A quick “conversation” with the barrowboy Alan Sugar on Twitter, to be read from the bottom up:

Shadow Cabinet Election

The Labour Party were imposing quotas in all sorts of places based no on a person’s ability to do a job but on whether of not they had a uterus. Rant at The Independent:

Sirs,

As a member of the Labour Party, I was disappointed to see that it has not yet grown beyond the childish need to be seen to “be fair” at any cost. I disapprove of discrimination both negative and positive, and the idea of having a gender-based “quota” limitation on voting is political correctness gone mad bordering on apartheid. Selection should be competence-based only not dependent upon reproductive equipment. A functioning uterus is no basis for government responsibility.

Spectator Support?

The Independent’s columnist John Rentoul wrote quoting a speech by David Cameron, correcting a mistake Cameron made. This note winged its way to The Independent:

Sirs,

John Rentoul is most gentlemanly when he transcribes David Cameron’s speech as “society is not a spectator sport” when everyone listening heard “society is not a spectator support”. Apparently the Big Society is all about selling jockstraps to sedentary folk. At last we have a definition that everyone understands.
