Ed Hints at Lords Retreat

Miliband told the Lobby lunch that the Lords reform bill “coming through Commons has to be a bloody good Bill” if the Parliament Act will be used to force it through the Lords. It’s safe to say that if it even gets to that stage it will be a mess of wrecking amendments and contentious points. Who will decide on what a good bill looks like?

Guido fully expects the “it’s not a good enough Bill” to be used as an excuse for the whole thing to be ditched. Ed would be able to blame the Tories for abandoning something his own troops don’t want.

      It simply beggars belief that someone like me, who has never had a job, never known real British people, with parents who supported the Red Army in WW2, who acts like an indignant student leader, can be in charge of the Labour Party.

      And dont get me started on the London property portfolio I have funded through my expenses.

    The strategy is so simple. Dangle a carrot for Dave and Nick to keep on trying for reform, dangle a carrot for the Tory back-benchers that you’ll thiuk about supporting them. Pull rug at appropriate time from whichever group will mean the most in-fighting in the Tory party and dislocation of the coalition.

    Perhaps Ed would like to apologise to Londoners and UK taxpayers over Olympics.
    When the bids went in the costs were estimated at £3bn.
    A few years on and the revised estimates were £9bn
    Now we are being told it will be £8.5bn.

    Yet another NuLab vanity project, and Ed M’s hands are all over this, badly costed, deliberately so, so as not to alarm the taxpayers.

    The only people who want or wated to reform the lords are MPs.
    Blair strated the rot to allow more of his cronies in after they lost their seats as MPs or Union posts. Clegg wants it because he is a moron and Cameron is an idiot. As for EdMilli, we may be saved from more thieving bastards by a back stabbing no nothing shyster.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
