Macintyre and Hasan Hit Ed Where It Hurts

Mehdi Hasan went into damage control mode over at the Guardian this morning, with a long piece that essentially boils down to “please don’t blame my book for Ed’s nosedive in the polls”. He goes on to offer helpful advice about how the struggling Leader of the Opposition might be able to up his game. But it’s a bit late to be trying to curry favour again. 

Miliband’s office deny suggestions that Shadow Cabinet members were told by Tom Baldwin not to attend the book launch on Tuesday. Guido’s sources denied any edict went out either on or off the record. Neil Kinnock pulling out as the speaker at the last moment was unfortunate. Could it be that the former unsuccessful leader of the Labour Party didn’t want to be seen to be endorsing the book about the so far unsuccessful current leader of the Labour party? Seems ungrateful since he got his party back.

Ban or no ban, it’s clear Team Ed are rather angry with their former cheerleaders-in-chief. And they have good cause to be. Take a look at the ICM/Guardian net approval ratings before and after the Mail on Sunday serialisation of the book. The latest Ipsos-Mori data confirms the ICM findings:

The book led the storm of bad publicity for Miliband in the weeks that saw the six point approval-rating drop. Despite what Hasan argues in his piece, the evidence is to the contrary.

      Mehdi Hasan on Monday told that chubby Oirish chap Eamonn Holmes on Sky News that he thought the best man (Ed) had won, as he wanted to be leader more than his brother did.

        He may have wanted to be leader more, but he doesn’t know what to do now that he is leader. A bit like Jonah.

        Still, ferrets in a sack and all of that. It’s an enjoyable spectacle. I’m more worried about the lack of proper Tories in Westminster and Whitehall.

        How did he have time to write a book, be a politician and in charge of the Labour Party? I can’t bring myself to use the word leader as it does not apply to all three main stream parties at the moment. If he spent more time as a politician perhaps he would do better and serve his constituents better.

      Engineer says:

      Never mind, Ed. I’ve got a killer question for you for next week’s PMQs. It’s following in your new attack lines of asking questions so detailed and narrow that the PM will be utterly adrift with his lack of knowledge of the detail. Here it is:

      “Mrs Scroggins of 34, Acacia Avenue, Bognor had to wait nearly six hours last week for the Fire Brigade to come and rescue her cat from next door’s tree. Does the Prime Minister agree that such waiting times, the direct result of swinging Tory cuts, are utterly unacceptable to the nation’s feline population?”

      You’ll have him completely floundering and wrong-footed with that one.

        EC1 PhD says:

        Ed’s first question for next week’s PMQs:

        “Mr Speaker, in the Government’s current legislatative programme there is a clause which the Prime Minister is all too aware of because he has argued consistently for its inclusion in this house and at times even his back benchers have been at pains to dismiss as insufficiently representative of vested interests outside the Westminster village. Its inclusion and the subsequent U-turn to come will expose the Prime Minister to further ridicule. Therefore, Mr Speaker, I demand that the Prime Minister apologise for his lack of understanding of his own legislative programme while the evident splits in his cabinet have clearly made his own position untenable and I demand a general election immediately. He knows it! I know it! We all know it! Time for him to GO!”

        “Order Order the leader of the opposition will calm down and put his first qustion to the Prime Minister”

        • 117
          David Laws Lib Dem fiddler says:

          The question ought to be: When will the Tory Party start acting like Tories?

          Followed by: The voters thought they got rid of Liebour and are becoming tired that the House of Corruption continues running the country with socialist policies. Any chance of a blue leader? Even an attempt at winning the centre ground would be a start.

        Before I fell asleep drooling

        last night there was some sort of American
        Medieval swords and sandals epic that
        reminded me of Balls. The story consisted
        of a cruel aspirant King betraying and plotting against his
        opponents, one of whom was a little dwarfy type chap
        who I think was also a King. They all wanted to lay
        claim to a dodgy throne. See what I mean.

          May we say how glad we are that we swung public opinion so far in your favour that you were allowed to ignore parliamentary business and spend your time as prime minister strutting the world stage. Yee Ha! Of course your strategy of allowing chancellor McMental to spend the entire next 30 year’s tax returns on his projects, not to mention selling half of Britain’s gold reserves, built up over a very long time, has worked out spectacularly well. Of course once Gordon became prime minister he screwed it all up but how could we have predicted that?

          Anyway when you’re back in the UK how’s about an interview?

      It is about a politician who, via a series of murders and underhand means, plots his way to the leadership of his party and eventually becomes prime minister. It’s really rather good.

      Of course, you do your politics on the record and you’d never use amoral methods to advance your career but I’d still recommend watching it.

      The fact that a two faced creep like Hasan is still a darling of the Labour meeja tells one everything one needs to know about them, and their tolerance of intolerant bigotry from minorities. Hasan’s ‘unbelievers are people of no intelligence’, and his other dark age religious utterances would have had him ousted from politics and the limelight, had the ‘true faith’ been Chrisitanity and the ‘kufar’ members of the religion of peace and tolerance. He would have been unceremoniously ejected from the intelligentsia’s big brother house and boycotted, yet they all pretend his taped pronouncements were never uttered. Gits.

    Learn the Brown lessons, my child.

    1. Make claims that can’t be easily disproved. “Ed Miliband, once he’s out of the media glare, is a real laugh. In private he’s the life and soul of a party.”

    2. Double claim. Count your good works at least twice in each briefing. “I ended boom, and boom and bust.”

    3. Claim improbable things, that might be true, but journo’s aren’t going to be bothered to check. “Yvette Cooper invented the cat flap.”

    4. Make sure you are associated with the top media people of the day. Like Brown did with Obama and Jade Goody and Susan Boyle. Ed Miliband could get to know Sue Barker. Or appear on Dr Who as an alien.

    5. Write, or have ghostwritten, a book about something worthy that you can then be associated with.. Like Courage.
    “Ed Miliband’s guide to tetris?” Or combine the ghostwriting with an actual ghost story. “Scarey Tales. Ed Miliband examines the frightening lack of pension provision in Britain.”
    Or “Jasper: The friendly diversity ghost!” and he’s a black ghost. Could be a kid’s cartoon series featuring Lee Jasper.

    Hope this helps.

    At a train station once I saw a chav teenage boy who said to a headscarf wearing muslim woman as she walked past “Go home, muslim, go home.”

    And they say teenage chavs are all badly behaved.

      Is that the one where he goes back to 2001 and convinces the UK to join the Euro?

      Brussels will never take no for an answer. Even if they need to invent a time machine they’ll get the ‘correct’ answer one day.

    This is the original story Guido ran on him in 2009. It attracted 660 comments with not a Billy Bowden in sight, and no fucking thumbs. Ahh, those were the days.

    even if the book had been good about ed it would have made little difference to his poll rating which must rank amongst the worst since michael foot and the kinnocio pillock

    If you are associated with Mehdi Hassan that will surely lead to a nosedive in your popualrity. Will you please all stop having a go at poor Ed Milliband it is just plain wrong to mock the afflicted. :-)

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
