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.

    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.

    Well thats another Couple of Million Pounds Tax Free Cash for my unbiased advice on how to throttle this House of Lords Reform Bill for my best fiend Ed……

    Of course it has nothing to do with my well deserved Ennoblement once I anointed as President of the World & later the Universe….purely co-incidence & unconnected of course plus Cherie agrees so it must be right….

    Ed Miliband says:

    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.

    Well he’s not done too bad since the omnishambles budget and scored a few direct hits on Flashman

    Penfold says:

    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.
    Labour, spending your money as it grows on trees.

    Penfold says:

    But surely the troops will have to be CRB checked, it’s the rules innit.

    Are you serious, or just taking the piss? Hope it’s the latter. If not, you are beyond help.

    Don’t forget the tax loopholes that you have availed yourself of; can’t have the plebs getting hold of your riches and wasting it on beer and tabs.

    Seymour says:

    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.

    Joss Taskin says:

    I wonder which wonk thought up the now over-used cliche ‘omnishambles’.

  50. 50

    Add…. Try to schmooze the LibDem hysterical left so that after the next election they get into Labour’s bed.

  51. 51

    Already done, mate. It’s part of the recruiting procedure.

    Jimmy says:

    Yes this opposition is making a terrible job of getting the government’s programme through. There should be an immediate election to allow the tories to replace them.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
