Red Ed Should Learn To Never Say Never

Ed Miliband asked the audience to be the judge on how he is doing so far when he appeared on Boulton & Co this lunchtime. With classic sound-bites such as “I can’t make a promise no, because I’m not going to make … I’m not going to make a promise I can’t keep… I’m not, I’m not going to make promises now four and a half years beyond election…” it wasn’t a great pitch. Prezza-lite articulation aside, it seems Ed has dug himself into a hole.

Boulton pushed him on whether Labour would use their proposed extended bank levy to reverse Child Benefit:

“Yeah sure.  I, I mean I, we’ve, we’ve never said, look we’ve never said that we would use the bankers’ levy for that”

Oh really Ed… Are you sure?

Let’s rewind five months to The Politics Show on the 10th October last year:

“If we can get more for example from the banks in a higher bank levy, to protect ordinary families, like on Child Benefit… we should do so.”

The video evidence is here. Saying “we’ve never said” over and over again won’t make it true Ed.

    You’re awfully frightened of what the Eds are going to do aren’t you? Just picking up on little discrepancies might make you feel better. Like whistling in the dark. You knownin your heart that the chances of a majority Tory govt recede daily ( if dave couldn’t manage it against hopeless Gordy under the circumstances then what chance up against miliband?). It’s goodbye Tory time. And sooner than most of your posters think when the perfidious Libdems get to work. There’s no doubt camerons only chance is to go to the country early and soon or face being wiped out by miliband and whoever succeeds cleggy.

  22. 22

    You must be a genuine labour supporter. The ability to take the data and then draw a 100% incorrect conclusion is in your DNA.

    * IF the Tories were fearful of Miliband why would they hold an election now? For what gain? None of the ‘other side of the cuts’ electoral bribery spending would have come through.

    and
    *IF they fear the perfidious Libdems would seek to split the coalition then they would be annihilated, as you, and they , well know.
    So they can’t, even if they wanted to.

    Red Ed? Oh how I wish. The reality is that Ed Miliband is fast becoming a political liability and arguably one of the worst moves the party has ever made. If trends continue, the government will give the next election to Labour on a plate …. and Ed Miliband will lose it.

    A real tragedy for those of us who believe in Labour values.

    Labourunionsbbc we are one says:

    To be honest I am shit scared of Ed balls and his tea boy along with the unions and all the other vicious, nasty, petty minded cun’ts in the liebore party getting back in power. We just managed to scrape by without the unbeliveable nightmare of our entire lives being shared between the state and global coporations with the inposition of the identity (chip) card. Which in Lord Of the Rings Terms would have been the ‘One ring to bring us all togeather and in the darkness bind us’. Quite apart from any thing else.

    So yes, I’m scared, but not for the reasons your likely to be thinking, because if Herr balls and that lot get back in it will be curtains for England this time for sure.

    Ed Balls statement.

    ” ..and we are in no way being populist when we say that this money..this tax that we will extract from the evil,evil,horridy bankers, will be used to pay for a wide range of essential projects.

    For example this £2 billion will allow.. Commissioning a second series of Downton Abbey. The funding of Radio 6 and Asian network. Some more bandwidth for Mumsnet. A little squeaky bone for your dog, or a tingly ball if you like cats. An App that means someone will phone in sick for you.
    A parking ticket valid for 3hrs. John Lewis vouchers if you live in Southern England, or Morrisons for the regionals.

    This £5 billion of money will also be used for big projects like high speed vaccum tubes from Penzance to Fort William. And a hospital in every village. We will use this tax money to fund a Space program. A cure for cancer {Gordon already announced that at the last election..but no harm to repeat it.} A giant pyramid will give jobs to construction workers in marginal seats. Warp drive technology.

    I pledge you this £350 billion we will have raised will reshape Britain for the 25th century!

    Selling off our gold reserves
    Raiding private pensions
    Smearing train crash survivors
    Dodgy dossiers
    Sucking Bush’s cock
    Fraudulent postal votes
    Borrowing till the economy imploded
    Letting the banks run riot
    Knighting Fred the Shred
    Losing millions of people’s personal data
    Cash for peerages
    Dodgy donations from the M*ttals, H*ndujas, E*clestone
    Helping get Megarhi released
    Cosying up to Gaddafi

    Socialism is all about Big Government, totalitarianism, power, greed, central planning, redistribution of wealth, restrictions on personal freedom, no ownership of personal property, no self determination, government entitlements, no secret ballot elections, lack of incentive to succeed, government watchdogs, political elitism, government control and intervention, sameness, tyranny, violence, intimidation, coercion, pressure and social engineering are all characteristics of Socialism.

    History is replete with socialist regimes, like Nazi Germany and socialist Russia, which have imploded and failed – just look at the recent ‘antics’ of Labour within the UK leading to an almost complete social and economic meltdown. Yet here we are just a few months later being asked to trust them again!

    Dear Bill Quango,

    You forgot about the new magic wands to be issued from government stores in the near future, they are being developed by the finest brains in science, scientists like Gore and Mann and Beddington in association with the met office and the UEA-CRU and they only need a trillion pounds to bring the magic wand into full scale production by the year 2135.

    Its the bargain of a lifetime, obviously taxes will have to rise by 100% to pay for the investment but a trillion is so little to pay for such a wonderful invention, the magic wand could also create one thousand million green sustainable jobs, perhaps even two hundred thousand million jobs when production is in full swing.

    The government is wonderful and does wonderful things, it thinks of you every day and only wants to make you happy and the plans for the new magic wand proves it!

    IQ of a voter says:

    Most politicians have undergone a life in preparation for their career. From school to university, where they read political degrees, to minor roles as party interns, and on to MPs staff leading to becoming a spad or press manipulator, eventually reaching the stage where they apply to constituency panels for selection as a prospective party candidate. The best of these get chosen to stand in an election on a no hope ticket, but a good campaign can lead to being parachuted in to a safe seat. The back benches and on to ministerial power.
    My question is, why when they rise to the top, are they so crap at the job?

    The question was why is light affected by gravity when it has no mass. I to was astonished that they didn’t have the answer. As I understand it it is not so much light or even falling bodies which are affected but rather the space in which the light/ bodies are moving is distorted by gravity. In lights case this appears to show it being bent , so it’s got nothing to do with whether Light has a mass or not.

    That’s why everything falls at the same rate in a gravitational field since the mass of the objects are irrelevant.

    Gallileo showed this and Einstein explained this in his theory of Gravity which is as we have said due to the distortion of the fabric of space itself in a gravitational field.

    It is in my opinion p–s taking of the most cynical kind,when is this country going to wake up to 13 years of Liebours building up of the client state and their multicultural bo–ocks,which opinion now suggests does’nt work,and I say no shit Sherlock most of the country has known this for years.
    We need major changes in this country to start to sort things out,Liebour are a no mark party controlled by the union wreckers,the Lib Dumbs are as they have always been a back to nature joke,the Cons frankly are between a rock and a hard place,they cannot push the policies that are really required and are at a halfway house.
    Ukip/B/Pee they will never get voted into power so where will we go,who knows I certainly don’t but as seen in recent events were dynasties are crapping themselves because of people power/instant communications which they cannot control like they have done via the MSM in the past,I suspect as things get more and more tight in this country we might see a different scenario unfolding.

    Stick to your guns girl,sorry Ms you will have my full support and if some of these wishy/washy arseholes want to take me on feel free.
    You don’t know who I am or what my expertise is but be very careful what you say because I might be in a position to sink you without trace.

    The Beboids are out there to plant the seeds of socialism so that a new Japan can rise up and be reborn as a multi cultoral society living in enviromental harmony. It really could be a beautiful thing, no more dirty stinking nuclear power stations and big dirty factories spewing out deadly filth. No more whale hunting and terrible tv game shows. The LGBT community could flourish in the newly rebuilt fishing towns where large public lavatories would be constructed to support a very active cottaging community. Japan could become a beacon of hope for third would economic refugees and scroungers who would be offered free housing and indifinate welfare payments. This really could herald a new beginning.

    Your analysis is spot on…….thousands will vote Labour at local elections and the election in 2015 because effectively they don’t like to be told the truth that the country is bust courtesy of the two Ed’s mentor…Brown…and whilst they may grudgingly accept that cuts are necessary not cuts to thier lifestyle,benefits or any that affect them personally and believe the clap trap being peddled by Labour and their supporters in the media that all you have tp do is tax the Bankers into oblivion (which will just result in major profitable banks such as HSBC re-locating to somewhere like China with resultant loss of tax revenues.jobs etc etc.)and all will be solved…it won’t.There is a big structural problem with the British economy and society which goes deeper than financial services sector. We simply don’t manufacture enough;we import too much and we have a core of unemployable badly educated people and a growing number of young 16-24 unemployed some of who are graduates whilst we allocate those jobs that we do have to people from within and outside the EU

    The plain fact is that if Labour had won the election they would have been cutting to the same level.Even if they started out not wanting to the markets would force them to do it as we have seen in many other countries.

    The media such as BBC is not being straight with people but whats new.It’s not only economic news they filter unfortunately…………..

    The thing that tickled me was the complete and utter absence of ego, of bullshit, of trying to cobble together a definitive answer when they were engaging in speculation. These lads & lasses are undeniably at the top of their game, and that game requires serious dilligence and through that they were perfectly happy saying ‘we don’t really know kid’. If dumb bastards like Ed Milliband (or, to be fair, any of the stupid fucks who claim to govern us) had any semblance of that level of personal respect then we’d hear that answer much more often.

    A Conservative-controlled council tonight voted to spend millions of pounds of public money evicting travellers from an unauthorised site.

    Officials estimate that evicting more than 400 travellers from the former scrapyard near Basildon, Essex, could cost taxpayers £18 million.

    Conservatives on Basildon Council insisted that planning laws had to be upheld and gave the green light despite opposition from Guido Fawkes and his right wing political blogging cronies.

    This producer sounds like a good lad….

    “Producer Brian True-May said the location “wouldn’t work” if there was any racial diversity depicted in what he described as “the last bastion of Englishness” in the Midsomer villages.
    His comments sparked anger from the director of the UK’s leading race equality think tank, the Runnymede Trust, who branded his views unfair and exclusionary.
    “Maybe I’m not politically correct,” Mr True-May told the Radio Times. “We just don’t have ethnic minorities involved. It wouldn’t be the English village with them. It just wouldn’t work.”
    He added: “Suddenly we might be in Slough. Ironically, Causton [a town in the show] is supposed to be Slough. And if you went into Slough you wouldn’t see a white face there. We’re the last bastion of Englishness and I want to keep it that way.”

    Watching Brian Cox on ‘Something for the Weekend’ I was very heartened to hear him say that nothing in science is correct and the purpose of science is to disprove everything. IF something cannot be falsified, it is considered to be true, for now, but to be scientifically valid, it must be falsifiable. He also clarified his take on the “global warming” situation, stating that there are a wide range of opinion and although the overwhelming scientific evidence is that CO2 is a greenhouse gas and that increasing that gas in the atmosphere will warm the planet, currently models vary and the effect in our atmosphere according to some people is mild and not a problem, whereas other’s think it will be catastrophic.

    Labour have no idea how lucky they are. All they have to do is remove all traces of Blair/Brown in their shadow cabinet, find a presentable leader and they’ll waltz back in at the next election due to the useless and disliked Clegg/Cameron.

    The electorate will forget everything that transpired ’97-’10.

    Milipede is a perfect example of the modern career party apparatchik – an androidal, tribal narrowcaster with little experience and even less principle. To whit, a parasite of feeble mediocrity, battened fast upon the breast of a discredited, cretinous ideology.

    As the Sky News exchange shows, the thick-tongued, sibling-stabbing, goggle-eyed arsewiper is also an inarticulate, spunk-gargling fuck-trumpet who couldn’t speak clearly even if the opportunity to do so was wedged so high up his sphincter that the sign saying “Now Speak Clearly” was jammed against his hard palate.

    What, Labour cutting too fast and too deep and putting our economy at risk. Never!

    Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito says:

    Government is that great fiction, through which everybody endeavours to live at the expense of everybody else. Frédéric Bastiat

    “The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable…” H.L. Mencken (Prejudices: Third Series)

    These quotes that sum up the the price of (something) is external vigilance. If you do not keep scrutinising the government they will walk all over you. For example £5 000 a question meant the previous government had to be got rid of and they were replaced by Tony Bliar whose government was whiter than white because he said it would be and the press took himat his word and we were rewarded with (see Guido passim) Ellioit Morley, dudes that have been imprisoned and dudes and dudettes that should have been.

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.”
