Quote Of The Day

"Publish and be damned!"

Attributed to the Duke of Wellington when Harriet Wilson threatened to publish her autobiography and the letters he wrote to her.

More backbone than brylcreme in him, Dave. And all the other vain politicos wanting publicity are just as bad as you. Look, you are Her Majesty's Prime Minister and they are ginger scribblers and bullies who buy passports of convenience.

What I want is a press that scares government and big business and whose idea of in-depth investigative reporting isn't reading to the end of the press notice. If I want to learn about the doings of instantslebs the Beeb is good enough for that. An Entertainment Correspondent, FFS?
