Miliband is Selfie-Obsessed

Ed’s selfie on the 6.45 from Leeds to London on Friday night was not quite as glamorous as his selfies earlier in the week with Lilly Allen and Joey Essex, or Cameron’s with Obama.

When Ed got on the train at Doncaster two passing teenage girls plucked up the courage to ask to have their picture taken with the Labour leader. His assistant offered to take their pictures when Ed grabbed the mobile phone and said he would do it himself. “Selfies are my new thing” he told them, “I’m learning how to do them.” “I did them with Lilly Allen and Joey Essex this week” he boasted to the girls for some extra street cred.

There were a few more awkward moments while he fiddled with the phone before figuring out how to work it, afterwards Ed asked them to tweet the picture out. Which is exactly what sixth form student Maya Rose did when she also asked Ed for a selfie.

Even the train guard got one…

    I’m down with the kids, innit?

    That’s what Mr McCluskey tells me to say to sound hip and cred.

    I’d not heard the expression “selfie” until Saint Madeba’s memomorial.

    I’m already bored with it.

      “Faint menace”?

      ‘Oo, us, guv? We wuz gentlemen, gentle as lambs we wuz to your average person. It wuz only wiff those wot treated us like we wuz trash that we wuz “pugnacious,” shall we say. Our repootation in that regard preceded us, ya might say, but we nevah set out to menace anyone wot didn’t deserve t’ be.

      If you’re askin’ us, ‘e looks like ‘e’s one o’ those random violence shootout type blokes wot they got over in the States. We wouldn’t let ‘im around any automatic weapons, if ya catch our drift.

    Lord Hanningfield:

    Let’s not forget his original offence. He served a nine-week (!) prison sentence (again, at our expense) for embezzling £286,000 on his council credit card. And amazingly, he’s still allowed to be a Lord making decisions which affect all of us.

      VAT (69) says:

      I receive expenses in my job, its currently £5 per day, and I use it to buy a meal when I support people in the community. I also “help people”, the people I “help” have learning disabilities. If I want to entertain I use my fucking wages (such as they are), they also go towards paying my bills, pretty sure that is the same for most people.

    The idea of a selfie is not to semi exclude the guest, you mong. Get a life. Would people actually vote for this cretin.

    Joey Essex? Is that a real person or another plastecine character from Wallace & Grommit?

      Travel Expense claim says:

      Traveling home for the weekend.

      Can he claim expenses home to parliament and back?
      Home to constituency and back?
      Constituency and Parliament and back?
      second home to where ever?

      and once parliament ceases to sit surely he should only have a ticket home until the next sitting?

    United Union Man who does not do selfies! says:

    A selfie? He will never be his own man just a union man. Len’s muppet at best! I wish he would fuck off and insult someone elses intelligence. The guy is a communist creep!

    Joe Public II says:

    We’re going to have this pillock as P.M. for a few years, as the price of getting rid of bumsex Dave.

    The Tories have continued to fuck up the U.K., doubling Gorgon’s Debt, so it won’t make any difference.

    Sir Roger de Senseless says:

    Actually, that girl on his right looks quite pretty. Rather a nice eye, I would say; so call me fussy, but I prefer ‘em in pairs – yes, that’s right, eyes too. It shows what a self-obsessed little tosser he is that he got all his face in and only half of hers. Anybody who wants to look at his ugly mug can do it anytime.

    Labour only take credit & never the responsibility for their actions. Can’t get an idea of their own & thus Len’s McClueless’s Mastercard defines Labour policy. Ed a selfie? He cannot even get his own gimmicky ideas!

    Only thickos vote Labour!

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
