Quote of the Day

Peak Roger Lord:

“Douglas Carswell is Nigel’s bitch; he will perpetually be picking up the political equivalent of prison soap”

Quote of the Day

Speaking to Tory MPs last night, the PM mocked Bercow’s letter recommending Carol Mills for the Clerk job:

“What does he want me to do with this letter? Shall I just stuff it down the side of the sofa? Put it in the bin? Or shall we just forget we never received it?”

Quote of the Day

Cameron outwits old soak Karl Turner at PMQs:

“I’m sure I’ll get all sorts of pleasant surprises on my birthday, so please don’t spoil it by telling me what they are.”

Quote of the Day

Tim Harford in the FT:

“As human freedoms go, the freedom to take your custom elsewhere is not a grand or noble one – but neither is it one that we should abandon without a fight.”

Quote of the Day

Hugo Rifkind in the Times:

“Something is different now. Antisemitism has always spiked when Israel deploys the Israeli Defence Force, but this time the ire is not confined to Israelis. Instead, far more than before, protesters are using, and twisting, the word “Zionists”. Many, even most, probably don’t mean any harm by it. Perhaps they see it as a narrowing term, a way to specifically not attack all Jews or even all Israelis, but merely those who wish to ethnically cleanse Palestine of Palestinians and put Jews there instead. The trouble is, “Zionism” doesn’t mean that. It’s a broad term and it refers to the simple fact of there being a Jewish homeland at all. Believe in a two-state solution? You’re a Zionist. Strive for a bi-national state? Also a Zionist. The United Nations is Zionist. Technically, even the Palestinian Authority is Zionist; that’s what the damn word means.”

Quote of the Day

Mick Twister on Warsi:

Conservative Baroness Warsi

Is getting increasingly arsy

For now she’s resigned,

The Tories, we find,

Are white, male and too upper-classy.

Quote of the Day

Boris on Jo Johnson’s closeness to No.10:

“A little piece of me dies but otherwise I rejoice in his success.”

Quote of the Day

Knifed former civil service chief Bob Kerslake on his recent troubles:

Quote of the Day

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”

Quote of the Day

Ex-Gove SpAd Dominic Cummings:

“It took David Cameron 4 years to surrender and in that time we got away with subverting every Whitehall and No.10 process.”

Quote of the Day

Michael Gove reflects:

“It’s naturally a wrench to be moved from a job I love… Demotion, emotion, locomotion, whatever I’m engaged in today, I’m pushing forward the government’s agenda.”

Quote of the Day

Steve Coogan has a short memory:

“I find people who are in the public eye for something else who suddenly start voicing opinions about everything else quite irritating.”

Quote of the Day

Margaret Hodge offers what could be the beginnings of a confession at today’s Tax Transparency Debate in the House of Commons:

“I don’t understand tax. Hiding behind my lack of understanding is not good enough.”

Quote of the Day

Speaking on BBC Hereford and Worcester, Chuka Umunna has some trouble working out where he is:

“I doubt most people on the streets in Hereford and Wichita know what a local enterprise partnership is about”

Quote of the Day

Miliband guru Lord Glasman:

“We have an England football team of a government, and the reserves are no better. Neither our coaches nor our political leaders seem to understand the relationship between competitiveness and co-operation, team building and winning. We have been managed not led. There seems to be no alternative to conformist mediocrity…

Labour has not told a story about how the centralisation of power, in the market and the state, is the primary problem, and giving incentives to virtue rather than vice is the fundamental solution. And so the most original leftwing thought for some years on social welfare reform vanished almost without trace, reduced to a nasty Labour press release on how the party plans to force young people into training.”

Quote of the Day

“Every crook and ne’er do well seems to end up here,” says David Coburn, newly elected UKIP MEP, speaking in Brussels.

Quote of the Day

Gordon Brown is at the Guardian’s offices this morning, where he was asked if he had a “sneaking admiration” for Alex Salmond. The Prime Mentalist replied:

“He’s won an election, which is more than I did”

Quote of the Day

Dom Cummings blogs on the PM calling him a “career psychopath”:

“No. 10′s first reaction was to decide not to react to my interview, then one of his friends pleaded with me to ‘leave him alone because Miliband would be even worse’ and another threatened me (incompetently). The fact that Cameron then blurts out an insult reviving the story four days later is an example of my point about the lack of focus in No. 10. If they can’t decide a consistent line on me, what chance on ISIS?!

For Cameron, someone who focuses on priorities and gets stuff done every day according to a long-term plan stretching over years, while ignoring orders from Heywood, doubtless looks like a psycho! I’m not sure which of us would come out ahead on the Hare test, but I know who is better at getting stuff done and it ain’t the guy in No. 10 watching Netflix with a glass of red in his paw…”

Quote of the Day

Former Gove SpAd Dom Cummings, on David Cameron:

“As Bismarck said about Napoleon III, Cameron is a sphinx without a riddle. Everyone is trying to find the secret of David Cameron but he is exactly what he appears to be. There’s no mystery to him. He had a picture of Macmillan on his wall — that’s all you need to know.”

On Dave’s chief of staff Ed Llewellyn:

“a classic third-rate suck-up-kick-down sycophant presiding over a shambolic court”

On the No.10 comms chief Craig Oliver:

“He’s just clueless.”

Quote of the Day

Tom Watson on the Fabians’ report showing Labour is losing support to UKIP:

“This must be listened to at the top of the party. I think there is an added problem of the density of former special advisers who speak for Labour in a particular tone that is off-putting.[…] Read the rest
