The Romulan Ambassador to the Court of St James, John Redwood, has a post on his blog which is well worth a read. His observation on the size of the UK’s debt is particularly chilling, and has brought home to me the sheer scale of the economic horror that Labour has unleashed on the UK.

“We will be paying these bills for years. They plan to borrow more in two years than all previous governments combined have borrowed in 1000 years. That is going to be painful to repay.”


Hello, or more accurately Goodbye, Dolly!

One of my favourite blogs is The Lakelander’s View, the satirical thoughts (and marvellous photoshopped pictures) of a self proclaimed Village Idiot from the Lake District. His post today is particularly super!


A question for the Met

January 25, 2009

An interesting question from Louise Bagshawe on Conservative Home

“A (Bob) Quick question for a Sunday morning… Damian Green, in the course of doing his duty as an Opposition spokesman, was arrested, his house raided, his love letters read, held for multiple hours, his wife and daughters were in tears and lastly he was bugged without his knowledge.

This was on suspicion of, and I forget the exact term, “conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office”.

In comparison, Labour peers are on tape offering to amend legislation for cash. The Metropolitan Police’s response to that will be very interesting, won’t it?”

I strongly suspect I know the answer… the Met will do nothing, on the instructions of their masters in Downing Street – certainly no offices will be raided, no researchers intimidated (as per Daniel Kawczynski), no teenage daughters terrorised, no peers arrested and held for 9 hours. Anyone want to bet that I am wrong?
