Ed Not So Intern Aware

The papers are all going with Millionaire Miliband this morning, as the fine details of Tuesday’s speech begin to unravel. It’s also worth noting how Ed pledged to “crack down” on unpaid internships in Manchester. Just who are these evil predators who don’t pay their exploited young staff?

Guido is sure an upstanding paragon of virtue such as the New Statesman would never offer unpaid positions, and with all that union gold Political Scrapbook can surely afford to fork out for more than the odd lunch. It would be pretty bad if, say, the Guardian offered ethnic minority kids work without pay, and Intern Aware-backing Left Foot Forward would have to pay their own interns, right? And what about two-faced Chuka? Guido is still waiting to hear whether Labour HQ pay their interns. Ed needs to look a bit closer to home…

    Why did the Milibands and the Hobsbawms all settle in the UK?

    They obviously hate the place and want to destroy the freedom, heritage and culture here.

    Why did not want to live in the Soviet utopia they preached about here?

    Is Ed the Manchurian candidate? Agent of a foreign power and ideology?

      Uncle Eric, please, please tell me again the story how the heroic staff from the State Tractor Station held off the Kulaks until Yagoda and the NKVD arrived in the nick to time to liquidate the counter revolutionaries.

      Grandad, how many of Piłsudski Legion did you shoot?

        I admit that I had no idea who ‘Yagoda’ was so I googled him. Loving the last paragraph…

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genrikh_Yagoda

        Yagoda was shot soon after the trial as were 3,000 of his NKVD supporters. His successor and former deputy Yezhov ordered the guards to strip Yagoda naked and beat him for added humiliation just before his execution. Yezhov himself would suffer exactly the same treatment at the order of his successor and former deputy, Lavrenti Beria, before dying by the same executioner (NKVD Chief Executioner Vasili Blokhin) just two years later.

        Lovely people. Super ideology. No wonder Hobsbawm and Miliband snr were such big fans.

    I have seen Blue Labour now becoming Darker Blue Labour, the hypocrisy from this closet [ and open ] Tory Party would make the founding fathers of Labour turn in their graves. I expect the Shadow Secretary to the Treasury will be having 6 unpaid nannies [ workfare of course ] come March to equal her number of unpaid interns. Gives a whole new meaning to the programme “Who Do They Think They Are ” One promise Darker Blue Labour WILL keep is Welfare Cuts in 2015!

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
