"My mates are all in the shadow Cabinet, waiting to get those [ministerial] boxes, being terribly excited. I went to university with them, they haven’t run a piss-up in a brewery... They’re going to get a department of state, in one case running the finances of the nation"
Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh, Conservative Leader of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and head of the Conservative Councils Innovation Unit at a debate on the 26 November. Hat tip to Jim Knight.
'Nuff said, Stephen. We all know that Gideon is particularly economically incompetent, for all his simulated frothing at the mouth over the financial woes of the country. Good to know that his colleagues have the same view. It is usually good form to wait a little while before you start dissing your mates, though.
