Ed Miliband Admits Defeat

In a chat with Mumsnet the Labour leadership contenders were asked which historical figure they would be. Cue standard answers like Nye Bevan (Burnham), Republican president Lincoln (Mili-D) and, er, Elvis (Balls). However most telling was Ed Miliband’s answer – Bobby Kennedy.

So he’s the little brother who never made it to the top. Though the similarities must end there, David Miliband “is no Jack Kennedy” to coin a phrase

    Imagine Dave Milliblair with a Cuba missile crisis — he’d not only end up incinerating the lot of us, but he’d probably emerge from the bunker saying the best man won.

    So Ed did you see the front of the Guardian, something to do with that Hunt Castro saying Communism has failed and can’t be exported.

    At least your old man will be spinning in his grave just like all those other failed revoltionaries. It will be the only time any of the fuckers revolve.

    The Marxist Hoons must be trying to brush El Jefe under the carpet. For some odd reason Gang Strike in El Salvador is more important.

    Still the writing is on the wall for the Reds, but the fuckers at the BBC can’t bring themselves to cover this huge admission by Casto.

    The less damning wording, “Castro doubts over Cuban system” is on The Americas front page.

    rather than “Cuban model no longer works, says Fidel Castro.” on this BBC web page:

    No mention of Castro’s words on The World News Front Pages. This is a more significant development than the Marxist Hunts at White Powder City would like us to believe.

    El Pais had “Fidel Castro: “The Cuban model no longer works for us or for us”

    Too many BBC fuckwits still wear the Che T-shirts and have the posters that they used to admire on the walls of their student digs.

    I had a mate at college who was into all that Che Guavara bollocks and he always wore that ugly green military shirt with the red star on it. The fat fuck could not even run 100 yards, yet insisted on wearing half a military uniform every day to college. A week of military basic training would have killed the socialist twat.

    I knew back in the 1980s that these controlled economies under socialism could never work and that socialism was fatally flawed. I never quite understood why. I could not fathom why anyone could support such a basically and fundamentally flawed political philosophy.

    Then I realised later that this philosophy was created by the elite to compete with the bastardised child of capitalism (Corporatism) to divide and conquer the masses.

    Corporatism and Socialism are slightly different versions of the same thing. Getting real power and tangible wealth, into as few hands as possible.

    In both systems, for the people at the top, there is immense wealth and power over life and death. for the people at the bottom, the only difference between corporatism and national socialism, is the boot kicking them.

    With National socialism the boot has a national flag.
    With Corporatism, it has a company logo.

    The poor sod on the ground is going to get a good kicking from either one.

  84. 84

    Er…the reason Bobby Kennedy never “made it to the top” was because he was assassinated during the US primaries in 1968. Had he not been, there is a fairly good chance he would have become president that year, and failing that, a very good chance he would have become president, post-Watergate, in 1976.

    Yes, of course it works. I prefer to call it Marxism, or Progressivism, and it works by keeping the proletariat stupid, duping the middle class so that they allow their wealth to be stripped from them, turning the Police into guardians of Political Correctness so that there is fear of real crime, passing over ones sovreignty to an Internationalist organisation so that ones culture is swamped and forgotten, and generally creating chaos in society. It financially enriches me and my chums quite handsomely. I should be in jail, but the bastards are far too stupid to figure it out. Ha Ha Ha Ha.

    Who cares, Guido, can we move on to the London Mayor election. Liebour are dead whoever gets elected. I am more interested why Boris Johnson and his chum Cameron want to extend immigration to the Turks. Perhaps the London mayor election might give an insight. We now know how Straw, Blair and Blunkett wanted to change the face of Britain by mass immigration and then con everyone of the real position or threaten them as being racist if they were challenged. MPs like these should be hounded from office for their deceptive behaviour. If Cameron and Johnson want to follow the same path they should be kicked out of office.

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.”
