Ed Struggling to be Heard Over the Noise

The latest round of Shadow Cabinet briefing would suggest Ed’s failing to cut through to his own team, let alone the country. They don’t appear to be listening to what he has to say. This was no more apparent than at last Friday’s Shadow Cabinet meeting in Wales. The pointless PR stunt was was held in a plane engine factory, but nobody could turn off the machinery, so they all had to shout at each other. When that didn’t work they had to get in microphones and loud speakers – yet that didn’t really work either. If Ed Miliband says something, but no one can actually understand what it was, did it really happen?

    If a Tory says something, but nobody hears, is it still waycist? (Yes).

    If a Labourite says something, but nobody hears, is it still absolutely correct in every way? (Yes).

    I wonder how many of the Shadow Cabinet got lost on the way back
    from Wales ,after all they are not the sharpest knives in the drawer .

    Poor young Teddy, being derided by News Corp, Mail, Sexpress and Telegraph, if you say it often enough people start to believe you, no matter what you say. Having said that young Teddy does need to stamp his leadership on Liebore, deciding where they want to go and then do it, that is what Maggie did 36 years ago, unfortunately Maigor

    No, the yanks fire frozen chickens to simulate bird strikes at 40,000ft!


  24. 24
    Ctesibius says:

    Hi Ed, I think you will find they are defrosted frozen chickens fired at engines, aircraft canopies, etc., to simulate birdstrikes. If you want to make people think you have a store of funny stories, Ed, like you were one of the ordinary people, you then go on to remind them of the time when someone by mistake loaded a frozen chicken without defrosting it. And fired it cannnon-ball like so it went straight through the aircraft component being tested and on for about half a mile.

    British ex pat in the Middle East says:

    you are all wrong

    Ed must be leader of Nu New Liebore in perpetuity

    he is the ideal embodimeent og metropolitan condescension with his “intellectual self confidence” FFS, just the chap to reconnect with traditional Labour voters deserting in droves to UKIP

    Everyone can huff and puff as much as they like but the bookies are saying that the next PM is going to be the Millipede and if you think they are wrong there is an awful lot of money to be made. Personally, I wouldn’t risk tuppence.
    Which just goes to show what sort of country this one has become.

    Follow the theme of all the TV programs covering the plight of those unable to access government services. The 50,000 who marched in London from BBC centre on Saturday against welfare cut backs. Apart from a margin of ‘could go anyway’ a lot of families just vote tribally. This is being picked up in Milibands recent presentations. ‘Downing’ labour here BTW, is like singing to the choir.
    The trouble with generations having lived on government means they are relliant on government and there’s nothing really in place either for over 50’s or under 20’s to meet the gap of skills development to increase self employability/business development – both of which are just as important as if not more so than job seeking. It’s extremely difficult when you don’t know how, but straight after school is how many successful business people started off. Imagine 7/10 succesful after the first 2 years instead of 1/10. I’d like to see business start up courses organised in schools on a 4 month collaborative project basis with co-operation from external bodies – accountants, lawyers, sales and marketing professionals etc. Self reliance and freedom to choose is the way forward, meantime there are thousands entirely reliant on the state who’ve never known anything else.

    If you want to see Labour in government, see Wales where the NHS is in crisis, schools are failing and hundreds of thousands scrounge benefits.

    Ed Miliband : “Have you ever seen a more incompetent, hopeless, out of touch, u-turning, pledge-breaking, make it up as you go along, back of the envelope, miserable shower than this Prime Minister and this Government?”

    Answer: Yes Ed. I have. The last Labour Government led by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, followed by you and your shadow ministry.

    I live about 4 miles up the road from that factory. I drive past it every day. I was wondering what all that crowds of cheering, flag-waving enthusiastic supporters were.

    I’m lying, of course. I didn’t even know Comical Eddie was in the area.

    Why do lefties do this shit? If a bunch of Tories formed a choir, I don’t think they’d call themselves The Guildford Capitalist Choir!

    There’s a communist choir that busks in Cardiff occasionally. They’re actually not bad, but they are a nerdy lot. Not much of an advertisement for their cause.

    My outstanding memory of them was when they sang the Red Flag, and one doddery old member raised his fist in defiance. Except that, perched at the end of his skinny, wrinkly arm and flappy triceps, it just looked, well, rather pathetic.

    If I had to listen to that nasal whine for half an hour, I’d be tempted to turn on noisy machinery too.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
