Awkward Ed Miliband By-Election Moments

Ed’s been out on the campaign trail in South Shields today. A gem from the PA write up of his day up north:

“Mr Miliband was greeted by Labour supporters as he arrived by Metro in the town and spoke to various members of the public as he walked along the high street.

Occasionally correcting people who called him David, he asked them what the issues were in South Shields.”

One Miliband was probably enough…


  1. 1
    Ed Miliband, A Wholly Owned Subsidary of Unite says:

    These strikes are wrong.

  2. 2
    Ed Millibland says:

    Yah I’m a metrosexual now

  3. 3
    David Milliband says:

    Ed, you Hunt….

  4. 4
    Duty Pedant says:


    Don’t you mean Wallace?

  5. 5
    Phil Mowbray says:

    I always thought David was overrated.

    But Ed is just a plonker.

  6. 6
    Filbert Gibbler says:

    Eoww, and what do you do?

    Phuck all!

    Good, good, keep up the good work!


  7. 7
    Labour is off its ED says:

    I worry for this country if people really believe that Milibandwagon & his cohorts could govern us.

    Is this what 13 years of Labour education has done?

    As for the older people who vote Labour, I think the further north you go, the thicker people are.

    Gawd help us if this rabble do get into Office again.

  8. 8
    Tay King-dePisse says:

    You’re a Boston Red Sox fan, Ed– how about “third strike, you’re out”?

    What really fascinates me is whether, if the people in South Shields think he’s David Miliband, do they even realise David Miliband is no longer their MP?

    Well I deserve one as I was the first black woman MP………

    Dick Whittington's Cat says:

    Can’t we just give everything above Derby to Scotland and let them have their independence? Maybe give Liverpool to Iceland or something.

    If you promise to go now, right now Tony, I agree.

    It’s easy to tell them apart. Ed is the left ball in the scrotum and David is the right. Simples. And Chukka is the brown ringpiece.

    But I saw you laid out, you held my fiscal hand so tight
    As you stopped to say “No No No”
    Aww you wished me hell , you couldn’t tell ( as ever )

    That I’d been cry-i-i-i-ng over you, cry-i-i-i-ng over you
    Then you said “so long”. left me standing all alone
    Alone and crying, crying, crying cry-i-ing
    It’s hard to understand but the touch of your hand
    Can start me crying

    Stan Stereason says:

    Absolutely right!

    Watching the morons on the beeb last evening, saying their towns were dead because of ‘Fatchur’, you begin to realise that if the wives had gone out to work and build up their pensions as well, instead of buqqering off to bingo and breeding nasty kids, they’d have enough cash to live on now!

    Because, as you so rightly say, the further north you go, the thicker the race, they didn’t ever see that one coming.

    An effige of Baroness Thatcher was burned in South Yorkshire with crowds claiming that the village had been ruined 30 years ago.

    No doubt these people were Labour supporters. what had Labour done over 30 years to help the people of the village ?

    The problem was not closing the pits, its the action since the pits were closed that is the problem.

    The pits were hazadous, caused subsidence & burning of coal produces high CO2

    And no doubt the people of the village will vote Labour again ?

    Ed Miliband has a real gift for looking down his nose when speaking to others.

    What I am puzzled with is who will vote for a party with no policies? I assume this is another case of stick a red rosette on a monkey and people will vote for it while they chant the No 2 cuts mantra.

    Regardless of which party you vote for the cuts are here to stay. The no2cuts chanters are in for a huge disappointment if they vote Labour.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Buzzword-Busting Service says:

    We must always first ascertain, whenever the word “cut” is used, whether something is in actual fact a “cut,” i.e., a reduction in absolute-value terms, or a “cut” in the sense of “a bend in the trajec-Tory,” i.e., we were going to raise spending from 100M to 110M, but now, only to 105M, hence, a “cut” (in projected spending) of 5M. There is altogether too much looseness in the use of the term, both by politicians and the media, and such verbal legerdemain is, as Orwell said about certain other jesuitical uses of language, always said with a purpose to deceive. We propose a neologism for the concept of a reduction in the rate of growth– a “slo-gro” (as in, “Department X will see cuts, and Department Y will see a ‘slo-gro,’ in the next Budget…). If Guido Fawkes can coin “Pilgrim,” we see no reason we cannot coin “Slo-gro.” Dunno who’d want to use it, in relation to what they themselves are doing, but, there you are.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
