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…


  1. 1
    Ed (i'm not my brothers seat warmer) REALLYBLAND says:

    Feck off peasants

  2. 2
    Kebab Time says:

    I am not a peasant but I don’t lick it

  3. 3
    Steve Miliband says:

    The peasant season has just opened

  4. 4


    That is what Labour is for.

  5. 5
    Please Sir says:

    The odd thing is that as far as I am aware is that not one pleb from Ed’s old Comp has talked to the press about his time there. It’s almost as if he didn’t mix with the lower orders.

  6. 6
    Polly Kettle-On says:

    I wouldn’t mind a young Labour man going intern me (geddit?)

  7. 7
    DZ says:

    I am a fat bastard capitalist in Dudley

    I pay anybody who works for me, because that is the only way it can work

    I have the intelligence to get students from local universities to do “projects” for free but that is wrong

    I know it, they know it, you know it

    Gordon was a cottar.

  10. 10
    Frank Chickens says:

    We need to see Ed’s tax return.

    We need to know that he is “just like us”.

  11. 11

    Whatever happened to the whiter than whiter party?

  12. 12
    Sarah says:

    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?

    That picture – it’s Simple Jack off ‘Tropic Thunder’.

    That’s a very alarming picture Guido. I suspect nose job, teeth fixed, ears pinned, teeth whitened. And of course personality enhancement. (unsuccessful)

  15. 15
    Polly Kettle-On says:

    Come to think of it, our Dear Leader does look like Mr Ed in that picture

    teeth fixed. Was it a job for denture man?

    TOM "how much for a shag luv" WATSON says:

    they turned into the Brown party

    Big Ron says:

    Rather like all the mad mullahs etc that we have ‘welcomed’ in more recent times.

    TOM "how much for a shag luv" WATSON says:

    Well you made a right mess of his nose !

    Fowl Language says:

    Don’t eat pheasant. There’s more meat on a peasant.

  22. 22
    BBC (it's why we exist) says:

    One Nation shall speak unto One Nation.

  23. 23
    Sir William Waad says:

    It’s another of those irregular verbs: I give a great opportunity to an aspiring young person; you have an intern; he cynically exploits the unemployed.

    My Trousers are at the Pawnsbrokers. Again says:

    Is he a rich mong? Looks like one.

  26. 26
    Pawn Sandwich says:

    This will come back to haunt Miliband. If he ever gains high office then thats our relationship with Turkey finished.

    Of course he could always do a Blair and say that Turkey should be part of the EU.

  27. 27
    MB. says:

    I really enjoyed watching Milliband’s expression slowly changing when Nick Robinson asked him last night about his inspiration as he realised he meant Gordon Broon!

    Only 34 more signatures needed to keep the important points of news available for constant perusal:

    jgm2 says:

    I invest, you spend, he borrows.

  30. 30

    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!

    MA Millionaires Anonymous. ‘Hi my names Ed and I’m a millionaire. It all started when Dad died and left me a house in an up and coming area of North London….

  32. 32
    jgm2 says:

    J** thumps Muslim. No news there.

    It won’t inspire too many votes from the religion of p*eace though. Seriously though, Ed being a J** is not going to go unremarked upon by our culturally enriched demographic.

    Perhaps Labour figures that there are not too many ‘swing’ constituencies where the religion of peace holds the balance of voting power but I wouldn’t be so sure if I were Labour. They were already losing plenty of votes to the B&P in a lot of northern seats. The religion of peace might just deliver a few more upsets like they did with George Galloway.

    Moussa Koussa says:


  34. 34
    jgm2 says:

    I think it had already upped and come by the time daddy Miliband died.

  35. 35
    Not ALWAYS biased says:

    I know everyone here loves to attack the bbc and say it’s biased. On the bbc news website homepage, the US debate headline is: “Romney wins US election debate”

  36. 36
    jgm2 says:

    He must have really won for the BBC to come to that conclusion. Was Obama given a three standing counts or knocked out or what?

  37. 37
    jgm2 says:

    If you say so.

  38. 38
    Moussa Koussa says:

    This is Priceless

    “”The papers are all going with Millionaire Miliband this morning”””

    Two links in rattled Guido opening line

    “”The papers ( errrrr The Torygraph ) are all going with Millionaire Miliband ( Link to old Guido thread ) this morning”””

    Not very convincing Guido.

  39. 39
    Pawn Sandwich says:

    And this was the party that portrayed Michael Howard and Oliver Letwin (both J**ish) as flying pigs.

    Labour, mostly a bunch of low quality politicians.

    genghiz the kahn says:

    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?

  41. 41
    Bogeyman says:

    Ed is the only one who understands the underclass. He knows what it’s like to go to school hungry, to wear cardboard insoles, and to own last year’s iPhone.

  42. 42
    Moussa Koussa says:

    Another great week for The Cock:-

    Work Programme charities closing

    Rail fiasco

    Birmingham Pleb non attendance at Birmingham Conference

    …I blame the staff, How very Dave, going to give the staff a good thrashing.

  43. 43
    Popeye says:

    You are all wrong, Ed would be perfect running Obama’s re-election campaign.

  44. 44
    Sir William Waad says:

    Pheasant served in restaurants tends to be under-hung and undercooked. Restaurants lack the facilities to cook meat properly without drying it out and don’t want to expend the time, effort and electricity.

  45. 45
    michael says:

    Pro ‘Israel lobby’ Ed the unpaid Harvard intern was on sabatical from the Treasury at HKS at the same time as Iraqi security thesis student Ibrahim al- ‘dodgy dossier’ was at HKS, just before Iraq….funny that.

  46. 46
    Pawn Sandwich says:

    Always comforting to take advice from a leftie on how to cook pheasant.

  47. 47
    jgm2 says:

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


    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.

  48. 48
    genghiz the kahn says:

    Norman Tebbit has recipes for pheasant.

  49. 49
    genghiz the kahn says:

    Red on Red.

    When Hoover Institution historian Robert Conquest used newly available data from the Soviet Union to update The Great Terror, his account of Stalin’s murderous purges of the 1930s, his publishers asked for a new title. “How about I Told You So, You Fucking Fools?” Conquest suggested.


  50. 50
    Jimmy Saveloy says:

    I should be bloody well hung.

  51. 51
    Dick the butcher says:

    They’ve got you fooled. Although much of their bias is blatant, much is subtle, subliminal if you will. The headline actually is….
    “Romney ‘wins’ US election debate”.

  52. 52
    Edinburgh junkie says:

    Socialists =lying hypocrites.

  53. 53
    The. Savant says:

    I m not a pheasant plucker.

    I m a pheasant plucker s Son.

  54. 54
    The. Savant says:

    Yes but if you eat all the peasant s. what s left. To throw on the fire. On a cold. Winter s evening ??

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.”
