Quote of the Day

Marina Hyde nails it

“To watch prime minister’s questions is to behold the interactions of creatures so bizarre and unknowable to normal people that the BBC really ought to get David Attenborough to provide the voiceover. To hear them defend each other’s property deals even as they shower one-penny-off-a-pint vouchers on the bingo-winged masses is to fall victim to some sort of cosmic joke in which we are the punchline. Even as politicians preach about the dangers of later pub opening hours for the feckless electorate, many of their number get notoriously drunk and handsy in bars that – unbelievably, no matter how many times I type it – are heavily subsidised by the taxpayer. Occasionally the police are called to these watering holes. But then if you give not-very-hardworking people more than a whole quid off the things they enjoy, you can hardly act surprised when they abuse it. Perhaps we voters might feel better about ourselves if we decided that we were not enabling a bunch of shysters and sad cases to get lecherous and pissed at our expense…”
