s his cake and eat it.
    Since this man has been given his own BBC radio programme he has become more stridently and ridiculously biased.

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?
