Guido understands the Labour leader will be journeying south to help out his joke candidate John O’Farrell tomorrow.

And this time he’s armed with an actual policy…

      Is that the sound of Ed Miliband squeezing out a policy?

        No. That is some draft legislation relating to the issue of consummation of gay marriage.

        ho ho very funny topic.

        But note it was that trick that got Strauss-Kahn in the shit, and guilty in the court of public opinion.

    I wonder how Ed would answer if someone were to ask him why his candidate recommends the state pimping Pippa Middelton as a high class whore?

    Just asking.

    Lets hope the residents of Eastleigh don’t pass up the opportunity for a good egging.

    What type of policy, insurance, perchance?
    With his best clown suit on, if he does a dance
    And chances to trip up on those great, long shoes
    He can’t risk the N H S cooking his goose

      T'Old Fella says:

      He can’t risk the N H S cooking his goose. What, with a Hunt incharge of the NHS, he would insist on turkey supplied from a private cooked and ready to heat and serve, they don’t do cooking now

    BBC politics is controlled by Labour says:

    Not an actual policy, a fag packet uncosted sick joke policy. Even balls was embarrassed. Nobody asked him how much the poor will actually benefit, least of all his union baron masters. Answer, next to zero. Ed preaches class war politics far sicker than anyone in politics for decades under the guise of one nation. Now it really does seem to have gone to his head, he thinks he is the real thing and will be the next PM. Its just getting worse. There is a chink of light though, someone on the BBC made a joke about him recently. Of course they lost their job and are being rehabilitated in Mid Staffs hospital but it is a start.

      “even balls ….”

      Wouldn’t it be part of a coherent plan for EdB to be easing EdM out by now?

        the savant10.4 highway patrol says:

        I think you’ll find when the time is right there will be no question of “easing “. .

        Binkie will just gird his massive 20 stone loins , lift him up and defenestrate him …. rather in the manner of the Infant of Prague

    he sheep in Eastleigh will of course vote for the liblabcon parties, who advocate a United States of Europe, but spend their time of course telling you and persuading you that they don’t, and that at some time far into the future, you will of course get a referendum!

    When you put your cross against their names very soon, you will have absolutely no right to moan when they sign you up to the next all embracing union treaty,taking away even more of each own countries sovereign powers.

    You have been warned many times now, so I guess you do really want a United States of Europe yourselves then?

    Sunday Times says:

    Ed Milliband was carried shoulder high through the streets of Eastleigh yesterday by a large crowd of Hampshire second home owners.

    One of the crowd Hugh Parminter-Jessop, 45, a Partner in a firm of City Accountants said:

    ‘This is the perfect policy for the people of Eastleigh. A little old lady with a basic pension living in a big house passed down through generations will have to find £25,000 a year in taxes so a lot of people can have an extra 67 pence in their pockets every week. That’s a Mars Bar AND 2p extra. That Ed Milliband is a genius. And so brave to renege on a policy decision he made a few years ago’.

    Ed Balls was unavailable for comment. Mercifully.

      Maybe she should sell the house to someone who could do with the space (and afford the tax bill)?

    Old Grumpy says:

    Judging the turnout at the last general election, Millibland would have been well advised to have refrained from submitting a candidate.

    He/she/it will fail and in the process will probably hoover up dissident LibDim votes………..

    While UKIP might be a bloody nuisance to the Tories, that will be well offset.

    Isn’t it time that British voters woke up to the fact that Miliband and Cameron don’t care about them? They just want their votes and then they will forget everything they promised and return to their own self interest. See Eastleigh Byelection.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
