Shamed race row MP Diane “Divide and Rule” Abbott on Nigel Farage:

“his remarks were racist”

Quote of the Day

LabourList’s Mark Ferguson on Miliband’s woes:

“Last night as I struggled to sleep, I wondered if there could be a worse time for the Tories to take a poll lead. Ten days before a major national election – Labour’s last national test before the general election – is awful timing.

… There is another scenario – where Labour comes second, or perhaps – unthinkably – third in the European elections, and underperforms in the local elections. If potential Labour voters are unmoved by our campaign, our messages and our leadership that could happen – and if it does, Miliband would face the toughest test of an already tough and tested leadership.”

Quote of the Day

Lord Hanningfield explains to the Standards Commissioner why he needed to claim his clock-in cash to pay his staffing bill:

“Bruce is employed by me to care for Theodore (my Bernese mountain dog) and my chickens whilst I am in London. He also helps me to perform various administrative tasks (i.e. scanning, typing etc.) when working from home.”

Quote of the Day

David Axelrod on trade unions:

“I don’t think huge funders, Right or Left, who singlehandedly eclipse the spending of parties & candidates are healthy for democracy.”

Quote of the Day

The Sun on Chris Huhne:

“Huhne dug his own Grand Canyon . . . and still he keeps shovelling.

The crooked Lib Dem got his wife to take his speeding points, then cost taxpayers a fortune denying it right up until the last-minute confession for which he was jailed.

He now bleats that he could have dodged justice if only his wife’s lying friend Judge Constance Briscoe — a witness in his case — had been exposed earlier by her own profession.

The deluded fool believes this was an internal cover-up akin to the Stafford Hospital scandal. Yes, the scandal where 1,200 people died.

Huhne broke the law and was rightly punished. He needs to move on and count his few blessings.

Such as having newspaper pals still prepared to peddle his self-pitying tripe.”

Quote of the Day

The Institute of Directors on AstraZeneca:

“It is misleading to present AstraZeneca as some kind of UK national champion. The company is a truly multinational enterprise that was created through the earlier mergers of UK, Swedish and American companies. The majority of its employees are based outside Europe and its shareholders are overwhelming foreign institutional investors. It is run by a Frenchman and chaired by a Swede. It is a multinational company active in a global economy.”

Quote of the Day

Patrick Mercer, quoted in the Standards Committee report that finished him:

“the thing which about we are all frightened is Guido Fawkes”

Quote of the Day

SAS hero Andy McNab on Labour MP Madeleine Moon’s call to end cheap beer for our boys:

“It can’t be one rule for them and one rule for the soldiers.

Are you telling me you don’t have politicians drinking to excess in subsidised bars in the House of Commons?

The difference is in the Armed Forces men and women need somewhere to bond and socialise to build the relationships that their lives depend on.

And when they go too far, they are punished severely – more severely than some MPs do for their drunken behaviour.

The Armed Forces are tribal and socialising in your own Mess is crucial to cohesion.

These MPs would be better off looking at their own drinking culture before looking at others.”

Quote of the Day

Ed Balls at Treasury questions:

“If this chancellor wants a discussion about whiplash, Mr Speaker, we can do that any day of the week. Mister, Mrs or Mistress – but let’s not go back to the biographies of the past.”[…] Read the rest

The NSPCC:

“Max Clifford has rightly been unmasked as a ruthless and manipulative sex offender who preyed for decades on children and young women. 

Clifford was a rich and influential man who dined with the stars but the way he manipulated and groomed his victims is typical of many sex offenders.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress.[…] Read the rest

Quote of the Day

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’.[…] Read the rest

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Too little, too late from Maria Miller:

“The last 16 months have been difficult. As you know, I have been working hard for Basingstoke and also doing my job as a Cabinet minister.

During this time, I have been subject to an intense Parliamentary inquiry looking at extensive personal details of my family life, as a result of allegations made by a Labour MP.
