Quote Of The Day

From Tim Worstall, a comment from the Guardian:
The Greek protest vote goes to neo-nazis, the Italian protest vote to an anarchist comedian, the British protest vote goes to an ex-stockbroker called Nigel.
What an extraordinarily sensible country we really are.

  1. A candidate for quote of the year IMHO.

    1. :-) If nothing else it made me laugh...

  2. I believe that the Guardian is wrong, yet again, Mr Farage was not a stockbroker but he did work in London.

    1. Farage had a job in London, I'm not sure he "worked"... :-)

  3. He was a metals trader ... i.e., a casino gambler, and even then he failed to make any money, his company now on the verge of liquidation, with hundreds of thousands of debt.

    So, while Germany, for instance, goes for an economics professor (as in AFD), we go for a failed city spiv - with not the first idea of how to construct an EU exit plan.

    Indeed, what a "sensible" country we are.

    1. Aye I don't dispute Farage's less than honorable past...I was just initially amused by the sentiments of the comment, and posted it as per my blog's Raison d'être of "occasionally chucking some whimsical nonsense in as well".

      As your blog has demonstrated you're amused by Tim Worstall at times as well

  4. I think I found the contrast of Worstall's words, and the accidental juxtaposition of the WWF advert quite amusing. Worstall crawling up the backside of Farage is perhaps less so!

    1. I appreciate that regarding Tim Worstall and backsides... I wasn't endorsing it, I just found the comment amusing.
