Quote of the Day

Miliband guru Lord Glasman:

“We have an England football team of a government, and the reserves are no better. Neither our coaches nor our political leaders seem to understand the relationship between competitiveness and co-operation, team building and winning. We have been managed not led. There seems to be no alternative to conformist mediocrity…

Labour has not told a story about how the centralisation of power, in the market and the state, is the primary problem, and giving incentives to virtue rather than vice is the fundamental solution. And so the most original leftwing thought for some years on social welfare reform vanished almost without trace, reduced to a nasty Labour press release on how the party plans to force young people into training.”

Quote of the Day

Dom Cummings blogs on the PM calling him a “career psychopath”:

“No. 10′s first reaction was to decide not to react to my interview, then one of his friends pleaded with me to ‘leave him alone because Miliband would be even worse’ and another threatened me (incompetently). The fact that Cameron then blurts out an insult reviving the story four days later is an example of my point about the lack of focus in No. 10. If they can’t decide a consistent line on me, what chance on ISIS?!

For Cameron, someone who focuses on priorities and gets stuff done every day according to a long-term plan stretching over years, while ignoring orders from Heywood, doubtless looks like a psycho! I’m not sure which of us would come out ahead on the Hare test, but I know who is better at getting stuff done and it ain’t the guy in No. 10 watching Netflix with a glass of red in his paw…”

Quote of the Day

Former Gove SpAd Dom Cummings, on David Cameron:

“As Bismarck said about Napoleon III, Cameron is a sphinx without a riddle. Everyone is trying to find the secret of David Cameron but he is exactly what he appears to be. There’s no mystery to him. He had a picture of Macmillan on his wall — that’s all you need to know.”

On Dave’s chief of staff Ed Llewellyn:

“a classic third-rate suck-up-kick-down sycophant presiding over a shambolic court”

On the No.10 comms chief Craig Oliver:

“He’s just clueless.”

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.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
