Ed Balls Campaign Diary*

David Miliband has now re-launched his leadership campaign “formally”, what imaginary formality is that?  The skinny wonker has delusions of grandeur derived from still having bodyguards.  By my count that makes three “Miliband for leader” launches in the last week.  No sign of Burnham yet, let him launch first and see if he says anything worth nicking.

NEC is deciding the timetable for the Shad Cab and leadership elections this week.  Charlie is promising to twist a few PLP arms for me.  Watson’s mobile seems to go to voice-mail automatically, that shifty fat f*****r is playing a risky game, he was supposed to fix the NEC.  Maybe I’m being paranoid.

Thank f**k the Shad Cab elections will be scheduled for after the leadership elections, I’d be f****d if I bombed in  the Shad Cab before the leadership vote despite smiling like Gordon on Prozac and going on a tour of all the Unite-backed newbie candidates during the election campaign.  Canvassing in the wasteland that is my beloved constituency was depressing, fear PLP might be like some of those council estates, although hopefully no-one in the PLP will set their dog on me.  Wonder if I can claim for that suit on expenses?

Must re-affirm more, like the therapist said. I will be the leader. I WILL BE LEADER!

    And we watched an era of Labour politics come to a close, as Gordon and Sarah Brown walked with dignity down Downing Street for the last time with their two young sons. John and Fraser will grow up proud of what their Dad achieved.

    Victory is mine.

    Dumbells Miliblinks have split their vote and are boring everybody in sight.

    They are even sharing their campaign funds with me. David Abrahams is giving £100,000.00 to their campaign , which when subject to Marx Brothers true socialist redistribution principles gives Dave .0 Ed the other .0 and 100,000 smackers for me.

    God, this so easy.

    I won’t have to write any crappy Mine Camp Manifesto for the sodden proles

    to buy at £50 a pop. On the other hand, why throw away a good earner.

    So, if you have a month free, Guido, you can pen my Mine Camp Whatever

    and I will give you a free copy for yourself.

    No sign of Mad Hattie Harperson throwing her knickers into ring.

    Maybe at the next full moon.

    gildedtumbril says:

    It must be an enormously thick creature to, having been cursed with the surname ‘Balls’ resist the sensible action to adopt a more acceptable and less risible name, like Shithead. I feel that would be a winner with Unite voters who would vote for any useless bastard spouting total ballocks as long as it carries the labour label.
    Unsurprisingly the new arseholes in charge of Britain turn out to be arsewipes.
    How shocking.

    I reckon Balls still dresses up as a Nazi. It’s an addiction like women’s clothes. Yvette probably puts on a dirndl skirt and pirhouettes around singing ‘High on a Hill Stood a Lonely Goat’, as everything spirals into an erotic frenzy involving German shepherds and rent boys in lederhosen.

    Edward Michael "Ed" Balls says:

    I have not rushed to a decision on whether to stand in this contest. Partly because I felt it my duty to talk to my party first. Partly because, like many MPs and party members, I wanted to let the events of the last few weeks sink in and did not think we should be rushed.

    I’m going to spend the next five years reliving and hugely enjoying that moment when Snotgobbler McFuck, the most hated man on the planet, left Downing Street for the last time.

    Dribbler says:

    It’s a sad state if the only individuals that Labour can find to raise their heads above the pavement in this leadership event are the two Millipedes and a load of BOLLOCKS!! There is so little talent on the Opposition benches now, makes you wonder how they managed without Presser and why the Cameron machine couldn’t effectively crush them when the Tory boys almost won the election. Maybe they had too many mixed messages for the electorate to understand?

    From the Balls website:

    “That is why I say we must listen before we pronounce; talk the language of the people not politicians; root what we do not in tactical positioning but in our values”

    Fuck me backwards that is some Damascene conversion.

    “That is why I say we must listen before we pronounce” Balls? Listening?

    “…talk the language of the people not politicians…” beleive me blinky you won’t fucking like what you going to have to talk about. It’d get you chucked out of Toynbee’s garden party that’s for fucking sure.

    “…root what we do not in tactical positioning but in our values.” And what values are those then? Mugabe politics as you vainly cling on to power trying to usurp a democracy? Snout-piggery in the trough? Pissing my monye up against the wall with universal benefit and corrupt contracts with your lover boy PFI boys?

    Deranged bastard.

    You know what? I fucking love having him back with a 1000 majority. He’s completely shafted.

    Blinky has this in his favour, that he is a good big target for a custard pie. The Milibands are too tiny and Burnham is too pretty – it would be like soiling the Rokeby Venus. Prescott would just have eaten the pie and given you a knuckle sandwich in return. It would just slide off Blair without leaving a mark. No, the portly pongwhiff is the mark for me.

Same with the public finances…the Three “guilty” men are Brown;Darling and Byrne and if it’s proven that they’ve not acted responsibly and have been playing politics with no cares for the nation’s finances then charges need to be brought..ex-Ministers and even ex-Prime Ministers would do well to realise that they can be held accountable for their actions in government if found to be acting negligently…there is no immunity from prosecution

    She flatly refused. I was so enraged I grabbed her by the hair, hurled her down the stairs, ripped her knickers off and had my own way with her.

    As I was pulling up my pants I stood over her broken body and said “Don’t you dare ever tell anybody about this. If anybody asks, you fell and twisted your ankle, hence the reason you’re limping.”

    As she made her way to her feet she replied “Okay I promise I won’t, hurry up it’s our stop.”

    2. Deport any dissident Scotch / Taffs to Ulster
    3. Withdraw British forces from Northern Ireland
    4. Stop postal votes

You just gasp at the cheek of the marxists, why doesn’t David Cleggeran do the right thing and CALL IN THE IMF to independently audit the books?

In the run-up to the election, I had conversations with Labour supporters who genuinely believe Labour is the only party that wants to help the poor and the disadvantaged, and is the only party that will protect people’s freedoms! Where have they been the last 13 years?! This is the same Labour party that’s shat on the poor and on pensioners, took part in an illegal Neo-Con war, and made this the most surveilled First World country in peacetime history and introduced 3,500 new offences and wanted to bring in ID cards! They just can’t compute that it’s the Tories who have the progressive policies of scrapping the ID card scheme and scrapping plans to extend the time you can detain suspects without charge, and are going to drop the damaging increase in NI contributions. It’s as though they’re still so obsessed with harking back to Thatcher that they want to believe Tories are eternally evil and Labour are eternally good. Hilarious. Absolutely hilarious.

    Capital gains tax used to be fair and encouraged long term investment and discouraged the quick buck. Until Gordon changed all this and encouraged speculation.

    Osborne should be aware that many sensible investors need to be rewarded for long time commitment. As it stands a tax of 40% is draconian and a reason for a fire sale of assets.

    Labour have a problem and its structural – basically they attract then promote then elect men and wimmin who have never done a proper job and have never grown a business or created wealth. When fishing around for a new effective leader, therefore, they are fishing in a very shallow pond.

    Then you have to take into account the Marxists and commies who hide within the party trying to gain control to bring or hurry along their Marxist ‘Utopia’.

    What to do? Well I don’t particularly like the Bloke but if Alan Sugar was the leader of the Labour Party at least you might have a business orientated “CEO’ as a potential PM.

These require certain qualities I do not possess. “The role of leader is one of the greatest honours imaginable – but it is not a bauble to aspire for. It is a duty to fulfil. I do not feel that I am in a position to deliver on the hopes and expectations that will be placed in the next leader.””

    Labour minister Liam Byrne left note on desk: ‘There’s no money left’
    Liam Byrne, the former Chief Secretary to the Treasury, last week wrote a letter for his successor – the Liberal Democrat David Laws – stating: “I’m afraid to tell you there’s no money left.”
    Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Mr Laws said: “When I arrived at my desk on the very first day as Chief Secretary, I found a letter from the previous chief secretary to give me some advice, I assumed, on how I conduct myself over the months ahead.
    “Unfortunately, when I opened it, it was a one-sentence letter which simply said ’Dear Chief Secretary, I’m afraid to tell you there’s no money left’, which was honest but slightly less helpful advice than I had been expecting.”
    The letter – which Mr Byrne claims was meant to be humorous – represents a sign of the stark challenges facing the new Coalition Government to reduce Britain’s record £163 billion budget deficit.
    Mr Byrne insisted that his parting message was meant as a private joke.
    “My letter was a joke, from one Chief Secretary to another,” he said today. “I do hope David Laws’ sense of humour wasn’t another casualty of the coalition deal.”
    The ill-judged private comment marks the second time in a month that the Labour MP for Birmingham Hodge Hill has made a gaffe. During the election campaign, Mr Byrne was caught swapping notes with Yvette Copper, the former Secretary of State for Work & Pensions, complaining that an event which they were attending was “second tier”.

    Andrew Murphy wrote:
    “people vote Labour because they believe in common humanity”

    Nonsense. People vote Labour because they believe that their view of the world is superior and that their plans and programs should be financed at the point of a gun via the taxation of productive citizens.

    we have the first voting intentions since the General election. ComRes in the Independent on Sunday/Sunday Mirror have voting intentions of CON 38%, LAB 34%, LDEM 21%. From the general election the Liberal Democrats are down and Labour up, presumably a direct defection of Liberal Democrat voters who are more inclined to Labour and opposed to the party joing the Conservatives in coalition.

    41% of respondents thought that the Liberal Democrats had sold out their principles, with 47% disagreeing. This included 34% of Liberal Democrat votes. 35% of respondents agreed with the statement that Nick Clegg should have opted for a coalition with Labour rather than one with the Conservatives, that includes 33% of Liberal Democrats (presumably 33% of remaining Liberal Democrats, as opposed to 33% of those who voted Lib Dem in 2010).

    Angry and Despondent says:

    Let’s face it, Supporters of Labour are fanatical and refuse to condemn any wrongdoing by their side. It’s a case of “They may be thieves, liars and cheats, but they’re LABOUR thieves, liars and cheats.”

    Uncritical Labour supporters are as corrupt as the party itself. All you hear from them about the expenses fiddling are about duck houses and moats. They’ll admit nothing about the likes of Darling flipping his second home four times so he could evade paying Capital Gains Tax on the profits when he sold them. They also say that M.P.s shouldn’t have second jobs, inferring it’s just the evil Tories who do that. The Likes of Adam Ingram, Nick Raynsford, Richard Caborn, Alan Milburn, David Blunkett, Hillary Armstrong, Stephen Ladyman etc getting themselves some nice little earners with companies they dealt with as ministers are just Labour good ol’ boys and girls bettering themselves.

    You ought to know by now that Labour voters would have elected Adolph Hitler, Robert Mugabe, Pol Pot and Saddam Hussein if they had stood wearing a red rosette in this country. Labour supporters are SO tribal they would vote for the party even if they knew their manifesto stated their intention was to slaughter every firstborn child in the land. That’s how stupid and unthinking they are, you’ll never change them.

    Never forget, it’s in Labour’s interest to keep the population stupid, resentful and envious. Why do you think Labour controlled areas of the country are centres of deprivation, even in the areas where they’ve been in power since time immemorial? They don’t want anyone to better themselves. That’s why they devised Comprehensive Education – let the schools turn out unthinking thickoes who’ll be unemployable and the ones who can read they’ll brainwash with Marxist propaganda. Simples!

    Labour is a cancer on society says:

    Bang on. They are a bunch of commies. They have a client state that is 28% bought with taxpayers money who would even vote for Pressclot for leader.

    They are the enemy of society. The only way to deal with them is:
    1. ignore them
    2. reform the postal voting system to eliminate fraud
    3. redraw the constituency boundaries to ensure fewer of them elected
    4. bring their leaders (and past leaders) to trail for treason, false accounting, fraud, misconduct in public office etc
    5. let the public know the truth about them i.e. not assist the cover up as in Glasgow
    6. scrap the tv license and stifle their propaganda channels. Purge them from the BBC and sell it off.
    7. Stop the ‘jobs for trots’ gravy train in the public services.
    8. choke off their union funding by limiting donation size and an opt out assumption for political levy
    9. reform union laws so that they can be sued for damages by third parties caught up in a strike e.g. suppliers

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
