Jim Grant Speaks
Miliband Apologises to Swindon Labour Leader

We all know who Jim Grant is now. The Swindon Labour leader who Ed Miliband forgot the name of during his train wreck radio interview yesterday has accepted an apology:

“I have spoken to Ed this morning. He apologised for the obvious lack of briefing that he had. But these things happen.”

Just more often to Ed than anyone else…

    These things happen-if an organisation is a shambles, led by a twat.

    I was appalled at the number of immigrants in my local A&E. One of them bandaged my arm and another took me for an x-ray.

    Arnie Weinstock deceased says:

    “lack of briefing” ?

    “these things happen” ?

    Not in a well run organisation.

    Ed Moribund says:

    I am calling for a judge-led inquiry into the lack of briefing I got on this visit. I blame David Cameron and his out-of-touch Conservatives for failing to brief me on who is in my own party.

    Winston says:

    Check out Breitbart’s exposure of the white middle-class protesters in Croydon, yesterday, pretending to be Romanians. C4 and BBC journalists were complicit in the fraud. What a sad indictment of the corrupt British Media, that an American media group are the sole outlet for free and fair reporting.

    Vote UKIP for freedom, democracy and liberty.

    Are that UKIP lot taking their show to Edinburgh this year? Funniest I’ve seen in ages.

    “The Swindon Labour leader who Ed Miliband forgot the name of”
    shouldn’t take it personally. Since Ed can’t even remember what democracy really is. Even though he resorts to repeating that term continually, in erroneous contexts.

    Jenny Talwaught says:

    Yes, these things happen. But Miliband tried to bluster through the interview.

    Luckily the journalistic might of BBC Radio Wiltshire saw through his sly ways.

    Good to see that Militwat’s Radio “accident” has been upgraded to a train wreck, rather than a car crash.

    “Lack of briefing” implies that some underling was to blame. Maybe Milipede cannot know all of the councillors in the country, but it is his fault, yes him, personally, that he did not ask for a list of the local councillors and notes on what they do.

    Has anyone seen any of LibLabCon campaigning in their area? Why are all their candidates and activists hiding? They do not want to face the public and prefer to hide behind their buddies in the Media.

  22. 22
    Popcorn time says:

    Miliwank really does take the public for idiots. The interviewer asked what he thinks of Grant and he said he’s doing a great job five seconds after admitting he’d never heard of him.

    That sound you hear is Labour members screaming “Why didn’t we vote for the other Miliband?!”

  23. 23
    Oliver Cromwell says:

    Keep your nose out Charle, you remember what happened last time?

  24. 24
    To bullshit or not to bulshit, that is the question. says:

    Why didn’t Ed just say he is on a whistle stop election tour and can’t possibly know the names of all the Labour candidates?

    Or failing that have a piece of paper in front of him, preferably not blank.

    The public wouldn’t mind that, it’s all the bullshitting that does the damage.

    The only Country in Europe not to have a Parliament is England says:

    This is what happens when you start running your GE campaign before the local elections and the Eussr election have even been held.
    All about power at all cost and we remember the cost when you and Balls were on the Brown team ED, because those that you screwed the most with your Ponzi scheme are not the turkeys you thought they were.

  36. 36

    What truths does Milliband speak then ?

    That price and rent controls work ? That Labour can be trusted on the economy ? That Milliband has his millionaire shadow cabinet give a toss about ordinary people ?

    Labour, George Galloway, the SWP, UAF, Stop The War, Liberty and every other leftie mouthpiece won’t be commenting on this as it doesn’t involve Western imperialism, Is*ael or any of their other favourite bugbears.

    A group of Iranian fans who created a tribute to Pharrell Williams’ hit song Happy have been arrested. The video shows three men and three unveiled women dancing to the song on the streets and rooftops of Tehran. Police chief Hossein Sajedinia said the “vulgar clip” had “hurt public chastity”, the ISNA news agency said.

    It could have been much worse ….. if the interviewer was so inclined I reckon he could have led Milliband a right merry dance and left him needing counselling.

    Ed Milliband: Your going to tell me arn’t you?

    Reporter: He’s the leader of the labor party.

    You really know how much a threat ukip are to the liblabcon establishment when you see how they and Farage have been treated during the campaign. Absolutely disgusting.

    Yesterday traitor Cameron was extolling the virtues of our veterans on HMS Belfast, how nice, whilst at the same time, ceding more of our parliaments powers to a foreign entity.

    Cameron didn’t win in 2010, he won’t win now and he won’t win in 2014, not with his liberal leadership he won’t.

    The swp and labour activists are the type who shout down free speech and try to ban rallies b right wing organisations. But just can’t see that its the hardworking individuals at the bottom of the pays scale who have been effected most by more competition for low wages.

    Jack Ketch says:

    It was revealed today that Miliband was not even in Swindon. He was sitting in a studio in London and was patched into one local radio station after another PRETENDING that he was “in-town” and appearing to be chummy with a local DJ/presenter who was miles away. Possibly, had he visited the towns for real, he may have been briefed.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
