Miliband’s Green Credentials

As his ball and chain marched, Miliband went to Birmingham for the relative comfort of the Local Government Association conference this afternoon. Before telling them that both the strikers and the government were wrong, Red Ed demanded his own private green room, kitted out with tea, coffee, biscuits and juice for his seven strong entourage. Guido’s LGA eyes and ears also chuckled at the security guard outside the room. When the Prime Minister went up to speak to the conference on Tuesday he shared a green room with the other speakers, as have all the other cabinet ministers who dropped by. Nothing’s too good for the workers.

UPDATE: Team Ed got in touch to argue Pickles was in the same room. Team Pickles say he only went in to watch Ed’s speech on the telly after he had vacated. Take it outside lads…

    Is Ed becoming a Diva in a power struggle within his own party?

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Hang on Guido, Did your eyes and ears tell you how long it took for Ed to decide what biscuits he wanted?

    And does he really need a secruity guard to guard his blank sheet of paper?

    Finally who picked up the bill?

    FT says:

    Ed’s a cock

    All lefties are cocks

    There is nothing Milliband actually does that is consistent with being a Socialist

    Faceless Bureaucrat says:

    What exactly IS Ed Miliband for?

    Even the comrades booed the mention of his name at today’s rally – so much for being bought and paid for by the Unions…

    Kenny Young (tosser). says:

    It was thought to be safer to keep The Dear Leader out of view of the general public. We thought it best to keep ‘The Ed Miliband fan-club’ out of public view too. Why? They would just take the piss out of us and Ed is feeling fragile at the moment just being wed.

    Time to worry is when he starts demanding that his room is decorated only in red, and has at least twelve bowls of Smarties with the blue ones taken out.

    It possibly wasn’t him who required the private room. When the Bruvvers want a quiet chat, they don’t want the waggling ears of the Press eavesdropping….

    Red Ed is a coward who just wants to sit on the fence.

  12. 12

    Elevating oneself, as if you were of a better class of person than the general riff-raff, is the surefire way to identify a modern socialist.

    Let’s face it, when did you ever see one behaving as Gandhi?

    Sorry Guido.

    But dont forget the time he/his advisors removed the first class seat covers when he done a interview for the news.

    Many years ago, I had a girlfriend who had a predilection for orange Smarties. I would buy five tubes and present her with all the orange ones. There was absolutely nothing that she would not do for me. It was a fine arrangement and one that app_ealed to my frugal instincts. No need for expensive meals or overpriced drinks. Happy days. Everyone deserves some luck at some point…

    There is nothing social about their yobbery. It is antisocial, and their ambition is to scrounge and sponge.

    Hypocrisy of the left strikes again says:

    Nothing surprises me anymore about the left. Probably the greatest irony in political history is that the leaders of the left live much more lavish lifestyles than even their conservative opponents. And yet millions of Labour voters still think the party gives a fuck about them even after 13 years of so-called socialist Labour ministers becoming property millionaires using a certain system called, what was it again, oh yes, capitalism.

    My heart bleeds for the millions who are suffering under this right wing government who have found a Final Solution for the poor. Hold on a second… Hey, Pablo, I need a top up of my Cristal. Chop chop. Anyway, as I was saying, I support my fellow socialists in rising up against the tyranny of this coalition. Oh, wait… Isabella, the balcony needs a clean. Hurry up. And get my car ready. I’m going to the beach later. Sorry, you just can’t get good help these days. I wish I could be with my comrades but I want them to know that I’m thinking of them here in Tuscany.

    I beg to differ. If one researches the behaviour of the Stalinistas of the late 1920’s and 30’s, Ed’s pathetic attempts at self agrandissment are entirely consistent with being a Socialist. Ed’s behaviour must have been learnt at his Father’s knee.

    Very quiet because when a predator stalks it’s prey it is best to remain hidden and silent. Marky words- he is watching from the undergrowth and silently laughing to himself as Millibland alienates one of the few groups who actually supported him.

    Balls much he rubbing his podgy hands with glee. No need for a coup as the leader is reaching for the Mess Webley.

    I’m not sure who I’d rather see as Liebour leader- Blinky or Millibland? Both provide endless hours of entertainment in their own carnivalof fuckwittery. That said, seeing Balls more often would push the old blood pressure a notch higher.

    Toodle pip chums.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
