Speech By T-Shirts...

The kindest comments, apparently, of Cameron's speech today concluded that it was underwhelming:
“He’s got a very bad throat,” one Cabinet minister said to me, to explain why David Cameron had given such an underwhelming speech at the party conference. It started badly, with poor overnight briefing, a hurried re-write and ended with weak delivery to a three-quarters full conference hall.
And this was one of the lines in his speech:
"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog."
Oh dear oh dear, a speech scripted by T-shirts.


  1. Nah, that phrase has been around for decades and decades. Not original, but certainly not from the t-shirt above.

    Like the blog BTW.

  2. @Centaur thanks for you kind comment, I know it's been around for ages, I believe it was Mark Twain who first said it.

    It's just a bit sad that a Prime Minister takes his sound bites from a phrase most commonly used on T-shirts.

    As you rightly point out, it's not original.
