‘Red Ed’ Has CCHQ Licking Lips

If as many expect Mili-D wins the MPs’ vote, splits the members vote with his brother, but Mili-E still wins overall because the union vote goes overwhelmingly to him, Guido gets the impression that the few remaining Tory strategists sitting in CCHQ won’t believe their luck. Kevin Maguire can see the danger, Mili-E will he says be “portrayed as the union’s man, lacking a mandate from the Parliamentary Labour Party”.  He will be “Red Ed” – the union baron’s preferred puppet…

Is the Labour Party actually going to reject Mili-D, the only candidate who is attempting to reach out to the centre and hasn’t given into the left, for his younger brother? “They’re skipping Hague and going straight to IDS, in tune with what the party members want, out of tune with what the voters want” says one CCHQ source. Polls show that Labour Party members themselves know Mili-D is more likely to beat Cameron, they still don’t care, emotionally they want a leader who tells them what they want to hear. Soon we will find out if Labour’s heart has ruled over its head…

        Balls for lead.. shit! I fucked that up didn't I ? says:

        the small problem is you already shot your wad on Balls who everyone knows is the brownite extremist and if, as everyone expects, Mili-D gets in you’ll still portray him a a communist because that’s all you know how to do

          You talk about small problems. Fair enough. One has to keep within one’s limitations. I see big problems:

          “Government spends £5 for every £4 raised, says Office for National Statistics” DT. OK, I know this is the ultra-conservative DT that you would not want to soil your hands on (ha ha) but they are quoting the governments own sources so you have to take it seriously.

          Now, look at the monkeys who are standing for election. Like Brown, who they are now happy to deride (pity they didn’t do it before), none of them is even aware that this is a problem. You can accuse me of using labels like communist all you like but I am talking about simple common sense. Labour had a bypass of that commodity some time in the 1960s and has deliberately chosen to do without it ever since.

          You cannot spend what you have not got AND expect to be able to carry on down this path to infinity. It is very simple. Why? Because someone else will have to pay for it. (China maybe, I hear you say?). And when they feel that they own us, what do you imagine their price will be? (OK, you can get your communist labels out again, maybe we will need them after all.)

          Not difficult, was it?

          • try again says:

            Frankly they can both go fuck themselves but lazily labeling them communists is laughably feeble since they are both basically Blairite.

            And none of them says any cuts will be needed do they ?
            Or are you trotting out straw men yet again in desperation ?

          • Mr Ned says:

            It was funny watching the BBC go apoplectic against Cable this morning and completely misconstrue what he was saying.

            Had he really been attacking Capitalism in a “I prefer socialism” sort of way, the BBC would have been massively in favour of what he was saying, but because he was attacking Corporatism, the abuse of corporate power in creating a corrupt system where competition, free-enterprise and small and medium sized businesses are kept out of the market, the BBC laid into him, for the BBC are Marxist corporatists above all else.

            Cable is right, we need more SMEs and the corporatism af the last 13 years must be tackled with urgency.

            The difference between corporatism and socialism? under corporatism, the boot stamping your face has a company’s corporate logo on it. Under socialism, it is a national flag.

            Both systems squash free-enterprise, competition, individuality and freedom under the boot of monopoly power.

            I know for a fact that millions of pounds are wasted because corporations do corrupt deals with each other to keep their elites in power in the market. Even when it harms their own company’s bottom line.

            I know of one corporation that has been offered a site license for a needed software application. The users within the company want to use this software, because it is much better than what they currently use. It will make them become significantly more productive and save the company a lot of time and money. Enough to make the software cost less than nothing. The maintenance on the software costs less than for their current software. The company that writes the new software is a medium sized company which is more flexible to the needs of it’s customers than the corporation that produces their current software. Yet, this medium sized software company is kept out of this part of the market due to a dodgy deal which is costing the tax-payer millions of pounds. Why the tax payer? because it is the tax-payer that pays for the product that the corporation produces.

            Cable is right about ending corporate abuses and creating a freer, open, transparent, level playing field where competition is allowed, enterprise encouraged and not stifled by dodgy deals and corruption.

            Labour where happy to pretend to be conservative, whilst in reality being out-and out corporatists. The end result is almost indistinguishable from Marxism. They would concentrate all power into fewer and fewer hands until they were at the top table with the corporations holding monopoly power. If they could not create their Marxist utopia, they would settle for a corporatist one.

          • Greychatter says:

            Vince Cable is talking sense if you don’t work for the BBC of the Big Banks or Tesco or the big monopoly private utilities companies.

            Where is the competition against Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsburys – British Gas, United Utilities? how many small businesses can survive against these “giants in the know”. Presumably all ultimately controlled by the banks.

            Look at the empty town center shopping streets.

            Big business and planners in the Town Halls appear to give preference to the contacts they have cultivated over the years and fall over themselves for firms like Tesco to set up in their towns, killing all the small shops.

            Its probably easier to collect rates and council tax from the big boys than dozens of small shops.

            Look at the way Big firms and banks and utitilities want everyone to pay bills by Direct Debit- giving them control over the money in our bank accounts.

          • Mong-U-Mental says:

            100% correct, Mr. Ned. Maybe it needs stating that Corporatism is an unhealthy partnership of big business and the state working counter to the interests of the people – not simply big business.

            SME’s don’t just need to exist, they have to have the potential ( i.e. not be blocked from ) of growing to challenge big business in order to keep big business honest. Excessive regulation – now almost all EU driven – blocks this (costs do not scale, so the % cost is higher on SMEs). No surprise – Corporatism has played a large part in European systems.

    the old Dufflebag says:

    In reality will it really make a tad of difference which is elected…the new voice of labour will be a recast of the old script using a new language of socialism but steadfastly refusing to acknowledge the hash the last 13 years produced… focusing criticism on the coalition’s budget cutting…and saying whatever it takes to convince the diehard socialist core vote that the new regime has their welfare central to future policy development.

    In their dreams.

      Tony E says:

      It may well be that we are going to get another Labour Government. Problem is for Labour, that there will not be the abundances of cash to spend in 2015, even less if they topple the coalition and get in before.

      There is a hard bed of socialist voters in this country now, it is no longer a ‘small c conservative country’, mainly because so many have become used to sucking on the teat and have been educated through schools and universities that this is the only fair way to run a country.

      Until we have a Labour government which is ‘broke’ when it enters office and is unable to practice the socialism that it preaches, we will never be rid of them. Every time the right fixes the economy and Labour breaks it, they can just sing the old song about how the left is fair and progressive and the right just looks after its own.

      In 2015 (or before) they will not be able to increase spending, they will not be able to go to the money markets without the credit rating falling, and they will be watched closely by those markets if they roll the printing presses. They would be forced into tight fiscal policy and would therefore fail.

        Grumpy Old Man says:

        Several good points, well made. I’d like to add, if I may, that the 1945 Attlee govt entered power with the Country broke. They managed the economy so well that food rationing lasted till a couple of years into the next Tory Govt, 8 years after the War. But they did give us the NHS – a wonderful concept that turned into the nightmare we have today.

      Guido i think you’re forgetting the potential risks involved with David Militwat. He has a track record as a ditherer, he is tainted as an arch-Blairite and best of all for Cameron it seems likely that the torture inquiry will find that D Milibanana did something wrong… anything wrong to do with torture and he’ll sink at the next election.

      The BBC and Guardian, with the education establishment have been working for years to establish the idea that labour is good and benign, maybe sometimes too idealistic but decent and good in itself. The Tories are “nasty” and their only virtue is practicality. Hence the general drift leftwards. Milbanana would torpedo such strategy with torture links.

    Johnny says:

    Sadly, the Labour Party always used its heart for decisions, not its head and got Blair then Brown. They have learnt nothing from the recongition by others that the British Middle Voters really do count.

    People know that Public Servants are overpaid at the top and the BBC is arrogant and way overpaid. Our Public Sector should be at the level of twenty or thirty years ago, at some 40% or less of GDP. All the Socialist and Communist Options have been tried and failed. Local power and democracy where Officals can be called to account, then fired is the only way to go.

    My instinct is the the Laour Party will elect Ed Miliband, who actually seems a little more human, if somewhat misguided than his “Geek” Brother David who is a failed Senior Minister of the Brown Regime, now hated by the Public.

    Anonymous says:

    If Ed Miliband wins some say David Miliband will leave frontline politics and apparently Ed Balls doesn’t get on well with Red Ed either.

    Ed won’t tame the Blairites, it would be back to the 80s for Labour.

    However, if the economy doesn’t come good (and there’s a small chance of that happening) Mili-E might be the only alternative and that would be dangerous.

    In terms of character he’s no leader, but he’s hardly as left wing as many say he is.

    • 12
      the old Dufflebag says:

      You could be right Anon but I doubt David Miliband will leave politics…hes too self serving to walk away…blood being thicker than water he will know his brother won’t shaft him royally but assuming that Balls could end up shadow chancellor to Ed Miliband as leader then the grating between David and Balls could cause some considerable trouble re direction and tone.

      The public’s view is unlikely to really change as all three are badly implicated in the 13 year joke but as you rightly say should the economy not recover in a timely cycle they could cook up a whole new fantasy of political rhetoric.

      Although in fairness to Labour they have had a pretty poor bunch of leadership contenders to choose from.Not one of them has that “something” that sets them apart from the herd.Thatcher had it,Major didn’t,Blair had it,Hague didn’t,IDS didn’t,Cameron does, & Brown certainly didn’t. Just like the Tories had the misfortune to face a Labour Party led by Blair(the consumate politician and all things to all men type of character)so do Labour have the misfortune to be facing Cameron(a man very much in Blair’s mould of politician )with the added element of the third party(LibDems)also being led by a personable leader.

    Your abuse can begin below……though i’m sure it will be thoughtless rubbish, misspelled too…..

  54. 181
    "Red Ed" says:

    David Miliband is raising cash from some ugly sources. He has £324,000 of donations for the leadership campaign – more than six times the amount his brother raised.

    Miliband D is trying to buy the Labour leadership. One of the largest donations – £50,000 – comes from public relations millionaire Anthony Bailey.

    Bailey is a lobbyist for a bevy of reactionaries and reprobates. His clients include BAE Systems, the arms firm embroiled in many bribery scandals.

    Bailey’s clients also include the reactionary customer of BAE, Saudi Arabia, and he has represented other countries with dubious human rights regimes like Syria and Morocco and oil firms like Shell. His main lobbying vehicle is his company Eligo International.

    Bailey loves to emphasise his relationships with European royalty. He brought together his arms trade, lobbying and royalist businesses together in one grotesque package when he launched Painting and Patronage – a BAE-funded promotion of the paintings of Prince Charles and Saudi Prince Khalid.

    Bailey is quite proud of his backward and reactionary pals. He runs a “forum” and boasts about all the vaguely royal Eurotrash he gets along.

    Just to give a flavour of the lobbyist’s creepy circles, Bailey boasts of having “the former King Constantine of the Hellenes” at one of his forums.

    Known as “Constantine the Little” in Greece, he is a truly pathetic figure. King Constantine swore in the fascist colonels in 1967. When the uppity fascists refused to be nice to their king, he tried to launch his own feeble counter-coup, which was a laughable failure.

    Since Greeks rose up and brought back democracy, the people have wanted nothing to do with Constantine. He made himself even more unpopular by suing Greece for millions of euros of “reparations” for losing his throne.

    As well as loving burned-out royals, Bailey is keen on the Catholic hierarchy. He is a member of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George, a Catholic “dynastic order of knighthood.”

    And he likes to impose his personal religious beliefs on the rest of us. Bailey is a keen promoter of religious academy schools, especially those linked to the Anglican United Learning Trust.

    Since 2003 he has encouraged anti-abortion politics by acting as patron of the “all-party parliamentary pro-life group.”

    Modernising Miliband isn’t only funded by royalist anti-abortion arms trade lobbyists.

    Another £50,000 donation to Miliband’s Labour leadership campaign fund comes from David Claydon, a leading British banker.

    Claydon became a Morgan Stanley managing director in 2005, where he stayed until he joined Union Bank of Switzerland this May.

    Both Morgan Stanley and UBS were deeply involved in the financial crisis, both losing hundreds of millions of pounds thanks to overextended loans. UBS is also one of the government’s advisers trying to privatise Royal Mail.

    Another regular source of money for Miliband comes from rich former supporters of the Social Democratic Party. First it tried to destroy the Labour Party from the outside. Now it is nibbling away from the inside.

    David Sainsbury bankrolled the SDP. Now he is paying £63,000 to Miliband’s leadership campaign. Parry Mitchell, who made his millions in the leasing business, helped found the SDP in 1980. He stood twice for the party, in Ealing and Acton in 1983 and Salisbury in 1987. He gave £10,000 to Miliband’s campaign. Miliband is the SDP’s plan B.

    But not all Miliband’s cash-rich pals have skeletons in their closet.

    Duncan Kenworthy gave £25,000. He doesn’t work for arms dealers or bankers – he made his money co-creating Fraggle Rock and producing Four Weddings And A Funeral.

      “Duncan Kenworthy gave £25,000. He doesn’t work for arms dealers or bankers – he made his money co-creating Fraggle Rock and producing Four Weddings And A Funeral.”

    Until Labour is wiped of the face of the earth Britain has NO long term future as there are enough ignorant gullible stupids in Britain who actually believe Labour propaganda and so vote for them no matter what they do. New Tory is far far closer to Old Labour values than The Fascist Monster that is New Labour.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“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.”
