Manchester Council Madness

Today’s order of the OTT goes to the leader of Manchester Council for comparing government cuts to an IRA bomb. Writing in the Manchester Evening News sick Sir Richard Leese said:

“Since I was first elected to the council almost 27 years ago, I have seen many difficult times . . . just weeks after becoming council leader in 1996, I had to deal with the aftermath of the IRA bomb. But nothing has been as difficult or as painful as the struggle we have been having over the last two months to produce a legal, balanced budget.”

What does Sir Richard know about surviving after having a limb or two blown off, or coping with a life of blindness or brain-damage? Would he still be so flippant if he’d had a face full of glass?

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
