Burnham Does a Miliband

In today’s Sun, Andy Burnham gets behind a very worthy cause, Page 3 breast cancer charity CoppaFeel. No doubt we can expect the MP for Leigh’s apology to the city of Liverpool by lunchtime.

    Labour have never won an election since 1974 without the Sun being on-side. Now it may be cause and effect in that Murdoch backs the side most likely to win, but it’s no help to Milliband going into the last 12 months to be at war with him.

    He’s stuck fast.

        “During the trial Abu Qatada reportedly spoke out about the conflict in neighbouring Syria, urging the two main jihadist factions there, the al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis), to unite behind the leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri.”

        He isn’t coming back here, having said that.

    Labour Party Internal Memo says:

    We must investigate other ways of using the red tops to improve our voter profile with the working classes, whilst at the same time working to finish off Murdoch and the free press.

    Jumping on to charity bandwagons is a tried and tested concept.

    It shields our naked publicity seeking from negative criticism, by associating our press coverage with voter sensitive issues.

    So please feed back similar ideas that we may use for EM.

    I’m afraid we have had to reject several ideas that have already been put forward anonymously.

    In particular, we wont be sending EM to be photographed talking to ISIS extremists wearing an Uncle Sam suit.

    So please keep the ideas coming in.

    “I PLEDGE TO #RETHINKCANCER”
    Would it not be better to #RETHINK what drives our entire species? Because a few simple questions might quickly identify what it is we are supposed to be doing, plus what is impeding that endeavor. So that instead of curing humanity’s ills being a charitable effort. It became a core component, in our collective quest for survival.

    (1) Mid Staffs: Labour Government ignored MP requests for public inquiry into deaths (The Telegraph, 17 Feb 2013):

    “Former Health Secretaries Andy Burnham and Alan Johnson ignored 81 requests for a public inquiry into Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust in the two years after it was first warned of poor NHS care, it has emerged.”

    (2) Welsh NHS has worst waiting times in UK for life-saving diagnostic tests (The Guardian, Thursday 10 April 2014):

    ‘Official figures show 42% of patients in Wales wait six weeks to be seen compared with just 1.8% in England’.

    “The Welsh Labour government has come under attack for its NHS record including ambulance waiting times and hospital death rates”.

    The anger the Liverpudlians felt about Ed Miliband posing with the sun, was due to the story being about football, and the2nd Hilsborough inquiry, being on going ,this campaign, isn’t a self publicity stunt, it’s for charity, and Eds mistake was not seeing how insensitive it was, totally different
