Shred Ed: Miliband Sacks Old Guard

Ed Miliband’s reshuffle is well under-way and he’s sacked one of the few former Labour Ministers to back him in the leadership contest. John Denham, who is said to have helped Ed craft the “good business/bad business” section of his conference speech that saw him so ridiculed, has been given the chop. To add to the humiliation, Denham will become the unpaid PPS to the leader, which means the former Brown spinner Michael Dugher is definitely is going up.

It wouldn’t be a reshuffle without someone quitting to “spend more time with their family”, so step forward please John Healey. The invisible Shadow Health Secretary was allegedly offered a lesser job, but decided to walk instead. Ed has gushed during the exchange of letters a little too much for this to have been anything other than a sacking. There’s an hilarious rumour doing the rounds that Caroline Flint will be given this poisoned chalice. Lansley will be shaking in his boots, and Burnham would be the obvious choice…

Elsewhere David Miliband, the man that quit to spend less time with his family, is not expected to return, though there is some speculation that Alan Johnson might be ready to put his head back above the parapet. As predicted here Meg Hillier is set to go, and Ann McKechin was spotted yesterday afternoon looking sad. There will hardly be tears shed if Shaun Woodward is put out to pasture. Plenty of room for those long tipped 2010 intakers to ruin their careers and jump on Ed’s sinking ship…

UPDATE: The BBC is tipping Gloria to take over from Ivan Lewis.

        Too right. The Rothchilds haven’t been a significant banking family for several generations.

        But why should that stop some good old fashioned Left Wing National Socialist Workers Party antisemites…..

        In fact, it’s the Arabs who now actually control the world’s money markets as they once controlled the slave trade……

          Hear! Hear!

          And the A-rabs run Hollywood too! And the Black Pope and the Jesuits run the New World Order. And Joseph Ratzinger is the Head of the Illuminati, and … .

          Sorry guys, when even the thick-as-shit everyday Yanks have finally begun to wake up to who and what runs and owns THEIR country, it’s too late for slinging monkey-shit ‘antisemite’ and ‘racist’ labels around. You’re fucked, you psycho phallus-worshippers, and we’re coming to get you, judicially or extra-judicially.


          • Yeah Alex, As soon as the Labels start to get thrown around. You know its just a fuck–g smoke screen.
            The World is starting to wake up now and seeing what really has been going on. The BBC didn’t get rid of Dyke for Nothing. They got rid of him because he was telling the truth, Kelly told the truth, any one who tells the truth either dies or is removed. Well I think the World is starting to see the Truth, so what now?

            I have single handedly saved the world from Capitalism. I am a hero of the people and will be in charge of the Labour Camps, Gulags & Re-Education Camps so beloved of my Left wing friends, students, Pol Pot and other rich socialists.

            Keep the Red Flag Flying. I’m coming home!!

      You’re so unfair Nelly.

      It was I who provided the leadership that saved the world in 2008. Call me Dave just prattles on about leadership.

      It was I who kept us out of the dreaded Euro, call me Dave will get us sucked in deeper into Europe.

    Moody’s has cut its rating on the debt of 12 UK banks, including the state-supported Lloyds Banking Group and Royal Bank of Scotland.
    The ratings agency said it was making the cut because the Government will have to keep supporting the country’s biggest banks, but is more likely to let small banks fail.

      The observer says:

      Moody’s is behind the curve and playing catch up.
      The agencies own credit ratings are also falling.


      • 21

        Who will credit rate the credit rating agencies?

        (Sorry, cannot quite manage this in Latin.)

        Joss Taskin says:

        Wasn’t it Moody’s and the other agencies who conferred high ratings on the toxic CDOs. synthetic CDOs and other financial weapons of mass destruction ???

          Down the rabbit hole says:

          The credit rating agencies are a bunch of wankers. The rate someone who has lived within their means and not taken on any debt as a “bad credit Risk”. Utter mongs no wonder we are fucked !

          If Moody is still over rating, its going to be interesting times to live in.

    David Milliband.

    You’ll know that the labour party is no longer completely knackered when he’s back.

    Raving Loon says:

    Not that I support Labour at all (actually I would rather see the party wiped from history) but the fact they haven’t got David Millitwat in their 1st XI is testament to their stupidity. He’s one of the few slightly electable people in the party and that they’ve sidelined him only suggest how much they don’t want to be in power.

      The Observer says:

      Except that he has a huge deficiency of courage – a terminal disease if ever there was one in Labour politics seeing that ethics and honesty are very low on their agenda

    Steve Miliband says:

    Rumours are rife that Ed has shuffled so much that he has sacked himself, but can’t remember who the new leader is.

    Gerry Mandering says:

    Now is the time for a snap general election. Labour disorganised. LibDems disappearing at a fast rate of knots. Recession / Depression still some way away.

    Best get the blood letting over now so there can be a firm hand at the tiller as we get through this stormy period.

    What are the odds he’ll bottle it.

    Tacitus says:

    I predict that many of the sacked ministers of Red Ed will wear it as a badge of honour in later years.
    BBC states they “were all voluntary” – you could not make it up.

    Loved the bit about David Milliband quitting to spend less time with his family LOL

    well its a thought says:

    So they played pass the none job and all have moved from one none job to another none job, same faces same corruption and same 30% of voters who will vote these charlatons in, so a bit fibreglass and a bit of filler, sanded and painted and off they go to the sales,no change then.

    genghiz the kahn says:

    Burnham’s evidence at the Staffs Hospital Inquiry shows that he is not fit to run a bath.

    The standard ZaNuLab spin of it was the fault of whistle blowers, GPs, Managers, Patients for not flagging up the problems to the esteemed Minister.

      jgm2 says:

      Private Eye explains how whistle-blowers are dealt with by the NHS. It’s a closed-shop death-cult.

      Anybody who expresses any concerns at all is immediately ostracised as ‘not a team player’ or ‘with an axe to grind’. It is/was like pointing out the economic recklessness during the Brown imbecility. If you dared to question what was going on you were immediately pigeon-holed as a ‘Tory’ or a ‘troll’ and thus, could be safely ignored.

      And of course it’s the same people with the same political mind-set that sideline and crush any resistance. It’s for ‘the greater good’ you see. Because they say so.

    Wasn’t one of the pieces of evidence that American girl was an evil sexual witch that she left a dildo lying around.

    I have no idea why that thought occurred to me whilst looking at this page.

    Okay. Who do I have to see to get a cut of this 75bn in printed cash. I can set up a company JGM2 Airlines with no assets and claim that all is holding me back from expanding the business is the inability to buy (say) British Airways on account of not having 5bn quid (or whatever) which the wicked banks refuse to extend to me.

    Then use the free money to buy British Airways. Then promote myself to Chairman and CEO and take a salary of (say) 2 million quid a year for doing fuck-all. Just delegate the day-to-day running to the guy who does it now. I really don’t see what’s wrong with this business model so – who do I apply to for my 5bn quid. To help the economy you understand.

      Fuck off you racist anti-semite. That £75(£275bn to date) is G_d’s money, for G_d’s people, doing G_d’s work only – u sury and general fraud and shit on the plebs – or whatever that saint Lloyd Blankfein said. So, in short, fuck off goy pleb and die. What do you think this is, your country!?

      Sir Everard Digby says:

      Only one slight flaw -that money will only circulate within the Finance industry. Better off setting up a bank,lending zillions to people who can never pay you back, re-sell your duff loans elsewhere, then get the assets overvalued to hide your problem -no worries,the government will underwrite this. simply pay yourself vast bona and benefits. Plus a good golden handshake package to ease the pain of failure.

    The Truth says:

    The rating agencies rate based on the market. The market then trade based on the rating.

    Might I remind you that a short while prior to Bear Stearns going under, it held a top-rated investment grade rating.
