Quote of the Day

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”

    As usual, Toilets grossly overrates any interest in whats-his-name.

      Boris is a non entity to those of us outside the Crapital…. but still more interesting.

        4th? Methinks Maguire is out of touch with the electorate.
        Only the BBC have him so high. Others below 10th.

      I suppose it was the smell of Glenys’ poached eggs and smoked salmon wafting from the kitchen …… or does she have the help come in even on high days to do that sort of thing ?

    Ed Miliband has the charisma of a fax machine.

    “the fourth most interesting man in British politics”? I don’t think he makes the top 40 but as usual Kelvin Maguire is being kind to Labour.

      And of course why did Toilets leave the gruniad – was he pushed or did he jump of his own accord or could he have bent his Gruniad credit card just a little bit too far?

      Never forget that in the reign of terror – Labour had rupe behind them all the way and laugh of it all was that rupe then jumped over to Cameron – one sinking ship to another – nice move that rupert.

    Not in my name says:

    Ed has a credibility problem on the grand scale.

    Enter stage left Mr Axelgrease, whose role is allegedly election strategy but actually dragged richly across the pond in the vain hope he will shock Ed into looking and behaving something other than a bewildered politico nerd, because Team Ed are equally as shite.

    Not a hope

    Have had an enjoyable day today – just sitting back ‘a few beers’ and occasionally reading the Strawmanson blog.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
