    Pawn Sandwich says:

    No doubt Labour will be sticking it to the “toffs”.
    About time this demonising by Labour of a minority group stopped.

    Oh you are naughty Guido

    Johnny the Adulterer Major has been all over the TV airways recenly, trying to prop up Call me dave. The Currie Fiddler Just so happens to have a book out this week… Called “”My Education, My Father My Story””.

    himindoors says:

    I’m surprised they haven’t tried to airbrush some real world experience in there somewhere, like the summer he flipped burgers in Macdonalds, or flogged psion organisers in Dixons for a christmas job in 1992.
    But no, try to relate to the public with the only thing they can understand, something he did 25 years ago before being sucked into the bubble of politics.
    Relevance = zero

    An Ecuadorian Diplomat says:

    He’s been extradicted to Sweden. The French are getting Assange and you get a teacher who ran away with his pupil and a set of steak knives. Who said diplomacy is dead?

    PK says:

    Milliband senior was a fucking disgrace.

    He found shelter from the Nazis in Britain – after the War he set about trying to dismantle capitalism and Britain’s parliamentary democracy.

    I doubt that leopard’s change their spots.

  12. 12
    The Stilton Eater says:

    Ed Miliband trying to claim he’s normal?

    He grew up in an elitist intellectual household.

    He used a tax dodge to duck paying inheritance tax on his father’s estate.

    He went to Oxford University… and then Harvard.

    He’s never done a day’s work in the real world.

    He even has a stupid haircut and a weird voice.

    He is not normal.

    Does he mention his canny use of the tax laws to ensure that he got a good chunk of his father’s wealth on his death?

    Thought not.

    ed martin says:

    Megaband snr (like other marxists in education (sic) ) proved that one could be chronically wrong and make a decent living out of it

    there’s quite some reflection of that quality across the parliamentary political speculum

    Camilla Parker-Starney says:

    He’s so abnormal he has to tell people he went to a primary school, as if we needed to know this.

    Don’t anthropomorphise the politicians.

    It just makes it harder for people to kill them.

    You start off by writing stories like Beatrix Potter and before you know it you can’t chase foxes.

    Same with this kind of reportage. Politicians (particularly Labour politicians) are opportunistic scum on the make. We should no more worry about what they have to say than we worry about a wasp or a bluebottle before we smash it to pulp with a newspaper.

    This is a sob story worthy of my show.
    Doesn’t matter if you’re any good, just nail the sob and you’re through to boot camp.

    We’ll suss out the wankers there and kick them into touch.

    Call me Ed.

  36. 36
    PitPony says:

    Can Ed explain how he and his brother got to Oxbridge with A level results that would only get our kids a place at an uprated Poly?

    Anything to do with being part of the Lefty Nomenclatura?

  37. 37
    Pawn Sandwich says:

    Well, these things all follow a familiar pattern, demonise the toffs, demonise the bankers etc. Blame someone else.

    The nazis used exactly the same tactics but targeted racial groupings for their propaganda purposes.

    So to me this is the same thing as there are many DECENT toffs out there and there are many DECENT bankers.

    The BBC Fanzine 24 Hour News Channel says:

    Ed Miliband is not as posh as Cameron …he’s actually….posher and was born into the Socialist/Labour Ruling Aristocracy……he didn’t need the boost of going to public school his place at Oxford was already guaranteed as was his place in the party….anybody could do the same even if they went to the usual bog standard London Comprehensive followed by a degree at London Met…….you just have to dream the dream….WE all went to Cambridge or Oxford of course but you have to fool the voters that Ed and us are different to the Tories(we’re not of course)but they’re too stupid having gone through Labour’s State education system to realise that we are actually patronising them……..Vote Labour for a Fairer(?) chance in life……

    jgm2 says:

    I, along with everybody from the local council estate, went to a primary school where the teachers didn’t expect you to learn. They would have liked you to learn but they didn’t expect you to learn. Neither did 95% of my schoolmates. And neither did 95% of their parents.

    Showing any ability was likely to get you marked out as a ‘swot’ and, unless you were handy with your fists, get you a fucking good kicking on a daily basis.

    Miliband kidding on that he experienced ‘working class’ life in his twee Primrose Hill primary school and his ‘comprehensive’ school that has Primrose Hill as its catchment area and his social class A1, university lecturer dad with his social class A1, university lecturer mates and dinner parties. And his assisted entrance scheme to Oxford for the ‘poor and disadvantaged’ children of London.

    Oh aye. Typical working class hero makes good and wants to put something back into society.

    Fucking charlatan.

  42. 42
    jgm2 says:

    Same way he’s trying to kid on he went to a bog-standard comprehensive. His parents knew of some scheme that was available for ‘poor and disadvantaged’ kids in London to overcome the poverty of their circumstances and enrolled ‘em in it.

    If my kids got those kind of ‘A’ Levels with me and the missus kicking around the house to help them with anything they didn’t understand I’d be mortified. But Dave and Ed just played the ‘poor and disadvantaged’ card and Oxford went along with it.

  43. 43
    Polly Toynbee says:

    Such a thing could never happen!

    I read history at St Anne’s College, Oxford, despite having only one A-level.

  44. 44
    Lord Mandelson of Brazil and Tangiers says:

    Vote Labour for a Fairer..

    Surely you mean ‘Vote Labour for a Ferrari’. Or Maserati. I’m not fussy.

  45. 45
    jgm2 says:

    Aye. And then dropped out after one year. Thus depriving a genuine working class kid the lift in life that degree would have given them.

    Right now there is some retired man or woman who never got that chance. Who had to settle for Bristol or Durham. Just because, like Louise Mensch, you thought it would look good on your CV. And then you got bored.

  46. 46
    Pawn Sandwich says:

    So by taking the place of a poor and disadvantaged student, a REAL and POOR disadvantage student lost the opportunity.

  47. 47
    himindoors says:

    You can almost imagine the planning meeting, with 3 or 4 frustrated Olly Reader types sat around a whiteboard with a long list of areas where Miliband could relate to the “common English voter”, all of them crossed out, except SCHOOL, the lowest common denominator.

  48. 48
    jgm2 says:

    Exactly. Two of ‘em. Because Dave used the scheme too. With ‘A’ Levels that spelled ‘DEE’ I think.

    And here they are now. Swanning about the place with the veneer of intelligence that an Oxford PPE bestows. Kidding on they’re some kind of philosophical and intellectual colossus.

    Meanwhile, two kids who could really have used that education, potentially for the national good, are lost to history. And we’re stuck with these incompetent usurpers.

  49. 49
    jgm2 says:

    What the T*ries should do is find some genuine ‘poor and disadvantaged’ kids from London who did apply to Oxford in the years the Milibands hijacked the LEA scheme but were rejected.

    Then compare ‘A’ Levels and outcomes.

    For sure they’ll be able to find dozens of genuine ‘poor and disadvantaged’ Londoners with much better ‘A’ Levels who never got the chance because Miliband snr and the rest of the middle class bedwetocracy kept the scheme well under wraps for themselves. Adults who are now struggling under massive mortgages and fear of job loss because of the financial decisions cheered on by Miliband.

    Fish says:

    The prat should have been sent to the the ‘bog standard’ shithole that I had to go to.

    And he pretends that he has something in common with me?

    BTW: It will be interesting to see if Miliband attends the Marxist (and denier of the Great Terror) Hobsbawm’s funeral. These entryists like to appear quite benign but are likely to come out in their droves for one of their heroes of the revolution.

  51. 51
    Anonymous says:

    Same old rhetoric that they all regurgitate.They know wev’e heard all the other waffle before,Milliband does’nt have to say anything really we have the measure of him he’s proved he can stab you in the back

  52. 52
    blub says:

    Grandad Milliband joined the red army that was invading poland in the 20s after the revolution. After it failed he had to leg it to Belgium

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
