What a Difference Two Years Makes

730 days ago the Labour Party were secretly flapping about their leader, but publicly grinning, all be it with guns to their head:

If Guido recalls correctly, Gordon’s “relaunch” a few days later was a spectacular success.

      Just seeing those labour aresholes back in the Government benches is a flashback that could cause a serious mental breakdown.

      Thank God that they are finally out of power……Hopefully forever!

      2012 will be Ed's last chance. says:

      Look it’s just bloody stupid. If someone is not up to the job then the only sensible thing is to remove the person from the job. Just what is the point of soldiering on pretending otherwise?

      The problem with selecting a leader is that you don’t know if he can actually lead until he has a go.

      Labour do know that Harriet Harman is a capable man as is Darling. Long may your keep Ed at the top campaign last but I don’t think it will.

      I see Alan Johnson came out this morning with the statement “This will be a pivotal year and it’s got off to a shaky start for Labour” Which in plain spe@k means it’s Ed’s make or break year, if he can not get his act together then he will have to go to give a new leader chance to prepare for the 2015 election. Johnson also went on to say “”We cannot get to 2015 and an election with the public and the media asking the question ‘Who is Ed Miliband?'” . The knives are out and are being sharpened, Ed has been formally warned.

      That slippery coniving bugger Straw would have been involved at some point in the plot before calculating it would be better for him if he chickened out.

    Until the true purpose and effects of communism, socialism, fascism, marxism and the other versions of leftwing politics are taught, honestly, in our schools, people like this will continue on their path towards the destruction of our way of life, our country and ultimately, Western civilisation. Socialists/communists should not be allowed anywhere near to either power or money because it is in their nature to abuse them both.

    Problem for Miliband was that he made a pact with a devil.
    Rumour that there’s a picture of Gordon Brown in his attic, getting older and more and more bitter each day.

    Actually it might not be a picture.
    It might be Gordon Brown himself. Gently rocking away in Miliband’s attic.

      I do not believe that Tesco in Henley even stocks “low-value items”. He should be in court rather than pretending to have psychological difficulties that need treatment. Five times and on video strikes me as deliberate theft.

    Cameron ever since coming to office has treated the scots with complacency and arrogance evidenced by some extremely poor parliamentary candidates.

    In the glenrothes by election he even congratulated the conservative candidate for coming in a poor third!

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…”



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.
