Quote of the day 21st November 2020

"You might very well think that, I couldn't possibly comment"

(Catch phrase written for the late Ian Richardson, as cabinet minister and later PM Francis Urquhart, in the TV adaptation of Michael Dobbs' "House of Cards" novels.)

(This is probably what Matt Hancock should have said when devious BBC journalists who are under the impression that their job is to provide an opposition rather than inform the public asked him a question this morning which he was not allowed to answer but to which it would look bad to say no.)
