Quote of the Day

Labour sources twist the knife into Axelrod in the Washington Post:

““You cannot spend 300,000 pounds on a press release. Axelrod can no longer just cash the checks and send e-mails. You need boots on the ground,” said a Labor strategist who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the news media on behalf of the party. “After all, he doesn’t want to lose to Jim Messina, does he?”

Axelrod said that he is open to the idea of becoming more involved with Labor after his memoirs are released next year but that “we haven’t had that discussion.””

Quote of the Day

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

Quote of the Day

The father of the 9 year old Akar Hewa, who was scythed down by Boris during a kickabout yesterday, tells the Standard:

“We have forgiven Boris. Akar was not really hurt. We had a real laugh about it. All his friends have been laughing too. Boris is quite big, so it could have been worse. Boris is very active and good for London. We will continue to support him, despite the foul.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
