        Yes. That’s the one. Tony Blair was 10 points or more ahead in the polls back in 1997. Every PMQ he was kicking the pants out of Major. But he wasn’t stupid enough to risk all that on a ‘Winner Gets All’ TV debate. You’re home free. You can only lose from here. Major was the one calling for the TV debate. Brown was the one calling for the TV debate. Did it not occur to him what could go wrong?

        Cameron on the other hand was/is that stupid.

        The rest, as they say, is history.

          Its worse though…….Not only did “Dave” agree to allow Clegg to take part in the Prime Ministerial debates when everyone knew/knows that Clegg would never have won an overall majority but he then allowed Clegg to out-bullshit him in the first debate and was the unable to subsequently claw back Clegg’s lead in the polls to a sufficient level to gain an overall majority…that decision cost the Tories at least 10 seats

      Was it because foolish Dave said “We need to make cuts?”
      Nobody liked hearing that.

      Of course what he should have done was to say the same words, only in Brown’s language.

      “We need to invest in the future jobs for young-people’s nurses and hospitals cuddly bunny hardworkingfamilies fund. Have another £500 on your tax credits..Go on, all of you..you deserve it..it started in America..let them worry about it. Am I right Mr Papandreou ? Course I am!”

    Things move too fast these days for Conservatism. The problem is what are the conservatives trying to conserve. By the time they have decided things have changed and what they wanted to conserve isn’t there any more. Conservatism isn’t quick enough or dynamic enough to conserve much more than their name. Perhaps it’s the name and its history that need to be looked at.

    I would have liked to conserve England as it was when I grew up. Then the population of London was as near to being 100% English as makes no difference. Now one third of the population of London wasn’t even born in the UK. So what’s to conserve if the change is happening at a faster rate than you can tie down what it is you are trying to conserve?

    Time to think quickly about things before they change and come up with a fit for purpose objective that will last more than a few minutes.

        Equally valid argument can be made about Labour. (J. Daley in the Crappygraph posted something to this effect, but I have thought this for years.) Labour’s vote comprises people who don’t work or who work for the state, which is tantamount to the same thing. The remnants of the working class have become aspirational and will vote Tory like as not, if they bother to vote at all.

        The old division between labour and capital has become blurred, mainly because of state intervention, so neither of the main parties stands for the people it’s supposed to stand for. As for the Limp Dumbs, they’re just as much a joke as UKIP. In fact Conservatives and Labour are completely interchangeable, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, incompetent, impotent arseholes who fiddle around at the edges of what’s left after the European Commission has told them what to do.

        What we’ll need when the euro collapses is a dictatorship, with me in charge.

        Yes, that’ll do it. I’m warming to the idea.

      Stop reading ‘The Daily Mail’. It is designed to make your blood pressure blow a gasket. Just as the Gruanaid or Mirror is designed to make the bedwetters blow their tubes.

          Sorry Bowden. It’s The Mail. I only read it once in the last twenty odd years – at my wife’s bestest pal’s parent’s house – last year – and it was quite obvious that they’re trying to kill their readers by raising their blood to boiling point.

          It is the right-wing equivalent of the Gruaniad or the Mirror and hasn’t even got a toe dipped in neutrality or fair coverage.

          The proprietor is trying to kill you. It’s like the NHS only more overt. They must be a Labour front organisation. Trying to kill reactionary old folk through high blood pressure before they can vote one more time.

          That said, by the same logic, the Gruanaid and Mirror must be owned by the T*ries.

      No. It’s the BBC doing Ned the biggest favour they can. Keeping him away from the voters attention.

      Just as very few people were aware of the weirdness of Brown until he became PM so Ned’s best strategy is to try and remain anonymous for the next four years and hope to produce a well-run election campaign with topless girls and fast cars in 2015 distracting attention from his ‘Wallace off Wallace and Grommit’ caricature fuckwittery.

    I like Peter Obourne , read most of his outputs , however him being a bit of an intellectual I am not too sure he hasnt been quietly hooked by Eds conference speech , did ed really redefine politics ? was his speech really one of those so called 30yr overarching visonary moments ?.
    Eds speech was about others making asumptions about what he said , yes we were all quick on the vague “good company bad company ” and some had even spotted the hidden menace of his licenced journo , hidden in the Milly Dowler disgust .
    Eds speech is interesting because it was constructed that way (now we hear older bro helped , although could be pissing on his bonfire just to be safe) ,journo after journo “what did you mean by…..” and so his minnions were left to define eds speech better , not that in its self didnt cause more problems .
    Ed broke away from the past , by assuming an interesting position , that in my analysis was meaningless , he was suggestively giving the public somthing new about marxism , that the elusive eutopia of capitalism could be attained by making new dazzleing divisons of socialist constraints to markets and business . He said the a post liberal era was here , which inferes he thinks you will not be able to do what you want and corporate supply is the answer . This is only a slight adjustment from the position of the ruins electioneering personal credit tap opening , where corporate finance did supply the answer , of dreamy happyness via consumerism .

    if you re tune eds speech and fill in the blanks with corporate socialism/marxism , you end up with somthing a little more scary , good companies that are favoured , journalists that dont report bad things, and tax breaks for which ever companies ticks the goverment boxes , a sort of soft fascist corporate state begins to emerge from eds speech , very similar to what new labour actually did and its diabolical totalitarian consumer political ending , cheap credit but with ID cards .

    Eds speech , was an escape , a new imaganeered landscape titled “eutopia” , or perhaps dont look at the steaming heap of junk we have left you as economy , look at this in my new glossy brouchour , somthing for somthing , he was taking us all holiday , and that feeling of facing work when you return .
    he was perhaps being an early post soviet Bulgarian tour rep “over here we have the loverly 18th century palace of vlad the nice ” who somehow did not want to show you the only recently disused political torture block and prison , also owned by vlad the nice ,on whose tour bus you were on , due to a change in circumstances for vlad.

    Ed squirmed alot post his speech , he did his best not to fill in the blanks , creating more interest , it was dreamy marxist intellectual pap , very clever , very for the poor soft left enquiring mind , insoluble ,undefinable , intellectual , post Blair gene splice of soft fascist corporate marxism . It has been some time since we heard an intellectual marxist , string a clever speech together , bit early for Peter Obourne to get hooked , on labours leftovers and plan bs that they never quite conceived properly .

    There is nothing visonary in posing an intriugueing question to cover a vast client state deciet , when assuming eutopia , its always been part of socialism .

Be it Red Ed at his conference or Nick Clogg as his, none of the major parties have offered the people a say on the continued membership of this left wing federalist wet dream. Cameron needs to fulfil his promise to the electorate on refernda in Europe and he should be held to account by activists at the conference.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
