Ed Miliband’s Today Programme Muddle

We knew that already…


So that went well then…


  1. 1
    Vicki Milliband says:

    Yes but no but yes but yes but no but…….

    He’s a bit like a dog chasing his tail.

    Sunny Jim says:

    And this muppet is possibly the next PM? FFS…

  4. 4
    Quiet Bat Person says:

    Ed Miliband still has a blank piece of paper.

    Even my daughter would have crayoned something on it by now.

  5. 5
    Anonymous says:

    I like Ed, he’s pleasantly confused.

  6. 6
    Mike Litorus says:

    Eds muddle is that he thinks he is a politician.

  7. 7
    A Miliband says:

    Why am i saying this?

  8. 8
    Battsby says:

    Heard it in the car. It was HILARIOUS Mr Blank Sheet with his ‘Edenoids’ using many words to say absolutely nothing whatsoever, but in the style of Tony Blair, innit, gov? Brilliant comedy pilot – can’t wait for the series!

  9. 9
    B Miliband says:

    Why am i asking myself outloud?

  10. 10
    C Miliband says:

    Why am I a tit?

  11. 11
    D Miliband says:

    You are only keeping my seat warm until after the election bro.

  12. 12
    gramma says:

    Ed Miliband. The Seargent Shulz of Socialism.
    ” I know nothing “

  13. 13
    Sandra in Accounts says:

    When these EU fanatics state “leaving the EU will harm Britains economy” why are their no MSM journalists to counter them & ask, in detail, why?

    The German auto industry alone – Britain is a multi million pound account for them every year – there is no way they want a significant percentage of their export business subject to British trade tariffs if the EU imposed trade tariffs on us.

    Referendum. In or out.

    Or just join & vote UKIP.

  14. 14
    Can't use me old moniker says:

    Or like a dog licking his own balls!

  15. 15
    Ratsniffer says:

    This twit will be voted into power by greedy public sector workers and other socialist “clients groups”. The country ruined again by a self serving fanbase installed by Blair and Broon and fed from the taxpayer’s nipple.

  16. 16
    Cedric Milliband says:

    Sorry, our kids a bit of a mong when it comes to politics.

  17. 17

    This country is just so fucked !

    Fucked if clueless Dave stays in power
    Fucked if little Ed gets in

    God help us !

  18. 18
    Swiss Bob says:

    43% would vote for this tit.

    There is no hope.

  19. 19
    The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

    Delighted to hear the interviewer not letting him off the hook (for a change) Millitwit was talking utter cobblers. When he wasn’t talking cobblers he was evading the question. If I was interviewing him for a job and he answered questions in that manner I would have rapidly got to the “Thank you for coming we’ll let you know.” stage.

  20. 20
    Blankety Blank, Super Match game. says:

    Ed’s blank sheet of paper never went away then.

  21. 21
    Peter says:

    The one that gets me is “leaving the EU would harm inward investmen to Britaint”.

    Britain is a dynamic place to invest – always has been since we invented capitalism.

    Leaving the EU will not change that.

    Do we really need to be lectured by recycled Est European socilists & Cubanesque Amwerican Presidents on world trade?

    We practically invented world trade.

  22. 22
    Gordon Brown says:

    And me. I’m good with crayons

  23. 23

    Breaking News

    Camelot to double the price of lottery tickets

    now i thought the Gov still owned it ?

    So we’re still “All in this together”

    where the fuck has all the money gone ?

  24. 24
    Danny La Rue says:

    Of course Ed is Pro Euro and pro greater integration, its socialism by the back door. The sooner we make our minds up about being in or out the better!

  25. 25
    WVM says:

    So the son of a communist immigrant – who’s father helped enslave Eastern Europe by fighting for Stalin in the Red Army, is tellin the British that we eed more EUSSR?


    With the public sector voter base, the immigrant voter base & the welfare junkie client groups the only way we will be free of the EU & Labour is with armed struggle.

  26. 26
    The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

    I laughed at Millitwit’s statement that leaving the EU would send the British economy over a cliff. So where is the economy now, exactly? And who put us there?

  27. 27
    bergen says:

    All those Oxford PPE degrees and not a clue between them. It would be better if we had leaders with at least some prior experience of working in the real world.

  28. 28
    Archer Karcher says:

    Silly Mili has nothing to say, until he’s been told what to say by his paymasters.

  29. 29
    Mornington Crescent says:


    Unlike many commenters and commentators – including on here – I don’t believe Schnorbitz has got a chance of winning.

    It’s easy to knock the Gov halfway through one of the toughest mandates in living memory – which is why our lazy MSM do it, ‘coz they’re lazy.

    Come election time, people won’t vote for an infantile, narcissistic little J, surrounded by hasbeens and retreads from the crew that led us into this mess in the first place.

    But that doesn’t give Cameron a reason to piss about as he is.

    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    Labour do better in the polls when they keep militwit out of the media spotlight.

    Everytime he opens his mouth in public one is reminded that this was the naive schoolboy who made a pig’s ear of climate change under gormless gordon and has as much idea about politics as I do of aeronautical engineering.

  33. 33
    Archer Karcher says:

    Aye, you are that Gordon, who could ever forget your Godron Bronwen letter?

  34. 34
    Spartacus says:

    only one party offereing an in or out vote.

    all the others are offering a looser / more cuddly / slightly less subserviant / and similar referendum.

    wonder why UKIP is riding high in the polls

  35. 35
    Hang The Bastards says:

    Just another treacherous wanker

  36. 36

    Miliband minor is not confused regarding Marxism, he loves that.

    my living memory is longer than yours by the sound of it.

  38. 38
    Sandra in Accounts says:

    Have you noticed the BBC never ask a Europhile to justify such statements.

    Yet every detail of a sceptics deckllarations are picked over with forensic science.

    The BBC fails on an hourly basis now – fails to show any imartiality. Every platform is geared up for the propaganda tsunami of anti-UKIP bile.

    Welcome to East Germany circa 1971.

    +1000 – it is infuriating the Euro quislings are never held to account for their stupid statements.

  41. 41
    Spartacus says:

    yes there is hope – vote UKIP

  42. 42
    Muddled Miliband says:

    …And he wants immigration that’s “fair for everybody”.

    That’s one in the eye for those campaigning for unfairness.

    Miliband is to clarity what Prescott is to diction.

    where the fuck has all the money gone ?

    Ever heard of the Olympic games and Sebastian Coe?

  44. 44
    Mike Hunt says:

    He will be when UKIP split the vote, just like 2010 only much worse.

  45. 45
    Tardkiller says:

    yes, cos they’ll get enough MPs with their 3% of the national vote to erm.. oh.

  46. 46
    Archer Karcher says:


    The EU is a contracting market and will be for decades, because of the job destroying ‘progressive’ policies of it’s politburo.

    We have to free ourselves from it’s collectivist idiocy and strike out back into the world market place under our own rules of mutual trade and co-operation.

    We’ll sink with the EU if we remain chained to it’s anti-free market, pro-rigged market stupidity.

  47. 47
    Mike Hunt says:

    But nobody would vote for them – the ‘people’ demand nice looking photogenic politicians, and then moan that they have no substance or experience.

    Elections are not a beauty competition, as the electorate of Hull East know very well.

    Grockler says:

    Ed Miliband was useless. Labour might as well have sent a toilet brush to be interviewed as it would come back smelling better than this.

    And am I annoyed when he asks himself questions? Yes I am.

  51. 51
    E Miliband says:

    Oh, it’s me again. Where am I?

  52. 52
    Vote UKIP says:

    Now that UKIP are above the Tories in the European election polls surely it is the Tories who are splitting the UKIP vote.

  53. 53
    Archer Karcher says:

    It would be even more interesting if the rozzers actually did their job and arrested some more of the thieves in Westminster. I mean, it’s not as if you don’t know the looters are at it, is it?

  54. 54
    Mornington Crescent says:

    True – but I’m quite old enough to remember Michael Foot (raised in the same salons of Islington) being further ahead of Margaret at this stage of the cycle and certainly old enough to remember that berk Kinnochio being ahead of Major.

  55. 55
    M says:

    UKIP MPs say they want a referendum but remember they are MPs , and MPs are the real beneficiaries of the EU .
    Can you think of a group of MPs who thought they could say things outside of power then realise the reality within power & change the tune . Or do they really want a headline that get the in Westminster to then conform with the rest ?

  56. 56
    Mornington Crescent says:


  57. 57
    R Swiper says:

    Or Ed Balls! Tother

  58. 58
    Postal Vote says:

    Miliband, Labour, Guardian and Beeb will argue in favour of staying in EU based on current agreements, prompted by the expectation that the EU will tear conservatives apart and see conservative voters drift to UKIP. The voters abandoning conservatives for UKIP is an enormous gift to labour given first-past-the-post as long as lib dems don’t lose too many seats.

    The EU debate may be Miliband’s biggest gift and help him enter Nr 10! Expect Mili to shout continuously that EU debate will put UK jobs at risk.

    Well unfortunately(or fortunately depending on your point of view)Dave is doing a really fantastic job of ensuring Miliband will be the occupant of No10 on the morning of 8 May 2015.

    Now is NOT the right time for an in/out referendum or to answer questions on what Labour would do as the less they say the better the chances of them winning the 2015 election

  67. 67
    Jeffrey Bernard says:

    Ed Miliband operates on the basis of one over-arching principle: opposition. This principle means that he feels obliged to oppose things he agrees with (such as asking for the repatriation of powers or a more flexible EU) and inevitably paints himself into a corner of pretending there are distinctions and differences where none exist.
    He is, in short, an unprincipled, opportunistic and dishonest f*ckwit.
    To take the biscuit, he seems to oppose giving the British people the opportunity to express a democratic view as to continued membership of the EU on the basis that – in his view – the result could seriously damage the UK. An “out” vote on a referendum would not do half the damage which a Miliband/Balls victory at the next election would do, but I do not hear anyone suggesting that the next election should be cancelled in order to protect us from the downside …

  68. 68
    Jeffrey Bernard says:

    There is nothing pleasant about Miliband.

  69. 69

    Snotrocket says:

    It was the sort of interview where you just wanted to cover your eyes! The question, surely, is if this interview was prepared for – and it was – and if Miliband had been coached on his answers – and you know he was – what the f*ck would he be like if the interview had been spontaneous???

    Who can forget the time Ed answered 6 different questions with the same answer, it was only last year. The man is an embarassment, and the union who swung it for him should be ashamed of themselves, what is their motivation we ask ourselves ?

    They arent MPs, the are MEPs . UKIP doesnt have any MPs. It will take them many years to muster a majority in the HOC. I cant see Nigel loosing his £1,000,000 a year expenses either ! where on earth would the moron earn that sort of money in real life ?

    Complete disaster – unlike many commenting on here I’m left of centre (cue hostility) but Miiliband and Ball are complete and utter twats. He thought he was Nick Robinson with his ask himself a question style, had no answers to anything and was utterly hopeless. Once the Romanian hordes arrive I’ll be voting UKIP if only to send a message to our cosy political masters that enough is enough.

    Fishy says:

    Miliband was utterly, utterly shocking. And this c.unt thinks that he could be prime Minister?

    What commentators seem to forget, and despite all of Cameron’s current difficulties, is that as the election draws closer this weird twat will have to come out from behind the rocks and be exposed to scrutiny by the electorate.

    What a complete and utter fu.ckuing useless big headed tosser he is.

    Agreed. China and India are the emerging markets. The sclerotic, dysfunctional, undemocratic EU is riddled with protectionism, mechantilism, cronyism and corruption. all symptoms of the cancer which is Socialism. The Euro has proved to be a strait-jacket for the weaker economies, allowing unelected, unrepresentative apparatchiks from Brussels to run Nations against the will of the people. If we’re going to sup with these people, let it be with a very long spoon.

    In the six recent by-elections, 15,074 votes were cast for the party, out of that total electorate of 461,251. This means that the average poll is a tiny 3.3 percent of the electorate prepared to turn out to vote for ukip.

    Syriza in Greece polled 4.5% in 2009 elections.

    That is why the political establishment troughers are terrified of UKIP… They know their greedy snouts will be removed from the EUs ample teat of unaudted cash.

    If Syriza can do it, then UKIP can.

    By having good old Jim “When we win the election” Naughtie as the interviewer it was a sure bet Ed would be given a soft ride. Naughtie just another of the card carrying comrades in the BBC. It’s so transparent it’s pitiful.

    Compare this interview with James Landale who stood in for another comrade Andrew “I did not father the love child after all and cancelled my super injunction” Marr on Sunday. Miliband was on the ropes because Landale challenged what he said.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
