Get Your #SaveEd Twibbon

The Don’t Unseat Ed Miliband Association is thriving, followers on Twitter can now add a “Save Ed” logo to their profile image by clicking here. Get it on.

We hope to persuade Peter Hain to join us as a patron and ensure that Ed Miliband leads the Labour Party into the general election. For that is what we all want…

      Guy Burgess says:

      Ed Miliband, like his father Ralph, is a Trotskyist, and Trotskyists ARE Libertarians (see the history of the Neocon movement). Ed is simply taking over the reins from the likes of Blair, Mandelson and Brown who are also Libertarians.

      http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/graphic/2008/02/01/GR2008020102389.html

      Ed Miliband’s function, along with New Labour generally over the past 13 years, is (and has been) to bury Old Labour as a statist party, and to facilitate grass-roots democracy (Trotskyism/anarchism/Neo-conservativism) instead. The New Left always has been Trotskyite not Stalinist. The state must wither away. Stalin modelled socialist Russia on the Fabian concept of socialism (Fabianism – see the Webbs’ on Russia) and Wall Street and the USA regards Fabianism as anathema to free-market Libertarianism, aka consumerism.

        Ed Miliband’s leadership is threatened by this Blairite policy coup

        http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/jan/16/ed-miliband-leadership-threatened-blairite-coup

        “The political elite that was united in promoting the City-first deregulation policies that led to the crash is now united in asserting that ordinary people must pick up the tab for it. It leaves the country with something like a “national government” consensus where, as in 1931, the leaders of the three main parties agree on a common agenda of austerity to get capitalism – be it “good” or “bad” – back on its feet”

        Ed must have crossed a union red line to have wrought this ire from the unions. Will they bring him “to heel”?

        I do not think libertarianism means what you think it means.

        Neocons like Blair, Mandelson et al are as far from libertarian as it is possible to get – they are statists converted to corporatism by personal greed and venality.

        If you wish to discuss political standpoints, then redefining corporatism as libertarianism isn’t a very helpful starting point.

        For the roots of libertarian thought, Burke and Thoreau are a god place to look – the Webbs and Hitler (at the root of New Labour) less so.

        Please play again when you have the slightest idea of what the fuck you are talking about.

          Kim (Stanley) Philby says:

          At the end of the C19th and early years of the C20th Britain opened its doors to asylum seekers fleeing persecution in Eastern Europe. What Britain didn’t seem to appreciate is that amidst those asylum seekers were anarchists who were feeling not persecution, but justified antagonism towards their anti-statist subversive behaviour. Some of those migrants moved on to NYC. In 1917 elements of this same group were used by the German High command to get Russia off their Eastern front by toppling the Tsar. Others were used by Britain according to Lloyd George to destabilise the Middle East, and thus make things difficult for the Ottoman Empire, an ally of Germany. In later decades, anarchism became free-market libertarianism which is anti-statist. This is why we have such a weak Public Sector. The anger today is because a clever minority use other less able groups to further erode their economic competition. For decades after WWII, Britain built up its welfare state through hard work and austerity. The ‘liberalism’ of the 60s was in fact subversion. After all, the kids hadn’t paid for the state, their parents had. It’s been down-hill ever since, with Thatcher’s mob (Keith Joseph playing the the Grey Cardinal) promoting anarchism as freedom/individualism, whilst casting the USSR etc as evil (Saachi etc PR). It was of course quite the reverse in reality. The USSR, like China today, put people before self-interest, duty before rights, i.e responsibility before narcissism.

            If you wish to try to conflate anarchist bolshevism with libertarianism, then good luck to you. They are about as far apart as it is possible to get, though they do share a rejection of received authority as a core belief.

            Warning – only the most fuckwitted of Labour party supporters will believe you.

            And the neocons (the hint is in the name) are by definition Communists who became right wingers, like Blair, Brown and their friends Mussolini and Hitler before them.

            The way the anarchists (libertarians) work is by extending the franchise to as many (stupid) people as possible, knowing full well that this will ensure the removal of all governance and thus unleash the free-market and naked capitalism. That’s a sure-fire way of increasing consumers, unprotected by any regulation, i.e. no protection for them whatsoever from the snake-oil salespersons!

            But hey, that’s their choice eh? Making out they’re all geniuses suits the marketeers just fine thank you, so don’t you dare suggest that all people aren’t equally bright/able. They don’t need no nanny state telling them what’s good for them and what isn’t! Give 5 year olds the vote!

        Jethro says:

        49 – Yes: obviously they don’t teach Basic English Grammar, Syntax, and Orthography in New York. Here’s his piece:
        I’d like to thank the Independent for the privilege of working for them over the past nine years, and for offering me my job back, starting in a few weeks. But after nearly six months living in New York City, and plenty of time to reflect, I’ve decided to not take them up on their kind offer.

        There are two reasons. I’m willing to take the flack for my errors myself: when you screw up, you should pay a price. But I’m not willing to see other people, who are played no part in those errors and are unimpeachably decent people, take the flack too. It’s not fair on them. The Independent has been great to me, and we need its principles in the public arena without distractions.

        Secondly, while doing some journalistic retraining in the US, I’ve started working on a book on a subject I believe is important and requires urgent action. To be done properly it needs international travel and the kind of in depth focus that’s not possible when you are writing a heavily researched column at the same time. So, while I’ll be writing occasional articles elsewhere, I’ll be mainly delving deeply into this one subject for now.

        Above all else, I’d like to thank all the readers of the Independent. Ever since I started as a columnist as a 23 year old I have learned so much from you. I often learned the most from the more critical messages – you have talked me out of a dozen positions – but your supportive letters and emails since last July have hugely moved me.

        I’ll continue to be a loyal reader and supporter of the Independent. It is one of the world’s great newspapers, and I feel privileged to have been part of it all these years.
        So, we get the infelicity of a ‘split infinitive’ in the second sentence and a confusion of Subjects in the first (‘the privilege… and for offering…’, rather than, say, ‘for allowing me to work for them… and for offering me…’). In the second paragraph, we have the ‘flack’ you’ve mentioned, and then ‘who are played no part in those errors': either he should have written ‘who are no part
        …’ or ‘who have played no part…’. Before that, he wrote, ‘you should pay a price': surely, the expression is ‘pay the price’?
        But then… Meeting a murderer in Broadmoor is not something one does every day, so our conversation remains deeply embedded on my mind.
        ‘How did you get on with Sir John Murray?’
        ‘Oh, John Murray – pretty well, but you had to watch him like a hawk, else he’d be trying to smuggle in some…’
        ‘Files? Hack-saws?’
        His laughter was irrepressibly gay.
        ‘Oh no: try and smuggle in some folk-etymology he was unaccountably attached to. Of course, he was at the other end of the scale compared to the Fowlers.’
        He registered my puzzlement.
        ‘No, you see they were Modernisers; he was an Ancientiser.’
        Seeing me looking anxious, he searched among a great heap of papers, at last triumphantly bringing forth a torn scrap.
        ‘There you are, you see: ‘Ancientiser n. (uncommon) cf. ‘gothiciser’. One who habitually finds, or tries to find, a possibly spurious antiquity for a word or expression’. A bit like those folk who so successfully convinced people that the town had its origins in a Roman settlement, ciren-castra, that no-one now calls it correctly by its far elder name of ‘Cisseter’.
        He emphasised the first syllable so much, fixing me, the while, with a meaningful glare, that I thought it prudent to ring for the Attendant…

Since Brown is now a foreigner we can say that the country was the victim of a vicious anti-English/British campaign by a foreign national between 1997-2010, which was at its height from 2007-2010. Then we can treat Brown in the same way as Bin Liner and put a cruise missile through his window (not up his backside though – he’d enjoy it).

    The in-depth report into the August looting spree somehow managed to over-look the old man kicked to death in West London, the small business owners who had to watch their livelihoods go up in smoke and that foreign student mugged by scumbags he thought were trying to help him.

    The researchers did make one fascinating discovery. They found that people who commit crimes aren’t too keen on the cops. No shit Sherlock?

      Five innocent people lost their lives in those riots because Dave could not be arsed to come back off his Tuscan hols and people thought it Ok.

      Milly should have done more on that fateful Sunday. He simply went AWOL.

      Dread to think how many will die this summer.

        Strange. I thought five people died because the police shot a bl*ck drug dealer dead and the ‘community’ took issue with this interference in local commerce.

        It didn’t help that it suited the police, who were/are in line for man-power reductions, to let things get out of control to give them a better bargaining position.

        Then of course there was Labour/BBC positively relishing the thought of summer riots from the day Cameron was elected. If one of the main political parties is building up people’s expectations that there’ll be riots then their supporters kind of take that as a green light. They’ll be pre-disposed to a bit of rioting.

        I really don’t think Cameron is in the frame here at all.

    This has gone too far.

    Might I suggest that Her Majesty the Queen NEEDS Milliband – with him in charge and giving Scotland Independence, there may be a very good chance of getting rid of the Labour party.

    I think a better idea would be to set up a ” lets unseat Ed Milliband Association”.

    It could then be done really pathetically and poorly. When Ed finds out about it, he will feel better about himself and continue the course as he will think that the only people interested in getting rid of him are “idiots” – a double bluff.

    Remember what is at stake – Her Majesty and the crown need Milliband, because with him, we can (well I can at least) sleep easy.

    He makes Harold Wilson look “right wing” and Kinnock “intelligent”.

      Aiming for failure..Labour hopes running into the ground says:

      The latest YouGov polls gives Tories 5% over Labour at 41% compared to 36% and LibDems at 9% which would give Cameron a majority if there was an election to-day. The fact is that given the problems the Coalition is having on a variety of policies etc Labour should be around 20 points ahead at this stage in the cycle(the polls narrow the nearer to election day you get)but they’re not……why ?

      The Labour Party is still not credible on the economy. People realise that if in government they would be doing the same.

      Labour have two of the worse politicians in the key roles of Leader and Shadow Chancellor.The public just do not warm to either. Their core vote is dis-heartened mainly because for the past 18 months Miliband and Co have been building up their expectations on reversing public sector cuts etc and now they’ve had to admit reality.

      Like the USA where it seems that Obama will be up against a Republican no hoper in either Romney or Gingrich unless some miracle occurs likewise Cameron is almost guaranteed a re-election in 2015 with Miliband in charge of Labour.
