Does Anybody Really Like Balls?

It is possible that Ed Balls could come last in the leadership contest behind Diane Abbott and Andy Burnham. If so it would be the final humiliation of the TaliBrown, the cabal of bullying second-raters who ousted three-time election winner Tony Blair to install Gordon Brown, a politician who has never won a competitive election in his life.

With rumours* circulating that following Charlie Whelan’s inability to get Unite to endorse him, he’ll withdraw from the contest, Blinky says ‘I fight on; I fight to win. I’m in it to win it. I am the best person to fight this coalition.’ Good, it will give us a good laugh to see him totally humiliated.

*You first read about Balls withdrawing and supporting David Miliband in return for endorsement for the Shadow Chancellorship on this blog.

        Here’s a thing, just imagine if the millitwits are planning to mount a bubble attack! Whereby they offer themselves up as some sort of dream ticket. It’s just the sort of thing that the BBC would go ape-shit with enthusiasm over; two Russian brothers linking arms to fight for the rights of well off socialists, err I mean the WORKING CLASS. Lets face it the labour party have been all about style ever since, well the 1960s really, around about the time that the working class got to a sort of OK level compared with the condition of working class that the labour party was set up to help in the first place. After which the labour party started to look for other reasons, other than to work in opposition to the Tories to justify its existence (which at one time they were extremely effective at, though now that role is more or less the agency of the BBC). Race being amongst the most enduring of those post working class issues, just look at where the scotish monster choice to launch his ‘comeback’! So what we have left of the labour party is this meaningless political entity that has to dress itself up with novel marketing garb to disguise its hollowness, hence ‘New labour’. Now as a piece of dazzling PR the two millibits as leader(s) of the party would be a great eye (media) catching stunt that would not only ensure acres of coverage but would also be a ‘subtle’ copycat of the ever more effective and growing in popularity position of the coalition.

          Interesting to note that the Millis are Tribal as well…their own Tribe…

          Labour has become a party of narrow sectional interests

          Scottish Catholics, some Welsh and northern English sheep shaggers, plenty of Hampsteads and Primrose Hillers…plus some ethics to make a little curry…

          Labour, in fact, is no longer a national party…

            The sad part is, that they have not been a national party for decades.

            New labour was never a national party, but a party of minority tribes.

            Instead of ruling for the good of the nation, labour desperately rushed through polices to turn this one nation into a patchwork of minorities which resembled labour.

            It was a grotesque experiment in social vandalism based entirely on narrow party interests.

            The coalition ought to strip out all the extremist politically correct bullshit enshrined in law by labour and allow people to have the freedom of their own opinions.

Am also impressed by his energy in the leadership contest. He’s not expected to win, but he’d make a fearsome shadow chancellor.

      What Achievements ?
      All Labour did for education whilst in power was dumb down the exam system which gave almost everybody A grades.

      Do not confuse shiny new buildings with the quality of education that takes place within them.

      I am reminded of a TV program a few years ago in which Present day “A Grade” students sat their exams again this time according to the standards of the 1950’s. Most failed never mind getting good grades.

      Their other “achievement” was to make it easier to get into university under the pretence of taking down mythical barriers to working class kids. Gordon Brown was instrumental in creating this class war myth. Truth was if you were bright enough you could get into uni regardless of your background. Brown pedalled lies about this.

      Turning every education establishment into a university offering vaccuous degrees in “media studies” etc was a facade hiding the declining standards.

      Kept youngsters of the unemployment figures right enough and therein lies another deception…

        Sadly,man from the AW shortlist, you forget that it was the Tory governments of the 80s and early 90s who made poly’s and tech colleges into bogus universities.

        I say this as a ex-uni teacher who is extremely angry about what Labour did to every aspect of our country.

        It was Thatcher who took the authority to set standards away from the principal university examination boards and gave that authority to a bunch of spivs who manage profit making quangos.

        All politicians are lying hoons – some have a little more charm than others.

        The NHS should be run by doctors and nurses. Education should be run by teachers and examiners. The armed forces should be commanded by leaders – not by the slippery politicians in uniform that we see now.

        However, this will never happen because our society is controlled by parasitic viruses who inhabit the cess pit of Parliament. A plague on all of them – hanging is too good!

    Ed Balls could pull out in favour of David Miliband, but Milly could only make him Shadow Chancellor if he were elected to the Shadow Cabinet. There is no guarantee of that.

    How priceless, if neither of them were to be elected to the list of those to whom Ed Miliband was to allocate portfolios. They would probably both announce that they were leaving Parliament at the next Election, as Tony Blair had been about to do when John Smith died.

    As much as anything else, that would be one in the eye of the BBC, which has been campaigning for David Miliband ever since Blair announced that he was standing down.

          FI didn’t expose itself as corrupt today – it’s always been corrupt if you believe it’s anything to do with sport.

          It’s simply a professional entertainment show, filled with well-fed performing animals, ring-mastered by Bernie and choreographed to produce the close season-end result he needs to keep the viewing figures high enough to draw in the advertising bunce. And because the whole circus is nothing without Ferrari, don’t be surprised when things happen like today. Where do you think Simon Cowell got the idea ?

          But the same is now true of all ‘professional sport’ – an oxymoron if ever there was one. They’re all about maximising the cash and nothing to do with honest competitive endeavour, whether that’s athletics, snooker, football, cricket, it’s all ruled by the £ sign, delivered from sponsors, advertisers and the bookies. The result is secondary to the cash-flow.

          Enjoy it for what it is but, if you want real sport now, of any type, then stick with the amateurs to see pure competition unpolluted by cash.

    Democracy and Bananas
    The big three public sector unions have spoken – GMB, Unite and Unison – or at least their ‘political committees’ have made known their recommendations.

    Ed Miliband is the man they want to be the next Labour leader – in preference to his brother David who is seen as a ‘moderniser’ – and is therefore regarded with deep suspicion by union bosses

    Ed was previously one of Gordon Brown’s inner circle – and is now seen as the only man who can stop brother David from being crowned king of Labour’s castle.

    Two other candidates – Diane Abbott and Ed Balls – are both much closer to the unions in policy terms.

    Particularly Diane Abbott who has always been against the war in Iraq – and has always been in favour of scrapping Trident, Britain’s ‘independent’ nuclear deterrent.

    Diane is also the only candidate who was not a minister in the last disastrous Labour government – and who opposed Gordon Brown’s disgraceful decision to abandon the 10p tax rate.

    Yet despite these impressive credentials Diane has failed to win the backing of the GMB’s, Unite’s or Unison’s political committees – who have all coincidentally declared in favour of the Brother Ed.

    So, now millions of trade union members will be urged to vote – for someone they don’t know – for reasons they don’t understand – and this process will help decide who will be the next leader of the Labour party.

    It really is as crazy as it sounds.

    But the electoral college system was set up for precisely this purpose – to give union bosses and their faceless political committees – undue influence over the Labour party’s internal affairs.

    Most ordinary union members won’t even bother to vote – the great majority of the millions to be balloted – will not take part in the election, and rightly so.

    Yet the unions will still cast collectively one third of the total votes – in Labour’s most important leadership election.

    Now, if that’s democracy – then I’m a banana!

    The unions obviously see their future in a communist environment,which they have been wedded to for years.
    Burnham and Abott are a distraction which is irrelevent the real issue is which of the Millibannanas will be elected as the leader of the liebour party.
    In the course of time the electorate will be asked to choose who they want as a government and given the choice that is on offer I sincerely believe that the british public will choose to reject the liebour party given the mess that they landed this country in through their mismanagement of the economy.

    Afghanistan war logs: Story behind biggest leak in intelligence history says:

    From US military computers to a cafe in Brussels, how thousands of classified papers found their way to online activists

    US authorities have known for weeks that they have suffered a haemorrhage of secret information on a scale which makes even the leaking of the Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam war look limited by comparison.

    The Afghan war logs, from which the Guardian reports today, consist of 92,201 internal records of actions by the US military in Afghanistan between January 2004 and December 2009 – threat reports from intelligence agencies, plans and accounts of coalition operations, descriptions of enemy attacks and roadside bombs, records of meetings with local politicians, most of them classified secret

    The Guardian’s source for these is Wikileaks, the website which specialises in publishing untraceable material from whistleblowers, which is simultaneously publishing raw material from the logs.

    Washington fears it may have lost even more highly sensitive material including an archive of tens of thousands of cable messages sent by US embassies around the world, reflecting arms deals, trade talks, secret meetings and uncensored opinion of other governments.

    Wikileaks’ founder, Julian Assange, says that in the last two months they have received yet another huge batch of “high-quality material” from military sources
