Calamity Kenny Curses Caledonia

Regular readers will remember the adventures of Kenny Young, Ed Miliband’s “Press Office Manager”. After a series of calamities the emphasis in Labour circles is on the “office manager” part of the title. On bigotgate day, rumour has it that young Kenny’s contribution to the “how the hell are we going to spin this one chat?” was to suggest they say Gordon had said “bighearted”.

Since his promotion from Gordon’s Door-Opener in Chief , Kenny has wound up so many people in Team Miliband  that they dispatched him to Scotland a few weeks ago. Kenny is on load as pointman to Iain Gray, Scottish Labour’s dull and insipid leader, for the duration of the Scottish elections.

Sadly for Kenny though, Labour’s collapse in the polls up north began soon after his arrival, and yesterday The Sun switched its support to the SNP. Not because of Murdoch’s new-found love of William Wallace, but in order hit Miliband where it hurts – in the Labour heartland.

The Scottish Labour campaign has been as dreary and cack-handed as their leader, who is remarkably less human than Miliband. Even with the might of Kenny on board they have been unable to overcome the inexplicable charm of Salmond. It’s going to be an interesting dispatches from the front when Calamity Kenny ventures back south, if there’s even a job for him upon his return.

    Guido, I do wonder if this has anything to do with Edward Miliband asking for a public/full inquiry into phone hacking , Edward only spoke yeaterday about it, Looks like the love in with New/old labour is well and truly over.

    Ed Miliband is no Leader.

    O/T On a point of Order Guido Fawkes sir, Last Friday you published the weekly caption contest and as a note you said you would annouce previous winners on Monday, My question is this , what Monday?

    I am not a Nationalist but I hope SNP win. Many unionist & business people support the Nats as they have delivered on most of their promises and are a competent party in power.
    Murdoch knows the Nats will struggle for independence and this is the main reason he supports them. Unlike Labour the SNP support business and the disastrous Tram project may have swung Murdoch’s support from Labour to SNP. Anyhow, let’s hope Murdoch has backed the winner.

    That being the case he certainly has had an impact- I suspect not the one RedEd had in mind.

    OOPs the old Scotland votes Labour gag is about to be derailed big time…

    Its seems on current voting intentions the SNP are about to get a majority on the 5th May.

    Glasgow’s Labour Tammany Hall equivalent is already very glum and ‘doon in the mooth’ because if Labour (North British Branch) get the kicking it looks like they are heading for then they are ‘fir ra bit an thir jotters’ in 2012 and an end to the most corrupt council in Scotland.

    A council where its not who you know but what you put in plain brown envelops that counts when you want a contract ‘fae the cooncil’ or to open yet another pub or off license (rate when last disclosed is around £2,000 to the chair of the Glasgow City licensing committee for a drinks license).

    Labour the party with its back pocket at heart …

    Kenny’s latest gaff – organised a photograph opportunity for Elmer Fudd (aka Labour’s glove puppet in Scotland) and the Labour Perth North constituency candidate in the wrong constituency. …. yes not only is Labour’s moral compass completely duff they can not even use a Silva compass to tell the difference between North and South.

    In England we correct our mistakes, sadly in scotchland and whales, they find such behaviour impossible.

    Polly Toynbee and Harriet Harman still have jobs. When will they be jobless?

    I’m a Scot and have decided to vote SNP with the first vote and green with the second.

    In many ways, the SNP are like what Labour were many years ago. They believe in free education up to degree level. They want to end regressive taxes like the council tax and make it income based (progressive). The SNP believe in proportional representation even though the polls currently have them on 45% of the FPTP vote in a four party system etc.

    I like the SNP and am warming to the idea of independence. I’ve been working in Norway a lot recently when you compare their way of life to life in London I just can see no reason to part a country dominated by a city like that and the surrounding areas that is very different culturally to the way it is here.

    The Jonah Brown syndrome seems to have struck in the Scottish Elections, few days after Brown is asked (yes they had to ask him) to campaign in Fife, the new polls confirm the SNP are well ahead of Labour.In a subsequent poll for Labours Holyrood leader, it showed a possiblity that Grey would actually loose his seat!
    Labour’s answer to all this is to send up the twin Ed’s (Balls and Moribund) as well as Eddie Izzard. Somehow London based Labour just dont get the idea that Scots dont like being told by Englishmen how to vote

    I think you will find that the first Tay Bridge fell down because it was badly designed.

    The culprit was a certain Sir Thomas Bouch.

    He was ENGLISH!

    Socialism is going to gain ground under this Conservative government. The cuts are too deep, the unemployed too many. His policies are effectively biting into the profits of those that he represents. The banks go unchecked. We are heading for a double dip recession. It will lead to his downfall especially with that distasteful Clegg alongside him.
