Just 1 in 5 Say Miliband is Prime Minister in Waiting

Last week this blog pointed out that Ed Miliband is hardly coming across as the Prime Minister in waiting, well today the people agree. A Times/Yougov poll has just 19% saying they can see Ed in Number 10, when the same question was asked of Dave in 2008 the number was 49%. Just 26% think Labour is ready for government. As Morten Morland says in the video above, Britain can do better than this…

    Sarah Millington says:

    He is, like all Labour MPs, a betrayer of the working class in the Great Britain.

    Labour keeps them poor and without hope & aspiration because if they gave the working class genuine opportunity in those Labour stronghold areas Labour know their voter base would collapse.

    Vindictive Labour never forgave the working class for putting Lady Thatcher into Number 10 – three times. Importing and displacing the ethnic British working class for a more compliant foreign one is their aim.

    Shame there is nothing to choose between all three parties – all are big state, high taxing, pro EU self serving troughing pigs who put their careers and party before the country and its people.

    May as well vote Ukip just to remove the cosy nexus of self satisfied failure and national decline that is the three main parties.

    Its about 76 years Labour have run that dump. They also have the lowest life expectancy in the country (east Glasgow). The poor sods deserve better.

    Basil Brush is the best that I can think of ——— but then he’s a sock puppet whose not yet been elected as a MP! However it is rumoured that his dad is pulling a few strings!!

    I’m reliably informed he already knows quite a bit about Money.
    It is made in vast quantities at the Royal Mint, but there is no sweet shop there, which is kind of th’stupid really.
    But, on the bright side paper and ink go in through one gate of the Mint and lots of wads of ‘wonga’ get driven out in vans through another.
    He will find out about Monetary theory and Iceland when he grows a little bigger (and our national debts do too).

    Socialism is theft says:

    That and the inequality of the size of constituencies. How unsurprising that Labour hypocrites agree with this kind of inequality. But the useless Cameroon Tories have only themselves to blame for not being able to cut a deal with the Lib Dems to sort it out.

    Other than Labour tribal followers, activists, BBC and left wing newspaper correspondents WHO are the remainder of the 19% retards in this country?
    I do not like the current lot and recently said so in a Guardian poll but Millibandwaggon and Balls Up are a total waste of space and oxygen, as are most of their shallow cabinet.

    It was like Stalingrad for us lefties. An impossible loss.

    Will says:

    Keep ed in post it’s worth at least 20 seats to the Tories

    The Tories need to remind people that the best people to know how to spend money are individuals themselves not the state.

    The tories need to play dirty in the next election and and state ed miliband stabbed his brother inthe back.

    The definition of a socialist is someone who steals all you money and wants you to be gratefull when they give you 1% of it back. Just witness thier outrage over people being able to spend thier hard earned pensions savings.

    jgm2 says:

    The Lib Dem’s benefit from unequal constituencies too. Their price was an elected house of Lords probably on an AV system. This would have given them an overnight trebling of the number of ‘jobs’ available to Lib Dems.

    While, at first glance, an elected second house is a good idea it does create a constitutional time-bomb. Because maybe not today but at some point in the future (5 years, 10 years, 50 years, whenever) the ‘second chamber’ will give it ‘Hold on a fucking minute – we’re just as elected as you are. In fact we’re more representative of the will of the people than you are.’

    Picture the situation where, as apparently could happen, Miliband gets enough MPs to form a government despite having 4% less of the popular vote.

    Which would be the legitimate representation of the people? An AV chamber or Miliband’s gerrymandered ‘majority’.

    At the moment we don’t have that choice to make. At the moment we’re stuck with Milibands putative gerrymandered ‘majority’ but if we did have the choice then it’s a sure-fire way to start massive civil unrest. It’s the sort of thing people would take sides and die for.

    Best avoided.

    Milliband is definately a prime Minister in waiting….in fact….The longer he waits the better it will be for everybody.

    Mr Nobody says:

    Labour cannot win with Ed as leader, but it’s too late to ditch him now. They’ve made their bed and now they have to lie on it. I really can’t see Miliband junior polling as well as Gordon did in 2010.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
