Quote of the Day

Chris Deerin goes all Carswellian…

“The political classes display blatant contempt for the intelligence of the electorate. They see themselves as wizards, making us ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ with their clever illusions, their levitations and rabbits and hats. They don’t realise the audience can see the colourful handkerchief hanging from their sleeve, the trapdoor in the stage floor, that the lovely assistant’s legs remain attached to the rest of her body. Politics needs to be saved from the politicians. We live in an age of peer-to-peer communication, in which a lie or a bluff can be exposed as such on the internet within minutes. Deference is gone, institutions are tottering, people have choice and empowerment in most areas of their lives. No one believes in magic or magicians any more.”

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
