Quote of the Day

Too little, too late from Maria Miller:

“The last 16 months have been difficult. As you know, I have been working hard for Basingstoke and also doing my job as a Cabinet minister.

During this time, I have been subject to an intense Parliamentary inquiry looking at extensive personal details of my family life, as a result of allegations made by a Labour MP.

That committee has now published its report and I have accepted their findings in full.

I have unreservedly apologised for the way I handled and approached the inquiry.

And I am pleased that the committee has fully dismissed all of the allegations made against me.

Separately, I have already apologised and repaid an over-claim of my expenses, having myself drawn the committee’s attention to the matter immediately I was aware of it.

I have always sought to do the best job that I can in representing the people of Basingstoke in Westminster.

I am devastated that this has happened, and that I have let you down.

I can only hope that over time the focus will once again by on Basingstoke.”

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

Nigel Farage says:

“This is somebody using Parliamentary privilege to say something that they would be very nervous about saying in public. This particular line is something that she and others have been pushing since 2006. The answer is exactly the same as it has always been — it isn’t true, it is malicious gossip. Nikki Sinclaire wanted to be the leader of UKIP and will say anything that can be seen to damage me. Nothing she says surprises me in any way at all, she is capable of almost anything.”

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
