Knives Out for Miliband
Round Up of Pre-Results Night Infighting

The Shadow Cabinet are sharpening their knives. One Shadow minister tells the Sindy: “Miliband has got to go. He’s damaged goods, he’s not a Prime Minister,” helpfully adding that “he’s odd-looking and is a bit weird”. Andrew Rawnsley quotes a Shadow Cabinet minister’s verdict that: “the campaign made it all about Ed. That was not sensible.” Another admits in the Sunday Telegraph: “there are people in the country who quite regularly say he is a problem”. A view shared by another Labour MP: “I did not meet a single voter who said anything positive about Ed Miliband out of all the hundreds whose door I knocked on”. Then to top it all oil painting muse Diane Abbott went on the Sunday Politics to lay into her leader’s staff and note that “no-one is going to confuse Ed Miliband with George Clooney any time soon”. Which is just mean.

Tory discipline is holding more steady but that didn’t stop David Davis telling Guido in the Sun on Sunday that Tory HQ are “cheeky little sh*ts”. A Tory insider responds that DD is a “selfish” loser. Basher adds in the Sunday Times his view that “it is time for the government to press the reset button on its European policy” and bring forward the referendum to 2016. Mark Reckless is a bit jumpy in the MoS and Adam Afriyie is off on one again, though the one interesting intervention is from Jackie Doyle Price, who said on Sky News that “there’s definitely a problem with the perception [of Cameron as an out of touch old Etonion]“. That said almost all the Tory jitters are from the awkward squad backbenchers, while Miliband’s snipers are in the Shadow Cabinet…

          • Expat Geordie says:

            I suspect that with Johnson in charge we wouldn’t have had the economic problems that we have been lumbered with. His personal circumstances were nowhere near as privileged as most politicians (council estate, having to leave school early to find a job, having to make a limited household income last until pay day, etc) and would make him more inclined to give a shit about the real working class. He wouldn’t have wrecked private pensions out of envy, and he wouldn’t have inflated the economy via house price increases to get the VAT receipts, and I don’t think that he would have introduced all of the new “green” taxes. Basically Labour under Johnson wouldn’t have screwed over the working man in the same way as it did under Blair and Brown, and for me that is important.

            It is interesting to see the reaction of others when he was appointed shadow chancellor. He said that he knew next to nothing about economics, which to this economics graduate would actually be a good thing. Balls offered to lend him some of his old economics text books, the cheeky twat. Considering the mess that Balls and Brown had made of the economy if I was Johnson I would have told him where he could shove his textbooks and to never darken his door again.

            I still think that Johnson is the only person who would be a good leader of the Labour Party, and would take it back to it’s working class roots. Put it another way, he is the best choice in a very shallow and sparsely populated pool. Realistically, I think that my neighbours cat would make a better leader, and indeed prime minister,but Johnson is the only one who could drag out the traditional Labour vote. He is the one that the tories should be scared of. It wont happen though.

    “Rich northerners are more likely to vote Labour than poor southerners” — sidebar quote.

    That is because, apart from footballers and the Duke of Northumberland, “rich northerners” are nearly all grossly-overpaid public sector parasites.

    Of course they are going to vote Labour.

        I used to love winding up “professional northerners” by telling them to look at a map. The centre of the country is Leeds. When they say, ah, but I mean England, I tend to respond with words along the lines of your still a southerner to me.

      You go about your business and I shall go about mine. For all your righteous intentions you are a bunch of amateurs who do not have the intelligence to know what is going on everywhere around the world on a second by second basis. Have you had party vans waltzing through your front doors? Nope. I doubt no one gives a fucking shit about whatever goes on in your circles. Please do not be offended but you lot are absolutely nothing compared to the grand scheme of things. And without me, regardless of what you perceive to think to be the truth, the world for EVERYONE would be in a far worse state.

      I came your way for pleasure, I enjoy the intrigue and music has got me through shit that basically anyone else would have crumpled from long ago. You don’t want me to pass your way? Don’t fucking threaten me… that is a red rag to the likes of me. He of a status persuasion was incredibly foolish to have posted that lurk remark back late last year. And that is the reason why you have felt so much fucking heat. Ditto in the past with that place that long since refrained from GYAC. I shall bow out from your way in an undisclosed amount of time. Play nice because if you do not you shall really see my dark side. I am top of the food chain Tim, do not be under any doubt that you lot are somehow more important than my work. And the same goes to you Paul you fat mong, if you do not want my presence then all I ask is your fuck off be politely phrased.

      The only reason why EVERYONE on this planet wasn’t slotted as the bells tolled to bring in 2013 was because of me. And that ain’t bluff or bluster. Soon we shall hear for the people have spoken and I am always as ever their shield.

    So if Chukker takes over Labour before May 2015 does he have a realistic chance of uniting moderate voters behind him, or would his candidacy have the reverse effect?
    The Mail seem to be leading an ironic sort of campaign to push him into the leadership spotlight.
