Quote of the Day

Polly Toynbee shows her true partisan colours in jaw-dropping style in today's Guardian column:

"Even if unemployment reaches 3 million, that still leaves 90% in secure jobs..." - Polly Toynbee

Saw that. Did a quick piece on it.

I thought CIF contributor 'Alphamail' on page one of the comments was brilliant. I'll be paying a nod his way on my site in a bit.

Toynbee is an unmitigated disgrace to humanity.

Quite apart from the brazen idiocy and hypocrisy, a path well trod, my so-called mind is drawn to the word "secure". What a curious and unnecessary addition to an already bad point.

@TFB: I was baffled by the inclusion of "secure". Surely one of the points about rising unemployment is that many jobs are so much less secure.

Well spotted. You could add that 25% of people are public sector employees.
