Multi-Miliband?
Ed Refuses To Answer BBC Questions on Wealth

Ed Miliband’s dubious lines about David Cameron getting a £40,000 tax cut unravelled this morning as he crumbled under pressure from Charlie Stayt on the usually light ‘n easy BBC Breakfast when asked about his own worth. In order to qualify for the cut Cameron would have to have an income of over a million pounds. Ed claims not to be a top rate taxpayer, yet repeatedly refused to say what he is worth. Could it be that he’s a multi-millionaire?

There over 300,000 millionaires in the UK, of which just 6,000 have an income of over a million and will be keeping £40,000 from next April. No one can seriously believe that David Cameron or Ed Miliband fall into the latter category, however with accumulated inheritances, property and generous Westminster pensions there is little doubt they are in the former. People in £1.6 million pound glass houses should not throw stones, Ed…

    Ed is an example of the ” something for nothing” culture, he has done nothing of value but has been rewarded.

    And if you think stealing half of someones wages is “far” then donate half your wages to the state!

    Miliband can jog on!

    Look at his London property portfolio paid for by the taxpayer.

    Look at his inheritance tax dodge on his Marxist Fathers house.

    Of course he is a millionaire.

    It is about time he was asked for his tax return & asset wealth.

    The fact that Ed’s dad was an illegal immigrant, entering the UK with forged papers appears to have been airbrushed from several articles including his Wiki entry, self edited I guess.

    Daddy wrote set texts for students, extolling the virtues of socialism, trying to influence others to back schemes to stifle private enterprise, whilst enjoying his royalties.

    Must be great being a child on speaking terms with old Eric Hobsbawn and all the other apologists for the murdering scum who followed Marx, Lenin and Stalin.

    Are you so dense Guido

    On your figures

    6000 who earn 1 Mill a year.

    So 6000 millionaires WILL get a £40,000 increase in their income

    errrr, so £240 Million of tax payers cash WILL be going to millionaires..

    Glyn H says:

    People from the Brown Treasury only know how to debauch other peoples money. But it is odd when both Miliband and his father only ever draw on funds from the state yet end up in fine, expensive houses.

    jgm2 says:

    Ed might not be a top-rate tax-payer. But then I bet his brother, with income of reportedly half a million quid isn’t either. They’ll both be using the same scam as Livingston or Brown or Blair. Fake charities, personal service companies paying tax at 20% on dividends.

    Usual drill.

    Wicked and mendacious and divisive.

    Looked at some of the CiF comments about the ‘40,000 tax cut’ – those fuckers are literally insane. The thought that such imbeciles can vote makes me sick to the pit of my stomach.

    Should use the entire interview, it was a train wreck. Ed was clearly prepared for the usual easy ride interview from BBC Breakfast… he was not prepared for the line of questioning from Charlie Stayte. Ed however wasn’t disappointed with the easy ride interview from Eammon Holmes on Sky News shortly after.

    Why is it always forgotten that the rise from 40% to 50% was only implemented in Labour’s last months as a poisonous legacy for the Tories?12+ years at 40% was far more generous to ‘millionaires’ than 45% jsy starting now.

    He should stop pretending to be an ordinary man of the people – he is very wealthy – & not by contributing to growth in the real economy.

    He is a parasite who has gained his wealth through taking every opportunity to enrich himself at the taxpayers expense – the very poorest taxpayers have paid for Ed Milibands accumulated wealth.

    Look at his property portfolio – then look at his employment record.

    Fair in your book?

    jgm2 says:

    Using Labour maths they were actually ‘giving’ ‘em 80,000 quid a year for the entire 13 years. Including for two full years after Brown’s ponzi economy finally crashed.

    A naked political trap. Nothing at all to do with raising money or ‘making the rich pay’. Just pure political malevolence.

    Actually, those 6,000 people are people like Lewis Hamilton, who lives in Monaco, Richard Branson – all assets offshore, Jimmy Carr – offshore tax dodge etc.

    So, of the people in the UK who earn a million a year, VERY FEW of them pay any tax at all, never mind paying 50% tax. The only people who get relief from this taxation are the directors of NHS trusts, the BBC, and quangos, and some senior managers/CEOs.

    It was explained to Crash Gordon that his tax would not raise any additional revenue, he did it anyway because “being harsh on the rich” sends the right message to the unwashed.

    Meanwhile, almost every MP is worth a million due to the house-flipping and expenses fraud during the Liebour years.

    The Central Scrutinizer says:

    Ed and David Milliband are both ‘red-diaper babies’ – indoctrinated with left-wing ideology from birth. This is why neither of them will ever win the position of Prime Minister. Their advisors well know that ‘public opinion’ in the UK, although often being somewhat left of centre on some issues, it is never marxist. Marxism is only the ‘operating system’ of a small band of elites, idiots, radicals and academics (and their doe-eyed students).

    Yes, they have made great in-roads into the institutions, and are well versed in how to lie to and manipulate the public, however, their achilles heel is their ideology (and how it is so at odds with the public) and their own hypocrisy (which as this video clip shows, is so easily laid bare).

  57. 57
    lojolondon says:

    Only afraid of the truth – that is all.

    Do you really think he would not have done it if he could??

    Along with the union leaders, Labour leaders will never, ever, ever admit their wealth.

    You can bank on that.

    BBC Oct. 2010: Ed Miliband has said he will match coalition ministers by taking a five per cent pay cut. The current salary for the post of Leader of the Opposition is £139,355 – which will be reduced to £132,387.

    He looked like like a frightened rabbit in that interview.

    Blah blah, kids opportunity families future, empty waffle…

    I think that Ed’s Prime Ministerial chances died at 7:05 in that clip.

  68. 68
    jgm2 says:

    It’s not that they can’t grasp the difference. It’s that they know the majority of voters aren’t paying enough attention to grasp the difference.

    And this works for both sides.

    The T*ries know that if folk realised that the debt was still ballooning out of control they’d wonder what all this bollocks was about ‘cuts’. Even though most of the voters, with their own personal behaviour, understand that real cuts have to be made. Fuel consumption is down by 10% since 2008. That’s an awful lot less journeys being made. An awful lot less pub lunches being bought when they don’t go wherever they might have gone. An awful lot less admission fees to whatever attraction etc etc.

    The public gets it. They understand the need for cuts. They understand that we’ve individually and as a nation been living beyond our means.

    It suits Labour to confuse the two because even though the deficit is reducing the debt is still increasing. So they can muddle the two ‘accidentally’ depending on what lie they’re trying to plant.

    Miliband should stop claiming credit (if there is any credit to be gained from your father running away) for what he had no control over and start apologising for what he did have control over.

    And then, when he’s finished apologising, he should find a nice stout rope and hang himself. As should Balls. And the rest of the fuckers.

    Best interview by BBC Breakfast for ages. Its ok when Eds preaching to the converted but when pushed on basic policy he waffles on and on. What is becoming very striking about Labour at this conference is how they have swiped many of the Coalition`s initiatives i.e. what they are doing right here and now and have reworded or rebranded tory ideas as their own. On the 50p tax question I have never seen a politician flounder like he did. I never meant it like that – oh yeah pull the other one Ed. One Nation = We Are All In it Together, doesn`t it Ed?

    This is the outward manifestation of the daily contortions and denials they put their own minds through in order to sound like true believers in the socialist golden dawn, while being on the take n’ make at the slightest opportunity. Their facial muscles distort in parallel with the twisted mind that controls them.

    When I see pictures of Eric Hobsbawm I see the proof of this theory in extremis.

    It could also explain the ‘forceps features’ of the Miliband juniors. Ed’s right eye is about inch higher than the other for Chris’s sake, he looks like a walking talking advert for Kai’s Power Goo.

Once he/she does, all the questions of how that contract was procured enter the picture– who bunged whom, who shook down whom, who’s got a few bob stashed away someplace that haven’t been reported, you know, that sort of thing. Start a public-sector programme, hey presto! you’ve got someone there to cash in as a vendor or contractor. How’s about a two-tier business tax system, taxing income received from the public-sector at a higher rate than purely-private transactions? Cut out the middle-man and just withhold at source.

    Labour have got into the habit of lying.

Then, when Gordon Brown became desperate to cling on to power, he lied every week at PMQs with the choice at the next election mantra being ‘Labour investment or Tory cuts’. Now they lie and seem to believe the lies. They can’t see that wealth and income are seperate (neither can the Lib-Dems).

We pay for pointless wars, compensation to Gitmo bay scumbags or prisoners who dont like to slop out.

    Yeah but those on high incomes already get massively taxed (and not just through income tax) so that law of diminishing returns sets in. Tax take may be higher on a lower rate of 45p-though still far too high.

    True enough. But ignorance of business is worst among Labour MPs, of whom only 9% have any experience of business.

    and if Little Ed shouts too loud David will just get his Onion pals to launch a leadership contest , and replace the unconvincing little turd
    It would be really amusing to watch a parliament where the PM is never in attendance , due to “speaking commitments”elsewhere !

    It’s actually fucking scary that a wannabe PM was owned by Charlie of Brekkie TV.

    PM? Milibland couldn’t run a fucking bath, let alone a country!

    Hello Charlie

    Well done for your approach towards Mr Milliband on the morning show regarding his wealth. I was leaning toward Mr Milliband and his labour party as I felt he was taking the right aopproach toward the banks and the economy however, due to him not admitting to his wealth I feel he has lost the nation which he wants to unite as one. Hmmmmm!!!!

    Malcolm who is very disappointed in labour.

    Well, as your mate Jimmy said in #18 in this very thread: “all within the rules.”

    So what’s your problem, then?

    I certainly would not employ Chukka Brick on my board.
    His knowledge of business is less than I knew at 15, and I was working at a real job then.

    9%?
    Is it that high?
    Historically it has never been above 20% which includes the union bubble.

    Labour Placemen Charity Leaders (LPCL) says:

    Like us poor charities pulling out of the government’s Work Scheme or going broke because of it.
    Toady Programme BBC pushed our case this morning with Jimmy the Red Naughty ripping into the Minister on why we were going broke.
    At one stage the Minister had the temerity to imply that we were badly managed – Jimmy fought our case vigorously as this is on dangerous ground.

    Every Marxist leader from Mao, to Stalin, to PolPot claims to speak for the people, but lives in luxury, makes his friends and family rich, and attacks those who work hard and succeed.

    His speach could have been given by that other socialist Mr Hitler.

    darth vader says:

    Red Ed must have put in a lot of time learning that “One Britain” speech and did a good job.

    All this stuff about did banks, did he not work under and advise twat mcbroon in the treasury on how to train wreck an economy?

    It all sounds great until he is asked questions he has not had scripted by his advisors, the muppet couldn’t even run his own house let alone the country.

    I fear for the BBC presenter who made him squirm, how dare he question a member of the labour party like that?

    Geoffrey Brooking says:

    Documents from the Land Registry show that the house that Red Ed shares with and in the name of his wife is worth £2.3 million.

    That’s £700,000 more than they paid for it and even taking into account a £400,000 mortgage comfortably makes him Ed Millionaire.

    What’s more, the £400,000 is borrowed from the same banks (Barclays) who’s former boss (Bob Diamond) he vigorously attacked.

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.”
