Miliband is a Reader

Miliband probably had his best Commons outing yet this afternoon. When Guido asked his team what what they fed him today the reply was “Tories on toast.” There was a touch of a young William Hague in the balance of well-timed comedy and attack…

Ed (or his speechwriters) have clearly been reading the Daily Star Sunday – his Boris gag was lifted straight from it:

NOTICEABLY, the Prime Minister did not pop in to the party to congratulate the only Tory success of the elections. Just as well, since Boris, when he finally arrived, thanked supporters who, he joked, beat “the rain, the BBC, that Budget and the endorsement of David Cameron”.

If you missed that, and the rest of Guido’s Sunday column, then you can read it online here.

    For fuck sake Dave, there’s no point in continually appeasing a bunch of Limpdick bedwetters just for some deluded notion that it keeps you “in power”. They’re going to be annihilated at the next election and on present form the Tories are going with them. Either grow a pair and stand up to them or move aside for someone who will.

    Serious comment for once. Your general thrust is correct except that Italy will be ok (they owe most of their debt to their own population), Ireland might survive (only one showing discipline) and I would look very carefully at France (National Stats Office data is notoriously massaged). Will take time though; Germany will want it to be a gradual process due to their holdings of bonds (see Commerzbank results).

    Milliband is the next Prime Minister. Even the betting shops think so now.

    What a f*_cking damning inditement of the UK that out of a population of around 75 million, the best person we can find to be our leader is some rubber-faced sex doll with a ZX-spectrum sound chip for a voice.

    I mean really!!! With all the historical legacy, inventions and great men that this counrty has seen, is this really the best we can do?

    I reckon I could find many better behind the fish counter of my local Tesco’s. What a sorry shower of sh*_t.

    But I think Camperon doesn’t want to be a majority government, he gets a kick out of sucking off Clegg and pissing off the Tory right.

    He’s toast alright and the Tories know it. As for Osborne, he makes Gordon Brown look talented.

    See BBC. That’s how you do balance.
    People need to be able to defend their views. You let them do that, but without pandering to their sensibilities.

    Thee BBC think having an Islamist hate preacher on the show to defend his whakoness, and inviting a right wing, Christian fundamentalist, Apocalypse, bible burner on to preach their looney tunes somehow balances things out.

    BBC NEWS – 2015

    Jeremy Hunt was the most senior official in the party and he wrote a letter to William Hague after the damaging loss of hundreds of councils in May 2012.
    He warned of growing financial difficulties and the threat of relegation from government

    Hunt wrote of Keaneron: “He has lost the crowd and as a result of this evening’s results has lost the party supporters dressing room as well – the voters no longer want to vote for him. It is a shame and disappointing but we must act now to save the country.”

    It is unknown whether Hunt received a reply but few of the recommendations in his 2,500-word letter were acted upon.

    The Tory party were relegated to the Championship after Ed Miliband road a bandwagon into parliament last week.
    Keaneron has said he isn’t standing down and intends to lead the party back to glory.

    And the Liberal Democrats have gone into voluntary administration after their wipeout in the election last week. The Liberals lost 99% of their MPs and have now been overtaken as the third party of politics by the Respect Party.

    I see that the ramifications of the failures of Eric Pickles to clean up corrupted local governments like Waltham Forest Council continue. Last night the planning committee voted on ‘party lines’ to permit a dense Boradwater farm style slum building project in Walthamstow – on a heritage site – against the wishes of 97% of local residents and in the face of the opposition of many councillors and two MPs: Iain Duncan Smith and Stella Creasy.

    The vote is widely considered to be inexplicable unless corruption is the explanation. Now Boris Johnson will have to do the right thing and reject the application.

It’s not a tinfoil type theory. Just ask the Is rael is who see first hand the rate at which arabs have children. Islàm is about world domination, it’s in the terrorist handbook they call the koran, and muslìms see it as their duty to have more children than everyone else.

    We’ve already given up so much to muslìms. Allowing hàlal meat to be sold in supermarkets, govt funded muslìm schools, and the sort of political correctness that let 9 foul perverts rape up to 50 girls.

    Forget it. This country is fucked. To our eternal shame we stood by and let poisonous bile be hurled at Is ra el, not realising that the very existence of Is ra el is central to the global fight against islamìc terror and domination. As long as the Je wish state exists, muslìms cannot hope to achieve their goals. Not for nothing are most muslìms virulently anti semitic.

    Normally, when resevoirs are low, they are topped up by pumping riverwater into them. Now, when there is a re@l drought, river levels drop and so pumping is not allowed, causing shortages.
    Since the start of this “drought” and hosepipe ban, rivers have been running at very high levels and some even flooding.
    So why have water companies not been pumping river water to resevoirs as usual and just relying on rainfall, when there is no restriction on the amount they can extract from full rivers?

    Might be of interest that John McTernan, unflushed shit in the toilet of socialism, has taken on a local radio identity – Ross Greenwood on 2GB in Sydney – and got served up like a dog’s dinner.

    Greenwood is a highly experienced and extremely fair financial commentator who has identified some of the gross lies in the recent socialist regime budget in Australia.

    As a result he was treated to a 12 minute diatribe by the scots git, after which Greenwood has gone back on air tonight, exposed the whole con the government is running on superannuation for its cabinet fat cats, and tipped a well mannered but devastating load all over McTernan.

    And this is but the beginning of what will be a splenetic coordinated attack.

    Martin says:

    Good performance by Ed M yesterday – he’s perhaps doing better with a following wind.

    Why is no one pointing out (Dennis Skinner) that the first leg of the double-dip recession (three years between legs, give me a break!) occurred during and was the result of the previous Labour government.

    Listening to the Beast of Bolsover and media commentators, you would think the posh boys were responsible for it all!

    Cradley Heath Graphite Sandwich says:

    i think y’know, what i would say is that what happened was, was that you know, the important thing is, is that people want to know, is ordinary people want to know, is, that was, this is completely unacceptable, and i, i, i, think that y’know, we made it very clear at the time because that was, y’know, er, this, was, the question was, the question was, y’know, were we doing the right thing, yes, and that was, y’know, because what, what, what we said was, was that y’know, we, are, basically liars, and when we, y’know, we said that that’s what’s important, it’s important that we, y’know, think that that’s exactly what it was, y’know, totally unacceptable

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
