Tim Farron’s Labour Love Unrequited

Tim Farron put his heart on the line yesterday and confessed his true feelings for Ed Miliband, but he’ll be breaking out the Ben and Jerry’s this morning. Jim Murphy has made it clear that, sadly for jilted Tim, Labour don’t feel the same way:

Ouch.

      At last. Margaret Thatcher can be loved by the Unions.
      She said privatisation of the Royal Mail is “a step to far”.

          Up to a £1 for a first class stamp I can see that coming off, it is on the delivery side very labour intensive.

            So labour intensive I often get my first (and only) post at 4.45pm, which is fucking pathetic in the middle of London.

          It will end in another privatised monopoly. It will have no ability to control its excesses, and will head off at full speed to destruction. Real privatisation would involve competition. This is just cutting the control strings on a monopoly institution.

            Privatisation can only work when there is completion.

            Monopoly service providers, have zero incentive to provide a better service at any level and any government appointed watchdog Quango, even less to supervise it.

        Yeah, right... says:

        She was wrong. Even the sainted Margaret wasn’t infalliable.

        In the age of email and online banking, why does the state need to employ people to drive miles through country lanes to deliver an unsolicited Boden catalogue?

        Make people pay the real cost and we’ll soon discover just how much affection there is for a daily postal service.

        but I bet had Margaret Thatcher written it she would have described it as a “step too far”.

      Well, I love my Timmy to bits, but have to say that he is a sanctimonious little plotter. Not sure where he got it as there has been nothing like this in the family before.

    It’s ok. Tim Farron’s first love is Tim Farron.

    But imagine the leftist front arcing from union barons via Labour to the likes of Vince Cable and Evan Harris.

      “Tim Farron’s first love is Tim Farron” surely that is the prerequisite for being a politico.
      That arcing business by the left must be stopped at all costs, quick, notify Murdoch who will get Guido to do the dirty, or else!

      Labour know he’s only interested in himself. They’d probably be happier dealing with Clegg on the grounds that he’ll accept the stick to deliver.

    There are no depths to which Tim Farron would not stoop so long as he gets coverage in the Westmorland Gazette. Give him a brush and he will pretend to sweep the road. Give him a spade and he will pretend to clear snow off the pavement. Give him a miss. He is a self-publicising bag of wind.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
