Labour MPs Revolt Against Miliband’s “Sloganeering”

With just a few days to go before Labour’s special conference, two Labour MPs have used interviews with Total Politics to hand Miliband a big public slap over his messaging. Simon Danczuk was victim to red on red revenge last time he criticised Ed, though that hasn’t deterred him:

“Some [slogans] have a shelf-life, others don’t… so ‘Cost of Living Crisis’ is probably coming to the end of its sell-by-date, isn’t it? People get turned off by it. I read the other day ‘One Nation Social Security’ – what the hell is that? Andrew Neil asked me on the Daily Politics about ‘One Nation Banking’. ‘One Nation Banking’? For goodness sake! If I went round talking like that on the doorstep, I’d get short shrift. You’d see doors being slammed in your face.”

Meanwhile head girl Stella Creasy wades in, deriding Ed’s ‘One Nation':

“If you ever met people from Walthamstow you wouldn’t tell them anything like that because they’d quite quickly put you in your place.”

Which all bodes well for Saturday…

    Leave the Ukrainians to it: the only reason they want to join the EU is – like all Eastern bloc countries – so they can pack their bags and leg it over here.

    She lives in Walthamstow Village, in a middle-class ghetto area.

    This area has been called ‘The White Highlands’ by some people who live elsewhere in her otherwise socially and ethnically mixed constituency. The constituency is being rapidly gentrified at present, with house prices rocketting well past what the traditional working class parts of her Labour-voting electorate can sustainably afford to buy or rent. A house in her own, relatively expensive, street was discovered to have been seriously overcrowded with eastern European immigrants when a fire broke out there.

    They’ll have invented whisky (even though they didn’t) but will only dr*i*nk Buckfast themselves.

    They’ll have so much money from oil that they won’t know what to do with it. But in 20 years time they’ll still be dying five years younger than their English counterparts.

    They’ll be swaggering around Prince’s Street plastered in woad for the tourists giving it ‘W’as like us’?

    Absolutely Brilliant one of the best e-mails in ages!
    Nigel Farage UKIP…..

    Nigel Farage for Prime Minister
    This is what he said:

    “I am the Tory Party’s Worst Nightmare. I am a White, Tax-Paying, God fearing English man. I am a hard working Brit and I work long hours to earn a living.

    I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don’t push it on others.

    I believe in British products and buy them whenever I can.

    I believe the money I make belongs to me and not to some governmental functionary, to share with others who don’t work!

    I think owning a home doesn’t make you a capitalist; it makes you a smart Brit.

    I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and
    does not entitle you to anything. Get over it. Join in with the majority!

    I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other language option.

    I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

    My heroes are fellow Brits like Freddy Flintoff and Winston Churchill and I know I’ve missed a few thousand!!!!!

    I don’t hate the rich. What I hate is the way they always manage to avoid paying proper taxes. I don’t pity the poor, I just hate the way they are always moaning that they are hard done by!!

    I know wrestling is fake and I don’t waste my time watching or arguing about it.

    I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

    This is ENGLAND…..We like it the way it is and even more so the way it was…so stop trying to change it to look like some other socialist country!

    If you were born or legally migrated here and don’t like it… you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the House of Commons, the seat of our biggest problems.

    I want to know where the “Do Gooders” get their money from, and why are they always part of the problem and not the solution? Can I get an AMEN on that one?

    I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you’re breaking the law, regardless of what race, colour or creed you are.
    And, no, I don’t mind having my face shown on my d**ving licence. I think it’s good….

    I dislike those people trying to guilt me into making ‘donations’ to their cause….Get a job and support yourself and your family!

    I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

    I believe the Union Jack flag should be allowed to be flown anywhere in the United Kingdom !

    If this makes me a BAD Brit, then yes, I’m a BAD Brit. If you are a BAD Brit too, please forward this to everyone you know….

    We want our country back! My Country…..

    My great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Boer War. My grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in World Wars 1&2. I watched as my friends died in Sierra Leone Bosnia, & Desert Storm. Our sons and daughters watched & bled as their friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq . None of them died for the Afghanistan and Iraq Flag. Every Briton died for the British flag.

    At one high school, foreign students raised a Middle East flag on a school flag pole. British students took it down. Guess who was expelled… the students who took it down .

    West London high school students were sent home, because they wore T-shirts with the Union Jack flag printed on them.

    What is going on?? What idiots do we have in authority?? Enough is enough.

    This message needs to be viewed by every Brit; and every Briton needs to stand up for Britain . We’ve bent over to appease the Brit-haters long enough. I’m taking a stand.

    I’m standing up because of the millions who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the British flag.

    And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message. IT IS NOT !

    Britons, stop giving away Your RIGHTS !


    This statement DOES NOT mean I’m against immigration !

    YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:

    1. Get a sponsor !
    2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past!
    3. Live by OUR rules ! Dress as we Britons Do
    4. Get a job !
    5. Pay YOUR Taxes !
    6. No Social Security until you have earned it and paid for it !
    7. Find a place to lay your head !

    If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !

    We’ve gone so far the other way… bent over backwards not to offend anyone.


    I hope this offends all illegal aliens.

    If you do not Pass this on, may your fingers cramp !
