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…

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

        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?

        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.

    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.

      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.
