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…

    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.

      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.

        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.

    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).

    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.
