DUEMA: Expect Labour Bloggers to Try Spin Dodgy Ed Graph

Just wait till the dis-loyalists get their hands on the latest LabourList poll that tries to pretend that more than half of the Labour Party hate Ed:

This is clearly the work of Dan Hodges taking the survey multiple times. Shame on LabourList for not weighting the poll accordingly and then trying to craft an “average at best” narrative around it.

All this stirring has to stop.

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    I am one of the 5.7 % i think Ed miliband is excellent as Labour party leader.

      If it was the Tory party who were surveyed they would agree with you billy that Ed Milliband is an excellent Labour party leader another Foot or Kinnock in the making

      Can we run a concurrent campaign on ‘2 Ed’s are better than 1’? I think they should both remain, unopposed, in their seats for ever.

        Broadsword calling Danny Boy says:

        I’ll go for that. Could we improve it to 4 Eds are better than none by including both the Mrs Eds?

        Don’t forget Chuckup Umunna. He sits on the sidelines, somewhat eclipsed by Ed & Ed, but I’m sure that with more exposure the public could firstly identify who he is and, secondly, grow to dislike support him just as much as they hate love Ed & Ed.

        Much as I think the presence of Bully Balls in the Shadow Cabinet helps to keep Labour out of office it would be a delight to see him kicked out by his constituents

      My cousin in Nigeria would like to have a chat, he’s got a business proposition you might find interesting.

      oh and before I go, you wouldn’t happen to know any others from this 5.7% would you, email addresses etc, we’d be most grateful and it would be a shame if they missed out on this opportunity…


  2. 2

    The 5.7% are the 99%. The rest of the 94.3% are the 1%. All hail the Leader.

        Not quite. 21.9% think he’s ‘poor’ because they’re raving Marxist loons who regard Ed as too right wing.

          Shock and urrgh says:

          I thought that was the more plausible reason!!


          • Dolly says:

            It’s actually true, the regular posters at labourlist are fucking windowlicking loons.

            Especially Homfray, Jo (who I think is a man, definitely something odd about her), and Derek (likely alcoholic).

            Allegedly…in my opinion.

      H Doodson says:

      Not really, if we gave 100 monkeys the same question they would average at 20% thinking he was a very poor leader. This makes the 21% figure from the polling somewhat less impressive.

    Lord Kinnock thinks Ed will be a great Prime Minister but then again he thought he’d won the 1992 General Election………….

    1 in 5 Labour members think Ed is doing a good/excellent job. In unrelated news, 1 in 5 Labour members are completely bats**t insane.

      Well what do you expect? I am a Member of the Labour Party after all, and representative of the best talent in the Party.

    Are the 5% who think he’s doing an excelent job the same 5% that still want to join the Euro


  9. 14
    Scallywag says:

    Surely the opinion of a Labour voter cannot be taken seriously. They are mostly somewhere between cretin and insane to hold such views

    These are the sort of people who would vote Labour in a general election in the vain hope that Miliband minimus and his mate Ed Blinkybollox would be put into Nos 10 and 11 respectively, at least until Blinky could get into No 10 himself and really bankrupt the country.

    Wouldn’t this call into serious question the results of this ‘poll’. All the votes should be on the green bar.

        Plus, he was very good in Shallow Grave.

          Not his fault. The BBC got rid of writers to be replaced by messagers making sure that the viewer is on message.

          For example see the christmas special crapola.


          • Rufus T Gnatstrangler says:

            Yes, that was a waste of time. Apparently it was better than the 2010 Christmas Special, which I’m told was truly dire. And it must have been.

      That £80million for fireworks is going to look pretty damned stupid. Especially when Alcy Aida are probably going to set off some pretty big fireworks, free of charge.

      It’s an exciting night for them – the first night of their honeymoon. I wonder who their husbands will be.

      Dobson gets shown to his prison cell. In it, there’s a 6’6″ black guy who’s built like a brick shithouse. The black guy looks at Dobson and says, ”I’m going to be your cellmate for the next 15 years. Do you want to be the husband or the wife?”

      Dobson thinks as quickly as he can and replies, ”I want to be the husband!”

      “Fair enough,” says the black guy, “now get on your knees and suck your wife’s cock.”

    Just one thing we know that the majority of the Toryboys, especially on this blog, don’t like Teddy boy or his strange assistant, but how many Toryboys think Cammeron and his mate Gideon are doing an excellent job, a good job,
    average job, poor job or finally a very poor job, also if doing a good or better job, if Ted and Ted are just making them look better than they really are. That last question is put in considering the various derisory comments that have been posted on this blog about Dave since he became PM.

      Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

      Not everyone on here is a Tory.

      Other thing is, if Ed were PM he would be spending even more, taxing even more, borrowing even more.

      We are not fans of Dave, more like the lesser of two evils.

        Glad to see you think you can speak for the forum Billy, despite the fact that most here (and certainly the proprietor) seem to despise homosexuals such as your self.

        And I’m sure you’re right, and it’s not all Tories here but you’d have to be naive to think that anything other than the massive, overwhelming majority of posters here are in fact full on card carrying Tories (with some dressing themselves up as ‘libertarians’ of course).

        No bad thing of course but lets not kid ourselves that theres any kind of broad church in operation here; it’s as much a borg like hive mind here as any gathering of NuLab drones

          NB the Conservatives also have homosexuals in their ranks, they seem to be accepted as long as they do not flaunt themselves openly, they might not be acepted by various members but if they pay their subs they have the right to participate. Willy is Guido no1 fan, he would jump naked over a barbed wire fence to support him!

        Fake Willy, WAKE UP! Party conferences are very boring the speakers just preaching to the coverted, they should be speaking to the voters in general and putting their points across. Party broadcasts are just the signal everyone uses to put the kettle on they are so one sided and boring.

    Labourlist has tanked under Ferguson and it is the joke of the bloggosphere. Ferguson doesn’t know his arse from his elbow. By his own admission he is a hardcore tribalist and this articles underlines the blinkered way he thinks. Daily hypocrisy and drivel. LL Now has next to no readership. Compete is the only place where you can really get any independent stats and LL is in the toilet.

    Ferguson was spinning a readership of 550,000. In my view his readership is well under 1,000 and 250 on average. Perhaps he should separate out the search engine crawls to realise what’s really happening.

    For anyone who doesn’t visit the site (and you really shouldn’t) it’s material ranges from pathetic tenuous snides from the editor about the Tories and the Libs, to brainless articles from fellow tribalists drivelling on about Labour should do and intermingled with brainless twaddle from Chris Williamson the MP for Derby.
