Robot Miliband

Ed Miliband has form for robot-like repetition of the same phrases over and over again, just remember his infamous “these strikes are wrong” interview. Well a compare and contrast of yesterday’s Budget response with his responses from previous years suggests someone should turn him off and on again:

Yesterday: The Chancellor spoke for nearly an hour. But he did not mention one central fact. The working people of Britain are worse off under the Tories”.
2012: The Chancellor spoke for an hour. But there was one phrase that did not pass his lips. One claim he has abandoned. ‘We’re all in this together’”.
 The Chancellor spoke for nearly an hour. But one fact says it all. Growth down last year, this year and next year”.

Yesterday: “It’s a classic Tory con. Give with one hand and take far more away with another.”
2013: “The Chancellor is giving with one hand, and taking far more away with the other.
2012: “All he is doing for ordinary families is giving with one hand and taking far more away with the other”.

Yesterday: “Will he rule out a further tax cut for millionaires to 40p? Just nod your head if you’re ruling it out!”.
2013: “come on. Nod your head if you are getting the 50p tax rate”
2012:Just nod if you’re going to benefit from it. Come on, we’ve got plenty of time.”

Yesterday: “It’s Tory values. It’s Tory choices. It’s the same old Tories
2012: “Wrong choices.  Wrong priorities.  Wrong values. Out of touch. Same old Tories
2011:Every Tory tax cut ends up costing them more. Same old Tories. Same old deceit.”

Yesterday: “2011 – living standards down. 2012 – living standards down. 2013 – living standards down
2013: “Growth last year, down. Growth this year, down. Growth next year, down
2012: “Growth down last year. Growth down this year. Growth down next year”.

Yesterday: “Under them it’s a recovery for the few not the many
2013: “they don’t understand, you need a recovery made by the many not just a few at the top”
2012: “Unfair. Out of touch. For the few, not the many.”

Some of these weren’t terrible the first time round, but please Ed, come up with something new for next time…

    Ed is right.
    The stuff that is growing in this country includes pawnbrokers, loan sharks, pound shops, budget supermarkets and food banks. It does not take a genius to work out what is happening here. However, it seems to be beyond the wit of the media who continue to spew out the “economic recovery” mantra as if it meant anything to people with lower wages, poorer public services and higher living costs

    the Chancellor indeed did speak as always a load of hogwash but the main trouble the people of the UK don’t understand and despite not understanding then at the general election vote for it and then to proceed to condemn it thereafter for the next 5 years

    if this is the the uk’s mindset and always has been in my eyes for the past 55 years I’ve been around is it any wonder that not only the uk has been in turmoil but the wider world as well has been with conflict after conflict with the innocent having to pick up the tab with there thousands/millions of deaths not only here in the uk but throughout the world

    hopefully in my lifetime someone will become a mp who understands the needs for a better way forward someone who can inspire others and then go on to inspire the wider world but at this time all we can do is dream

    C O (Ξ7g) says:

    The studies in the US have shown that high skilled are useful for increasing productivity. But that is mainly because they introduce tension between workers.

    ie. A way of channelling tribalist impulses into positive work efforts.

    Looking at what got O’bama re-elected, and a hint for UKIP:

    It is important for UKIP to target the white majority voters in the UK who do not bother to vote.

    Understanding that diversity tends to turn folk off politically should help tune the message that really needs to go out – responsibly.

    A Harrow newspaper says:

    Immigrant communities should be educated on how to dispose of waste, not demonised, opposition politicans are warning after shocking images reveal the scale of the problem.

    Rubbish piled next to flats with rats coming and going from the mountain of waste in Mollison Way, Edgware, have disgusted neighbours, with readers writing to the Observer claiming that the council’s vision for a ‘Cleaner, Safer and Fairer’ Harrow are not being realised.

    Barry Kendler, a Labour candidate for Edgware in May’s upcoming council elections, said: “The problem is we have had a lot of rhetoric, but not enough action from Susan Hall.

    “In some areas, Harrow has got cleaner, but in others like Edgware where you have a big immigrant community, there is never going to be any progress until you engage with them.”

    Labour leader Councillor David Perry accused Ms Hall of generating ‘a mini frenzy’ over the issue at the time.

    Mr Kendler, whose grandparents were both Romanian, said: “When you come to a new culture, it is difficult no matter who you are. Many of the Romanians I talk to complain that the council do not collect their bins, but that is often because they contaminate them so they cannot be collected”

    Glooptrotter says:

    When all the dust has settled the Left will realise they have a fight on their hands. If Ed threatens to reverse any pension changes he will get thumbs down from senior voters, including the middle-aged with a few pennies in some useless occupational scheme.
    It’s no good uttering the same old shibboleths, like ‘up the workers’ because the modern electorate are more literate and more prone to vote tactically, which is one reason why c’nuts like Glegg just refuse to go away.

    Manufacturing collapsed, under labour even during labour’s debt fueled “boom” years. Now British Manufacturing is healthier than it has been for many many years and getting stronger by the month. We are exporting more than ever.

    Shame you do not like facts Jimmy. Just stick to your out-dated left lies.

    Another sign of success is that a number of pawn shops are closing as people are slowly becoming better off. The labour legacy is coming to an end, thankfully. It will have taken an entire Parliament to mostly fix labour’s mess (which is 5 years less than I thought it would take) but fixing it we are.

    Oh and where was that tripple dip and million more unemployed that your lot falsely predicted?

    You see Jimmy, not only were all of labour’s dire and catastrophic doom laden economic predictions wrong, Jimmy, but Ed Miliband and Ed Balls do not even have the first clue as to WHY their predictions were wrong.

    That proves that Miliband and Balls simply do not understand how the economy works, which also means that labour are NOT fit to govern.

    Add to that labour’s spokesman on Newsnight last night stating clearly that “We can’t trust people to spend their own money” and you have a massive and clear open water between labour and the conservatives in their economic philosophy.

    Jimmy, you support a party which believes that IT always knows best and that we, the public, are far too stupid and immature to be responsible for our own hard earned money. It matters not one jot to labour that we may have spent 45 years working our asses off to earn money from which we save for our old age, To labour, that is money we have given them to look after for us, and we should allow them to say how it is spent!

    The tories, Jimmy (now listen up close because this is REAL fucking important) the Tories TRUST us with OUR OWN MONEY!

    the doubling of the rate of tax for the poorest workers was scrapped. When labour lied about scrapping the 10p rate, when in reality they doubled it.

    The tories have actually scrapped it. They have also cut many other taxes.

    Oh and labour increased more than 100 taxes.

    Queen Victoria's postman says:

    If these layabouts spent their bennies on what it is provided for instead of wasting it at bookies and on booze and fags, there would be a light at the end of this particular tunnel.

    The answer is to provide them with non-transferable ration books or food stamps/tokens in place of cash. Tokens can also be used for eg electricity bills, but if they go over their limit they will have to sweep the streets, clean up the graffiti, flush out the sewers, etc to earn enough to make up the difference. Why are we so soft with these loafers in this country? The workhouse was an excellent idea and the Victorians knew what they were doing.

    MrNedward says:

    I telephoned the HMRC and they said that they do not collect, nor accept payments of the bedroom tax. I have no idea who to pay it to.

    Unless it really is not a tax at all.

    This basic misunderstanding by Ed Balls and Ed Miliband over what is, and what is not an actual tax, may, in part, explain why they also failed to predict the current economic successes. It may also partly explain why they predicted doom and gloom in the form of tripple dip recessions, million plus increases in unemployment and increases in the deficit…

    The answer being that they are not merely misrepresenting what is a tax and what is a reduction in benefits, but actually, that they are so incredibly economically incompetent, that they genuinely do not know the difference and have no economic understanding of how the real world economy works at all.

    Not only were ALL their economic predictions wrong, but they were so far wrong that they were the opposite of what actually happened. This cannot be a fluke or an accident. It can only mean that they genuinely have no fucking clue about economics AT ALL.

    This being the case, it would be literally insane to ever let them be in charge of the economy again.

    MrNedward says:

    I should add, that even worse than Labour just getting their predictions hopelessly wrong, but they have no clue at all about WHY their predictions turned out to be wrong.

    More Cuts are expected .£157 Billion per year of borrowing will be down by £12 Billion this year and decreasing after that until we have a small surplus.£42 Billion interest payments saved meaning each family will save £2000 per household .
    “We are not returning to an Economy that the Public has to Bear” .There will be a Benefits Cap with the exception of OAP ‘s . The Rich are making the Biggest Contribution to decreasing our Debt .Income Inequality lowest in 28 years ?
    What Country was Osborne Talking about We the General Public have brought the Deficit Down through Draconian Cuts and still more to come .We have suffered through Hardship and gone without to Decrease the Deficit too quickly with the resultant cost being Death ,Poverty ,Homelessness and total Despondency .It was worth it to them because they were unaffected .

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.”
