Little Bro Has Big Mo (Too Late To Vote Though)

You can bet your bottom dollar that David Miliband is rueing the day he didn’t stab Gordon this morning. Suddenly the race to be the next Labour leader got interesting. The late-in-the-game switch to Ed as favourite has been aided in no small part by the fact it was left-wing Red Ken beating right-wing Blarite Oona in a miniature version of the national race. This must be torture for David…

Nice to see the lobby are catching up with the fast pace this morning, it seems the pack have realised some people actually put their money when their mouths are.

    But if you must … “Ken vs Oona” is far from simple left vs right. He does at least have experience and is a well known figure.

    Have the Labour lot still not decided who’s the next fall-guy…er, sorry, Leader. Seems to have been going on for months.

    Meanwhile, the cull of the Quangos is under way, there is ongoing discussion about how best to balance the country’s books, and sensible discussions are ongoing about all sorts of things, like future defence capabilities. Government is happening, not by press release, but by discussion and seeking agreement. Rather a welcome change.

    Potkettle says:

    The loony left really dont care if milli D is the correct person to lead them NOW.

    They are going to blame him for not stabbing Gordon on any of the 3 opportunities that he had.

    In their small brained heads he is now the reason they lost the last election not Brown. If he had got rid of Gordon they could have won. This made all the more clear to them due to the narrowness of their defeat.
    Had the defeat been a landslide he may have stood a chance as no one could have saved them but as it is he was the saviour that didnt bother and therefore he must be punished.

    Oh and he is a toff too!

    Potkettle says:

    milliband Ed had one what?

    If you dont know the difference between won and one you really shouldnt be shadow anything

    Well whoever wins tomorrow has big troubles within the labour party. prezza, who is angling for the treasurer’s job says labour are ‘almost broke’

    They are £20million in debt! I don’t think that is ‘almost broke’. In normal business parlance that’s ins+olve+nt. But then I wouldn’t have expected prezza to understand the difference. He’ll make them a very fitting treasurer.

    1. I will be over the moon if Red Ed “yes the chat with the liberals is going really well” (when they had LOST the election, wins.

    2. Is Harriet Harperson going to explode if two black women candidates fielded for leader and mayor don’t get elected and white middle aged men do? Does that mean that Labour are dominated by ‘ists’ or that harriet has failed in her job?

    Experience of nationalising every activity down to mini cabs,buying ethnic votes with public funds.The lefties chose a lefty,they chose this particular anti-patriot because he has a proven track record in buying votes, also buying influence with despicable foreign imams knowing how well that go`s down with the east london ummah.
    This time around the public mood is not for the return of some politically correct commisar who is hell bent on installing his own cliche around him.That is the old politics,the public want results for their money not an adoption agency for leftwing leeches

    This is the amazing thing about Labour’s brand of socialism; trying to control every aspect of life because the proletariat are deemed to be too thick to run their own affairs, whilst the all-controlling Party is itself sinking into tens of millions of pounds of unmanageable debt.

    Oh, and fucking-up the nation’s finances at the same time, to the tune of £4trillion.

    Still not happening. Between the pope, the labour party and spinning a line about Vince cable’s speech; you don’t sem to doing much holding the government to account. Your words above are looking very hollow.

    If you’re stuck for somewhere to look, how about Eric Pickles who seems unable to make a press release or do an interview without stretching the truth.

    Wasting £65 billion a year on bodies like:
    Government Hospitality Advisory Committee on the Purchase of Wine
    Consular Stakeholder Panel
    Committee on the Safety of Devices etc etc ad nauseum
    is simply not acceptable. Governments have managed to run the country perfectly well using the occasional expert and advisor. We don’t need whole committees stuffed full of placemen who pay themselves ridiculous salaries for a couple of hours “work” and couldn’t get a proper job in the real world.

    An open e-mail to David Cameron. Ref: Incident 1048 Thames Valley.

    Dear Dave, I regrettably find myself in a position similar to that of the little Dutch boy. So herewith attempt to alert the somnolent and unsuspecting citizenry, before the whole dam(n) mess manifests. You appear to be presiding over petrifaction of the police. In so far as, approaches to any point in the system are met with resigned indifference. Offers to undertake the task for them are ignored. Even the complaints system, seems to have been rendered ineffectual. As do politicians in charge. Consequently this message is FYI, rather than FYA. You might be inclined to wonder, why any need for urgency in relation to such matters could exist. Well as far as I am aware, it is wine that allegedly matures with age. Not evidence. I fully appreciate that discouraging the public from reporting incidents can create the illusion of declining incident rates. But isn’t that massaging our perceptions rather than managing our problems? If interested, Nick may, or may not, be able to fill-you-in with further details of this debacle. Since previously he was requested to keep a watching brief, with regard to what wasn’t happening. Assuming of course that he is not otherwise engaged, lecturing the world on how to put their houses in order.
    Meanwhile, the various insurance companies and victims involved in this, would dearly love to hear an explanation. If it is that there exists neither the wit nor wisdom to make things work, I apologize for adding to that intolerable burden. Our recourse then would be to our own devices. Applying the legal argument of, that which is necessary is legal.

    Condolences, Hans Kneesen.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
