Quote of the Night

BBC election guru John Curtice:

‘The truth is that they [Labour] should be on tenterhooks as to whether they will win the seat. That swing that they would need, it is less than the Labour Party achieved in Norwich, less than the Conservatives achieved in Norwich in the last Parliament, less than Labour achieved in Dudley West, Wirrel South just before they won the 1997 election. When oppositions look as though they are on course for government, the kind of swing that is required for Labour to win has been relatively common. To that extent, we have to ask ourselves, why is it we are not asking the question, could Labour win this? It is all of a piece, as a result of the recent elections, Labour do not have the enthusiasm and depth of support in the electorate that make them look like an alternative government.’

Quote of the Day

Nigel Farage rubs it in:

“Thanks again for those TV debates, Nick and do keep your chin up in tough times, I would hate to see you go”

Quote of the Day

Popbitch’s Westminster c*ckwatch may have found another reason why Clegg always looks so unhappy:

“Nick Clegg, sleek and, dare one say, polished looking, although for some reason peering down at it seemed to make him sad.”

Quote of the Day

The New York Times on ex-Obama aides turned Tory and Labour gurus Jim Messina and David Axelrod:

“[Messina speaking about Axelrod] “No, he is my brother, and I love him.” He added that he had spoken with Mr. Axelrod on the phone just that morning about Senate races and Mr. Messina’s wedding, which he said he hoped Mr. Axelrod would attend. “He will be as much my friend after this as he is today.”

Mr. Axelrod declined to comment.”

Quote of the Day

Shamed race row MP Diane “Divide and Rule” Abbott on Nigel Farage:

“his remarks were racist”

Quote of the Day

LabourList’s Mark Ferguson on Miliband’s woes:

“Last night as I struggled to sleep, I wondered if there could be a worse time for the Tories to take a poll lead. Ten days before a major national election – Labour’s last national test before the general election – is awful timing.

… There is another scenario – where Labour comes second, or perhaps – unthinkably – third in the European elections, and underperforms in the local elections. If potential Labour voters are unmoved by our campaign, our messages and our leadership that could happen – and if it does, Miliband would face the toughest test of an already tough and tested leadership.”

Quote of the Day

Lord Hanningfield explains to the Standards Commissioner why he needed to claim his clock-in cash to pay his staffing bill:

“Bruce is employed by me to care for Theodore (my Bernese mountain dog) and my chickens whilst I am in London. He also helps me to perform various administrative tasks (i.e. scanning, typing etc.) when working from home.”

Quote of the Day

David Axelrod on trade unions:

“I don’t think huge funders, Right or Left, who singlehandedly eclipse the spending of parties & candidates are healthy for democracy.”
