“How the EU throws our money away
When I woke up this morning, my phone was clogged with texts, my email inbox with messages. Overnight, the YouTube clip of my remarks had attracted over 36,000 hits. By today, it was the most watched video in Britain.” ~ Daniel Hannan
I randomly bought this album this morning by Lily Allen. It totally rocks. Its a bit of a trip and its good stuff. Makes me think that that randomness is good.
