      Surely Milliband will be replaced before the election in 2015 ? can you seriously see him as PM, i think it is very worrying, especially when you see the quality of the rest of the front bench. All the same crowd as Gordon had, which in itself is very odd!

    Today Ed Miliband will make:
    one ‘off the cuff’ joke about Teresa may wanting to be the next Conservative leader
    one ‘off the cuff’ remark about the loyalty of Michael Gove
    no apology for increasing debt, immigration and social inequality during his time in government.

      Sorry I forgot to predict Ed Miliband making a stupid joke first, stupid of me. Teresa May ‘off the cuff’ remark – Yes
      Michael Gove – I think that was who Ed Miliband meant when he mentioned ‘the Childrens Minister’
      No apology – Of course

      “no apology for increasing debt, immigration and social inequality during his time in government.”

      Referring to Cameron, of course?

        ‘The wages of ordinary full-time workers barely grew during this period and were negative for the lowest earners… Even workers in the top half saw their wages grow only slowly. It was only the very richest – those in the top 5% – who experienced growth of more than 1% a year. This pattern of wage growth among individuals contributed to a growing polarisation in household incomes.’

        Those evil Tories, only the top 5% experiencing growth on their incomes, the rich looking after the rich…

        Just one problem the above is taken from The Resolution Foundation’s Report ‘Squeezed Britain 2013′ and relates to the period 2008-2011, when for the most part there was a Labour government.

    Casual Observer says:

    The guy who knifed the girl on the bus was sectioned. That’s a health issue not criminal justice isn’t it ?

    Good joke from Ed.

    You may support him, you may hate him but one thing’s for sure if Farage was either asking or answering the questions wednesday lunchtimes would be much more interesting.

    Liked that bit about the unions. Quite right – an utter disgrace.

    How about the 1 in 4 of the sunday times rich list who donated over £80 million to the conservative party.

    Just for balance…. oh wait I’m on a right wing bloggers site…

    Casual Observer says:

    Good point on ‘bedroom tax’, but Dave has failed to hammer that distinction home.

    “Tesco buys Giraffe”

    To put in the ready meals?

    Can anyone truly imagine Milliband as Prime Minister? Note I didn’t say leading the country.

      Adolphe (call me Ralph) Miliband says:

      Is she playing the racist card here or the sexist card? Does anyone genuinely take the despicably racist hypocrite serioously? No, I thought not.

      • 67
        Not Grommit says:

        She’s playing the Tesco Club card – 10 cans for 8 with a spicy chicken meal.

      His Champagne Socialist gibe fell sort of flat. Should have been a lot more jeering, seemed half hearted support.

        The Lizzud Returns says:

        There was ear-splitting support. Perhaps you should unmute your TV.

        • 74
          Casual Observer says:

          May have been the sound engineer, but it sounded on the live stream like the jeers were more directed at the Tory front bench, and they died down fairly quickly.

          It was a good line. Should have taken at least 3 calls from speaker to get them settled.

    Adolphe (call me Ralph) Miliband says:

    Damn, shouldn’t have left property to my sons

    Why are so many Labour wimmin morbidly obese? So many whales…..

    Election Watcher says:

    Minimum pricing of alcohol would just increase the profits of retailers. It would harm the vast majority of sensible drinkers of alcohol by increasing the price of their favourite tipple by about 30%. It would do little to stop alcohol binge drinkers. When all 3 parties agree on a subject they are usually inevitably wrong.

    Catty Comment (Ms) says:

    Would it help to return to the days of my childhood when only off-licences were allowed to sell alcohol and only at certain times of the day. Ban supermarkets and other sundry shops from access and there may eventually be an improvement in binge drinking behaviour.

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.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
