Washington Unmoved By Miliband Visit

There is no mention of Ed Miliband’s unscheduled ‘brush-by’ with President Obama in Mike Allen’s Playbook, the morning round up of anything going on in Washington that matters to anyone who is anybody in Washington. Sebastian Payne at the Post reports that Ed is scheduled to meet national security adviser Susan Rice this afternoon, officially the White House pointedly says there is “nothing to announce on the president’s schedule”. Presumably at this point Obama will drop in, if he doesn’t have a world war to avoid. Damian McBride, recounting the President’s five snubs of Gordon Brown and subsequent humiliating chat in a kitchen, has his fingers crossed:

“Team Miliband will have left nothing to chance before their man’s meeting at the White House today. For starters, they will have ensured he gets at least as much ceremony and time as David Cameron enjoyed in his first visit to President Bush as leader of the opposition. Aides will have their stopwatches out, ready to squash any suggestion that Mr Miliband was given less time than he was due…

The reality is that every presidential summit, visit, brush-by, drop-in, and walk-and-talk is nowadays so stage-managed that only someone as afflicted by bad luck as Gordon Brown could ever come a cropper. Provided Obama turns up and the White House doesn’t serve bacon sandwiches, today’s meeting will be the diplomatic equivalent of the speaking clock.”

Miliband’s intellectual henchman Stewart Wood was responsible for White House relations under Gordon Brown, surely he will ensure that this time there is no screw up. Interestingly McBride names Dougie Alexander as the source of the leak of the ‘five snubs’ story back in 2009. Which goes some way to explain the enmity between him and Michael Dugher, then Brown’s comms chief…

      It will be a walk and talk. If you let them sit down they only stay longer. No tea and sandwiches either and NO his fucking brother can’t tag along either.

      He has limitless depths of stupidity and we’ve seen only the shallow waters of it so far.

      If any English speaking person in this Country votes for labour and as a consequence making this man our PM then I despair, I really do.

    So while the crisis deepens in the Ukraine and hundreds are murdered in cold blood, Miliband flies across the Atlantic to get his photo taken with Obama.

    At least it means he doesn’t have to answer any difficult questions about his friend and komrade Putin’s actions or about those of his puppets in the east of Ukraine and the whereabouts of some of Putin’s missile launchers.

    Miliband’s (and his Daddy’s,,,and the family friend Hobsbawm’s)politics are far closer to Moscow than Washington. Obama should tell the twat to fuck off…or send him to Guantanamo.

    Pointless visit. ANY visit by us Brits. America aint interested in a little island off Europe that shouts a lot but carries no clout. America wants Britain to be a player in Europe. If we aint, then America will see Germany and France as the real powers in Europe. And that is where any American president will seek to do the business. Britain is just a loud noise from a small bit of rock. Cameron and farage et all not doing Britain any favours by isolating us from the Worlds largest trading block, the EU.
