Quote of the Day

On Iain Dale's site today, there's a few beauties including this from Paddy Ashdown.

"We have a Prime Minister who ignores international law when he feels like it, disregarding the findings of UN weapons inspectors in Iraq, turning a blind eye to US abuse of human rights in Guantanamo Bay, and failing to condemn the Israeli invasion of Lebanon" - Lord Ashdown, the former Liberal Democrat leader.

Of course, I'm taking issue on his point about Israel. Now let me see, you have a bunch of murderous swines called Hezbollah who unleashed a vicious attack on Israel. What do you expect Israel to do? It's a bit like the Americans not condemning Britain for destroying the Luftwaffe in September 1940.

Moving on to a more frivolous "quote of the day", I loved the one by Michael Portillo about Gordon Brown. "He has the charisma of a coffin lid".

Good analogy, Jeremy. Poor old Gordie, though!

Puts Paddy Pantsdown in the same league as the vile creature Tonge

Re the Broon- it would be funny if it was a hint of truth but it is so true to be a squirmer and probably wasn't said in jest...

the left will always be wrong on Israel; they don't understand or appreciate history.

and it's somewhat ironic that the kibbutz movement was the ultimate socialist movement.
