Who Wants to Be a Mili-onaire?

Awkward Ed’s inability to answer the million pound question yesterday hasn’t gone unnoticed.

The Telegraph reports that:

“Ed Miliband found it easy enough to criticise David Cameron’s “millionaire” status, but when questioned about his own personal wealth, the Labour leader struggled to find an answer.”

While the Mail piles in:

“The morning after his widely-praised conference speech, Mr Miliband was forced to defend claims the Prime Minister would personally benefit from a ‘tax cut for millionaires’ but refused to discuss his own levels of personal wealth.”

As seen here yesterday. You’re either in front of Guido…

    Trouble is, he doesn’t understand the difference between income and wealth. Not a bad start for a potential prime minister.

    The Mail talks about his “widely-praised speech”. Really? They must have heard something different from the shallow, vacuous, self-centred and policy-free one that the rest of us endured.

    Frank Chickens says:

    Given Millionaire Milibands elitist status as a cosseted member of Londons immigrant left wing glitterati, is anyone surprised that he does not know he is a millionaire?

    Money means very little to those who accept it as a given.

    The Miliband family as a whole are incredibly wealthy by any standards, and I hope the Tories highlight this at every opportunity.

    They should also highlight that Miliband cares nothing for the mess he, Balls and Brown left behind – not his money afterall.

  10. 10

    Why doesn’t he just admit that he is a millionaire along with several other shadow ministers.It will just become another distracting issue rather than meeting it head on.Like the majority of MP’s,they all evade direct questions and are mostly hypocrites.

    question. How can you be cautioned for fraud “By abuse of position ” ( as a Cllr) yet the council claim it had nothing to with his work as Councillor?

    Look let’s be clear millionaire staus only applies to Conservative votes. That means that the likes of Miliband D & E, the Blairs, Mandelson, the Kinnocks, Shaw, Harman etc are excluded. Please don’t ask this question again because it just isn’t fair.

    Why are the Tories so feeble in attacking the oppsition on their weak points?

    Hypocrisy is a massive faultline running through the Labour front bench, yet the soft idiots on the Government benches never land a punch.

    Bloody Liberals the lot of them, not a fight in one of them.

  17. 17
    jgm2 says:

    Exactly. Just as they wilfully ‘accidentally’ get deficit and debt ‘mixed up’. So they’ll talk about ‘record debt’ in an annual context or ‘record deficit’ in a cumulative context.

    Or talk about 0.1% ‘growth’ and declaring the end of recession while ignoring the fact that it was bought by borrowing 20% of GDP.

    Rigging the ONS figures was a key plank of Labour policy. How else could they rig inflation to justify record low interest rates. Or immigration figures to justify importing more Labour voters? Or indeed rigging anything at all to justify whatever imbecility had popped into their idiot skulls.

    The guy they brought in initially at the ONS quit in disgust at the politicisation of what is supposed to be a reliable, independent service.

  51. 51

    So…, the point is?

    it is or it isn’t worth ‘X’ ?

    And if it is, doesn’t that make Miliband a ‘millionaire?’

    Could he not happily borrow £x00,000 from the bank against this asset?

    Man is a total predator and needs 1000% tax. And that’s just according to himself.

    Quite so. Yet many of the same fuckers who are being kept in their over-valued homes by lowest-in-history interest rates having mortgaged themselves to the hilt are the ones giving it ‘we own the banks – they should be made to pay’.

    And then to top it off the labour leader used lies and sleight of hand in his speech not to mention out and out class warfare whilst saying at the same time he wanted to promote One Nation. Talking out of both sides of his mouth at the same time!!

    Not only did Labour prerssure the ONS into revising growth figures, they repeatedly pre-released partial ONS data (on crime, if I remember correctly) so that they could get in first with some positive spin om figures that turned out to be poor or at bet inconclusive.

    Let's Get Real says:

    smoggie @ 12:51 pm: The “equity” in your home is a function of what remains after all debt on the property is extinguished upon sale. It’s an illusory figure at any time before then. If I own shares which go up in value, they’re no good to me unless (a) they pay a dividend and/or (b) I have a stop-loss to get out when the share-pr!ce goes south again. It was the foolish idea that borrowing against the value of their house represented some sort of “dividend” that got people to do it. Had they put those funds into something that produced cash money in excess of the interest needing to be paid, you could almost excuse them– but if they spent it on anything else, after awhile all they would have is a house that, should it go down in value, you cannot stop-loss very easily on to protect your investment, and no cash money should you even be able to sell but your house is underwater. Fat lot of good a million-quid house is going to do them if they can’t get a million quid for it. It’s only a million-quid house, in your illustration, if anybody out there is willing to pay them that figure. And believe me, there’s a shitload of million-quid houses that used to be two-million-quid houses.

    It’s success they hate.

    England has been a wellspring of prosperity and freedom for 400 years. The wealthiest, free countries of the world are basically the ones which inherited our legal/political system and culture. That cultural inheritance has been heavily abused for a few decades now by the encroachment of government and the accompanying growth of unsympathetic immigration and entitlement culture, but still the Anglo model is pre-eminent.

    Can’t have that, can we lefties. Better everyone be poor, than someone get rich improving the lives of millions. Of course, they are more than happy to seize looted wealth and the effects of success, mistakenly presuming this grants them the cause of it, in the meantime.

    Strange argument. It’s not an illusory figure, it’s an estimated figure. The fact that you won’t know it’s exact worth until you liquidate it doesn’t mean it isn’t worth anything. Seems to me you are confusing the issue with the fact that property prices have fallen but where’s the relevance there? Nevertheless it remains that you cannot ignore your property porftolio as being part of your net worth. Unless you’re a socialist politician of course. And I’m not sure what all that stop loss bollocks is about unless you’re trying to sound like you know something about investment.

    I think Hattie meant to say that “her party is emboldened and has a FARTING chance of returning to power.

    In fact the only power they will see for the next 10 years will be switching the lights on and off at Milwank Towers.

    Their cock ups – not the Tories.

    Seems to be the case. I struggle to understand their mindset.

    Yup. And when the voters get a bit clever import some more to make up for the lost ones. Good old Labour, a disaster every time they try to govern.

    If your house is worth a million pounds you are a millionaire and submariner George is going to give you a £40,000 handout next April. That is the Liebor propaganda.

    We know its not true but propaganda must.

    Well you don’t, and neither do I for that matter. But the LibDems certainly intend to do that if their proposed mansion tax is anything to go by.

    Breaking News. When interviewed on Anglia Tonight about the Corby by election. Ed dropped his, 40K cheque from DC to all millionaires line. He has reworded it to anyone earning over a million a year. Still not right though as people earning over a million will probably being paying more in tax because of other changes to the tax system. Still doesn`t answer the question, What`s Ed really worth?

    Now I know why Milliband and Labour did not oppose the Osbourne tax cut to 45p in the Parliamentary motion back in March. They all abstained (except for 21, who will no doubt pay the price)

    Let’s see the Labour Party publish the household incomes and net worth of the whole Shadow Cabinet and ditto for the Tories.

    There won’t be much difference.

    How many houses do Tony & Cherie own again?

    And for all but a month of the last Labour Government, the top rate of tax was only 40p. GB put it up to 50p to dig a trap for the Tories.

    The perch that Dead Ed made last week was not good it was awful and the BBC, s Radio 4 swing voters interviewed just after the speech used the terms poor, repetitive, shallow, untruthful, in total the speech got five thumbs down. Add mine and it makes six !

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.”
