Goodley, Get Your Own Jokes

Does this snippet from the Guardian Diary today look familar?

“Why don’t they just admit defeat and call themselves New Conservatives?” Or, even better, plump for Neocons, which seems to have worked quite well elsewhere.

Another case of here today, Guardian diary tomorrow?

Yesterday Guido wrote;

“the Tories no longer want to be called Tories, but Conservatives. Why not go the whole hog and call yourselves New Conservatives? Or Neo-Cons? Has a familiar ring and it seems to work well in Washington.”

Scroll down to yesterday’s post to see the original source of the line. Goodley, you owe me a decent bottle of Margaux.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
