Will the Last Blairite to Leave Switch Out the Light?

red-light-milibandThis morning Nick Robinson observed on the Today programme of David Miliband “He was not just the other brother, he was the New Labour brother.” Robinson also reported that one senior figure on the left of the Labour Party told him late last night: “It’s important for the left to avoid triumphalism but it obviously marks the date when New Labour finally accepted that the crisis requires us to turn the page… Now there can be no excuse for timidity [from Ed Miliband] because the Blairites are decisively weakened.”

Milburn, Reid, Purnell and now David Miliband are all gone as they see the writing on the wall, a frontbench packed with more supporters of Ed Balls than David Miliband despite him having won far more support from the parliamentary Labour Party. Dan Hodges identified it yesterday before the news from David Miliband – his brother Ed is a hostage to the left of his party together with the unions who put him in place and hold the purse strings. He can’t move towards the voters on policy without undermining himself and party unity. The Owen Jones digital Bennites are in the ascendant supported by the siren calls of Polly Toynbee, fronting the drive among activists for more left-wing policies – the inherent problem for a party with socialist activists far to the left of the electorate on, for example, welfare reform. As they rise in the polls and scent power the left becomes more furious in its policy demands…

byrneEd’s current poll lead means the left-wing of his party is in no mood for compromising with the electorate. The remaining Blairites like Liam Byrne are on the receiving end of vitriol last seen when Derek Hatton was in his prime. The unions are in no mood for moderation, Len McCluskey last week wrote to congratulate  the 44 MPs who defied a three-line party whip to vote against Liam Byrne’s official line on welfare reform.   They enjoy principled opposition, the Blairite accommodation with reality was an aberration, it matters not a jot to much of the rank and file that it was the most successful period in history for the Labour Party. The capacity of the Labour Party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is legendary – a left-wing Labour Party will not form a coalition government in 2015…

Above was how Owen Jones greeted the news of David Miliband’s exit from British politics. Tony Blair hints in his more generous statement of his fears “He is obviously a massive loss to UK politics… I hope and believe this is time out not time over.” It is over, all that remains for Labour moderates is for the last of them to switch off the light…

    I want Milishambles to know that I am not handing over the keys for Tracy Island and he can’t use Thunderbird 5 for monitoring and communication. If he thinks I am going down without a fight like he did when his brother knifed him in the back, he’s got another thing coming.

    Ed’s “current poll lead” is a work of fiction by Labour’s pollster friends and the Cameron’s media enemies who pay for them.

      IDS has the right idea – all benefits should be paid this way – by use of stamps or a card which can only be used to buy sensible food and housing benefits should be paid directly to landlords so that feckless tenants can’t get their hands on any money to buy alcohol, cigarettes or drugs.

          Like a reverse Green Shield stamp situation.
          Every shopkeeper collects the stamps in a book and sends it to HMRC for payment .

          • SP4BS says:

            Ah right. Thus employing an army of civil servants, to collect stamps and check up on the corner shops to make sure that the stamps had indeed been swapped for beans and not special brew.

            And the stamps would develop a black market cash value.

          • Curly says:

            Surely that is up to the users to decide whether they want to drink/smoke themselves to death or starve once the coupons have run out. But at least there will be limitations on taxpayer handouts.

          • SP4BS says:

            Looks like a system designed to win votes. It doesnt strike me as practical, useful, or – my real point- actually able to do what they promise it would do. As soon as they think about it for 30 seconds, it’ll be another U-turn.

That is the trouble with the Left they are not grounded in the real world with them it is all abstract and theory (well so they would have you believe.) Cameron could win the next election tomorrow if he called an EU referendum. Better to be poor and free than living in debt, paying others’ debts, and ruled from Berlin. Many of my grandparents’ generation died to stopped that happening. Many of my parents’ and my generations sat in West Germany to stop us being ruled by Marxists. Yet in all likelihood the next PM will be a Marxist son of an immigrant, non-Christian, who comes from a line that have sold their countrymen to other powers for the sake of political theory (and self gain.)

      UKIP, Tory – I’m pro-EU.
      Lib Dems – maybe, if they get their act together.
      Labour – I believe in free speech
      BNP – I don’t believe in capital punishment

      Resident of 96.96% white Merseyside says:

      I’m even beginning to think that. Since 1979 I’ve only voted for “New Labour”. If I’m still around in 2015 I shall be in a bit of a quandry.

        In Liverpool they’re filled with curiosity and keep asking: “Why doesn’t he come?’ Be calm. He’s coming! He’s coming!”

    You can’t compromise with the left or be reasonable with them. The only way to deal with them is to stamp on them like Mrs T did.

    The union barons have flushed out one of the last modernisers.

    Labour are now the party of dinosaurs.

    I’m lovin it!

    Or start another left of centre political party and leave the lunatics to take the party into obscurity.

    I think the odds on another Con Dem coalition after 2015 must be shortening. I reckon even Cable wouldn’t relish going in with the post 2015 Labour party.

      Leeds? Now there’s a city that was transformed during the Boom Years (1997-2008).

        Leeds, even the name sounds stingy as if they begrudgingly uttered two syllables instead of one.

    Cue the attempts to portray the forceps faced fuck as some sort of great political mind and operator. In fact he squandered every single big opportunity due to arrogance, cowardice or both.

    It’s sickening to see the presumptuous media lefties trying to create some impression he was a heavyweight, in the same way the BBC casually tried (and failed) to pass off Ralph Miliband as some sort of pre-accepted great thinker of the 20th Century.

    It really is fucking pathetic, and I am tired, tired, tired of it.

    Having read some of the comments re welfare reforms it reminds me how funny it is that rich people who plan to leave millions to their work shy oik kids will moan at the handouts given to a poor single mother with 3 children. An air of irony to it.

    Why give Owen Jones the oxygen of publicity? He needs to be comprehensively ignored for the ignorant extreme left-wing punk that he is.

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.
