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.

      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)

      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.

    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.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
