The Only Way is Ed

Yes that is selfie-obsessed Ed Miliband with Chuka Umunna, Emma Thompson, Grayson Perry and Joey Essex at a Labour drinks event last night:

Selfies are so 2013…

    We’re any real voters invited or was this all about getting ‘selfies’ with muppets out there in web land?

      Aardvark says:

      Emma Thompson, resident of wealthy Hampstead, where houses cost millions.

      Like Millipead, she can declare the glories of open immigration, multiculturalism and Socialism while enjoying the delights of a wealthy, mostly White, private school area.

      Socialism is such a great thing.

        Emma Thompson says:

        … yes it is dahling but only for the others.

        The Red Muppet will destroy this Country if voted into power.


        • 42
          Aardvark says:

          Just as long as Emma and her pals in Hampstead get nice Polish waitresses and cleaners – because that’s what really matters.

          The Third Reich was highly efficient at supplying Polish girls as maids for German housewives, of course they were taken by force, but the effect is much the same.

        The British media are cunts says:

        Emma Thompson who campaigned against the expansion of Heathrow and then spends half her life flying out of Heathrow to see her luvvie mates in LA

        She doesn’t do irony.

      • 19
        Andrew Efiong says:

        Chuka’s only half-Nigerian and that’s 50% too much for many. I suspect he left the evening early to show up an Irish function and then claimed he was a Dutchman later in the evening to grab a vote.


        • 24
          Casual observer says:

          If Chizzy is so keen to identify himself as Nigerian shouldn’t he be off doing great things in Nigeria?


          • Andrew Efiong says:

            There’s a big Nigerian community in Britain, he’s trying to ingratiate himself to get votes.


          • Toxic Labour for Spongers, Parasites, Criminals, Green Nazis, Peedos and other Wasters says:

            We can only hope.


          • Akingbola419 says:

            I could do plenty for Nigeria – if only I could get my uncle’s money out – if you can help me by allowing me to transfer the money into your bank account I will give you 5% of the total sum realised.
            All I will need is for you to send me the local tax that the transfer will cost up front.

        If they self identify as Nigerian, why not piss off back there?


        • 91
          Andrew Efiong says:

          Because some of us have successful lives in Britain.


          • Twampersand mk II says:

            Define successful.

            Do you mean inflicting your shit political ideals on the nation whilst constantly self-promoting at tax-payer expense, a la Chuckup?

            Must be handy to be British when it suits, and something else when it doesn’t.

      Hmmmm, Fawkesy a couple of Christmases ago there was a selfie picture on here taken by 2 guys who looked well oiled, a bit like that ghastly picture at the top. I don’t know why these odd balls take selfies, it seems a bit like madness to me, still, I long ago left 20 something or 30 something, still if it keeps tiny minds happy, as long as they don’t do any harm, let them carry on.

      Nice to see so many working class people in the photo with Ed. Just look at all those
      truck drivers, binmen, shop assistants, factory workers and cleaners. Makes you feel proud not to be a socialist hypocrite like Emma Thompson, Grayson Perry et al who
      make more money in a week than they make in a year and then lecture us on voting for a party that looks down it’s nose at us.

        I like his (hers/its) Wallace impression. I wonder if Ed likes dressing up in frocks?


        • 88
          The Old Codger says:

          ” I wonder if Ed likes dressing up in frocks?”, I haven’t got the foggiest, but after revelations over the past few months there could be a few Tories who do, but they do that sort of thing behind closed doors.

    A bunch of freaks living off the backs of boring ‘normal’ people and trying, with some success, to steer things their own weird way. Westminster needs hard-working, boring, non-celebs, not the grandstanding larger-than-life no-hopers we’re now saddled with.

    taxpayer says:

    can somebody explain to me why maria miller is not looking forward to spending time in gaol for her excessive theft of public money, let alone her gaining over £1 million pounds on house flipping, all at taxpayers expense? It appears she has now to pay back £5000 rather than the £90,000 she stole on account of her parents being disabled – thousands of disabled people have dies as a result of social security changes BUT MPs can do what they like!!!!!!!!! Fucking scum my tory MP thinks she done nothing wrong!!! Fucking scum all in it together


    • 38
      The public says:

      Thousands have died? Do you have a source for this unlikely claim. A real source, not just the mouth of Owen Jones.

      on the other point, you are correct. Maria should repay ALL the money. But she’s probably using the precedent set by Labour MP Denis McShane, who only repaid a tiny fraction of what he stole. But he did do some jail time, so that precedent could be used also.

    Fruitcake and proud of it says:

    Having had time to think about it a good move for Farage now would be to challenge Milliband to a TV debate while his stock is so high. Of course Milliband will refuse and Farage could make serious capital out of it. Scared, don’t trust the people, losing the argument, that sort of thing.

    Then when the publicity has died down, do the same to Cameron.

    I don’t agree with all of his policies, but what a breath of fresh air Nigel Farage brings in wanting to cut all this crap from public life! For similar reasons, French voters backed Marine Le Pen – it’s not so much the policies, it’s the crying need to inflict a painful bloody nose on the self-satisfied parasites that now infest so many State legislatures in so much of Europe.

    He then claimed pressure had also been exerted from Downing Street in regard to the 2007 arrests of Gerry McGeough and Vincent McAnespie in relation to the attempted murder of Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) solider Sammy Brush near Aughnacloy, Co Tyrone in 1981.

    “They were arrested, I have a note here, on the 8th of March some time around tea time and taken to the serious crime suite at Antrim,” he said.

    “At 9.10pm I received a phone call from the duty ACC (Assistant Chief Constable) at (PSNI) headquarters.

    “Gerry Adams had telephoned Downing Street demanding their release, Downing Street rang the Chief Constable’s office looking their release and I got a phone call suggesting I should release them.

    “That of course in my mind is attempting to pervert the course of justice and that was conveyed back to headquarters.”

    He added: “I don’t know who the personality in Downing Street was but as a police officer that is totally illegal and unconstitutional.

    Toxic Tories for Landowning Spongers, Parasites, Criminals, Traitors, Peedos, & other Wasters says:

    The royal mail was privatised, although I am against the privatisation. The point is that the sell off was clearly a crooked deal. The Royal Mail was sold off ridiculously cheaply. It was essentially given away, so that the Tories’ bosses in the city could make obscene profits. George Osborne’s best man made £36 million in less than 6 months on this swindle. If that doesn’t stink of massive corruption, I don’t know what does
