Douglas Carswell wasn’t going to let Owen Jones get away with saying “I want to pay more tax”…
Who does he think he is, Charlotte Church?
Our generation’s Owen Bennett took on our generation’s George Orwell on Sky this afternoon:
“The thing for Owen Jones, and I think it’s wonderful that his career’s going so well that he’s now in the top 1% of earners in this country, but people like us who actually care how they’re gonna pay the bills need a government that’s based in the centre ground…”
Read how OJ made it into the 1% here…
From Panglossian cheerleader to doomsayer in the space of two months, Labour spinner John McTernan had some choice words after last night’s poll:
“The moronic MPs who nominated Jeremy Corbyn to ‘have a debate’ need their heads felt. They should be ashamed of themselves. They’re morons.”

The likes of Sadiq, Lammy, Cruddas and Emily Thornberry will be sweating…
Tory MP Simon Hoare has an interesting perspective on the story that Scots are losing the distinctive rolling “R” from their accent.
“I listened with great attention Mr Deputy Speaker to the Scottish Nationalists this afternoon, ilistened with great attention because we are told in the press that they now can’t say their Rs. Well they can certainly say their Rs, but when it comes to welfare reform and economic management I’m afraid they don’t know their Rs from their elbow”
Cybernats will love that.
