Supercar Socialist: Polly Toynbee’s £135,000 Ferrari

polly totnebee ferrari supercar

Watch Polly Toynbee call a Ferrari a “misogynist motif of the patriarchal social order” and George Monbiot rev up a Land Rover as they ‘audition’ to be the new presenter on Top Gear:

Well at least Guido has a new stock image for Polly stories…

New UKIP EU Attack Ad

Refreshingly, UKIP are going after people who aren’t members of their own party this morning.

This new EU campaign video stars Jose Manuel Barroso, Viviane Reding and Martin Schulz:

A Farage-led ‘out’ campaign would at least be punchy…

Anti-Austerity Protesters Turn on Russell Brand

Not quite the reception Russell Brand was hoping for in the VIP area at yesterday’s anti-austerity protest:

“F**k Russell Brand… He should not be on the stage here… You have no f**king place here, you’re disgusting…”

“You’re a turncoat, Brand… sell us a book on revolution and then tell us to vote Labour… f**k off back to Miliband you tw*t.”

The People’s Turncoat…

Thwack! UKIP Wars Explained

The Daily Politics take on UKIP, in cartoon form…

Suzanne Evans: Farage Perceived as Divisive Character

Yesterday Farage said he would be “prepared” to lead the ‘Out’ campaign, a view not shared by Suzanne Evans on the Daily Politics this afternoon:

“I think Nigel is a very divisive character in terms of the way he is perceived. He’s not divisive as a person but the way he is perceived is as having strong views that divide people, so in that sense I think he is right, it will actually be somebody else who fronts it.”

The comments have gone down rather badly among Farage’s allies, though it is not a million miles away from what Nige himself has said:

“I suspect what we will see is somebody coming from completely outside of normal politics, somebody from the world of business or entertainment that hasn’t got any political baggage at all. I think someone like that may well emerge.”

Nonetheless, calling a man she has been accused of trying to oust “divisive” on national television is a bold move…

UPDATE: A UKIP insider gets in touch to add:

“It is people going on television calling the leader ‘divisive’ that is divisive.”

European Parliament President: “Britain Belongs to the EU”

As Cameron lunches with Europe’s leaders, the President of the European Parliament continues to do the ‘Out’ campaign’s work for them:

“The European Union and Britain is one thing. The United Kingdom belongs to the European Union.”

Hardly encouraging since Martin Schulz gets a say on any deal Dave comes up with.

Perhaps it was lost in translation…

Quote of the Day

Janan Ganesh on Labour’s soft left

“Ms Cooper does not believe the previous Labour government was wrong to run a fiscal deficit after 15 years of economic growth. Both she and Mr Burnham think families should be entitled to tax credits for a third child. These views are not mad. They are just a bit too left-wing for Britain. For any serious party, that amounts to the same thing. The soft left is more electable than the hard left but then Mars is more habitable than Neptune: neither planet will host human life anytime soon.”
