Quote of the Day

The Sun on Chris Huhne:

“Huhne dug his own Grand Canyon . . . and still he keeps shovelling.

The crooked Lib Dem got his wife to take his speeding points, then cost taxpayers a fortune denying it right up until the last-minute confession for which he was jailed.

He now bleats that he could have dodged justice if only his wife’s lying friend Judge Constance Briscoe — a witness in his case — had been exposed earlier by her own profession.

The deluded fool believes this was an internal cover-up akin to the Stafford Hospital scandal. Yes, the scandal where 1,200 people died.

Huhne broke the law and was rightly punished. He needs to move on and count his few blessings.

Such as having newspaper pals still prepared to peddle his self-pitying tripe.”

Quote of the Day

The Institute of Directors on AstraZeneca:

“It is misleading to present AstraZeneca as some kind of UK national champion. The company is a truly multinational enterprise that was created through the earlier mergers of UK, Swedish and American companies. The majority of its employees are based outside Europe and its shareholders are overwhelming foreign institutional investors. It is run by a Frenchman and chaired by a Swede. It is a multinational company active in a global economy.”

Quote of the Day

SAS hero Andy McNab on Labour MP Madeleine Moon’s call to end cheap beer for our boys:

“It can’t be one rule for them and one rule for the soldiers.

Are you telling me you don’t have politicians drinking to excess in subsidised bars in the House of Commons?

The difference is in the Armed Forces men and women need somewhere to bond and socialise to build the relationships that their lives depend on.

And when they go too far, they are punished severely – more severely than some MPs do for their drunken behaviour.

The Armed Forces are tribal and socialising in your own Mess is crucial to cohesion.

These MPs would be better off looking at their own drinking culture before looking at others.”

Quote of the Day

The NSPCC:

“Max Clifford has rightly been unmasked as a ruthless and manipulative sex offender who preyed for decades on children and young women. 

Clifford was a rich and influential man who dined with the stars but the way he manipulated and groomed his victims is typical of many sex offenders. He exploited their vulnerabilities, using lies and coercion to get what he wanted.

Intimidated by his power and wealth, many of his victims did not initially speak out. But the courage they have shown in telling police what had happened to them and giving evidence means they have finally got justice.”

Quote of the Day

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”

Quote of the Day

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Quote of the Day

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.”

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!
