Quote of the Day

Gloria de Piero on the LibDems choosing a man as their new deputy leader:

“This result comes as little surprise when you remember Nick Clegg leads a Parliamentary Party which has as many men with knighthoods as it has women MPs. When it comes to women’s representation, the Lib Dems really need to move up a gear. With just seven out of 57 MPs, they score even worse than the Tories.”

Quote of the Day

Jon Snow on sex and women:

“Sex comes into every evaluation of a woman, there’s no doubt about it. It’s there. Once you’ve established a friendship or a working relationship with a woman, it’s parked. But it’s an interesting barrier. When you’ve gone through it and arrived at the other side, it’s never a problem again. Well I’m not saying it is a problem at all, it’s rather a delicious thing really, ‘what might have been?’ or ‘what could be’. It’s a natural animal element of sustaining life.”

Quote of the Day

Nigel Farage is asked by Andrew Neil about his party’s support for a compulsory dress code for taxi drivers and repainting trains in traditional colours:

“Do we? News to me… I’ve never read that. I’ve no idea what you’re talking about. When it comes to websites, I’m not the expert.”

Quote of the Day

Nick Clegg’s former aide Bridget Harris quits the party over its handling of the Rennard scandal:

“You go into politics and you accept the notion of a collective agreement for the greater good. After the 15 years I worked in the Lib Dems I realised there is no greater good, just everyone doing a s**t job.”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
