Davided Endorsements

With the candidates back from holiday, the finishing line is finally in sight for the Labour leadership. The news that the New Statesman has fallen in line with the Labour youth and trade union movement to back Ed Miliband shouldn’t really come as much surprise. What is shocking is how seriously Labour hacktivists seem to be taking the endorsement of a magazine that barely scrapes 15,000 copies a month. To describe it as “big media endorsement” beggars belief. It seems the Staggers knows it’s audience though - all the university library readers were voting Ed anyway.

Word is lefty firebrand Jon Cruddas, whose second preference votes gave Harman the deputy-leadership in 2007, is set to endorse David Miliband imminently - real votes that would blow the New Statesman’s mere words out of the water.

UPDATE : Cruddas has endorsed D-Mili as expected.

    Put your money on Ed as he is using every dirty trick in the book to become leader before the AGW bandwagon finally packs in.

          You’re right of course, the last two were a venal, lying conman and an incompetent, mentally dysfunctional bully. The present one is a pale copy of his hero and will end up as hated as he. Happily, for the crop of talentless hacks jousting to be leader of ZaNu, whoever wins the election to be leader, it will be the last election they ever win.

    Ed M is a class one tosser just look at the opportunistic letter calling for a living wage. The opening line suggests the coalition are going to destroy an achievement, the Liebor party fucked the working classes harder than any prior administration.

    “With the coalition government set on jeopardising the anti-poverty gains made under the last government, it will increasingly fall to Labour councils to show what tackling poverty should look like.”

            I don’t know why you hate bankers so much but I suspect it’s because they lent you several hundred thousand pounds on an over-valued pile of compressed sawdust and breeze blocks and now they want you to pay the money back. Nobody likes been sold a pup and I do (slightly) feel sorry for you if that is the case. But you were the one who applied for the money. You are the one who signed for the massive loan. It really isn’t the banks fault.

            Buffett warns on investment ‘time bomb’

            Derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction

            Warren Buffett

            The rapidly growing trade in derivatives poses a “mega-catastrophic risk” for the economy and most shares are still “too expensive”, legendary investor Warren Buffett has warned.

            The derivatives market has exploded in recent years, with investment banks selling billions of dollars worth of these investments to clients as a way to off-load or manage ma r ket risk.

            But Mr Buffett argues that such highly complex financial instruments are time bombs and “financial weapons of mass destruction” that could harm not only their buyers and sellers, but the whole economic system.

            jgm2 Once again your pathological hatred of the Scots is revealed in your total ignorance of the act of sucession.

            This act is designed to protect the Church of England which the Monarch is Head of. She is not the head of any other christian denomination in The United Kingdom.

            The act is designed therefore to ensure that the Monarch is an Anglican due to his/her unique relationship with the Anglican Church.

            Therefore not only does it Barr Catholics but also other Protestant denominations which are not affiliated with the Anglican Church.

            I think you will find that abolishing it will cause the English establishment more problems than the Scots.

    Expenses staff ‘sworn at by MPs’
    (UKPA) – 48 minutes ago

    Staff working for the new Parliamentary expenses watchdog have been repeatedly sworn at and abused by MPs, with one volunteer reduced to tears, it has been disclosed.

    The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) has recorded 10 separate incidents of staff complaining that MPs behaved in an offensive or inappropriate manner since it started work last May.

    The details – released in response to a Freedom of Information request by London’s Evening Standard newspaper – do not include the names of the MPs concerned. It is not clear whether some MPs were involved in more than one incident.

    One woman MP told staff “I am going to murder someone today” while a male MP was said to have refused to take part in an Ipsa induction session to explain the new expenses system and to have thrown papers with his personal details at the facilitator.

    Another male MP was said to been “very difficult and disruptive” during his induction session, directing his anger towards a volunteer who eventually burst into tears and had to be pulled out by another member of staff.

    At that point the MP became “contrite and apologised”, although he continued to be difficult throughout the session. He later returned with a box of chocolates and a note addressed to the volunteer.

    Labour MP Denis MacShane, a former Europe minister, confirmed that he was the MP concerned.

    He said he had been horrified when he realised the young woman volunteer was becoming upset, but said he had been frustrated with the difficulties of using Ipsa’s “impossibly difficult computer system” which had defeated most MPs.

    Ideology before Reality: its Labour's DNA says:

    Two views. The first by an idiot, the second by a sensible man.

    1. “I also want Labour to lead where in the past it has failed to do so. We were wrong while in government not to overturn the ban on gay men donating blood. Many gay men would be very low risk donors, exactly the kind we need to encourage to address shortages in blood and many other countries run very safe systems without such a ban. I’m determined to find a better way of ensuring blood is safe.

    Ed Milliband (quoted on Labour List)

    (PS What countries…in Germany you can’t give blood if you have ever lived in England because of our high levels of AIDS and StDs)

    2. ‘It totally demonstrates why this ban is in place: The man was still having unsafe sex, and it was more by sheer luck he wasn’t HIV+

    We have seen infected blood pass screening before, so we HAVE to be picky. OK, so many of us may be totally infection-free, but gay men are notoriously promiscuous, and more likely to become infected than any other social group. This isn’t homophobia, this is just simple common sense. The usual bunch of lefties witter on about the equality, which is all they are really concerned about, and probably wouldn’t give a toss about giving blood if it wasn’t a gay issue. ‘

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
