Miliband’s Media Grid Shelved After PMQs Mess

Ed got the inevitable thrashing at PMQs, though it was clearly worse than they expected. Yesterday Labour media grid was leaked, yet today we can see that they’ve had to throw it out of the window after a dire morning. The faces lined up for the media today were Harman, Chuka Umunna and Ed Miliband, yet Balls had to be sent to Millbank to clean up immediately after Ed’s defeat. How bad must it be when Blinky is the mop-up man…

        We have an election in just one seat tomorrow, it will be interesting to see how things go.

        Cameron wasn’t even able to get a majority against Brown even when economy was in a bad shape. Cameron is very good at one liners as he doesn’t answer the question or just lie but he is bad at every thing else.

          Thanks Anonastooge, think that goes down as clutching at straws, your media grid really is all over the place. Back to simpering at your masters feet.

          An election in what is, when all is said and done, the modern equivalent of a “rotten borough” – a seat filled to the rafters with Labour client voters, with a candidate parachuted in due to her subcontinental credentials.

          I’m surprised they haven’t replaced party names with pictures to make the voters feel at home.

          The only interesting thing about the election will be whether UKIP manage to beat the LibDums – a Labour victory is all but assured due to demographics.

            Even before the voting you accept Labour win.

            I though UKIP will be 3rd but after last Friday it will be 4th or 5th. But it doesn’t matter as LD is useless as UKIP.

            Even the useless Greens has a MP.

            If you want to flush your money through the toilet call his company, there are local plumber who would do it cheaper.

            As for him going to India, 99.9999999% of the houses hasn’t go hot water or heating. 80% hasn’t got a tap. In India you can get a good plumber for less than £2 a day.

            He will do very well in India, let him go.

            I work at Heathrow, in an office a few doors down from Unite’s (quite large) local offices. Vast numbers residents work at Heathrow and are Unite members… Labour will win despite putting forward no credible alternative policies since the election – makes no sense to me…

            You seems to think current lots policy is credible!

            1) debt is going up much more than planned.
            2) unemployment is going up
            3) people coming into this country is going up
            4) crime going up

            If current lots policy is credible we would be in a better situation than May 2010 but we are in a worse situation.


          • CHRIST ON A BIKE! says:

            It’s a very safe Labour seat, stuffed with Postal voting types and history shows that the main opposition party, just about never lose by-elections, in seats that they hold, don’t know when the last time that happened, but almost never.


          • Really? says:

            The only way to have fun with the result of this safe Labour seat is to look at it as a fight for third place between UIKIP’s Andrew Charalambous and the Lib Dems.

          Gaylord says:

          Where in my post does it say I think the current lot are credible?!

          My point is Labour will win, no matter how good or bad they are, because this Labour/Unite territory. Credibility of either side doesn’t seem to be an issue for the voters here, or sadly most other places.

      Guido is right – shocking performance by Miliband and clearly lacks a decent PR team, most of all though he just acts/sounds/looks like a loser.

      If Labour retain him as leader and if CastIron can get across to the public that retardEd Miliband and Clegg both want our budget being set by unelected Europeans then you can expect a pretty large majority victory for the Conservatives at the next election.

        Fine performance from the BBC on Daily Politics. Having admitted that most emails were of the opinion that Ed was piss-poor at PMQ’s, that pouting minx Jo Coburn then proceeded to read out only ones that thought Ed did well. The bias was so blatant it was laughable.

      Tesco and the Pope? Are these separate issues or are they related?


      • 110
        I Hate Tesco AND the Pope says:

        Hello, Ed. No, they’re not related. I hate Tesco because it’s a criminal organisation that breaks planning laws, as happened recently in Harrogate. They treat suppliers and staff like shit. I know this from working for a market research organisation. Tesco destroys small, local shops and traders, as do some other big retailers. Tesco is by far the worst. Their produce is often second-rate, largely because of their cheese-paring (arf!) deals with suppliers. Many of the suppliers go out of business as a result. One told me he had to pay Tesco for in-store advertising out of his own pocket, just before he was dumped in favour of another small company. Tesco is in a strong, though slightly fading position, because of the preponderance of chavs in their customer base. If you read the excellent book Tescopoly you will never shop there again. We don’t need them and I boycott them totally and encourage others to do so. Please join us.

        As for the fuckers in the Vatican, I have first-hand experience of the church’s child-molestation shenanigans. Two handicapped sons of one of my friends were interfered with regularly in a Catholic special school in the ’70s and now, in their ’40s, have only just summoned up the courage to tell their parents what happened. I’m happy to say their father is currently taking legal advice. The way successive popes have attempted to side-step the day of reckoning by moving around suspect priests from parish to parish is nothing less than criminal. I could tell you in detail about the priest I met in Mexico who has been excommunicated for telling the single mums in his dirt-poor parish to use contraception, but I’ll be brief. He told me, close to tears, that he has no ground left in which to bury still-born and abandoned children.

          Special Ed says:

          Thanks for the reply. Makes sense. I actually share your views – just couldn’t figure out how to lump the two together. ;-) Cheers…


          • I Hate Tesco AND the Pope says:

            Actually, Ed, your welcome question has made me realise Tesco and the Vatican (as opposed to whichever Pope is wearing the ridiculous robes) ARE related. Both are criminal organisations. I may have linked them subconsciously. Perhaps I should change my moniker to I Hate Tesco AND The Vatican! I’m pleased you have sympathy with my opinions.


        • 124
          A Vatican Spokesman says:

          His Holiness has asked me to say that we are not a priest ridden, guilt obsessed, mumbo-jumbo mumbling, relic worshipping, child molesting, indulgence selling criminal organisation and He should know as He is infallible.
          So there.

          Greychatter says:

          Often wonder – with Tesco and the other big stores, who announce big job creations with new stores, presumably mostly for part time staff. Do these employees claim Tax credits?

          To what extent are the Tax Payers subsidizing the Super Markets Profits?

    Labour don’t do Economics, they never have, and they never will.

    Also, they (and the Lib Dems, BBC, Guardian, and the lentil eating class in general) berate the Tories for being “isolated” in Europe, yet what they fail to realise is that Cameron’s proverbial flibbing of the bird to the EU is a vote winner. The more they criticise this act of defiance, the more it makes them look “isolated”.

      whilst the BBC and ex eurocrats line up on the bbc to critsize cameron, most voters think he has done the right thing. If the euro does go done the toilet ( i hope it does not) then who wants to be holding worthless euros or trying to change the currency into national currencies. Would you really want to change your euros into drachma or lira really. The markets see a bad deal as the southern euro states will not reform. The merde will hit the fan when the EU tells france how to run its economy, as it eventually will !!

    Tescos are a bunch of arseholes who do treat Suppliers with contempt and disshonesty, they are driven by price and price only, quality and value for money is of NO interest to them

    We incidentally to there shock informed THEM we wished to be removed from there Supplier list and have since returned to a healthy profit and much less stress

    We should all boycott that most wretched of Companies.

    As for Milltwit and Balls ? they are finished. Balls surely has to be a Tory Mole whose brief is to ensure that what little credibilty they (labour) have is destroyed

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”

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.
