Wee Dougie Coughs Ken Truth

Douglas Alexander has surfaced for his annual pre-conference toe dip into the media. Last year he went after Ed Miliband, this year he’s said what every Labour supporter with a brain knows full well:

“Ken’s campaign too often looked like the past rather than the future. And when I saw his remarks about the Jewish community in London in particular, I didn’t just think it was ill advised, I just thought it was wrong. It’s not our politics to try and divide voters into blocks. The success of the Olympics reminds us that London’s greatness and Britain’s greatness is when we come together. And I think he paid a deserved price for some of the errors that he made.”

Nice of him to speak out at the time…

UPDATE: Needless to say Ken’s accomplices in his deceitful campaign are gutted:

Tragic!

UPDATE II: Ken hits back:

          “Jack Straw: Gordon Brown knew he could not do PM job”

          We all bloody knew it. But Straw and others coiuld have done something about it if they had had the cojones.

          • I find myself in the unusual position of agreeing with Ken in that New Labour is a failed project that lost millions of votes. Whatever Labour’s future it is not on those politics.

            That means Ken supports getting rid of Balls, Cooper, Miliband, Harman and all the other scum that spent 13 years enriching themselves and impoverishing the very people they pretend to represent.

            The grass roots Labour party needs to cauterise the B£iar/Brown infestation and return the party’s actions to their very admirable values

          Dougie Alexander would be better off having another go at Miliband before Ed leads Labour to its worst result since 1983. Or are they all waiting until after 2015 to come out and say “I knew he was rubbish all along”?

          Wonderful thing, hindsight.

            An average lead of 8% mid-term… Kinnock and Foot had leads 3 times that size and still lost. Mid-term leads are nonsense. Hague led Blair, Kinnock and Foot both led Thatcher by 25+ points.

            Analysis based on thirty years of polling suggests Miliband will trail by something like 20 points at the next general election.

            Take a look at the answers to supplementary questions, then go out and put some money on Labour getting less than 250 seats at the next election. It could conceivably be much worse than that.

      Ken’s view that ‘New labour cost the party millions of votes’ overlooks one thing, that it increased Labours vote by 5.2 million even if it fell by 5 million, And this doesn’t take into effect that Ken endorsed the greens for the assembly in the 2000 Mayoral election, as a Non member he didn’t even endorse Labour at the 2001 election, then there was Backing independent tower Hamlets mayor Lufthr rahman, Ken has never done anything to get labour votes, even the 2008 and 2012 mayoral elections when he got more votes than when he stood as an independent, resulted in millions coming out to vote agianst him for mayor

      Well, now is your chance to rebrand the whole pile of crap all over again.

      I don’t think much of ed’s labour:the next generation.
      Much too geeky. How about after new Labour? New Labour v2.o? Or ditch the new. It’s been around for bloody ages. Bill gates wouldnt have New Windows.

      Maybe Labour Vista? Something to use while waiting for a proper update? Or Ed Miliband’s Labour. Like Bram Stocker’s Dracula. Gt his name attached to it.
      Or jut initials. The people’s union of socialists or PUS. Socialism of union people. SOUP.

      Or iLab. TUC-L. REDm. eD. EMb. €d Mili€uband.

      Or it might be better to wait a bit. No point in spending all the cash rebranding only to have to do it again in 2015 when Ed Balls deposes him.

    These buffoons at Ken for London including Livingstone himself must have been asleep when Blair won three stunning election victories. Are these people for real ? In addition to the Jewish community he also riled Iranian expats due to his work for Press TV. Remember why Press TV was taken off air in the UK. It is registered and based in London BUT editorially controlled from Tehran by the Iranian regime. Poor Clegg has been ridiculed for his apology on tuition fees. Where’s the apology from Livingstone ? None, because the man is arrogant. Do Miliband and Harriet ‘Yes we Ken’ Har ‘person’ agree with Douglas Alexander ?
