Miliband Defines His View of Government

Given that Ed Miliband was educated by Oxford and Harvard’s finest, before spending years as a SpAd and then a minister at the heart of government, you would have thought that this was a given:

Life is, however, like a box of chocolates…

          David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

          This Marxist is finished, we now need to give Mc Clegg a little help to fook off. What does it say about him that he got married to win votes and pretend he is interested in family life. No emotional intelligence, hence no values, no morals no shame. This applies to all those in government and opposition at the moment. Radical change is required.


          • Fred West. says:

            A person pays the pizza company and expects Delivery of product that satisfies certain criteria. We elect politicians, pay taxes and shouldn’t we expect delivery of what they promised? Governement is exactly like having to deliver pizza. Only Ed hasn’t got the brains to see that principal is the same, he’s confusing it with scale.

            He is obviously deluded enough to think that if it worked for Brown, it can work for him.


          • Spank Sinatra says:

            That fuckwit couldn’t work out how many different cheeses to put on a ‘four cheese / quattro stagione’ let alone make his way to the correct address with the correct pizza, ask for the correct amount and give the correct change (if required). Long may he continue in his current position.

    He needs to spend a few years on an oil rig or deep sea fishing now to get any credibility.

      geoff says:

      You can see that we will look back on the election of Ed as a defining moment when Labour under the power and pay of the unions, retreated into comfort territory, far to the left of Mondeo man or whatever the BBC calls the centrist floating voter these days.

      To be PM you need to take the country with you, not just please your core vote. That’s how the AV vote was lost, Eddie Izzard telling Tony Robinson that AV is a good idea – to applause from the Guardian.

      Question is, will they dump Ed before the election?


      • 67
        Archer Karcher says:

        Didn’t the people behind AV and the luvvie left, all complain in their usual conceited and arrogant way, that AV lost because the British people were too stupid to understand it?

      Or even delivering pizza


      • 82
        Archer Karcher says:

        Miliband left the British taxpayer with one hell of an expensive Climate Change pizza. It’s virtually inedible and at cost of £720 billion, the worst value for money delivery ever left at our doors.

          Major Eyeswater says:

          I think most in SW1 are underestimating the impact on manufacturing of the looming introduction of a carbon floor price. You have reminded me that the only good thing to be said of this ludicrous act of self-flagellation is that it’s got Limited Ed’s damp and slimy dabs all over it…

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Can someone sit these fuckin politicons down and teach them some history please?

    Every socailist goverment runs out of ther peoples money (Take note Dave), It steals the freedom of the citizens Regulates thier speech and thoughts, Steals their wages and shits on them from thier ivory tower.

    It has also been responsable for over 150 million deaths Yet everytime they come back they say “just give us another chance, This time it will work and we will get it right”.

    Goverment is meant to represent the voters and serve them, Not enslave them.

      No. As a commercial enterprise, Dominos has to make money. It can’t afford to pay its staff to sit around listening to Adenoid Boy spout complete crap.

        …and watch him wave his arms about like a bloody windmill. More coaching I suppose? Won’t make any difference – he’s on borrowed time as it is.


  9. 16
    geoff says:

    I feel sorry for Ed really. He was born to be a politician. Sitting at the feet of Tony Benn as the left wing academics discussed how to bring down the country and install their workers paradise. Child abuse in a way and you can see how he turned out. Never done a days work, a strong sense of entitlement, doesn’t mind tax avoidance. A classic millionaire socialist aka Toynbee etc. I sort of wish he’d break his programming and just go off and do something. Run a cafe, be a school teacher. Come back to politics when he’s met someone outside Primrose Hill who isn’t a Marxist.

      Steve Miliband says:

      Sell Volvo’s. ” Yes Sir. It’s a very progressive car. Lots of investment gone into this car. You can even get a special finance deal, called PFI whereby we build and own the car and you pay an extortiant monthly fee to use it. After 25 years we still own it.”


  10. 17
    Engineer says:

    There’s a story told about David Lloyd George. He was driving through a remote part of the Welsh countryside one day, completely lost. Spying a old man tending a hedge, he stopped, wound down the window and asked, “Where am I?” The old Welshman pondered for a moment before replying, “In a car.”

    Lloyd George was later, on recounting this incident, heard to say, “The perfect politician’s answer. Absolutely accurate, and told you nothing you didn’t already know.”

    That’s RedEd that is. “Government is not like delivering pizza.” Absolutely accurate, and tells us nothing we didn’t already know.


    • 31
      Wear the Fox Hat says:

      Engineer, your story is apocryphal. Lloyd George saw a sheep, not an old man, and he got out of the motor and shagged it.

      And the sheep gave birth to Harold Wilson.


      • 39
        nell says:

        Are you sure that wasn’t kinnochio the sheep gave birth to?


      • 138
        Airey Belvoir says:

        In fact Lloyd George saw a man in a field hanging out of the back of a sheep and, not quite believing his eyes asked “Are you shearing that sheep?” Back came the
        indignant reply; “No I’m not boy, find your bloody own.”


    • 32
      Barry says:

      The rest of the story as told to me in Wales was:
      Lloyd George said, ‘I know that, you are an idiot’
      to which the old man said,
      ‘I may be an idiot, but I know where I am and you do not’.


      • 40
        PD77 says:

        You forgot to add the occasional “Boyo” in there as well plus did Lloyd George ask in English first and get ignored?


        • 48
          Anonymous says:

          Well considering Lloyd George was Welsh…….but you knew that didn’t you ?


          • PD77 says:

            I certainly did ;), he was played by Anthony Hopkins (who’s also Welsh) in a motion picture chronicling the life of the young Winston Churchill, coincidentally entitled Young Winston, and in that he was given a Welsh accent.


        • 63
          Tessa Tickles says:

          Years ago on holiday I had to meet a friend at the bus station in Swansea. I asked a man in his 50s for directions and he responded in Welsh. When I apologised and said I didn’t speak Welsh, he responded in Welsh, again.

          What were the odds on me trying to get directions from the one-and-only Welshman who doesn’t speak English?


          • Engineer says:

            You were pretty unlucky to find anyone in Swansea that could speak Welsh. Most of ‘em can’t in that part of Wales. The Welsh-speaking heartlands are mostly in the North and West.


          • bergen says:

            Never met a monglot Welsh speaker in Swansea.The way to deal with his sort is then to stand behind him and yell “mind your head”(and watch him duck…)


          • Wear the Fox Hat says:

            You need to use your imagination. You should have told him you were Barry John and suffering from amnesia. Then start humming Sospan Bach.


          • Mike Hunt says:

            Welshman who doesn’t speak English?

            I think you mean wouldn’t speak English.


      • 65

        Thanks, Barry. I hadn’t heard that bit before – nice one.

    I’ve never heard of a pizza delivery business that’s not wedded to the profit motive.

    RedEd appears to think that ‘society’ should operate as a burden on every wealth producing part of the economy.

    PD77 says:

    Red Ed is definitely the Son of El Gordo, if the Titanic had as many relaunches it would never have sank.

    Red Eds next speech will be something like this:”The fight back for Labour against the Tory led coalition starts now, now, now, now, now and now, now…… (repeat ad infinitum).”


    • 38
      Whoever writes your material needs sacking says:

      Not sure about that Titanic analogy, are you saying that it’s sinking was a good thing and that doing something to prevent it sinking is somehow a bad thing ?


      • 47
        PD77 says:

        Not that I agree with the way it happened but the sinking of the Titanic did bring passenger safety to the front, but if it had been relaunched as many times as Labour it would have never seen the end of the harbour where it was moored never mind the iceberg.

    Red tribe, Blue tribe – same direction same policies.

    Ed or Dave? No difference what so ever to the British electorate:

    * Same big state advocates

    * Same high taxes

    * Same subservience to the undemocratic EU

    * Same immigration policies – though the Tories are now letting in ,ore than Labour

    * Same spend, spend, spend on foreigners whilst our own suffer.

    Do the country & the unborn British taxpayers to come a favour – vote UKIP.

    2 Does he know something we don’t (unlikely)
    3 Future for Britain?
    4 The End of the World is Nigh

    It’s certainly different today then what it was a year ago and no doubt will be different each day from now on just to save the Libs!

    There is only one difference now between Brown and Cameron and that is the rate of spending slows down a little. That’s it!
