Quote of the Day

LabourList’s Mark Ferguson on Miliband’s woes:

“Last night as I struggled to sleep, I wondered if there could be a worse time for the Tories to take a poll lead. Ten days before a major national election – Labour’s last national test before the general election – is awful timing.

… There is another scenario – where Labour comes second, or perhaps – unthinkably – third in the European elections, and underperforms in the local elections. If potential Labour voters are unmoved by our campaign, our messages and our leadership that could happen – and if it does, Miliband would face the toughest test of an already tough and tested leadership.”

    Hard left nuttism appeals to the core but they’ll vote for you anyway. If you think you’ll win marginals with promises to nationalise everything then you’ll lose.

    We need to keep Ed Milband as the Labour Party Leader, it’s the best chance of a Tory victory. I predict a 30 to 50 seat majority for Dave & Co.

    I wonder if Ed cries himself to sleep?

    Save Ed Miliband. He’s almost as good as Gordon Brown

    Bring back the campaign to save Miliband minor! And big Ed Balls into the bargain.

    Ed Miliband and Ed Balls – the dream ticket for the 2015 General Election.

    Dream ticket for the Tories, that is. A nightmare for Labour, but it was always going to be this way.

    Does Labour never learn? They stuck loyally by Michael Foot when he patently could not win a raffle, let alone a General Election. Miliband is the new Foot.

    It seems that the Euro-Election is not about who represents the UK in Europe, other than the Grauniad, it seems UKIP will numerically, but how badly the rest are going to do and which of the temporary appointees will be “percussively sublimated” and which summarily shot.
    It is really easy to predict.
    Limp Dumps will be eradicated (with the Greens); Clegg will go early to Europe as British Commissioner and Hughes will be voted into his place, prompting Cable to call it a day. Law will be put in as Deputy.
    Labour will tough it out but it the effect will be Ebola virus time for the innards of the Party.
    Tories, Cast Iron Cameron, the most blatant liar the Party has foisted on the Public must be finished. Even the grotesque Conchita can’t out-grotesque Cameron promising to re-negotiate our terms of membership. It is known that a sizeable element of voters want to stay in after a renegotiation. Deluded since there will be no material change in our favour.
    Vote UKIP and put the whole lot of raving pooftahs, shirt-lifters and liars into the next Eurovision contest as redundant bag-carriers and extras.

    Alterius non sit qui suus esse potest says:

    I watched Schindler’s List last night and before dropping off I wandered if these terrible events could ever be replicated in the future.

    Nazism was a product of economic failure post WW1. People became desperate for a government that would address these dire economic conditions and saw the Nazi’s as the answer.

    Voting Labour will ensure our economy is damaged and racism will be on the rise as everyone looks for a scapegoat to blame.

    Do not let Labour give you nightmares. A party that lies about VAT items is not worthy of running a tuck-shop let alone an economy.

    The Labour fliers for the Euros have been delivered here in the North East. There is not one mention of Europe; just the usual anti-Tory ranting. Labour want more EU, but are too frit to say so.

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”

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.
