Who Said It: Miliband or Kinnock?

Which Labour leader responded to a major continental showdown involving a Tory Prime Minister by warning: “Is it now clear that last weekend the Prime Minister managed to unite the rest of the European Community against [them]? Not Ed Miliband, that was actually Neil Kinnock to Maggie in 1990.

Ed’s own response to Dave’s Juncker defeat was almost exactly the same: “He started with a divided Europe over the Juncker candidacy, and he ended with a united Europe against him. That’s not the only similarity…

Which Labour leader asked of the PM: isn’t the answer that [their] combination of threats, insults and disengagement turned out to be a master class in how to alienate your allies and lose the argument for Britain? That was Ed on Dave this week.

Eerily similar to Kinnock on Thatcher 14 years earlier, when he asked: “Does the Prime Minister not understand that, with her method of conducting affairs, she is throwing away that sound argument and losing both potential allies and necessary influence?” More evidence that Miliband is the heir to Kinnock…

    Neil Kinnock says:

    I didn’t turn Europe against me. I got on my knees and performed fellatio on literally every important bureaucrat in Brussels until they gave me and my wife a job and an obscene salary and pension. Now my son is married to the prime minister of Denmark and has a Labour safe seat lined up so we’re all right. We’re all right. We’re all riiiiiiight.

    The evidence is clear that there is no reasoning with or negotiating the EU dream. The goal of the EU is one empire, one nation, one rule. If you don’t want that there is only one option. Exit.

    A decade from now, Miliband will occupy a very senior but utterly pointless EU job and be wheeled out on BBC news occasionally to say how awful the Tories are.

    Just like Kinnock, indeed.

    Labour's Legacy (1997-2010) says:

    (1) Labour ‘sent out search parties for immigrants’, Lord Mandelson admits (Telegraph, 14 May 2013): “Labour sent out “search parties” for immigrants in a policy which has created a “problem” for British people unable to find work, Lord Mandelson has admitted”.

    (2) Andrew Neather, Labour Senior Advisor to Tony Blair & Gordon Brown said:

    “Mass immigration was the way that the government was going to make the UK truly multicultural” & “the policy was intended, even if this wasn’t its main purpose to rub the right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date”.

    (3) Unemployment benefit map shows party political divide (The Guardian, Thursday 26 January 2012):

    “Twelve of the 15 seats with highest percentage of claimants are held by Labour, while lowest claimant areas are mostly Tory or Lib Dem seats”.

    (4)Hard-working families forced to pay extra £528 extra on council tax bills to cover £2.4BILLION debt left by people who refuse to pay (Daily Mail, 12 January 2014):

    “Nine out of the 10 worst councils for collecting council tax are Labour-run”.

    (5) Patients and NHS staff being let down by Welsh Labour’ (Freedom Central):

    “Patients and NHS staff are being badly let down by the Welsh Labour Government. According to figures published yesterday, in March only 55% of emergency responses to Category A (immediately life-threatening) calls arrived at the scene within 8 minutes. This is despite the target being for 65% of ambulances to arrive within that time.”

    Winston says:

    So will Cameron and so will Clegg. Do not believe the Media and stooges like Guido, there is no difference between the 3 traditional parties. E.g. the BBC has again been slated by the NAO for denying them access to their accounts and documents. Only a Minister can give the NAO the right to find out how the tv tax is spent. Jeremy Hunt refused the NAO permission.

  64. 64
    Mycroft says:

    He is not a new Kinnock, he is a new Michael Foot in pure sentiment.

    Kinnock is doing what he thinks is the right of every working class man, bettering himself.

    But in having done so he has become separated from his roots… John Osborne wrote about it before it happened.

    This is the great ‘problem’ with the Labour party, it knows it can’t ‘raise’ everyone to a high level, because that is factually impossible until we all get our own means of production (which will happen 50-100 years hence) so they are left with dragging others down a lot so the down at heel are raised a little.

  65. 65
    Britain is Extinct. says:

    Slumlords, tenants and shanty houses (formerly garages, and garden houses) deliberately exist, courtesy Labour Councils of Ealing & Newham, who are trying to recruit and attract new voters.

    London Borough of Newham & Southall (in Ealing) have been doing this since Labour were in power for 13 years (1997-2010).

    Slumhouses and illegal tenants = Labour Party’s uncontrolled mass immigration policy.

    Who in this scenario is the EU citizen ?

    Was it perchance the husband who possibly gained it by turning up in Italy the ex colonial power in Eritrea ?

    If so they should relocate to Italy …. but of course they won ‘ t coz in Italy they are given sleeping bags in an unheated ex office block with one tap for running water and a toilet shared by 50 outside the Rome periphery. As opposed to a fully functioning all expenses paid forever xyz bedroomed council house all expenses paid . Before long “daddy ” will cone to stay , how quaint .

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
