LISTEN: Miliband Adviser: Gordon Like Brezhnev

Ed’s one-time guru Maurice Glasman has some choice words about what things were like under the Prime Mentalist:

“In the end, where there’s no movement, where there’s only outcomes, where it’s all completely administrative: spending money is all you can do. That’s the whole story of what happened to Gordon Brown who was just sitting there allocating or not allocating resources to people. There was no devolution of power, no politics in that. It was an entirely Brezhnevite kind of administrative system.”

The two Eds must have had a great time. From Mr Bean to Brezhnev…

    None of the current Labour front bench had the gumption to resign. They are all implicated. Weak men. Traitors to democracy.

    That’s still labour’s problem under militwit and balls. They think government is just about spending money – taxing, printing borrowing and spending money. new mind the debt!

  9. 9
    Labour=Waste says:

    Labour still haven’t learned the lesson. They still want to dole out money to their preferred pals and close cronies.

    Only the other day we had talk that Ed Balls wanted to outspend the Conservative spending plans… without even knowing what the plans where. Whatever the number Ed Balls just wanted to splurge even more.

    Some people thought that Brown ought to be sectioned, but sometimes I’m left wondering if any woman who wants to do Ed Balls might be best led to a padded cell and left there for a long long time.

    The cat’s out of the bag now!

    Labour have admitted all they do is spend, spend and spend other people’s money.

    The Court of Appeal has refused the government permission to take its fight to remove Abu Qatada from the UK to the Supreme Court.

    Just put the muslim bastard on a plane and have done with it.

    It wasn’t spending money it was squandering and wasting money. Brown should be tried for treason.

    young Shep says:

    Never did understand that, on the front benches they all used to jump up and boast about how much money they had spent or allocated to this that and the other and then sit down with a smug smiles on their faces as if they a had just emitted a profound knowledge of the money tree known only them, a special talent, G. Brown being the worst culprit, and nothing to show for it at the end except a handful of ‘magic’ beans, that turned out to be just beans, not to mention the Gold-en Goose trick in reverse, (never too early for the Pantomime season in the HOC)

    Gordon Brown (part-time MP) says:

    “Hey-hey, I saved the world today
    Everybody’s happy now, the bad things gone away
    Everybody’s happy now, the good things here to stay…”

    Just put the bastard in the middle of Salisbury plain and let the Army use him for target practice.

    Ed Balls (Chancellor in Waiting) says:

    I don’t think you people here understand! The unions donate 80% of Labour’s funding. We need taxpayer’s money to buy more public sector workers, so the unions take more subs in order to make bigger donations to Labour. Simples!

    Letter from Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev says:

    They are all fine Party Cadre they have built socialism and they’ll build it again and again! Democracy is over rated just control the count and all is well.

    It is their only way of measuring activity. If we spend a lot we must have done a lot vote for me! Really pathetic Labour have no chance in 2015 not because Dave is really any better but that Labour are so much worse. Labour wasted billions and there was f_ck all to show for all the money spent. Infrastructure is a shambles, health and education despite massive investment actually no better than when they started throwing money at it. They could not even invest in manufacturing here in the UK (EU laws prevented it anyway). Millibean will be asking his brother for a job in 2015.

    Ed now has the Unions as his politbureau, but unlike Brezhnev, he hasn’t got the KGB running shot gun and ensuring critics are sent to Siberian concentration camps.

    So these unelected c*nts are now more powerful than the Government? Time for some changes in personnel there!

    Curly says:

    More fool the idiots who waste their hard-earned cash on such lunacy as union subs.

    They should all tear up their union cards and thus give themselves a tax free annual bonus (probably worth more than any pay increase these fat cat troughers will ever get for their members anyway!).

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
