No Policy in Miliband’s “Major Speech on the Economy”

Ed Miliband will make a speech on Thursday that Labour spinners have trailed as one to watch. The Staggers dutifully report that “the Labour leader will make a major speech on the economy, outlining his party’s priorities ahead of the Budget on 20 March”. Rather awkwardly though, party foghorn Christine Quigley has let the cat out of the bag. The Labour hack turned Edelman lobbyist has been emailing colleagues in an attempt to drum up sympathetic attendees from the public affairs world to come along to the speech:

“Ed Miliband is going to make a ‘major’ speech on the economy on Thursday. It won’t have any new policies in it, but the plan is for Labour to release two or three big economic policies over the next couple of months.”

Quig, the cat’s out the bag!

        Labour already have an economic policy, it’s called waste all the money, borrow even more, give as much as possible to immigrants and destroy the country. Oh, it;s the same as last time!

          No one mentioned labia you fucking twat, its 2013 and the blue jackboot is currently stamping your mongified face, care to stop licking Anytime soon? Idiot.


          • Laughing hangman says:

            I despise scrounger scumbags, waste of blood organs and oxygen. Their breathing should be taxed like their bedroom. No money NO oxygen.

        Scrounger Scumbags, You obviously want to waste as much money on paying other people’s money to lazy, idle, useless people to sit on their fat lazy useless waste of space arses as possible.

        I think if you have an economy which takes money off people who work and give that stolen money over to other people to pay them to not work, then you will have an economy which will very quickly descend into a massive over burdened and over indebted pile of shite, which is exactly what we do have after 15 years of left wing economics.

        Cameron and Osborne have continued on from where labour left off and this policy was one of the very very few sensible policies that this coalition had tried to implement.

        It was NOT labour camp economics. Any attempt to falsely label it so is grossly offensive and racist.

        It was giving young people who had no experience of real work, some real actual experience in return for the money that they have scrounged off other people who do work for a living. It was a good scheme.

          Scrounger sounds like he needs an education and I agree with the oxygen comment. Maybe that’s the answer, scroungers should be given less oxygen until they get a job.

      Why can’t Ed Miliband have sex with his wife?

      Because he refuses to adopt a position.

      like all politicians it seems nowadays he has no credible experience. He did a year as a tv researcher, which means he was a tea bitch. From there all ‘work’ is as a politician. I can’t make up mind whether this is more embarrassing or sad, I’m going to stick my neck out with ‘sad’

    Sandra in Accounts says:

    Ed Miliband policies:

    More immigration.

    More EU.

    More borrowing from unborn British taxpayers.

    More taxes.

    More DFID.

    More Laws.

    Less Justice.

    Less Freedom.

    More destruction of British heritage, history, culture & values by these Johnny come lately cultural Marxists.

    What advantage is there in doing this, other than further distraction from NHS killings ?

      WVM says:

      The NHS Unions own the Labour Party.

      Socialism has killed tens of millions – you don’t think 1200 or so white British working class people mean anything to the modern Labour party do you?

        National Socialism is Socialism says:

        Why everyone is always on about NHS managers, Unions and the Labour party is interesting. They are obviously the agents.

        But why forget about the civil servants in the DoH itself ?

        They do after all set the long term policy and make things happen on the ground. Don’t they ?


        • 49
          WVM says:

          Yes they do – they are all pro EU Common Purpose graduates.

          We are basically engaged in a secret war – and a foreign enemy has captured our middle management and turned our public sector into an occupied zone.

    Ed doesn’t need to have any policies. Mine are sure to get him elected in 2015.

    Hand the Cat says:

    “It won’t have any new policies in it” The problem is dear heart you have to have policies in the first place to say “It won’t have any new policies in it,”
    So it will be like PMQ’s Ed standing up and gurning waving his hands about and trying to remember the jokes that have been wriiten for him. Nice.

    My policy is to have no policy, therefore it is a policy.

            to be karmic neutral devote yourself to anyone…anything whole heartedly.
            to be karmic positive we need to work for the highest good.
            inner conflict makes as karmic negative.
            if we came from hell before this life then if for this lifetime we are karmic neutral then we go back to hell. If we did not but still want to go to a higher plane of existence then the end result of this life needs to be karmic positive. all cummulates and accumulates across lifetime.
            Now gods on earth have the solution. Just live forever so no day of reckoning. God has been kind enough to give us another very long period of darkness…for only then we appreciate the daylight more… we need to look upwards but beyond the manmade entities of the media…the darlings of the Murdoch media empire.
            The greatest reality is simple enough for a child to understand.
            anyone connect karmic neutral with carbon neutral….negative karma produced by the hot air of our emotion. so chill. become egoless and serve. If you serve yourself all the time then your religion is you. but who are you?…and it would even more interesting going down the “know thyself” route.
            so inner conflict removal first followed by high ethics. but the soclal engineering of the world has not only inverted this but also use dodgy means to create inner inconsistencies within us…and we get put off in our search for something meaningful when the junk carbon neutral concept is surrounding the only thing worth knowing in life.

            That’s fine. I don’t think it is worth over dressing for your case.

      A guy from Dr Foster said on today’s Today programme that he had told Burnham in 2001 that there was something wrong with Staffs hosp’s death rate. Naturally, the interviewer (I forget the particalar twat) didn’t ask further. Now, if it had been a Tory minister …..

          Misternedderry says:

          Correct Sandra. I cannot understand that say that they hate labour, but want to vote for more of their policies to be implemented by voting conservative.

          in 2010, they got the benefit of the doubt, but we have had more than half a Parliament and not seen any conservative policies implemented yet, except for one that has been overturned by the lefties in the appeals court.

    Give me a chainsaw and ten minutes alone with him says:

    So murderer Dale Cregan has suddenly changed his plea to guilty? Let me guess, he’s done a plea deal in return for a shorter sentence? Why do we have a system which allows fucking scum like this to plead guilty and spend less time in prison as a result? Fucking judicial system’s a joke.

    The gifts that keep on giving.

    Ho hum, now the BBC is going to have to work even harder to spin this, possibly actually writing what he ‘will say’ for him.

    Pryce Watch says:

    Interesting defense summary:

    ‘Knowles denies crown claims that Pryce was “vindictive and manipulative”

    “Those labels and not the appropriate labels,” he tells jurors.’

    – I think that has been disproved by her very own words in court the other day.

    ‘”People do not readily, when they don’t have to, confess to crimes that they have committed,” he tells the court.’

    – Quite cryptic. She did plead not guilty ? From the defense this almost seems like an appeal to the judge for lighter sentencing.

    I suppose if you’re the Labour leader, the choice between having no economic policies and having your party’s economic policies set by the current Shallow Chancer is a bit of a no-brainer.
