Guy News Special: Robot Miliband Stuck on Repeat

Earlier today Guido brought you Robot Miliband’s budget response repetition over the last few years. You liked it so much we decided to give it to you in video form.

    What a plonker!

      Sir Michael Sugar Cane says:

      Oh come on, you are being far too polite. In a parliament full of dirty, lying, thieving, nose in the trough scumbags Milliband really does stand out as a huge fucking dickwadd. How, in the name of all that was once good in our so called democracy, can the two faced fuckwitts at Labour think that this complete bellend of a man has any chance of becoming PM?

        These same people thought Gordon Brown was a good idea.

          Banker’s bonus blah blah, Millionaires blah blah, Eton, blah blah, Energy blah blah, Tax blah blah. Red Miliband is just about worse than Foot!


        • 129
          Why was bumsex marriage not in the manifesto ? says:

          Yeah and yet Camoron couldnt get a majority against Brown.


      • 30

        Because 29% of the electorate would vote for a donkey if it had a red rosette pinned to it’s arse. In 2015, they’re going to have the opportunity.

          Can you imagine Miliband at a G8 Conference as Prime Minister
          and being manipulated by his puppet master Len McClusky.


          • But says:

            Merkel today stated there was no longer a G8.
            Not quite sure she can unilaterally decide to chuck
            Russia out.


          • East India Company Wallah says:

            What the hell are you on
            It is now the G7 as Putin has been given detention for being a proper leader to citizens who rightly or wrongly want to be Russian
            If we elect that gobshite it will be called the G6 plus the retards

      millipede his panzer-gain says:

      Great work Guido,
      This man is proving to be a complete embarrassment to anyone’s politics, and needs to be exposed for the political bumbling, fraudulent fool that he so very clearly is.
      At least with Michael Foot, or Neil Kinnock there was the feeling that at least they believed in what they were saying.
      B&B, the less said the better perhaps?
      I seriously doubt that Red Ed would know it was his birthday unless someone else told him the day before. Totally unfit for purpose. The Nations leader? Not in a Million!!

      Every good government deserves a good opposition, but this lefty thinking tw@t is currently now gving away the next election on a plate.

        Long may he be preserved to persevere in that case. Is he allowed out in long trousers yet?


      • 121
        was it something I said? says:


        Miliband needs to be kept in-situ. He is the best hope the Tories have for keeping that fucking imbecile Ned Balls away from the nation’s finances.


        • 200
          Plender says:

          Very true. Millibean is Cameron’s best hope, but the fact that he bottled it against McMental is not encouraging and he has a much stranger UKIP presence in 2015. If UKIP do well in the EU Parliament elections later this year then Cameron will go into panic mode so god knows what we’ll get in the manifesto. Lots of jam tomorrow on the EU I imagine.
          It must be one of the worse line ups in Parliament’s history of the main party leaders, none can command respect or show any real leadership. We now have a generation of ‘professional’ politicians and it really shows, none have any real contact with the wider world or ordinary people. I’m no Labour fan but at least their old leaders (pre Blair) had some real conviction about whatever crazy idea they had. The current lot will just say anything that they think will get them into power. Appalling shambles.

      Jim says:

      But seriously, what is psychologically wrong with people whom think “I’ll vote for him to run our country”?

      I understand some folks will vote for an amoeba if it had a red rosette on it, but why? What neurological process makes them think that, with their track record of destroying our economy and making poor people poorer?

      I mean, they can get it together to make it down the polling station, so there must be some neurons firing, but where does the defecit in rational thought kick in?

      I think that about people tuned into x-popstars-factor and corporation st, too, mind.

        Village Idiot says:

        …The mindset of lefties is a mystery indeed,requiring a “common sense bypass”,and ,an inability to forsee the damage of their ideas years down the line!
        ….The other reason some vote for the party that screwed the country,is the educational dumbing down of the populace,and,the settled immy vote!….However,all three parties have been found out,making for interesting times,tin hat time I think!….I for one have voted since 1975,and I do not have the country I craved,europe and selfish politicians put paid to that!…However,a wind of change may sweep the country,but I will not hold my breath!…Until politicians tell the truth and face the unpalatable facts,we will just bumble along,teetering on the edge!!!!…Also,it is not possible to have a meaningful debate with a lefty!


        • 205
          Plender says:

          Much of what you say is very true. I also think there has been a ‘feedback’ loop in the relationship of the political elite and the electorate that has had a very bad effect on the whole political process. The selfishness we see in the politicians is also now very much the norm in the wider ‘society’ indeed I’d argue that there is no such thing now as British society just ever smaller units of self interest that our politicians either pander to or ignore depending on how much ‘leverage’ they are perceived to have. This has been going on for years now and the net result is what we’ve got today. There will only be more of the same in my view. Eventually things will change but only as a result of events far away from us (the eventual rise of China as the number two superpower some time mid century will increasingly marginalise Europe).

    Dave’s secret weapon.


    • 29
      David Cummerbund says:

      Look..let me let you into a secret. Neither of us want to win the next one.
      You know how big the deficit is. Its bigger than the entire GDP of Europe.
      And do you know how much these ‘terribly painful’ austerity measures have shaved off the spending? Under 1%.

      So the next parliament are going to have make real, proper real savage cuts. Not the namby pamby 1% pay rises of today. I’m talking 25% pay cuts to public sector workers and public sector worker numbers. Waiting lists will quadruple. The military will be cut by half.As will the police. School class sizes will be in the 70s.
      And much much worse. 90% top rate of tax. 45% lower rate. 25% VAT. Its going to be deadly.

      So both Ed and I are desperate to lose the next one. I fear just lately he is edging it!

      Hence the bingo poster. We almost picked up in the polls. don’t want that. Don’t want that at all.

    (But I bet a pound to a pinch of shyte that the Biased BBC would find some way to refuse to broadcast.)


  6. 6
    Tony Blair is a war criminal says:

    The BBC and the Labour party really are worked up over this pensions reform. BBC/Labour “People can’t be trusted to spend their money wisely”

    Of course not, unlike Labour and Gordon Brown who of course always spent wisely….especially when robbing our pensions blind to fund benefits for core Labour voters.

          • Gordon Brown says:

            “It began in America.”

            Nothing to do with my debt-funded spending spree. Nothing to do with my bungling regulation. I didn’t hesitate for months over Northern Rock. I didn’t give RBS billions to pay their traders. No waste under Labour. Never.


          • Another lefty Rev Flowers says:

            Thatcher made me bring the Co-op Bank to it’s knees.
            Just check with the BBC.


        • 93
          JJJ & Partners says:

          My clients contend that the gold was actually given away following Brown’s advance advertising of his intention thereby giving the markets ample time to slash the going rate, which they did, they really did. Only for the moment are we not adding to this…

          • Another passing peasant says:

            Correct! An EU-backed coup d’état. Expansionist totalitarianism at its worst, and we are all being carried along for the ride.

    Labour have nothing to say on the economy because they’ve been wrong on everything from scaremongering about unemployment to “triple dip” recessions.

    What’s fascinating is that they’ve now been proved wrong but still say the same things as they did before.


    • 56
      Podiceps says:

      Not all that fascinating, just absolutely familiar. The whole business of socialism is to keep applying the same theories regardless of the fact that the result is chaos. It’s been like that since the days of Ramsay MacDonald.

    It doesn’t matter that Miliband is:

    is economically illiterate
    has chosen an equally inept team to support him
    sounds weird
    looks odd
    couldn’t run a whelk stall
    is a millionaire toff
    privately educated
    went to a toffs’ university
    loves the unions
    chosen by the unions

    The postal vote will ensure that he is Prime Minister next.

        I’m afraid that if the weak pro-union gits don’t get their act together soon, our country WILL be torn apart, and losing a few Labour troughers will be the least of your celebrations. (Although I fully appreciate the appeal)

        We may be a tiny fraction of the UK poulation, but an important, nay vital one.

        If the UK gets split up, no-one is a winner I’m afraid.

        Our economic meltdown, which it will be given Eck doesn’t even know what the currency will be, will manifest in a destruction of any Scottish assets. This will impact England, whether you like it or not.

        It will be a utopian memory to have ‘those Scottish benny seekers'(For which you have my sympathies, but we’re not all on benefits ye ken, and for the sake of truth we actually contribute MORE in taxation than we RECEIVE from the treasury, before oil and whisky’), compared with the indirect losses England (and W, NI) will sustain.

        Don’t kid yersel’s that it would simply be ‘Bye bye, whingers’. We would still be right where we always were, only causing England 100 times more grief than currently. I don’t mean deliberately, I mean indirectly, given the markets would realise that the UK is worse of a busted flush than they thought/pretended.

        And it isn’t independence, we will still be dictated to by Belgium.

      Even if you close your eyes tight to pretend it hasn’t happened, Cleggy, we all know that the truth of what your party of millionaires really thinks about the electorate, is laid bare in wording of that poster.

    Johan Adriaan van der Heim van Duivendijke says:

    Well if you were in any doubt what the Tories actually think of us proles there is your answer.

    Apparently we spend our lives swilling beer down the bingo halls.

    Except the local bingo hall is now closed along with many of the pubs, due to austerity, austerity austerity.

    Shapps has never really explained why he had to shut down that software website of his, or his abuse of ministerial power trying to pressurise his local council in not building social housing on an airfield where our Grant keeps his light aircraft (see Private Eye).

    No instead, like the rest of his Etonian chums, he’ll make sweeping assumptions about the working class, especially that they will vote tory in the next election

    George Osborne practising his Estuary English says:

    So, I’ll knock a penny off ya beer luv, reduce the tax paid on winning at ya bingo, that’ll do you alright luv, won’t it?. As for those annuities, you don’t want to bother with those do you, take the lump sum, £25,000, now that’s ring fenced luv, no one can touch that, not even me! Seriously though luv, I will need to take tax over that, starting at 20p in the pound, up to 40p in the pound if you’re that cash rich me darling! Now, it only fair me dear, if you are claiming housing benefit and have a spare bedroom, you cannot expect people like me, young David and his family, our mate Nick, to keep subsidising you. About time you downsized meluv! I’ll leave that one with you though dear, reducing housing benefit £15 a week for every spare bedroom, tends to focus the mind. I am doing my bit dearest, I have said I will build a new green thingamy city. 15,000 homes. Look kidder, I am under the cosh here, I’m doing me best, under the circumstances. If the last lot had built what they said they were going to, I would have had something else to sell to cover the cost of what I’ve promised now. Well, we are where we are ducks, all in this together and all that. Anyway, must go, time to fill out expense forms for February, work out where to invest my £15,000 isa, don’t talk to me about pension pots, absolute nightmare. Any way enjoy your pint and game of bingo on me old sweet, kind regards, Gideon.

    Ministers or banksters and oligarchs?

    Is Britain a rogue state?

      was it something I said? says:

      Why should we sanction anybody?

      I remember my history. Florence Nightingale, the lady with the lamp, down in the Crimea. We weren’t fighting the ‘Ukranians’ were we?

      The Crimea is historically Russian. It was only lumped in with Ukraine back in 1952 or thereabouts for administrative purposes within the old USSR.

      This is none of our business.

      We should stand well back and not get involved on either side.

      How can these travel bans etc against Russian oligarchs

        John says:

        Their “billions” represent laundered money

        The London banks/government can freeze black money and keep it if the oligarchs cannot prove a legitimate source

        Just like mafia money is seized…

        These are nnumerous laws on the statutebbook covering this

        But as with HoShBC, which laundered hundreds of billions worth of illegal transactions, the Rule of Law no longer exists in Britain

        It was the US Senate investigation which exposed it – and noone went to jail – the Chief Executife (Green) was even made a Minister by the gangster Cameron in Britain

    Fabians are EVIL says:

    In his book Blair compared Mr Brown to a “mafiosi” and felt that he was “mad, bad and dangerous”.

    If this was the case why the fuck did he and all the retards who sit on labour’s front bench stand by and let him take control of the helm? Why did he not out him? Why did he put the career of Brown ahead of the country?

    What dirt has Brown got on him?


    • 177
      Podiceps says:

      He felt the hot breath of Nemesis on his neck and got out quickly before she caught up with him. He didn’t care for the career of Brown, he didn’t care for the country, but he cared deeply for himself. As an extra safeguard he converted to Catholicism, believing that in this way he could get his sins forgiven — in this, of course, again looking out for number one, the only number that ever mattered to him.

      I am an atheist, but I wish I could believe in the Devil and Hell, as the idea of Blair being subjected to unimaginable pain for all eternity is a cheering one.

      Has somebody told Shell or BP and the supermarkets that oil prices have come down, the only one I know who have dropped prices is Asda, £1.26p petrol and £1.32 diesel, BP I’ve long given up going to with prices way above like £1.39 for diesel, Shell used to have decent prices but when they sold the local refinery prices are now equal to BP prices.

      Reader says:

      I have never met a British person who was starving. I have met a number of people who get peckish again three hours after they have just eaten, and a few who have skipped breakfast, but that is about the extent of it. Most times when people say they have no food in the kitchen they mean they have food but are too lazy and uninspired to cook it and would rather pop out for a ready meal or get a take-away.


    • 202
      You really got me says:

      We had 13 years of Liebour and foodbanks, why didn’t Liebour make sure everybody was getting food after all that’s what giving benefits is all about, helping people when they get into difficulties, oh I forgot, Brown was too busy on American tv on a charity show giving £400 million away of our taxes for mosquito nets, how many starving Brits could have been saved with that amount of money.

      Bulls, china shops says:

      13 years of whitewash and you still believe in Liebour, it was Liebours fault, they couldn’t organise a pss up in a brewery never mind regulating a banking centre, Brown with the aid of his banker mates did some “light” regulating and left the banking centre like a bull in a china shop, the (w)bankers just went mad, yes Brown and Liebours fault, remember Brown even admitted selling the gold off to help one of his banker mates, you just couldn’t make it up.


      • 201
        was it something I said? says:

        The banking ‘crisis’ was just a symptom of the UK pump-priming the economy with 30bn a year of borrowed money to pay 1,000,000 extra public sector workers and the same amount of PFI money flooding the economy.

        All that happened was that ll that additional borrowed money simply found its way into a housing and consumer boom. The banks lent more and more money backed against inflating assets. Everything was great. Until the borrowing had to stop.

        Wow. Who saw that one coming eh?

        Bl*a*ck swan event that.

          The arrogant c*unts really did think that they, uniquely amongst the politicians and economists of the ages, had discovered the perpetual growth engine. They simply couldn’t be reasoned with. They couldn’t be made to see (or admit) that it was all an illusion afloat on an ocean of borrowed money and public sector hiring.
