Ed Splits One Nation Into Two

Not quite a comprehensive failure, but Ed’s ‘I’m just like you’ re-branding exercise has failed to convince voters of his one nation credentials. A straw poll by the Daily Politics shows that, even after his speech attacking “posh boy” Dave, 50 percent of people still think the millionaire Primrose Hill-raised Corpus Christi graduate is posh himself. Or as they put it: “the way he comes across, they way he walks and talks, I think suggests posh. But because he’s Labour he doesn’t really want to say that…If I was his dad I’d be disappointed with him”. Hardly a resounding success…

        Its not to do with a politicians wealth.

        Its to do with using your power to award people in your own tax bracket a whopping tax cut, while taking it away from the poorest members of our society.

            Labour – the party that gave millionaires an £80,000 tax allowance for 13 years. Why can’t they be honest and admit that? Have they apologised yet for it or do they think their supporters are so brain dead they won’t notice?

          You’ve evidently forgotten that Labour gave the poorest members of society a 100% tax rise. “I’m going to double income tax for the lowest paid,” bawled Brown in his last Budget, to laud cheers from his fellow Labour MPs. “Hurrah! We’ve clobbered the working class!” they may as well have shouted.

          F*cking tossers, all of them.

          Nobody is going to receive a £40,000 cheque. They are going to confiscate less from some folk, that’s all. If you can’t see the difference between giving somebody some money and refraining from taking it away, you should be happy to be mugged as long as the thief lets you keep the change in your pocket.

          This argument is blatant hypocrisy. For most their 13 years in power the highest rate of tax under Labour was 40%. They put it up to 50% just ONE MONTH before the 2010 election. Thus, even with the planned cut to 45%, it will still be higher under this government than it was for most the time under Labour. So if you want to criticize anyone for “awarding people in your own tax bracket a whopping tax cut” your target should be Labour.

          The top 10% of taxpayers pay 50% of the tax and those 10% include people earning £50,000.

          What is needed is a government that is parsimonious with taxpayers cash rather than one that only knows how to spend it. I have difficulty believing that the coalition can do it; I know for a fact that Labour can’t even start to do it.

          Yes that has sadly to me summed up the Labour party attitudes and why they deliberately messed up immigration. Labour knew that they would never be able to sell the more lunatic socialist policies to enough voters to staty in power. Therefore they decided to import a massive number of those who were either sympathetic to Labour policies or would vote Labour to ensure those benefit checks kept rolling. You don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

    It was tough at The Havistock Hill School. Just being on a hill meant that my pencil kept rolling off my desk. We had to have lessons all morning. I dreaded break because there was a bully in the playground. I only racially abused him and he hit me ! After school I had to go home and avoid the ‘Hampstead Gang’ on one side and ‘The Regent’s Park Gang’ on the other. When confronted I’d defend myself with my huge intellect. I’d hop on a bus to Lord’s Cricket Gound, even there I’d get roughed up by the MCC stewards. Once home I had to sit at the table and quote Marx to Tony Benn. As for David…..he was so right wing I had to nationalise his train set. All this happened to me while David Cameron was being mollycoddled at Eton (probably by a prefect in a boarders’ house).

    One nation? How about four nations split up by labour policies and those split between the law abiding and the criminal classes and the haves and have nots, the rich and the poor, those with a chance and those with no chance, those with a rich background and a head start and those who will never be allowed a chance to move up. His mouth says one thing while his past actions tells a very different story.

    Labour is the party of division, its who they are and what they do, split and divide and show favours and place blame, there is always someone to blame labour tells its favoured minorities, blame the rich and blame those who try hard to better themselves, blame white people who kept other colours down, blame men and blame upbringing and blame patriotism and blame the USA. The only thing labour knows how to do is divide and rule and point the finger.

    Ed, I am a working class lad from a broken home in a Scots council estate. Ok I did work my way into university (when it was a biggish thing) and on into the global professions (Price Waterhouse London). But I have also, sadly unsuccessfully, ran my own business and cared for the disabled and chronicly ill. I have a couple of degrees, professional qualifications and have in my own small way, admittedly unintentionally, inspired several groups of people locally and internationally and received some small but valued peer recognition for it. In addition there is a long track record of me being a pain in the ass in several different fields and things then coincidentally subsequently changing, difficult to prove to anyone not in a position to peek eg the security services, but it is there regardless.

    Now as a working class lad who made good and then found himself back at the hard end of life, tell me, concisely, why I should vote for you?

Quite literally the very second they (Labour) had a state school educated PM and the T*ries a private-school educated PM-in-waiting it was their very first thought.

        Brown could have given it ‘we’re all in it together’ and invoked a blitz spirit but no. Couldn’t wait to split the country into the deserving and the non-deserving.

        Remember this is EXACTLY the same thing the BBC have a go at the Catholic church for, basically turning a blind eye to kiddie fiddlers and it going on on their property.

        There are plenty of BBC types still alive who were in a position to know, there is no reason why plod should not be investigating. If they were aware that potential criminal activity was taking place and they did nothing, then action should be taken against them and the BBC.

        The BBC defence seems to be “it was a long time ago”. That does not matter, we know that kiddie fiddling is very common amongst the lefty liberal luvvie types (again I refer you to operation Ore) and what procedures does the BBC have in place these days.

        Does it run checks against all employees or contractors who work with children for example?

        What procedures does the BBC have in place if allegations of kiddie fiddling taking place on their property are made?

Ed Miliband for all his garbage about immigrants and his family fleeing N*zi*persecution(g;lossing over his Dad’s Marxist background) is no different in essence to either Cameron or Osborne….the Milibands were born into a socialist/labour ruling elite…..as kids they rubbed shoulders with leading Labour/Socialist figures and were eased into Oxford and the Labour Party through connections(no different to the Tories).Ed says he went to a Comprehensive so what…Haverstock is not an inner city sink school but would be regarded on par with a grammar school by any measuure in the 60’s. Miliband is as wealthy as Cameron but is afraid to admit .

    So ALL this rubbish yesterday being spouted by Miliband was just that….complete and utter nonsense and rank hypocrisy.

    The fact is that Labour caused the mess and Miliband(and Balls)were at the centre of it as SpAd s to Brown….and as for “One Nation Labour”…the Labour Party is the most divisive and class conscious political party ever more class conscious than the Tory Party…so no more bilge about “One Nation Labour” either…MIliband may have impressed the Conference Hall, the BBC and Polly Tonbee and other gullible fools in the left leaning media but the people he needs to convince who are not part of Labour’s Client State are very far from convinced by his “Life of Ed” clap trap
