Ed Miliband: Prime Minister in Waiting

Responding to the penultimate budget before the election, one phrase that you can not apply to Ed Miliband today was “Prime Minister in waiting”. He was all over the shop, tearing through his list of tired slogans before limping back to his class war comfort zone. It wasn’t as bad as Ed Balls’ terrible Autumn Statement meltdown, but it was not far off.

Of course responding to a Budget you have not seen is tricky – especially one with lots of unknown detail – but Miliband could have at least mentioned it once or twice rather than just yelling. One very loyal government member chortles “Miliband was just a complete car crash… Every Labour MP must be asking the question why they have him as leader”. And it’s not just Tories who think this…

Instead of spending money they do not have on expensive focus groups and polling, the Labour Party should just watch Channel Four’s GoggleBox. The show has people from all walks of society watching TV at home and it captures their reactions. Miliband and his pie-in-the-sky Jobs Guarantee Scheme popped up on the news, and the response will not make for comfortable viewing if you’re a Labour strategist or supporter.

Some of the family friendly comments include:

“F**king hilarious!”


“He is a bit of a joke isn’t he?”

“I don’t even understand politics, but I understand that is s**t idea.”

“The Labour Party… they must think we are donkeys.”

The people have spoken.

    A golden opportunity missed by Osborne to abolish the telly tax so as to ease the cost of living on the poorest households, to end the ridiculous clogging of magistrates courts for non payment and to open up the market to new media companies by auctioning off the BBC’s TV & radio frequencies.

    They will be popping champagne corks at the BBC tonight instead of downing bottles of hemlock as should have been the case.

    The election is in the bag for Miliband and Labour :-(

    “tax the bankers bonuses”… “bedroom tax”…. “tax cuts for millionaires”…. “cost of living crisis”…. “food banks”….. all my favourite incoherent meaningless sound bites for the BBC.

    Nick says:

    Miliband was a shambles.

    But it just doesn’t matter.

    Here is a party that presided over a financial collapse, industrial collapse (that granted was probably started by Thatcher, but still), a benefit Britain, the most unpopular PM in living memory, the shortest serving PM…

    … and still Labour got 29% of the vote in 2010 and have increased it since.

    I know Cameron and Osborne haven’t been wonderful, but to see Labour consistently leading the polls just makes me ponder about the sanity of the British electorate.

    Toxic Tories for Landowning Spongers, Parasites, Criminals, Peedos, & other Wasters says:

    If Osborne can change taxation rules for offshore-based online gambling companies so that they pay tax based upon where the the gambling is taking place rather than where the company is based then why hasn’t he done something similar for all multinational businesses so that they have to pay tax based upon where the service is being bought rather than the country where the multinational say they have completed the sale?

    If he can change the rules for online gamblers then he can change the rules for them the likes of Starbucks, Vodaphone, Facebook and Amazon too. So why hasn’t he?

    If everything is going so swimmingly well, why has Boris announced today he has given the go ahead for water cannon in London in time for the summer?

    Must be expecting a lot of joyful pensioners, when they find out IDS has convinced Osborne to put pensioner benefits such as the winter fuel allowance in the benefit cap

  21. 21
    Shit Creek (brother of Jonathan) says:

    The national debt meanwhile, has really improved
    Gross National Debt
    FY 2013 £1.16 trillion
    FY 2012 £1.04 trillion
    FY 2011 £0.91 trillion
    FY 2010 £0.76 trillion
    FY 2009 £0.62 trillion
    FY 2008 £0.53 trillion

    But Osborne still makes it sound as if he’s a financial genius and that the good times are due to his steadfast refusal to change course.
    If Brown was known as ‘McRuin’ then Osborne will be known as “Cabin Boy of the Titanic”

    This was Osborne’s attempt to look like a future Tory leader

    Is it any wonder that anybody with the wherewithall or the accountant to avoid, evade or otherwise pay as little tax as they possibly can does so?

    That chap who won 108million quid yesterday – what’s the best advice he could have got (apart from remaining anonymous?).

    ‘Get your fucking money away from these thieving c*unts’ is the advice I’d be giving him. Look at him (miliband), listen to him. Who is he appealing to? Stupid people with no job and no desire to find one. What’s he promising them? Anything he thinks they want. How will he pay for it? With your fucking money.

    Run!!! Hide your money.

    Wasn’t Osborne bigging up our export performance?

    Why then is the contribution to GDP from net trade (exports less imports) flat over the next few years?

    Net exports contributes zero to growth between 2015 and 2018

    Why are Labour such a bunch of sits?

  32. 32
    was it something I said? says:

    There will be unintended (or not so unintended) consequences to this.

    On the upside a lot of people will take a lot more of their pension a lot sooner which will give a boost to spending and therefore GDP and tax revenue.

    On the downside there won’t be so much demand for whatever annuity companies invest in to give you your pension so there will be lower stock and bond pri*ces at a guess.

    Whatever the outcome is I trust Osborne won’t, like the Maximum Imbecile, claim that nobody warned him of the consequences.

    It’s not so much sanity (though there are numerous examples of that) as gullibility. Labour and other Lefties here and around the world use the same old propaganda techniques because they *work*. If they didn’t, the methodology would have changed long ago.

    Lefties *always* work by deception via propaganda – they have to, as they have nothing else of true value to offer. When the human race truly grows up, the Left will be unable to survive and we shall be rid of them once and for all. In the meantime…

If I was a Labour supporter is be so embarrassed by today’s performance I’d drink a bottle of bleach.

    Lord and Lady Establishment-Stooge of Brussels says:

    In answer to your class biased nonsense.
    After a useless education which stifled their ambition, they watched the 7% of privately schooled children take the best jobs while the rich and privileged allowed millions of foreign workers in to take 80% of new jobs.
    To add insult to injury, too many snides now criticize the under achievers when we should be helping them.
    We were lucky to have our chances in life but we have let down millions of our neighbours.
    At the same time, plenty of those chavs you denigrate have good families and are members of good communities.
    They think we’re a bit weird to be tapping away on here instead of living a productive life

    Milliband lost the 2015 General Election today. However he may just have guaranteed a YES vote for the Scottish referendum by putting the Tories in front.

    I have to admit Osborne delivered the budget well. He addressed key concerns such as savings.

    Millibands response was the final nail. A measured profession presentation was countered by a rambling series of poster campaign rants.

    Picture Ed Balls first budget after a Labour win and an overall majority for the Tories is assured.

    “Ed Miliband: Prime Minister in Waiting”
    Now that’s what one could call a pregnant pause.
    Ed and Dave are producing two contradictory narratives from an allegedly identical set of data. Reason suggests that both of those interpretations cannot simultaneously be optimal. Indeed, it is more likely that the pair of evaluations are flawed. The agendas and computational mental methodology in use by those individuals cannot be made evident to observers. Indeed those deploying them appear to possess no comprehension whatsoever concerning the nature of said ethereal apparatus. In short it seems faultfinding those cranial devices would make more sense, than just listening to them interminably grinding away out of mesh with reality.

    Poor Bloody Taxpayer says:

    The Labour part needs the bankers to earn huge bonuses. Their economic policies are dependent on paying for everything out of the taxes raised on said bonuses, which they have already spent ten times over.

    Ed’s Just so flipping pessimistic: The thought of him droning on for years…
    Surely at least some part of his job should be to engender hope. Can’t see it in him at all.
    But then maybe I can’t see it in any of’em.
    Then again maybe there truly is no hope,,,,,,,,,
    There really is no hope, might as well vote Labour.

    Just ( Sunday morning ) watched the leader of the opposition’s response to the budget. “Car Crash Miliband” trotted out his normal meaningless soundbites-Cost of living crisis, Bedroom Tax, Bankers Bonus’s, Millionaires Tax Cut -and on and on and on.
    No wonder his front bench -Cooper, Balls, Harman Eagles and the rest of the non entities were unable to raise a smile.
    In spite of this the polls still put Labour ahead- speaks wonders for the state of education in this country.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
