Miliband’s Millionaires

For all the hustings and the hype, what really makes leadership campaigns successful is the hard cash. And no surprise that favourite David Miliband has raised nearly five times that of his closest financial rival Ed Balls.

  • David Miliband -£185,000
  • Ed Balls – £28,000
  • Ed Miliband – £15,000

Abbot and Burnham haven’t even raised enough to need declaring yet. Ouch.

So where is Miliband’s money coming from? He has declared that there are three Lords pulling his strings. Blair’s old chum Lord Sainsbury gave £20,000, Lord Alli used a proxy company to give £50,000 and Lord Puttnam threw in a cheeky £10,000. The novelist Ken Follett gave Balls the bulk of his money. Cha-ching.

      I’m surprised bollocks has raised any money at all. When his Donate page has been displaying this message right from the start.

      Our online donations function will go live shortly.

      Too true says:

      Fools and their money..

      I can understand it with Lord Sainsbury; isn’t he the arrogant pillock who managed, before being sacked, to get his supermarket chain demoted from the Number One spot down to .. what is it now? Third place or is it fourth?

      As for the others.. unbelievable. Wealthy and older than 30 and yet socialist. Unforgivable.

        Socialism is circular.

        When you are poor you are a socialist
        When you are just getting by you are a Liberal
        When you are well off you are a Tory
        When you have so much money that giving away £300 million wouldn’t hurt you, you are a socialist.

          The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

          “When you have so much money that giving away £300 million wouldn’t hurt you, you are a socialist.”

          Sorry Bill, but when it is YOUR money, you are a philanthropist.

      Her Arrogance, Princess ‘Po-Face’ Podium Polytwaddle, talking down at people from her Ivory Tower, says:

      I am always right.

      I am never wrong.

      I’ll have you know that, even though one campaigns for what one believes are things that they (the poor) want, one must remember that one is inherently, – and at heart – POSH.

      And that means that only the extremely wealthy can afford to be socialist.

      I am rich enough to be a socialist. And so is my dear boy Gorgon. And Millisquit.

      Others do not count.

      Why feign surprise?

      But I must rest a little longer after a leisurely champagne luncheon. Then I must approve the menu for dinner and other necessary chores.

      Oh and write something for my adoring Grouniad readers.

      But that nagging ache is coming back again. It’s the thought of Gorgon! Oh his voice! His deep thrusting response to my questions! His searching analysis of my . . . ! . . Oh . . I‘m going . . . . don’t help me! . . . let me bliss out in status polytwadlicus. . . !

      ah i didn’t finish my post above because i wanted to get the first one in.

      anyway, they bill have arrested two more guys and what I think one scenario is they (2 people arrested) are using in there defense that they had no choice but to provide with help because he’s getting desperate and may harm the general public trying to escape.

      another scenario is the camp fire was just a decoy and he’s now on his way down to london/spain/wherever and totaly thrown the police off his trail.

      I read on another forum the Raul Moat is very well known on the prison circuit and has alot of underworld contacts who’d go out of there way to help him.

      A man - a Police man? says:

      Aye! Det Chief Supt Neil Adamson (who has the IQ of a clothes peg) said, at rate of one word ever 58 second, while swing his head from side to side like an elephant shagging a horse, Moaty is now going to start killing paraplegics with an axe (hooray!)


      • 120
        Jonathan says:

        The officer you mention is not much of an advert for the police force, but then the female Chief Constable of Northumbria (?) with her exceedingly weird hairdo and equally grating voice is even worse.

        One wonders if Mr Moat has actually widened the scope of his targets – or are the police seeking to justify a shoot-to-kill policy when Mr Moat is finally apprehended? The local police force has been made to look utterly ridiculous and there is nothing more guaranteed to spur the police into tardy action than to target one of their own, irrespective of how many of the public they may have let down/gunned down in the meantime.

        After all, if the threat, apparently made by Mr Moat as he was about to leave prison, had been acted upon, then one man shot dead and two others serious injured might have been avoided.

        Airey Belvoir says:

        The plod have only said that Moat is now a danger to ‘the wider public’ because when it was police only he was sworn to slot, they feared that the public would not be too bothered about turning him in.

    I want Daphne Miliband to win so that it’ll look really good when the leader of the opposition is asked awkward questions about torture, rendition etc. He’ll then have to resign leading to another leadership campaign, one that will see the ultimate victory of satan’s little helper.


    • 65
      Mr Spock says:

      So Mr Wonga, you wish a shapeshifter – the person you call Miliband – to become the Leader of the Socialist Rich List. He isn’t a homo sapien, of course but a Klingon pretending to be a Vulcan. And only alien sorts can interpret his real purpose. You will note that both he and his brother appeared on your Earth. Fully formed. There was no childhood…….like John Redwood, another…….

      It takes Satan’s money to get his helpers into power, and Satan controls the media and history curriculum so that the matter of how Hitler and Lenin/Trotsky got the huge amounts of money AND FROM WHERE is never discussed. Here’s a clue: Satan lives in Wall Street and the City of London.

          • Gordon Brown stole my pension says:

            Attending diversity awareness courses, probably. And loving it. Flicking through the coursework books, every page showing a smiling non-white face, just like Labour’s vision of what Britain should be.

            On a lighter note, I think the Plod should hire Douglas Hogg; he’s pretty good at getting moats cleared.

        Dream on, we can’t even deport Hamza to the U.S. FFS, because the EU have ruled his “human rights” are in danger Stateside.
        What chance sending anyone back to the ME no matter what they do or have done if they play the “gay card”? Precisely, zero.

    Martin Day BBC political correspondent says:

    Following the debacle over the Coalition Government’s swingeing cuts of the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union, said:

    “Pupils, parents and school staff across the country are not only reeling from the devastating news of their school building programmes being slashed but also from the confusion and inaccuracy surrounding which schools are in or out of the project.

    “Cutting the school building projects is totally unnecessary and is jeopardising the educational future of many children and young people.

    “Thousands of parents and school staff should be deeply angry that the Government has chosen to exploit the schools’ building programme to benefit a privileged few pupils on the grounds that they will be educated in an academy school, rather than those pupils in dilapidated buildings.

    “The NASUWT believes that it is time for schools and parents to voice their concern to members of Parliament.

    “I am therefore writing today to every school on the Government’s list to encourage them to support a lobby of Parliament on Monday 19 July.

    “I will also be meeting with other education unions later today at the TUC to seek their support.”

    Will Harry Roberts record of 3 months be broken ???

    Killer Harry Roberts, who shot dead two cops in 1966, evaded police for three months living rough in Epping Forest, Essex.

    Roberts used the training he gained as a soldier in Malaysia to survive after gunning down officers he feared were about to find guns his gang had used in an armed robbery.

    Like Moat, Roberts – now 74 and still in jail – knew the area he was hiding out in having camped in Epping Forest as a child.

        The so called police are shit scared of any nutter with a weapon.

        Six real policemenn, rather than social service workers masquerading as cops, should be able to track and kill this crazy fucker. Armoured cars, SAS, reinforcements – ffs are we hunting a platoon of Viet Cong.

        Cops are nothing more than blouses in cod pieces.

    Lord Puttnam formerly known as David Puttnam. Often described as a film producer NO HE WAS NOT [ or at least no good when he tried his hand, fired by Columbia].

    He is an advertising man and a typical shallow shit supporter of Blair and co.

    That does it: embargo!

    I never shop in Sainsbury’s, watch a Puttnam film or buy a Follett book again as I dislike their politics.

    The public have been donating too much money to these people, so much so that they have thousands of excess to chuck at Milipede.

    ‘ang on.

    Putnam is a British movie luvvie whom is using his private wealth to subsidise a particular politician, nothing to contentious there one might think. Except….

    ….. Lord Dave is a British movie luvvie. Ergo he must have been in reciept of flippin great chuncks of dosh in the shape of subsidies from the UK Taxpayer. Extending our thinking it is not unreasonable therefore to conclude that Lord Dave’s wealth stems in some part from the UK Taxpayer. And if that’s truly the case then it’s te UK taxpayer who is, indirectly, subsidising Millipede Minimus’s leadership campaign

    Is that kosher?

    […] the absence of clear polling evidence Guido says “follow the money”. David Miliband has raised more money than all the rest and he has the weight of  punter’s money backing him. It will be close, […]
