Quote of the Day

Marina Hyde on why UK tax is so untaxing

“The Hong Kong tax code, widely held by tax lawyers to be the most admirably efficient in the world, is 276 pages long. The British tax code, rapidly beginning to look like the most disingenuous in the world, is currently in excess of 17,000 pages.  It has more than trebled in size since 1997.”

Quote of the Day

Dominique Strauss-Khan at his sex party pimping trial:

“The prosecution gives the impression of unbridled activity. There were only 12 parties in total – that is four per year over three years”.

“I create wealth, exports and jobs. What’s wrong with that? Labour is promoting socialism – and they’re in danger of promoting communism.”

Quote of the Day

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”

IMF chief Christine Lagarde says Saudi King Abdullah was strong advocate of women “in a very discreet way”.

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.”
