Quote Of The Day.

Peter Hitchens on standing ovations (David Cameron's in particular):
Standing ovations are almost always demonstrations of insincerity. No sane human being really thinks that a politician’s speech is so good they want to stand and simper, batting their palms together for several minutes, at the end.

I've never seen any speech by a politician, even Maggie, that deserved that.
