No He Khan’t

There was much amusement at Sadiq Khan’s puff-piece interview in this month’s GQ. The Shadow Justice Secretary was hit with tough and rigorous questions such as:

“I live in Tooting and it’s amazing how much people there love you. You seem one of the few politicians who people not only trust but also really like. Why do you think that is?”

Guido hears all is not well in red circles where Khan is concerned. His slippery behaviour has made him deeply unpopular in the Parliamentary Labour Party and Guido understands there was distinct unease about his closeness to the leader. Given a distancing job, the one time campaign manager has all but been cast out by Miliband, because of concerns that Khan could bring him down. Over at justice, Sadiq no longer has any input, or a desk, in the shadow HQ. Khan still has lingering questions over his dodgy expenses habits, but Ed could survive losing a member of his Shadow cabinet rather than one of his inner circle…

    Khan is a Huntlike Hoon. He seems like a hypnotized robot thats been sent here by our real masters on the planet Zog. Whenever I see him on the tele he comes across as a thick shit with absolutely no understanding of British people. He probably does not even know what Oak apple day is. Slimey Git

    Labour are a complete disaster – a disaster in disarray in fact! The shadow cabinet look like a bunch of old freshers who have met for the first time – gasping at the wonder of it all! Is it remotely funny after labour have destroyed the economy for the shadow chancellor to be cracking gags about borrowing economic books!

        All may very well be true but have you seen their polling numbers? Chuck a red rosette on an utter twat and watch it slide to victory. If Labour are shite it makes fuck all difference, in fact, it may help as people think the Co-arselition are to blame for everything.

          Labour’s core vote will never change its ways, but nationally it’s too small and if Labour’s to win a GE it needs to look beyond its core vote and reach out to intelligent people, too. There’s no way it can do that with Ed at the wheel.

          • No. UKIP vote, a credible 1 million, is spread thinner thinner than the walls in a newbuild eco-flat.

            The only way they could possibly gain more than 1 or 2 MPs in the next 20 years is for the Tory party to fracture, as a sort of SDP.

            That would leave Labour in power, unchallenged, for about 15 years until NewUKIP and NewTory moved back to the center and Labour-The Next Generation had run out of money.

            If by “they” you mean the Tories, I’d say no. I think (assuming there were sufficient candidates) UKIP would obliterate the Tories and B&P would demolish Labour.

            @RRW(Mrs) – I hate Blue Labour with a passion, and Cameron is an abomination – he clearly hates people like me, so I hate him back tenfold. But then Mililong’s expressionless face appears in a picture and his words of wisdom vomit over the screen and.. he just can’t be allowed into Downing St. I’d be much happier if his brother had won (which, of course, he did, but..)

    I don’t believe Ed’s leadership would be harmed even by the losing of one of his ‘inner circle’ – and certainly not by the loss of a shadow cabinet member.

    The shadow cabinet are making very little impact in the news at present – perhaps part of a deliberate strategy as Ed himself is noticeably absent, even accepting ‘all’ he is is leader of the opposition.

    Ed’s leadership will (IMO) only come under real pressure in the short term if lose the forthcoming Old and Sad by-election. In the medium term, the level of public support for the Coalition program will determine Ed’s security. The more the general public are seen as buying into the Coalition’s plans, the less secure Ed’s position.
