Pollsters Backing Ed V Punters Backing David

Someone is going to get a shock based on these Sunday Times/YouGov polling results. With two weeks to go until the results are known and voting already taking place it is, all are agreed, going to be close. Punters are predicting a win for David Miliband whilst pollsters YouGov are predicting a narrow win for Ed Miliband.  Admittedly the punters could change their positions on this news, but as things stand currently they are ignoring the pollster overall.

Guido is sticking with his money on David Miliband to beat his brother Ed because he disagrees with the YouGov / LeftFootForward analysis of how the second preference votes will break. It will be close undoubtedly and there does seem to have been a shift in the union affiliates section of the electoral college and Guido has taken money off David to win that section (Ed is now 60% favourite to win the union members vote). David Miliband is still overall favourite to win the leadership, the MEP/MPs votes and the members votes. Guido can only think that the switch in union affiliates to Ed is a result of Union bosses’ endorsements sent out with ballot papers.

UPDATE : Ed Balls remains favourite to be eliminated in the first round. Oh dear…

      Yes, aren’t they dull? If it is a tie on the final count, perhaps their mother can choose whose turn it is to play with the Labour Party.

        Tessa Tickles says:

        ‘Play’ is the right word. Ed’s only been an MP for 5 years and yet thinks himself supremely qualified to run the whole Labour Party.

        If I were a Labour MP, perhaps one who’s been in the job for 20 years, I’d be a bit fecked-off about that.

          Same as CallmeDave. I dunno – would David Davis have won a majority? I kinda think he would have done better but I guess there are too many variables with Euro sceptic Tories fighting each other. Ho hum.

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            Maybe. I guess in Ed’s favour, his job description will read (in entirety): “Obey the unions without question.”

            No intellect or experience required.

          • Dick the Prick says:

            Bit over qualified then? Tee hee hee. Hasn’t big Milipede got rubbish A Level grades or something yet still ‘curiously’ got into Oxford? Surely nothing to do with nepotism. Mind you, didn’t CallmeDave get Buckingham palace to help him get a job? Hmm.

            In the last Private Eye there was a story about the ex-president of Columbia getting a UN gig even though he pushed soldiers to summararily execute his enemies. Swings & roundabouts, swings and roundabouts.

      Based on that I’d say your about most of the way towards determining if people will vote for them. Bearing in mind Ed M doesn’t seem to have a single suit that fits.

      Based on this: David M > Ed M > Andy >> Balls = Abbott

      Can David carry the party with him? He’s echoing Cameron a lot with his socialism is not statism stuff and the “Good Society.

    Electorate remember that All the Liebour Leadership Hopefuls endorsed this charlatan.. says:

    Investment is in the news, not least because of ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair’s reference to it. While admitting that his relationship with Gordon Brown had been “difficult” (a masterpiece of understatement), he has heaped praise on his former Chancellor’s “brilliance” in delivering massive “investment” in health, in education, in public services.Investment is thought of as good. It is when you postpone the pleasures of present consumption in order to achieve greater gains later. Instead of spending it, you put money to work now in order to make more of it in the future. This bears no relationship to what Gordon Brown did, and it would be helpful if politicians in future were more fastidious in their use of language.

    Gordon Brown engaged in the activity we call “spending,” not “investment.” His “investment” in the public services was like my investment in a Mars Bar. There was no current pleasure foregone; it WAS current pleasure. He did not postpone present consumption; it WAS present consumption.

      Gordon Browns 10 years of economic boom was built on the back of the china dividend. Very cheap prices of goods from china and india, now however living standards and wages are rising in those countries so that golden egg won’t come again.

      New Labour squandered away this golden oppurtunity by creating non-jobs in the public sector and fueling barmy social schemes all so they could re-elected. And now we’re going to spend the next 20 years paying the price for there short-sightedness.

      If there is a hell (and I think there is) i’d say about 90% of all MPs in westminster are heading there when they die.

            When you have three parties offering the same options, with the exception of management style.

          Thats the point smoggie, for 10 years inflation was kept down, and fuelled by massive credit on the back of house price inflation we got what was described as ‘no more boom and bust’


          But these things can never ever go on forever, and the larger the falsehood of the ‘success’, the larger and more painful the correction when it comes…

        • 396
          Budgie says:

          Low (and falling) prices of goods from China = (illusorily) low inflation. Low inflation = low bank rate. Low interest rates = over borrowing. Over borrowing = house price inflation + government over spending. (Brown = too thick to notice).

      What Osborne is saying is (I’m not sure of the figures, but this is the gist of it) – when you’ve got 10million people claiming disability benefit, but you’ve only got 5 million people in the country that are actually disabled, then you need to do something about it, and I think that’s fair enough.

      Angry and Despondent says:

      There are two kinds of disabled in this country. One kind are those needing constant nursing care, have extreme physical disabilities, or suffer severe mental impairment. These deserve all the help the state can give them.

      Then there are those I would suggest make up the majority – those that Labour classed as “disabled” to reduce unemployment statistics. Those with glass backs, suffer “depression” because a parent died ten years before, and those who suffer from the myriad of exotic syndromes “discovered” during the past 13 years. We all know at least one neighbourhood layabout with some intangible illness that prevents him/her doing a day’s graft.

      I notice the BBC ALWAYS shows a genuinely severely disabled person who’s highly unlikely to have their benefits reduced but seem unable to find the malingerers who seem to inhabit sink estates who probably will be affected by any cuts.

      I know one bloke who’s a local councillor (Labour, of course), who’s been on disability benefits for more than twenty years. Always done fiddle jobs, including chalet cleaning at Skegness Butlins, and brags about it down at his local working mens club. He’s very surveillance conscious and never leaves the house without wearing a surgical collar and using a walking stick if he sees a strange car parked near his house. He’s actually bragged that those who work for a living are mugs. He’a a slippery bastard who’s been dropped numerous times to the social but he manages to keep getting away with it.

    who was it fucked the economy in the 1930′s depression? The Tories. on the 10 September 1931 Phillip Snowden as Chancellor, the new national government issued an emergency budget, which immediately instituted a round of cuts in public spending and wages. Public sector wages and unemployment pay were cut by 10%, and income tax was raised from 4s 6d to 5s in the pound [6] (from 22.5% to 25%) This reduced purchasing power in the economy, worsening the situation, and by the end of 1931 unemployment had reached nearly 3 million. [7] . The measures were also unsuccessful at defending the gold standard, which the National Government had ostensibly been created to defend.Only after they were forced to abandon the gold standard did the economy recover, no thanks to anything they did.

      The economy was fucked on purpose back then so you would come off the gold standard but you never look at the big picture.

      It’s been a steady decline ever since coupled with population rises brought about due to fiat finance that have ultimately benefited who?

            The National Government. A British success story ended by National SOCIALIST Hitler in 1939.

            The conventional view of 1930s Britain is of slag heaps, unemployed men hanging round street corners with nothing to do, hunger marches and economic depression.

            This is only part of the truth, as the 1930s was a period of transformation. While most of the world suffered from the depression, the UK was able to shrug off the worst effects thanks to prudent management of the economy by the National Government and a degree of protectionism. Areas of high unemployment remained, but they were isolated from the general trend.

            For many, it was a time of rising prosperity. Consumption increased as new gadgets – vacuum cleaners, cookers, fridges – came on the market. Car ownership increased massively and, as leisure time grew, so did travel as people took holidays, often for the first time. Millions went to the cinema, and eating out became commonplace. To back up the increase in consumption new forms of credit emerged, with HP the most popular.

    In 2001 Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad proposed a new currency that would be used initially for international trade among Muslim nations. The currency he proposed was called the Islamic gold dinar and it was defined as 4.25 grams of pure (24 carat) gold. Mahathir Mohamad promoted the concept on the basis of its economic merits as a stable unit of account and also as a political symbol to create greater unity between Islamic nations. The purported purpose of this move would be to reduce dependence on the United States dollar as a reserve currency, and to establish a non-debt-backed currency in accord with Islamic law against the charging of interest.[51] However, to date, Mahathir’s proposed gold-dinar currency has failed to take hold.

          Crow was an outspoken critic of Tony Blair who “squandered a massive landslide from an electorate hungry for change, poured billions of public pounds into private pockets and accelerated the growing gap between rich and poor”.[10] Speaking at the founding conference of the National Shop Stewards Network in July 2007 Crow called for a new party for the working class.[11] This was repeated at the NSSN and Campaign for a New Workers’ Party conference in 2008.In March 2009, Crow announced that the RMT would be fronting the No to the EU – Yes to Democracy platform with an array of socialist organisations and individuals for the 2009 European Parliament elections. No2EU — Yes to Democracy stood for a Europe of “independent, democratic states that value its public services and does not offer them to profiteers; a Europe that guarantees the rights of workers and does not put the interests of big business above that of ordinary people”.

          As the party leader and lead candidate in London has said, he was “not against workers coming into the country”, unlike other Eurosceptic groupings, but he is against “two workers from different countries competing against each other on different rates of pay” and added that “Our main role will be out there among working people, giving them our support and helping to save their industries from privatisation”.[15]

          “RMT have made it clear we expect managers to abide by the existing job security agreements and we would simply not be doing our job as a union if we allowed the tube to treat our members as cannon fodder who can be hired and fired at will”, adding that “It wasn’t our members who created the downturn and we will not be bullied into accepting that they should be forced to pay for an economic crisis that was cooked up by the bankers and the politician

          Crow lives in a housing association property in Woodford, Greater London, with partner Nicola Hoarau, with whom he has a daughter (born August 1993).

          Six weeks earlier on 1 January 2002 Crow was attacked outside his home by two men wielding an iron bar.[6] He speculated that he was the victim of hired employer muscle.[7]

            In 1990 the National Union of Railwaymen merged with the National Union of Seamen to form the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), and the following year Crow became London Underground representative on the National Executive. In 1991 he became assistant general secretary and on 14 February 2002 Crow was elected by the membership to succeed Jimmy Knapp as General Secretary. He received 12,051 votes in the election — nearly twice as many as the other two candidates put together (Phil Bialyk received 4,512 votes and Ray Spry-Shute received 1,997).

    The finest double act in British entertainment was undoubtedly the Labour and Conservative pairing of Alf, the comedy socialist, and his straight man Bertie the toff. The standard routine of Alf pissing his wages away down the pub, and Bertie docking his pay, led to much merriment in the ailses, as the ever suffering British public convulsed themselves in helpless mirth at the antics of the hapless pair, slapsticking their way through another stillborn routine written incidently by the gifted pen of Herman the Belgian, probably the faceless author of many other popular European farces still playing to full houses across the continent.

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
