Great moments in modern history

The four minute mile
Breaking the sound barrier
Man's first steps on the Moon
The first league, eoropean cup and FA cup treble

Everyone remembers these magical milestones in man's progress. Well now there is another name to be added to the pantheon alongside luminaries like Bannister, Yeager, Armstrong and Man United. Tony Baldry MP(Con, Banbury) today acheived the unthinkable, nay....the impossible. For the first time at PMQ's Gordon Brown actually answered a question from an opposition MP. And in an even more astonishing act, he got him to admit he was wrong.

Mr Baldry, take a bow son...take a bow.

The moral of today's story is to buy a serious amount of shares in Nokia. Boy, I would hate to be a No.10 Spad right now!

I'm Spartacus!

If you're not already aware read this over at Tory Politico. Some jokers in America are trying to force the site to change it's name, fortunately ToryPolitico is not going down without a fight. And as a gesture of solidarity I've changed the name of this blog, maybe temporarily...maybe permanently. I think it'd be nice if more bloggers did the same and really give the septic lawyers a conniption fit.

A little Saturday silliness

No pearls of wisdom from me this post, except to recommend that you read this blogpost from Toby Young, who is one of only two people I can be bothered to read in the Telegraph these days alongside Benedict Brogan (Hannan's a little too much of a zealot for my tastes these days, I mean, I like tea as much as anyone...I'm fuelled by the stuff...but I'm not going to throw a party about it!). Young's post is the tale of a young man cruelly spurned and literally made me laugh so much I accidentally spat a half-masticated mouthful of cornflakes over my laptop. The question is...who were the two ministers?

Let's just kill the rich!

Martin Luther King once famously said 'I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character '.

Labour cares less about the contents of their character and more about the contents of their current account. Do they really want to dig up party political donors? It's a very large can of worms where Labour is concerned.

And I don't see why they haven't let this story go, Ashcroft hasn't actually broken any law, has he? The Bastard! I do expect something to pop up in the budget regarding non-doms now which is ironic since the Tories are actually fully supportive of that.

Now, who's going to dig into the quagmire that is the Labour party's funding?

Beeb bias....not even hiding it any more

Just saw 'Toenails' Robinson on the news...and 'on-message'. A report covered with innacuracies and glossing over the fact that Ashcroft's donations currently account for less than 2% of conservative funding or the labour non-doms who barely got a namecheck even though they (unlike Ashcroft) have directly benefitted after giving their party a donation. And no mentuion of the fact that Brown declined Cameron's offer to rush through a law forcing any sitting member of either chamber in parliament to pay full UK tax on their earnings...but then again, Brown's donors wouldn't like that. Ashcroft to his credit backs Cameron's plan and has said he'll abide by it.

And don't get me started on that hypocritical prick Alan Johnson. Happy to take the union shilling but won't even allow union members a political opt-out. (I very much doubt if even 50% of union members are labour supporters these days). Why should their money go towards a party they don't even support?


Add Jack Straw to the list. The stench of hypocrisy is overwhelming!


Michael Gove turning the tables on Newsnight...just beautiful! Kisty Wark squirming!
