"You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"Now that was a classy "fuck off".
No person shall, in the case of an election to which this section applies, publish before the poll is closed: (a) any statement relating to the way in which voters have voted at the election where that statement is (or might reasonably be taken to be) based on information given by voters after they have voted...By revealing how a sample of 300 voters have cost their ballot paper in her constituency, she has clearly broken that regulation. The punishment is a fine of up to £5,000 or a maximum of six months in prison. Send her down.
"That was a disaster. Should never have put me with that woman ... whose idea was that?"Politicians should not be afraid of meeting the voters, even if they don't like them. If Brown doesn't think that he can face people who disagree with them and argue his case strongly, even if he cannot convince them, then what on earth is he doing in politics? I also don't like Brown looking for someone to blame.
"I trust the BBC will give equal air-time to 'private' recordings of the other leadership candidates. Otherwise, I call bias."Richard Haselgrove could be joking, of course, although there are other commenters who have spotted a conspiracy that this off-camera remark was actually picked up by a Sky News microphone. Proof that the Cameron-supporting Rupert Murdoch will do anything to rig the election, naturally. Sigh...
"Good evening ladies and gentlemen. This is your captain speaking. We have a small problem. All four engines have stopped. We are all doing our damnedest to get them going again. I trust you are not in too much distress."
"The defendant does not have a stable address."I really hope that he doesn't realise the joke.
