Ken Pushes New Zac Attack on Sadiq

This is the new Tory attack poster on Sadiq Khan released this morning, ramming home the line that Labour’s mayoral candidate is “Corbyn’s man in City Hall”. Sadiq nominated Corbyn for leader and has since been attempting an unconvincing differentiation strategy. So he won’t be thrilled to see Ken Livingstone has just helpfully parroted the very same Tory attack line in the Standard.

In an article headlined “London needs to vote for Jeremy Corbyn’s vision of a better city”, Ken tells voters that “Corbyn has the right economic policy” and “he is the last chance we’ve got to create a fairer world”. The former London mayor agrees with Zac – Sadiq is Corbyn’s man in City Hall. Good news for Khan is at least Ken isn’t backing his old mate George Galloway…

Tories Launch Corbyn Attack Video

As Corbyn refuses to speak to the media, the Tories let his words speak for themselves… 

George Osborne v George Osborne

Labour have helpfully dug out this video of Osborne critcising unfunded spending commitments just 12 weeks ago:

“making spending committments is the easiest thing in the world. Spending commitments are superficially attractive. They get ready applause from lobby groups. They get you headlines. But unfunded spending commitments are made with borrowed money and the price is paid by future taxpayers”.

A few weeks later and Osborne pledged £8 billion in unfunded NHS spending commitments…

Inheritance Tax Highlights Millionaire Miliband’s Hypocrisy

The Tories are going to make it a manifesto commitment (again) to raise the inheritance tax threshold so that only millionaires pay it. David Cameron is giving a speech today highlighting the issue. This morning Harman was less than convincing on Marr about the Milibands’ own efforts to avoid the inheritance tax threshold. Why would the Milibands – as Harman claims – pay expensive lawyers to produce a Deed of Variation to not avoid tax?*

CCHQ’s promotion for their manifesto commitment looks like this:

Guido’s version would look like this:

IHT-MILIBAND

Not positive enough?

*Guido’s informed guess is that they entirely avoided paying inheritance tax at the time. Later Ed Miliband and David Miliband probably had to pay some lesser amount of capital gains tax when they realised their profits on the difference in the value they had inherited tax free and the price they received for their shares of what was the family home when it was eventually sold.

New LibDem Attack Ad: “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word” For Ed

The LibDems try to outdo the Greens with a musical attack ad of their own. Guido preferred “I’m sorry”…

Miliband v Murdoch

The Tories have hit back with a fresh attack ad from last night:

Two-Faced Chuka Refuses to Rule Out Toxic ‘Jobs Tax’

That sound you can hear is Labour pulping thousands of their Tory VAT leaflets. They won’t be using yesterday’s attack ad again either, which bashed current and former Tory chancellors for saying they had “no plans” to raise VAT, then going back on their word. “No plans” was the key sound-bite. 

24 hours later, on the pre-PMQs Daily Politics, when asked to rule out a rise in National Insurance, two-faced Chuka Umunna used the exact same choice of words:

“We’ve got absolutely no plans to do so.”

Will Labour rule out the the toxic branded ‘tax on jobs’ or do they just have “no plans” to do so?

Boneheaded: Labour Poster Backfiring

“Labour rules out negative election campaign posters” reported the Observer in January, claiming the party had vowed to “occupy the moral high ground” and “raise the tone of debate”Will Ed Balls and Andy Burnham come to regret this poster launch in Harlow at the weekend?

Not only is that a broken leg being used to represent “Tory cuts”, experts say it belongs to a child. Even worse, the x-ray suggests they may have been a “victim of child abuse”. Prof Christopher Colton tells the Telegraph:

“There are absolutely clear two episodes of violence and possibly the bone bruise is a third… I have run it past a couple of paediatric colleagues are they both recognised this to be very likely non-accidental injury.”

Classy.

Liam Fox shreds Cameron’s Calais scaremongering:

“Sad and disappointed to see our Prime Minister stoop to this level of scaremongering, especially as he knows the Calais agreement is nothing to do with the EU and agreed between the two govts”
