"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Not That I'm One To Gloat...

...but, I do like this photo:

I'd like to think he's suddenly realised the enormity of the damage he and his Party have done to the country but I doubt it: he's probably praying to be turned into green cheese so he can stay in power supported by Nick 'Euphoria' Clegg.



Clearly, to coin a phrase, if we hadn't had 13yrs of re-jigging electoral boundaries to suit the Labour Party, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in at the moment.  Just saying.
The full debate (about 13mins) can be seen here.

  1. Just loved Tebbit's reaction whilst Oakshott was speaking - head in hand, oh God who is this comedian?

  2. I still figure that the Tories will be the beneficiaries of a late swing in the polls, that will see them go very very close to an overall majority. Not that Cameron deserves it mind, as the only thing in his favour is that he's not Gordon Brown.

  3. The studio backdrop looks like an early 1980s arcade video game. It says nothing. Looking at this with the sound off Tebbit et al could be in an ice cream toppings debate.

    There is no election in progress just a game.

    "Above my paygrade" his head needs shuvved down the U-bend.

  4. Hi Mr W - Tebbit is priceless and you know exactly what you get with him. I was struck by how frail his voice seems these days but his intellect is as sharp as ever.

    I tend to agree, D&C, all this talk of the mess and behind-the-scenes negotiations a hung parliament could bring (even though the media and some politicos try to spin it as 'balanced') could persuade some voters on the day. We'll see what Thursday's leaders' debate on the economy throws up.

    It's an excellent soundbite isn't it, Incoming? It's always used when they want to avoid answering a question and I've lost count of the number of MPs who've used it since the beginning of the year. The U-bend would be blocked in no time.
