Dark News for Ed

Now Saif Gaddafi is beyond his help, Mandy has turned back to domestic affairs to dispense advice. And it’s not good news for Ed.

Pitching his stall behind the pay wall over at The Times, the Dark Lord declares that there isn’t much that Labour can do about the riots, given how recently they were in power. Instead of working out a strategy around this, Mandy instead dissects the problems barring the coalition from being a “joined up government”. Looking at the inter, and internal, party problems. Many in Labour will be upset that he looks to be offering the government, not Ed, help to get out of their problems:

“The coalition’s programme will hardly be advanced if every time a Tory minister floats ideas of reform it draws an indignant riposte from a Lib Dem colleague who feels left out of the discussion.

Since May, Mr Clegg has succeeded in looking less meek and hard done-by. He has found a stronger voice and has benefited from this. But if he and his colleagues forget their collective responsibility to make the coalition work, and that government by hissy fit is not the way to make good policy, they will be as much the losers as everyone else.”

Telling Team Ed that they can do nothing but attack cracks in the government is just what the Labour leader needs in the run up to increasingly difficult looking conference…

    So the Dark Lord is telling everyone what they already know, the Labour Party have but one policy – criticise everything the Government do.

    Wow.

            Mandle turd is still getting thousands each month from the EU gravy train having served there for about two years- job found for him by Blair after he was forced to resign for his substandard behaviour, therefore not fit to have the job offered to him.

            We the taxpayer need substantial EU cuts or need to get out of EU ASAP. At £17 billion a year we can not afford their stupid economics or the greed of a few MEPs and Eurocrats like Mandleson. Eu countries will trade with us if we have the products they want at a price they can afford whether in or outside Europe.

            If he was a real socialist then he wouldn’t have instructed Bliar to revoke clause IV (i.e. state ownership of the means of production of the key sectors).

            The reason he did this was to signal to us Trotskyite, Libertarian, free-marketeers (aka neocons) that old (socialist) labour was dead and that new labour were as anti-statist as the tories. This certainly got the attention of the boys in the City and my boys on Wall Street.

            He then told Tony to do away with financial regulation and push for mass immigration (remember more immigrants = more consumers, which is good for business).

            So in summary:

            STEP 1 – Destroy socialism in the UK – Check
            STEP 2 – Deregulate capitalism – Check
            STEP 3 – Encourage mass immigration – Check

            We know who our friends are and they get looked after when times need.

            Oh, and don’t worry about Ed, we’re lining him up just nicely. Remember, we back all the horses in the rigged race of govt. We never lose.

        I wonder how much influence these lot have on IMPORTED Gas prices from Russia, or OIL from the Middle East. That would be a great way to make a lot of Quick Money?
        Considering that Oil when trading at $147 a barrel we paid £1.40 per litre
        and Oil is now trading internationally at $85 a barrel and we pay £1.35 litre
        Natural Gas traded internationally in 2008 at $12.5 mbtu and in 2011 trading at $3.9, so it would be interesting to find out who has got their whiskers covered in Cream. Ah and the BOMB TAX

        “A non-doer is very often a critic — that is, someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It’s easy to be a critic; but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change.”

        Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

        It’s easy to criticise the Government CSC, but to have no alternative in the form of policies (too far too fast is a soundbite, not a policy) is only doing half the job as the opposition. Perhaps they should only take half their pay?

How about the cubbly Mao and his 20 to 43 million famine victims. Yep socialism works just fine – it is great at ‘scientifically’ re tructuring society by means of deliberate mega death policies

      Socialism DID work in war time. Rich or poor, everyone got the same rations. You grew your own. You worked in any way you could. We needed an NHS to deal with the sick and injured returning soldiers, and those at home. And we needed social security that recognised all of society’s contributions to the war effort, and their sacrifice. No point trying to tell Hitler’s V1 bombs that your country house is quite nice, could you please direct your fire at the chavs. We were “all in it together”

      However, once the recovery was complete – this should have ended. There was no longer a need for it. People were back on their feet and as such should have been looking to look after themselves again. Unfortunately, the system endured. So, you had people thinking they were worthy of the same benefit when all they really needed was a slap in the face and a visit to the job center.
