Muppet Miliband and Balls

“You know what Mr Speaker, I will take a lecture from almost anyone in the country about the sale of Royal Mail, but not from the two muppets who advised the last Chancellor on selling the gold.”

An attack lined ruined only by the manifesto blunder by the PM – Dave claimed Labour promised to privatise the Royal Mail – actually they were going to part privatise it and keep the majority shareholding in the government’s hands.

    Kermit Defence League says:

    Cameron’s lost the puppet vote by cruelly comparing those nice TV characters with two proven plonkers.

    Sally Bercow says:

    Sorry Cameron, but calling the Milibands’ “Muppets” still doesn’t beat Ed’s
    “Dunce of Downing Street” gag.

    Guido Forks says:

    Wow – so Cameron is comparing the Royal Mail sell off to Brown’s sale of gold. Very brave.

    Dunce of Downing Street says:

    Witty, punchy, who gave Ed that line ?

    And edgy, with his later: ‘Face as red as a postbox’ line.

    But still unelectable.

    Will says:

    How dare dave compare the members of the opposition to the muppets Waldorf and statler are funnier than the opposition and well liked in over 100 countries. Plus stars want to appear with the muppets and they bring entertainment.

    Grant Shapps says:

    The “dunce of Downing Street” brilliant Ed Miliband You’ve given us all a new name for that nugget known as Dave Cameron. Well done whoever came up with that.

    Friendly Fire says:

    Its not a bad line – but wasted in this instance. Everyone knows the culprit for the wrong price being realised is Vince Cable.

    Really and why are you telling me this?

    Yes,and we’ve got Emily Fatbelly, aka Miss Piggy, in the Daily Politics studio.

    Proper laughing at “Dunce of Downing Street”, well played, Mr Miliband, well played.

    A watcher says:

    Was there a football chant starting up towards the end ?

    And I swear it sounded like a woman was being strangled at one point.

    ed martin says:

    did dave oppose the gold sale at the time it was made?

  18. 18
    Ed Sillyband says:

    Exactly. Ed Sillyband was wasting his time asking Cameron, he should have been pestering Vince “low voltage” Cable who was in charge of the sale.

    BBC: Just as balanced in 1975 as we are now says:

    Fucks sake even in 1975 our idea of “balance” was to pitch a debate between Labour and err, Labour.

    Roy Jenkins v Tony Benn debating on EU membership.

    Geezer says:

    Just caught up with this. I didn’t realise Cameron’s turned into an East End gangster. Next he’ll be saying “you slags!” and “Lemme have a butcher’s at that”.

    Anonymous says:

    Well as he didn’t sell it off did he so his views at the time are irrelevant ! just as with all the ex labour ministers who backed the sell of and crippling of royal mail but bottled it and are now bleating !

  36. 36

    You must be so proud at moments like this.

  37. 37
    Fishy says:

    So, Weird Ed is claiming that the Govt have lost a £1m comparing the offer price with the share price today. Just how many people and institutions would have put their hands in their pocket to take a risk on a loss making, inefficient, union ridden basket case at £5.60 a share?

    What a fu’cking thick dip stick Miliband is, displaying once again his incompetence and complete lack of understanding of business.

    Interesting though to hear BBC Toenails telling us all that Miliband had scored a hit and this ‘cost of living’ thing will run. (Pathetic attempt by the BBC to puff up Miliband -who never mentioned the cost of living at PMQs)

    Tories let it happen, as usual?

    M­a­­­­q­bo­­ul says:

    It wasn’t a decision made in Parliament you muppet. So how could Dave oppose it?

    Bill Quango MP says:

    Roy Jenkins thought Tony Benn was mad. Actually mad. Not just a bit eccentric but stark raving bonkers.

    Benn was really only a typical lefty. The more people, reality and events disagreed with him, the more convinced he became he was correct.

    He wasn’t. He was just a fool.

    Ed Moribund says:

    On this Farage/Clegg day I think I should clarify my position on the EU.

    We should be 100% in, unless there are a whole ton of votes in being out, in which case we need to be 100% out.


  43. 43
    Ed Moribund says:

    I’m moving onto the EU next.
    I’m afraid you’ll hear rather a lot of robotic, labour drones saying ‘cost of leaving’

    jgm2 says:

    I didn’t watch the match but I’ve no doubt the next time the referee makes a mistake Wellbeck et al will be in his face giving him the benefit of his opinion.

    Why don’t the referees just whip out a smartphone and show a little compilation of all (say) Welbecks ‘mistakes’ – his point-blank misses for which he’s paid umpty million a year.

    re Sale of gold, presumably Cameron was referring to Brown, but Darling was the last Chancellor, not Brown.

    Kiddy fiddler and tit fondler party. No more excuses and still no apology.

  51. 51
    jgm2 says:

    You think Darling had any say when he was chancellor? Brown spent three years and 500bn quid trying to cover up for his previous ten years of maladministration. You think Darling was in any way involved other than to read out what Brown put in front of him?

    George! Stop gawping!

    Mr Spock says:

    The ‘Dunce of Downing Street” gag was, of course, illogical. On the one hand Weird Ed was accusing Cameron of selling the Royal Mail too cheap because he is a dunce. On the other hand, he was accusing Cameron of selling Royal Mail on the cheap to his mates, hence not a dunce but corrupt. Weird Ed doesn’t do coherent narrative

  55. 55

    It went over my head I’m afraid but I gather from here it was one of the great parliamentary exchanges of the age.

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.”
