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.

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

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

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

      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

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

    Witty, punchy, who gave Ed that line ?

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

    But still unelectable.

      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.

    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)

      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.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
