Khan Puts His Foot In It

Dermot Murnaghan pushed a favourite question on his Sky News show yesterday morning. He forced Sadiq Khan down the awkward “is Miliband Michael Foot?” avenue. As you can see the Shadow Justice secretary’s answer was a full, frank and rousing defence of his leader:

“Look at the two most recent opposition leaders who have gone on to become Prime Ministers, Tony Blair brilliantly done, became leader in 1994, a number of years, 15 years after we had been kicked out of power.  David Cameron himself became leader of the Conservatives in 2005, eight years after they…”

No wonder the one time confidant and campaign manager is now considered a liability by Ed’s team…

    No. Miliband is not as good as Foot. Both are intellectually somewhat deluded, but at least Foot was a brilliant orator. Miliband isn’t.

            True, but then read Russell Davies in the Grauniad today, spitting feathers because the Government has frozen the TV tax. Apparently this causes a 20% cut in programme budgets. (You’d have to ask Russell to explain the maths on that one; a glitch in the temporal matrix, perhaps).

            Now Russ has left Dr Who (with its incomprehensible plots, wooden acting, MDF dialogue and achingly right-on eco-messages) to work on Torchwood (with its garage-style sets and Cardiff butties saving the universe).

    The daily attacks on Milliband are not sticking, and will not stick. The biggest liability in politics today is Cameron, he has lost his sheen already. His over confident flippant manner is not very endearing, and he is proving to be quite a nasty piece of work. Tory HQ warned Shale he was about to become the fall guy in a nasty Tory leak – 24 hours later he’s lying dead on the bog.

      Interesting thought ! He was a particularly poor excuse for a human, with his third rate attempts at humerous blogging, so he could have reverted to type with the plain nasty mk stuff. Didn’t he stand aside as an mp , to spend more time with labourlost , or his local postal voter registration group ?

      “The BBC has been accused of being ‘a cheerleader for assisted suicide’ by filming 71-year-old British millionaire Peter Smedley killing himself for the controversial programme hosted by Terry Pratchett.

      The broadcast, ‘Choosing To Die’, been condemned by campaigners, politicians, medical professionals and religious leaders.”

      Well they are fully supportive of Agenda 21 and the global environmental fascism which demands a global genocide to bring global human population down to between 100 and 500 Million people, thus getting rid of between 6.1 and 6.6 BILLION people.

      Sorry to invoke G.Odwin’s Law, but that is one thousand times more dead than the old National Socialist from the 1930s-1940s Germany managed.

      What are we doing to tackle an evil with 1000 times the cruel and malevolent intent of that of those from Germany’s leadership circa 1933 – 1945?

        If you are going to use examples from history, Stalin killed 3 times as many people as Hitler, Mao an unknown number but reckoned in the 10’s of millions, and of course there are the Killing Fields of Cambodia to be used as an example. I’m not belittling Hitler’s attempts at extirmination, just pointing out that mainstream socialism has been more successful than National Socialism in this area.

    Wen Jiabo said he and Cameron exchanged views on democracy. I imagine it went like this:

    Cameron: Any chance you can give your people free speech and to stop hanging dissidents?

    Wen: Fuck you.

    Cameron: Okey dokey. We’re having sweet and sour pork for dinner tonight. Hope that suits you.

Before Miliband spoke, a school choir sang ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay. The first verse of which goes like this:

“When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
